ROME (AP) — Miralem Pjanic and newly signed Edin Dzeko scored in the second half as Roma beat title rival Juventus 2-1 Sunday, leaving the defending champion with two straight losses to start the season.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon hardly moved when Pjanic placed his free kick perfectly over Juventus' wall and into the left corner in the 62nd minute

Pjanic also hit the post midway through the first half.

After Juventus fullback Patrice Evra was sent off for his second yellow card, Dzeko headed home from inside the box in the 79th for his first goal since joining Roma on loan from Manchester City.

Paulo Dybala pulled one back for Juve in the 87th.

Roma has three points, Juventus remains with none.
