Bendtner on a mazy run, great skill from him, he feeds Padoin who can shoot but overplays it in trying to set up Giovinco, who fails to shoot and there's the whistle. 6-1, Juve stay top this week thanks to the magnificent Quagliarella.

In the first of two added minutes.
Almost a goal for Quintero again as his speculative effort nearly catches out Buffon, who drops it but lands on it safely enough.
Not his best effort of the night as the Colombian sends his free-kick well wide.
Free-kick to the hosts about 25 yards from goal. Quintero surely to take this...
Padoin sent free by Giovinco down the right but the high cross is Perin's depsite pressure from Asamoah.
Juve come forward again but Bendtner's shot is blocked from the edge of the box.
Corner Pescara on the left. Weiss to take it right-footed but headed away by Chiellini.
Pescara just want this to end. Even Juve are going through the motions somewhat, but they still look the more likely.
Giovinco should have put Padoin through but he played it in just behind him!
Giovinco with a fantastic turn inside off Padoin's low ball, but his fierce low drive is straight at the keeper, who is fit now.
Juve really could be 10 up here. Meanwhile, keeper Perin is down injured.
Giovinco hits the side netting after rounding the keeper following a fine through ball by Bendtner - the angle was too tight in the end!
Giovinco with a flashing effort just wide of the angle of post and bar!
Giovinco almost wriggles into the box but Pescara clear their lines. Now Vidal fouls a defender and it's a free-kick.
A Juve attack breaks down and the hosts break, Weiss going down on the edge of the box but no foul says the ref.
Zanon rushes forward down the right and has a dig from range but it's well wide.
JUVE SUB: Quagliarella comes off for Bendtner.
Foul on Padoin by Modesto. Will be a long half hour for Pescara. Juve, meanwhile, will bring Bendtner on. Let's see if he can get in on the act.
PESCARA SUB: Vukusic on for Abbruscato.
JUVE SUB: Marrone on for Bonucci.
Padoin on the right getting forward but he can't get the cross away.
JUVE SUB: Isla came off with a knock a few minutea go, Padoin on in his place.
Weiss has a touch. Remember him? He was the next big thing at Manchester City but their world change and it didn't quite work out for him. He has three goals this season, not a bad return in nine games from midfield.
The Quag has gone from three Serie A goals to six in one night. He's always been one of my favourite Italian players to watch but it seems consistency is coming late in his career.
Juve almost cut through the hosts again but this time Pirlo can't find the Quag. Could get 10 here you know.
Free-kick to the hosts now, which Quintero will take - and his fizzing drive forces a good save from Buffon!
OH MY WORD WHAT A GOAL! And Quagliarella does have his hat-trick now as he meets the corner with a ridiculous bicycle kick into the top right! 6-1!
Quagliarella should have scored there as he was put clean through, but a poor first touch pulls him wide and bliocked for a corner.
Pescara cut through Juve this time as Quintero feeds Jonathas, but Chiellini is able to hack behind.
Giovinco tries to control a long ball but the first touch isn't his usual best and Pescara clear.
Corner to Pescara but they wanted a penalty as Quintero's shot skipped up into Chiellini's body. No way.
Bonucci with a good interception as Pescara make a rare forway forward.
Quagliarella drills a low shot just wide, which is the fashion today. They seem to favour putting it across the keeper, who is perhaps a touch slow getting down.
The second half is underway!
Apologies for the 'hat-trick' gaffe; Quag only has two, Vidal got that other one. Too many goals!
Half-time and Juve lead 5-1 thanks in no small part to that double and assist from Fabio Quagliarella.
One minute added time being played.
ANOTHER FOR QUAGLIARELLA! Another driven low finish while cutting in from the right side, across the keeper and in. Poor, poor defending as they just let him run with it and get the shot away. Pirlo with the initial pass. 5-1.
Got a look at a replay of the Asamoah goal, which was a superb overhead kick but may have been offside. Depends whether the Quag and the defender met the ball at the same time or not. Toughier.
Down the other end a long-range effort from the Quag flies well over.
OFF THE LINE BY MARCHISIO! Buffon was rooted to his line at the corner from Quintero, I think Cascione got the touch and it beat the keeper but an acrobatic flying clearance from the midfielder saves the day!
Quintero will take this himself... Deflected off the wall and over for a corner.
Pirlo flies in late on the edge of the box, taking out Quintero, and Pescara have a free-kick. Pirlo is booked.
That's a scoreline more appropriate to the level of play from both sides. 2-1 was very flattering to Pescara. The Quag now has five Serie A goals in eight matches this season.
GREAT GOAL FROM JUVENTUS! 4-1! Giovinco with a rasping finish into the bottom left, a sweet half-volley after a delightful one-two with Quagliarella.
Wild lunge from Chiellini lets Abbruscato in down the right but his cross is headed softly at Buffon by Jonathas.
JUST WIDE BY THE QUAG! A rising left-foot drive from an angle after he controlled a long pass while running in from the left, but it struck the side netting.
Nielsen tries another long shot but he's some way out this time and it's some way wide.
GOAL JUVENTUS! WHAT A GOAL BY ASAMOAH! A bicycle kick after Quagliarella flicked it into the box for him. First-time finish as the Quag's backheel was half-blocked, spinning up in the air behind the Ghanaian.
Quagliarella with a fine pass wide to release Isa, but tis time the Chilean's low ball in is poor, straight to a defender.
Juve need to get their act together lest they concede again! They decide that attack is the best form of defence and develop a passing move from the back...
JUST WIDE BY NIELSEN! Juve failed to clear their lines from a long-throw routine and the ball dropped to the Dane, whose low effort beat the diving Buffon but went about a yard wide of the far post!!
It took them to go two goals down to make any sort of effort to attack but Pescara are right back in it now. Buffon, for all his experience and organisational ability, looked a bit slow getting across both for the goal and the preceding free-kick.
GOAL PESCARA! Cascione with a fine angled header down off the ground and touched on to the post and in by Buffon. Should have saved that.
Quintero hits the post! Or the bar even! Fantastic free-kick from the Pescara man, looping and dipping above the wall and off the bar but away!
Free-kick to Pescara on the left side of the D... Quintero over it....
GOAL JUVENTUS! Quagliarella with a sweet low finish from just inside the box after buying space with a good first touch. Assist from Isla, playing a low ball in from the right after he was released by Marchisio.
Without Verratti Pescara are pretty much playing long ball these days. Very disappointing.
A long Pirlo pass almost releases Asamoah but even he's not quick enough to reach that.
Almost a little scare for Juve as Abbruscato got in behind Barzagli but there was a foul by Jonathas according to the ref. Dubious.
Marchisio almost talks himself into the book but he had a point as his flicked clearance came off the hand of an opponent, yet Pescara get a throw.
Pirlo on the ball now, finding Giovinco, now Vidal but Quagliarella looks backwards to ball-retention rather than driving into the box.
An alarming number of what sound like firecrackers keep going off. Let's hope it's just that.
JUST WIDE BY QUAGLIARELLA! Again Giovinco involved as he finds the Italy forward on the edge of the box, the low driven shot beaten the keeper but also the far post.
Buffon has to come to the edge of his box to gather after a rare long punt forward from the hosts.
That was Giovinco's fourth assist in the league this season; it was Vidal's fifth goal.
GOAL JUVENTUS! Vidal with a crisp, low, right-foot finish across Perin and inside the far left post after a fine through ball from Giovinco, who has been pulling the strings early on. Good goal.
Pescara are hemmed right back in their final third, they can't event get past halfway.
Juve are all over Pescara here. Only a matter of time.
Another long-range effort from Juve but this one from Marchisio flies well over.
Giovinco is right up for this match as he hammers a fizzing low drive across goal and wide.
Another Juve move catches Pescara flat at the back but Asamoah, free on the left side of the box, mis-hits his cross-shot straight to Perin.
Pescara with a tentative move forward but Juve get it back and are able to build another attack.
Almost a goal straight off for Juve as Giovinco goes on a run before unleashing a low left-foot drive that Perin palms behind!
The first half is underway at Stadio Adriatico!
As you may have heard Paul Pogba was ommitted from Juventus' squad as punishment for turning up late to training twice. His agent reacted with fury - the same agent who took him away from Manchester United. I wonder who the problem is here?
