Cristiano Ronaldo mocked Alessandro Florenzi's height during AS Roma v Juventus.

The defeat for Juventus was also marked by the unveiling of their controversial new home strip, which sees the club abandon the traditional black and white strikes in favor of a half white, half black two-tone approach.

"We must continue to believe in it".

Dzeko set up Florenzi for the first after 79 minutes in the Stadio Olimpico with the Bosnian then slotting in the second two minutes into injury time as Juventus fell to just their third defeat this season.
