Juventus replaced at the top of after coming from behind to beat newly-promoted Brescia.

Alfredo Donnarumma fired the hosts, who gave a debut to former and striker Mario Balotelli, into a surprise lead.

An own goal by Venezuela defender Jhon Chancellor levelled the scores before Bosnia-Herzegovina midfielder Miralem Pjanic got the winner.

Juventus were without due to an adductor injury.

Balotelli had several chances on his first appearance for his hometown club after completing a four-match suspension that he was handed at Marseille last season as Brescia made Juve work hard for victory.
