Daniele Rugani scored an added time goal to give Juventus a much-needed 3-2 win over a brave Frosinone on Sunday, their first Serie A win in five games.

Juventus took the lead through Vlahovic in the third minute before Walid Cheddira levelled for Frosinone 11 minutes later and the visitors took the lead in the 27th minute from a Marco Brescianini strike.

Vlahovic scored again in the 32nd minute as the sides went in level at the break, and just as it looked like Juve would need to settle for a draw, Rugani found the net in the 95th minute.

Juventus remain second on 57 points, six behind leaders Internazioale who have two games in hand and play Lecce later on Sunday. Frosinone drop to 16th on 23 points, three above the relegation zone.

Zito Luvumbo scored late in added time to salvage a 1-1 draw for Cagliari at home to Napoli, after Victor Osimhen had given the visitors the lead. The defending champions, Napoli, remain ninth in the standings on 37 points, while Cagliari stay second from bottom with 20 points.

After a scoreless first half, Osimhen found the net with a header in the 65th minute which looked enough to take all three points before Luvumbo struck at the death. “I’ve been missing a goal for a long time, I scored in front of my fans, it’s a huge happiness,” Luvumbo told Dazn.

Francesco Calzona, who took over as Napoli manager from Walter Mazzarri on Monday, has now drawn his opening two games, after the midweek Champions League tie with Barcelona also finished 1-1.

The Bordeaux forward Alberth Elis has undergone surgery after sustaining a serious head injury during a Ligue 2 match against Guingamp, his club said on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Honduras international collided with the Guingamp defender Donatien Gomis just 40 seconds into the game at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux on Saturday, after which he was carried off on a stretcher.

Thirteenth-placed Bordeaux, who secured a 1-0 win over Guingamp, said Elis was rushed to the hospital after the incident and underwent surgery during the night. They added that Elis had to be placed in a protective artificial coma.

“We will be monitoring his condition in hospital over the next few days. At this stage, it is not yet possible to give an opinion on Alberth’s vital and functional prognosis,” Bordeaux said in a statement. “The club therefore expects that it will not be able to communicate any new decisive information for a few days and will not comment further on Alberth’s state of health.”

The Bordeaux head coach, Albert Riera, paid tribute to Elis in his post-match press conference, saying: “My first words are for Alberth. We spoke with the doc and we can’t say anything. He is in the hospital and there is nothing we can say. The victory is for him.”
