  1. Juve escaped with a draw this match ... happy they can­ extend their ubeaten run to 44 matches ... parma was­ the last team beating Juve in the league ... ironically­ it was giovinco who scored the goal

    From , on Wed 26 Sep 10:30
  2. We were lucky to come out with a tie. Fiorentina­ actually outplayed us. Frankly, we looked tired. No one­ was making runs, and Vucinic has been useless for 3­ straight games now. I don't think that any of the­ penalty shouts was really valid, although another­ referee may have given one of those. Overall,­ Fiorentina deserved to win, but Juve did what champions­ do... get the point on the road when not playing well. ­ Forza Juve!!

    From Forza Ferrari, on Tue 25 Sep 21:55
  3. You guys are lucky to be watching this match. Here in­ Canada can't get Serie A so I have RAI­ International. Of all the games RAI is NOT showing­ this one - I'm as frikin angry as hell. Been­ searching for the last 1 1/2 hours to stream it but­ don't know how - any help for the future. ­ Thanks. Enjoy the game - I'm having a heart attack­ here.

    From JC S, on Tue 25 Sep 21:39
  4. #5... I'm actually a Fiorentina supporter. I­ don't like Juventus, or Milan. The play in the area­ wasn't a dive, because there was contact, so then­ what was it? I'm sick of northern fans who­ don't talk football but just say­ "Milan/Juve/Inter is great and everyone else sucks­ we're the best we're number 1". It gets­ old quick.

  5. leeds united are MAGIC

    From Mario, on Tue 25 Sep 21:02
  6. Come on Pirlo you should have took that 45+1mins free­ kick instead.

    From Jack, on Tue 25 Sep 20:37
  7. Fiorentina had the better chances so far in the first­ half... a crossbar hit and a non call on what should­ have been a penalty given in the area are what's­ keeping the scoresheet clean on both sides. Pirlo has­ shown his finesse but the referee has been showing­ obvious favouritism when it comes to bookings so far in­ this match. 2 to Fiorentina and none given to Juve, but­ really what else can you expect?

    From , on Tue 25 Sep 20:36
  8. Juventus are the favroutes to win Look at these players­ Vidal Pirlo Lucio(not playing) Buffon Bouncci Chiellini­ and lot more great players.

    From Jack, on Tue 25 Sep 20:35
  9. Viva juve !
