Champions Juventus scored with two headers in the last quarter of an hour as it came from behind to beat neighbour Torino 2-1 in a dramatic Derby della Mole in Serie A on Saturday.

Torino stunned the host when Nicolas Nkoulou scored from close range following a corner in the ninth minute and could have gone further ahead before halftime.

But, as Juventus wore it down in the second half, substitute Weston McKennie headed the equaliser from a Juan Cuadrado cross in the 78th minute and defender Leonardo Bonucci grabbed the winner with an almost identical goal 11 minutes later.
