    Time:90'
    • Juventus
    • Cagliari
    • 90+3 And that was the last chance of the game.
    • 90+2 That was the chance. Half a chance but still. Vucinic gets the ball out of his feet on the edge of the box but his effort just curls over the bar.
    • 90+1 Vidal is in space but he gets the ball caught under his feet and can’t dig out a cross.
    • 90' Four added minutes for the hosts to grab a winner.
    • 89' Chiellini is forward in search of the winner and he takes a dreadful dive and is rightly booked.
    • 87' Delay over. Three minutes plus the added stuff for the hosts to get the winner otherwise this will be a flatish end to a highly successful season.
    • 85' Bit of a delay while Caceres and Rossettini receive treatment.
    • 84' The ball is delivered at pace to the far post but there is a coming together between Caceres and Rossettini as Pinilla heads over from the edge of the six-yard box.
    • 84' Ibarbo holds the ball well in the corner before drawing the foul from Isla.
    • 82' Eriksson looks to thread a pass through to Ekdal but Chiellini steps out to clear.
    • 81' There only looks like there’ll be only winner from here but Ibarbo has remained bright so they’ll have to keep him quiet and add another if they are to overtake that haul set by Fabio Capello’s side from 2006.
    • 79' Ibarbo again offers an outlet for the visitors but his pass down the line has too much on it.
    • 77' Vidal finds Isla, who takes a touch to steady himself before letting go of a well-struck effort that whistles just over the bar.
    • 76' Chiellini does well again to shackle Ibarbo who again looks to get in behind.
    • 76' The home faithful are in full voice and a winner here would take the roof off this place.
    • 75' Getting a little spiky out there now. Nainggolan with a late one on Caceres.
    • 74' Vidal is down injured for the hosts – slight stoppage.
    • 73' Quagliarella is just a little too over-zealous in his attempts to get to the ball and is adjudged to have fouled his man.
    • 72' Caceres looks for Giaccherini with a switch of play but the ball in just too far in front of him and the visiting defence are offered some respite.
    • 71' Quagliarella for Matri now.
    • 70' Isla receives the ball from Vucinic, cuts in from the right and finds the run of the Montenegrin, who had done well to time his run but Agazzi manages to save.
    • 68' Isla bursts down the right but his whipped cross is just behind Vucinic. Marchisio, arriving late, attempts to take the centre on his chest but takes a heavy touch that almost sneaks in at the far post. What a bizarre goal that would have been.
    • 66' Pinilla sets off down the left and comes back inside but his cross is just cut out.
    • 65' Eriksson enters the fray at the expense of Astori.
    • 64' Giaccherini running amok down the Juve left. This time, he skips past his man to get to the byline but his cross just flashes over the head of the late arriving Vidal.
    • 62' There has been a huge increase in intensity out there.
    • 61' GOAL!!! Giaccherini stands a ball up to the far post and Vidal heads back across the six-yard box. The ball is just out of the reach of Agazzi and Vucinic taps into the empty net.
    • 59' Juve really amping up the pressure now.
    • 58' Isla remains on the periphery of the game but he finds Vucinic inside of him some 25 yards out and right of centre. Vucinic instinctively shoots but his effort is always rising.
    • 57' This is a far, far better performance now.
    • 56' Matri stings the palms of Agazzi from an acute angle.
    • 56' The visitors quell the Juventus tide with some neat midfield passing before looking for Ibarbo in behind but Chiellini does well to usher him off the ball.
    • 54' SAVE!! Great reactions from Agazzi. Giaccherini cut in from the left and drilled an effort that was going in at the near post but for the save.
    • 53 Murru off for Del Fabro
    • 52' Marchisio, who had snuck in behind the visiting full-back, loses all composure and hacks a shot well, well wide.
    • 51' Curious decision. Giovinco hooked for Vucinic.
    • 50' Giaccherini charges down the left, holds off two challenges before lifting a ball to the back post but it is cleared.
    • 49' Giovinco and Matri get in each other’s way and visitors break at speed with Ibarbo, who skips past Caceres but the defender tracks him well to clear for a throw.
    • 47' The hosts are already putting more pressure on the ball.
    • 46' We are underway in the second half – expect a marked improvement from the hosts come the second half.
    • 45+2 They pass with little action, so it is half-time with the visitors leading.
    • 45' Two minutes of the added stuff.
    • 44' Pinilla almost doubles his side’s advantage but is denied at point-blank range.
    • 43' This is the 66th time that the two sides have met in Serie A. Juventus has won on 30 occasions, losing 11 matches and drawing 24 times, so this would be quite a result.
    • 42' Alessandro Matri, who scored 38 goals in 131 appearances for the Rossoblu before his 15.5 euro million transfer to Juventus in 2011, has been poor and I'd surprised if he wasn't hooked at half time.
    • 41' Vidal arrives late at the far post but he just can’t get his shot on target.
    • 39' Giovinco works the channels well, but his cross, fired across the box at pace, is just behind Matri.
    • 38' Juve need to win this one to have a chance of surpassing their own record points haul so the malaise they are showing is quite puzzling.
    • 37' We have a slight hiatus for the injury to Ibarbo.
    • 36' Matri attempts the spectacular with an effort from distance but he gets his timings all wrong and that one is still travelling.
    • 35' Giovinco teases a wonderful cross in with two defenders in close quarters but it is defended well.
    • 34' Chiellini this time with a loose pass out of the back but Ibarbo can’t make anything of it.
    • 33' Giovinco takes the kick and renders the wall obsolete as he manages to address the ball beautifully with his instep to get it up and over the wall but it comes back off the bar with Agazzi reduced to the role of spectator.
    • 32' A posse of home players surrounding the free-kick as Agazzi arranges the wall.
    • 31' Matri flicks the ball to Vidal who is hauled down on the edge by Murru.
    • 30' A lofted ball forward drops to Matri just inside the box but his volley, while well-struck, is blocked before Agazzi claims.
    • 28' The visitors are dropping deeper and deeper now but struggle to hit the break as well as tthe did earlier.
    • 27' Giovinco springs the offside trap and just as he enters the box there is a coming together between the diminutive forward and Astori, who just gets to the ball first.
    • 25' The free-kick is lofted into the box but it drifts out for a goal-kick via the head of Vidal.
    • 24' Matri, who has been pretty isolated up front, is becoming more and more frustrated against his former club. First he gives away a free-kick before winning one a minute later.
    • 24' Bar that brief reaction to the goal, Juventus have been desperately poor.
    • 23' A contested ball on the edge of the area falls to Nainggolan, who, under pressure, strikes wide from 20 yards with a half-volley. Difficult opportunity but he really should be at least working the keeper.
    • 22' The Rossoblu have another corner but this time the delivery from Conti is poor.
    • 21' Ekdal is scythed down by Marchisio and the referee is having a serious word with him there – that was cynical.
    • 20' The resultant corner is cleared with ease.
    • 18' Bonucci has to clear with Pinilla prowling behind him as the Rossoblu look dangerous on the break.
    • 17' The goal appears to have jolted the Bianconeri into action though. This time an attempted through ball is just cut out looking for Giovinco.
    • 16' That was a desperately poor goal for the home side. Ibarbo scuttled past Barzagli and Marchisio before slotting under Storari. Three errors between them, there.
    • 15' Juve look to hit back immediately but a Cagliari head gets to the corner first.
    • 14 Indeed. Barzagli off and Caceres on is his stead.
    • 13' Barzagli is struggling it looks like – he was brushed aside for that goal but he may be coming off.
    • 12' GOAL. Ibarbo skips past Barzagli, holds off Marchisio before slotting past Storari. 1-0
    • 11' Vidal reacts quickest to a break of the ball and looks to curl one top corner. It is is going in as well until Agazzi pushes it wide.
    • 10' Giovinco wriggles free just right of the six-yard box but has his shot blocked.
    • 9' Chance. Ibarbo makes a hash of it though as he strikes the ball off balance and it skews well wide.
    • 8' The visitors look for Dessena at the back post in quick succession. Both balls fail to arrive with the required accuracy – the first he does well to get back into play but the second dirfts out for a goal kick.
    • 6' Giaccherini this time wastes some good possession out wide when he plays the ball inside blind. The ball drifts past Giaccherini but then Cagliari waste some decent possession.
    • 5' Giovinco wins a free-kick just inside the visiting half but Juve elect to play the ball short and wide and the chance breaks down on the right when Isla lets the ball get away from him.
    • 4' Both sides are sitting incredibly deep – with both defences camped on their own 18-yard line.
    • 3' Bit of a slow start out there at the moment with both sides failing to show any sort of urgency – Vidal gets an early bit of space but just as he tries to come back inside his man he is tackled on the halfway line.
    • 2' Cagliari has only scored in three of its last eight league matches, so they should hold no fear for the newly crowned champions.
    • 1' With pleasantries exchanged the referee gives his whistle a toot and we’re underway.
    • 16:55 For Cagliari, Mauricio Pinilla returns after his initial three-game ban was reduced to two, and Albin Ekdal starts against his former employer. However, the game comes too soon for Francesco Pisano and Matias Cabrera, who remain sidelined through injury.
    • 16:50 Juventus manager Antonio Conte is without suspended midfield duo Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba for the club's final home clash of the season. Andrea Barzagli returns after serving a one-match suspension. Leonardo Bonucci also returns while Stephan Lichtsteiner and Gianluigi Buffon are fit enough for the bench.
