However, a De Ligt header on a corner and Dusan Vlahovic battling his way onto a Dybala through ball turned it around for a 2-1 Juve victory.
It was a badly-needed win after losing at home to Inter and effectively being ruled out of the Scudetto race.
“We started badly, immediately a goal down, perhaps we were too sluggish, lost the ball too easily, so it became a very difficult game, but in the end we managed to win,” De Ligt told Sky Sport Italia.
“I prefer to play straight away after a defeat. We now have one game per week, we have to train hard to win and today we deserved the victory.”
