Juventus was prevented from clinching a fourth consecutive Serie A title with a 2-1 loss at Torino on Sunday in a derby marred by fan violence.

After Andrea Pirlo put Juventus ahead with a free kick 35 minutes in, fellow Italy international Matteo Darmian equalized just before halftime and former Juve forward Fabio Quagliarella scored the winner in the 57th.

Before the match, Torino fans assaulted the bus carrying Juve’s players as it approached the stadium, breaking a window. Juventus supporters retaliated by throwing fireworks at Torino counterparts inside the stadium, injuring several.

Juventus needed a win and a Lazio loss to clinch, and Lazio was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Chievo Verona.
