Moise Kean's 89th-minute winner has earned Juventus a 2-1 comeback win in a tricky visit to a talented Sassuolo side, edging the Bianconeri closer to securing a Champions League spot.

Kean, a substitute, controlled a pass with his back to the goal then turned his defender before firing home through the goalkeeper's legs.

With four matches remaining, fourth-placed Juventus are eight points ahead of fifth-placed Roma.

The top four qualify for the Champions League.

Sassuolo took the lead in the 39th-minute when Domenico Berardi used his heel to flick on a through ball from Georgios Kyriakopoulos and Giacomo Raspadori pounded it intothe net from a sharp angle.

Raspadori became the first Italian player born since 2000 to score 10 goals in a single Serie A.

Juventus equalised six minutes later with a solo display of talent from Paulo Dybala, who unleashed a quickfire strike which Sassuolo's defense appeared unprepared for.
