90+3
Eurosport UK

And that’s it from the Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi as Juve open up a three point lead at the top of the table.

90+2
Eurosport UK

Pirlo loses the ball in midfield but Vidal tracks back expertly to win the ball and then a free-kick. Quagliarella plays a loose ball to Pirlo though to possibly offer one last chance of a goal.

90+1
Eurosport UK

Padoin wins a throw down the right as the game enters the first of a minimum of three minutes of added time.

90'
Eurosport UK

Isla replaces Matri as the Old Lady look to run down the clock.

89'
Eurosport UK

Bar a 15 minute spell after the Chievo goal, Juve have been ragged this half.

88'
Eurosport UK

Matri with a late challenge just inside the host’s half.

87'
Eurosport UK

Dainelli is down in a heap with what looks like a twisted knee, but, as Corini has used all three subs, he will either have to carry on or the hosts will play it out with ten men.

85'
Eurosport UK

Bar the goal, there has been very little threat to either goal thus far this half.

84'
Eurosport UK

Vidal has a shot from distance but it is blocked by Dainelli.

83'
Eurosport UK

Matri is lucky to get away with a handball but then follows that up with a very poor pass out wide that just goes out of play. Very poor second half from that man.

81'
Eurosport UK

Juve have ten or so minutes to hold on to again open up a three point advantage at the top of the table.

80'
Eurosport UK

Matri is again caught offside – he is a very frustrating player: he has much talent but can be incredibly infuriating.

78'
Eurosport UK

Lichtsteiner is replaced by Padoin for the men from Turin.

77'
Eurosport UK

Acerbi reads an attempted through-ball from Pirlo to step out and start a break for the hosts. Barzagli mops up at the back though.

75'
Eurosport UK

Pellissier thrashes a ball across the box but Juve clear. Pirlo finds De Ceglie, whose shot, while well-struck, is claimed by Puggioni courtesy of a deflection.

74'
Eurosport UK

Pellissier, top scorer for the hosts in Serie A, replaces Cofie as Corini chases that leveller.

73'
Eurosport UK

Chievo preparing a change with Pellissier warming up.

72'
Eurosport UK

Quagliarella exchanges passes with Vidal but his shot from the edge of the area is blocked.

71'
Eurosport UK

De Ceglie in the book for a late challenge.

70'
Eurosport UK

Pogba elects to shoot from outside the box when he may have been better served finding Quagliarella wide of him. Juve upping the pressure now.

69'
Eurosport UK

Pogba wins a corner but Pirlo wastes it as it goes straight out of play.

67'
Eurosport UK

The champions have settled and responded now – and they begin to pin their hosts back. Credit Chievo though they are really running hard.

65'
Eurosport UK

Quagliarella goes a fraction too soon as Pirlo looks to pick him out.

64'
Eurosport UK

Juve slow the pace of the game right down now.

62'
Eurosport UK

Pirlo is hacked down now.

61'
Eurosport UK

Pogba looks to lead a break for the visitors but Cofie scythes him down and is rightly booked.

59'
Eurosport UK

Quagliarella is straight into the thick of things. He finds Matri, who turns this way and that before dallying too long and allowing the hosts to get a block in. That’s Juve’s first real threat this half.

58'
Eurosport UK

Giovinco is replaced by Quagliarella for Juve.

57'
Eurosport UK

Giovinco receives the pass from Pogba and initiates a break for the visitors. The ball is worked short to Lichtsteiner, who elects to shoot from an outrageous angle. Blocked.

56'
Eurosport UK

The hosts have an urgency about their play now. Thereau picks up some space in between midfield and defence and runs at the Juve defence. His shot doesn’t have the required pace and Buffon claims.

54'
Eurosport UK

The Flying Donkeys are putting more pressure higher up the field and it has paid dividends.

52'
Eurosport UK

GOOOAL!! Incredible. The hosts are back in it. The Juve back three fail to attack a high ball into the box. The break of the ball falls to Thereau, who lashes it past Buffon from just inside the box.

50'
Eurosport UK

Buffon comes to claim a lofted ball into the box – his composure is quite something to behold.

48'
Eurosport UK

The hosts have again started brightly.

47'
Eurosport UK

Sampirisi and Cesar have been hooked for Seymour and Acerbi.

46'
Eurosport UK

Back underway. Double substitution to report.

45'
Eurosport UK

That's it from the first half.

44'
Eurosport UK

This has been an utterly professional performance from the visitors.

42'
Eurosport UK

GOOAL!! Great second goal. If the first was a wonderful individual strike, this one is a team goal of some standing. The visitors break with Giovinco, who slips the ball to Matri, who turns his man before returning the ball to his strike partner inside the box. Giovinco back heels to Lichtsteiner, who lifts the ball over Puggioni into the top corner to double his side’s advantage.

41'
Eurosport UK

Pirlo picks out a tremendous ball for Lichtsteiner. The ball is so good it dictates the Swiss’ run inside Jokic but the former Lazio man appears to take the ball down with his hand to evade his opposite number’s attempt at a clearance but it matters little as Puggioni saves.

39'
Eurosport UK

Paloschi is again on the shoulder of the last defender. This time it is Marrone but the through-ball is over-hit.

38'
Eurosport UK

Juve look comfortable but need to turn their superiority into further advantage.

37'
Eurosport UK

Pogba is having a tremendous game out there and works back to steal the ball from Jokic and then win a free-kick.

36'
Eurosport UK

Pirlo is over he free-kick, 30 yards out and just right of centre. Pirlo gets the ball up and over the wall but Puggioni had read it and easily claims.

34'
Eurosport UK

Pirlo is becoming more and more influential and he finds Giovinco, who draws the foul from Cesar. The defender is in the book for the foul.

32'
Eurosport UK

Juve retaining the ball well now.

30'
Eurosport UK

Lichtsteiner is again offside. Before Chievo get in behind with Paloschi but Buffon is off his line to slide in at the feet of the forward to clear.

28'
Eurosport UK

Giovinco draws a foul outside the box near the byline from Jokic. Juve load the box but Pirlo lifts it to Vidal on the edge, who has a well-struck volley turned around the post by Andreolli. Great reaction block as that was going in.

26'
Eurosport UK

Vidal gives away a free-kick that is swung over to the far post and Buffon is off his line to punch clear.

24'
Eurosport UK

Lichtsteiner is adjudged to be offside following an angled, lofted pass from Pogba – that was a tight decision but Puggioni was smartly off his line to block.

23'
Eurosport UK

Rigoni finds Paloschi on the shoulder of the defender and the forward hooks an effort towards goal from an acute angle but can’t get the required power.

22'
Eurosport UK

The Flying Donkeys, having started brightly, faded since the goal but Paloschi looks dangerous and he attempts to get in behind Marrone but the forward is crowded out by a gaggle of Juve defenders.

20'
Eurosport UK

That was a big chance and Giovinco really should have scored there.

19'
Eurosport UK

Giovinco is picking up little pockets of space in between midfield and defence. He receives the ball from Vidal, exchanges passes with Matri to get in behind Cesar, but, off balance, he drags the effort wide of the goal.

17'
Eurosport UK

Pogba finds De Ceglie in the channel but a Chievo foot gets back at him. Chievo break and Paloschi has a sight of goal but De Ceglie gets back at him to block from inside the box.

16'
Eurosport UK

Matri, despite that quality goal, has been a little bit loose linking the play thus far and again he lets the ball get away from him.

14'
Eurosport UK

Juve come again with Pogba but his cross is too close to Puggioni.

13'
Eurosport UK

Pirlo draws a free-kick from Rigoni and then releases Giovinco. The diminutive frontman shoots on sight from 25 yards out but it dribbles wide.

11'
Eurosport UK

That was some goal and will do much to settle the Old Lady, who have had a tumultuous week.

10'
Eurosport UK

GOOOAL!! Dispatched as stylishly as it was created. What a strike. Vidal lifts the ball over the full-back to Matri. The ball is dropping just on the edge of the six-yard box and Matri fires the volley back across Puggioni. A goal of utter beauty.

9'
Eurosport UK

Lichtsteiner is back on but again in the wars as he goes down under another challenge but the referee waves away his appeals.

8'
Eurosport UK

Cofie looks to have made a clean challenge on Caceres. The referee appears to have penalised the nature of the tackle – which began off the ground – rather than the actual result of the challenge. The Old Lady work it short to Vidal whose shot has power from about 30 yards but not the direction.

6'
Eurosport UK

The Flying Donkeys have run very aggressively thus far and this time Pirlo is put under pressure before he tries to force the pass. The hosts break but Juve regroup.

5'
Eurosport UK

Chievo have only lost two games at home in Serie A this season.

4'
Eurosport UK

Lichtsteiner goes down under the challenge and he looks to have turned his ankle. He hobbles off for some treatment. The challenge from Jokic wasn’t malicious but the Swiss looks like he may have to come off.

2'
Eurosport UK

Quite a sedate start here with both sides content with allowing each defence time and space to stroke the ball around at the back.

1'
Eurosport UK

Juve get us underway.
