Paolo Di Canio says Leonardo Bonucci was not guilty for Lazio's late equaliser and put the blame on two Juventus players.

The Old Lady were held to a 1-1 draw by Lazio on Sunday with Felipe Caicedo who scored a late equalizer after rounding Leonardo Bonucci inside the box.

The 32-year-old was set up by Joaquin Correa who dribbled past several Juventus players.

"Bonucci is the only one who is not guilty,” the former Italian striker told Sky Sport.

“He stayed between the goal and his opponent and he did well. Caicedo moved the ball quickly and he deserves the praise for anticipating a possible intervention of Bonucci.

“The problem is that Correa dribbled past the two central midfielders who should be the bulwarks in front of the defence,” the former Juventus and Lazio striker added.

“He nutmegged [Rodrigo] Bentancur who should have sent Correa wide. It was too easy to dribble him.

“Especially if [Juan] Cuadrado is not nearby, you must send your opponent wide and then there is [Adrien] Rabiot who didn’t even make a tackle.”

Juventus have 13 points in seven games and are currently out a Champions League placement.
