    • 90'+3 And that's the final whistle!! Napoli came out for the second half a changed side and have sent Juventus to yet another defeat!! It's finsihed Napoli 3 Juventus 1!! Thanks for joining us!!
    • 90'+1 Sub for the Azzurri. Off goes Lavezzi to an ovation and on comes German Denis for the closing seconds.
    • 90' There'll be two minutes of stoppage time.
    • 90' Sub now for Napoli. Leandro Rinaudo replaces Zuniga.
    • 89' And Lavezzi is booked for his shirt off celebration!
    • 88' Napoli counter!! Great ball in for Lavezzi! from Campagnaro! GOAL NAPOLI!! Lavezzi has time and space to pick his spot and fires it past Manninger!!
    • 87' Diego again drives Juve forward. Zebina to Amuari. Grygera dinks in the cross, headed out as far as Chiellini. Grosso now, blocked and that's away!
    • 85' The corner comes in... played out to MARCHISIO!! What a shot, but that's a great stop by De Sanctis!! Don't know how much he saw but the keeper got everything behind it and hung on to the ball!!
    • 84' Ball over the top of the Napoli defence! Campagnaro's clearance smacks into Grava and Juve have a corner!! That could have gone anywhere!
    • 83' Juventus caught offside as Napoli step up.
    • 82' Change for Napoli. Hamsik is off and on comes Luca Cigarini.
    • 80' We're in the last ten minutes as Campagnaro goes down off the ball.
    • 79' Still Napoli come forward. They can sense a third goal in this match.
    • 78' Quagliarella now for Gargano. Napoli are playing the ball around, but Zuniga's had enough and plays in the long ball. Wayward pass.
    • 77' Juve are going for broke. They're committing men forward, but that's a poor ball and De Sanctis will watch that bounce behind for a goal kick.
    • 76' End to end stuff gives Juve a corner. That's a firm header away to clear the danger.
    • 75' Nice work by the groundstaff, poor delivery by Napoli! Goal kick Juventus.
    • 74' That's wasted and Napoli surge forward again. Gross gives away a corner with a two-footed challenge - fortunately that's on the corner flag - which has snapped.
    • 74' Diego goes down. Free-kick to Juventus on the halfway line.
    • 73' And Zaccheroni's gamble looks to have failed. Juventus have thrown away another lead!!
    • 72' GOAL NAPOLI!! The stretching Quagliarella pops in at the far post to direct the ball home after Manninger fails to cut out a Napoli free-kick. They lead 2-1!!
    • 69' Poor ball by Quagliarella now. Maggio wins it back. looks for Lavezzi and the flag is up.
    • 69' Diego takes it, headed away, played back in and Amauri heads over under pressure!
    • 68' Grygera has gone to right back as Juve change to a back three. And he wins a free-kick some 40 yards out!
    • 67' Pazienza heads it forward. Away by Chiellini.
    • 66' And that's Del Piero's last contribution. Zdenek Grygera is on. A defender for a striker. Looks like Zaccheroni is settling for a point already!
    • 65' That's cleared, good counter by Juve. Del Piero with the shot ! No power on that one. Simple save for De Sanctis.
    • 64' Meanwhile, Napoli have a corner. This has been a much better half for Napoli and Juventus are rocking at the moment.
    • 62' Sub for Juventus. No surprise that the ill-tempered Camoranesi is withdrawn and on comes Diego.
    • 61' Again Napoli win it back. Zuniga with the delivery!! Poor header by Maggio over the bar!! That was another free header but he just couldn't get high enough to direct the ball on target!!
    • 61' Lavezzi again but that's a poor first touch which hands possession back to Juventus.
    • 60' That's looking for Lavezzi, hooked clear by the Juve backline.
    • 58' Campagnaro has gone down under Camoranesi's trip. No card from the ref, but he must be on a final warning!
    • 55' That's out for a second corner. Falls to Michele Pazienza, chips it to Lavezzi at the far post but the flag's up!
    • 54' Quagliarella finds Levezzi. To Maggio!! Shoots through a crowd of players!! Aand Manninger pushes it behind for a corner!
    • 53' And Quagliarella almost puts Hamsik in again! This time Manninger is quick off the mark to claim!
    • 51' The Napoli man will be the most relieved man on the pitch!
    • 50' GOAL NAPOLI!!! And it's Hamsik!! Napoli race down the Juve flank with Quagliarella, great delivery!! Grosso loses hs man and Hamsik plants a great header beyond Manninger!!
    • 49' Chiellini with an audacious overhead kick. That's off target, but he fancies his chances tonight after that opening goal!!
    • 49' And straight up the other end, Juventus have a corner!
    • 47' HE'S HIT THE BAR!!!! It stays Napoli 0 Juventus 1!! Incredible start to the second half!
    • 47' Hamsik steps up...
    • 46' Zebina looks baffled but the ref has given it for a shirt tug on Quagliarella!!
    • 46' Napoli win possession and they have a penalty!!
    • 46' Poor pass hands Juve an instant throw.
    • 46' Napoli kick off.
    • - And here come the teams for the second period.
    • 45'+3 Headed away by Amauri and there's the whistle!! It's Napoli 0 Juventus 1 at the break!
    • 45'+3 Camoranesi with another foul on Zuniga. Free-kick comes in, half cleared and Del Piero completes the clearance. But not for long! Back it comes. Napoli corner!
    • 45'+2 Hamsik tries to find Quagliarella and it's cut out. That's been the problem for Napoli tonight. The final ball just hasn't been good enough.
    • 45+1 Zuniga clears the delivery away.
    • 45' And it IS three minutes. And there's a free-kick won by Del Piero midway in the Napoli half.
    • 45' Last minute, but there'll probably be at least three minutes of stoppage time.
    • 44' Gargano brings it foward. Maggio now on the right, his cross is cleared as far as Gargano. Very few options and Fabio Grosso will get it away.
    • 43' Grava goes down and that'll be yet another free-kick.
    • 43' Headed away and Quagliarella is penalised for a foul in the Juve box.
    • 42' And up the other end, Lavezzi wins a corner out of nothing!
    • 41' Pass by Candreva into the Napoli box, but there's not a black and white short in sight.
    • 41' We're in the last five minutes.
    • 39' Free-kick to Napoli now just in the Juve half. Played short. Chipped in but that's headed away and Amauri is wrestled to the ground as he tries to break! That could easily have been another yellow. Blatant!
    • 38' That's better by JuUve as they come forward again. But that isn't!! Awful pass by Felipe Melo hands possession to Napoli.
    • 38' Played in - and Candreva's strayed offside!
    • 37' Again the whistkes ring out as Juve have possession. Foul by Zuniga hands a free-kick to Juve.
    • 37' Ball is lofted in, and that's catching practice for Manninger.
    • 36' Poor delivery by Grava, but Zebina concedes the throw under pressure.
    • 35' That's a poor ball as Napoli look to build again., but they win a free-kick in their own half.
    • 33' QUAGLIARELLA!! He's in but the flag's up!! He was yards onside when that ball was played through, although Manninger was out quick to smother the danger!
    • 32' But again Juve counter!! Good run by Zebina, beats Campagnaro!! He's in at the near post, out comes De Sanctis and what an awful finish!! Scuffed he shot with the outside of his right foot for a goal kick!! Poor end to a promising move!!
    • 31' The pass is cut out as Juve attack and Napoli can come forward again as they look for a leveller before the break.
    • 30' Maggio almost benefits from a mishit. It spirals up into the air, but the Napoli man miscontrols it and it's another Juve goal kick.
    • 29' More wrestling by Paolo Cannavaro. Complaints by Zaccheroni, but he should talk!
    • 28' Played short by Hamsik. Eventually the ball is lofted to the far post looking for Paolo Cannavaro. Too long and that's a Juve goal kick.
    • 27' Levezzi wins a corner for Napoli!
    • 27' Now it's Del Piero's trun to hit the deck. No flow to the game tonight.
    • 26' In comes the Napoli free-kick. Loads of shirt-tugging in the box, notably by Chiellini, but it's Marek Hamsik who just fails to connect with the delivery!
    • 24' Camoranesi gives away another foul and then moans at the ref! He's got to be careful here, but the ref contents himself with just a word this time!
    • 23' Walter Gargano brings it forward for Napoli - and now Campagnaro is clattered by Mauro Camoranesi!! Yellow card for Camoranesi.
    • 23' Good play by Candreva. Beats two players but tries to take on a third and loses out.
    • 22' Manninger looks like he's never been away! Assured keeping - and that's something Juve have been missing recentrly!
    • 20' LEVEZZI!! Great strike from just outside the box!! Tipped over by Manninger!!!
    • 19' It's yellow! And the replay shows that Grava made a lot of an arm across the face!
    • 19' Grava's gone down off the ball!! Del Piero involved!! What colour is the card going to be?
    • 18' But this time it is a Napoli free-kick. Chiellini thumps it into the air with a rushed clearance. Falls to Fabio Quagliarella!! Tries the shot!! Comfortable save for Manninger!
    • 16' Jonathan Zebina - looked like a push as he challenged for that ball but nothing doing says the ref.
    • 15' Throw for Juve on the halfway line. That goes through to De Sanctis who'll clear long.
    • 13' The upshot is that Juve have a free-kick. Floated in, beyond Morgan De Sanctis and out for a goal kick.
    • 12' Yellow card for Gianluca Grava as Candreva hits the deck. Tempers are beginning to fray out there!
    • 11' He's fit to continue and tries to cut into the box. Good block by Chiellini.
    • 10' Maggio is down needing treatment now.
    • 9' And that's an early change for Juve!! Christioan Poulsen's night is already over and on comes Antonio Candreva.
    • 9' Juan Camilo Zuniga goes down under Alessandro Del Piero's challenge. No foul says the ref.
    • 9' What a return for the Juve defender!!
    • 7' In it comes..flicked on at the near post and there's CHIELLINI!!! GOAL JUVE!!! Chiellini has a free header from close-range and puts Juve 1-0 up!!
    • 7' And now Juve win a free-kick. This is in a dangerous position!!
    • 6' Juve win it back - the whistles ring out around the Stadio San Paolo every time Juventus win the ball!
    • 6' Michele Pacienza goes down. That's another Napoli free-kick.
    • 5' MAGGIO!! Tries a shot from out wide, but it drifts over Manninger's bar. That's a measure of the Napoli man's confidence!!
    • 4' Long ball for Ezequiiel Lavezzi, over he goes. No foul and the Argentine bites into the follow-up tackle.
    • 3' Maggio again on the right flank. Looks like we'll be seeing a lot of him tonight.
    • 2' Launches it long but that's another cheap free-kick given away by Juve. Just inside the Napoli half.
    • 2' Christian Maggio tries to make progress, but the ball's safe with Manninger.
    • 2' Free-kick for Napoli. Claudio Marchisio the offender.
    • 1' A poor pass sets Napoli on immediate attack. Good covering though by the Juve defence.
    • 1' And it's Juve who get us underway!
    • - David Trezeguet and Sebastian Giovinco put Juventus two-up but a brace from Marek Hamsik and Datolo saw Napoli take the points!
    • - If this one is anything like the match at the Stadio Olimpico Torino, we're in for a treat! It ended Juve 2 Napoli 3.
    • - And here come the teams!
    • - So who will win the battle of the Cannavaro brothers?
    • - And Juve will also hope the return of Giorgio Chiellini will help to plug a defence that has been leaking goals - although one 45-yard strike from Antonio Cassano was enough to edge Sampdoria to a 1-0 win in the Bianconeri's last match.
    • - But Alberto Zaccheroni has narrowly avoided a goalkeeping crisis with the return of Alex Manninger after Antonio Chimenti broke his hand punching a table! Primavera keepers Carlo Pinsoglio and Antonio Piccolo travelled with the squad.
    • - So no surprises in the Napoli line up, and the Azzurri will fancy their chances after holding Milan to a 1-1 draw at the San Siro last time out. Hugo Campagnaro was the man on target.
    • - And the Juventus XI: Manninger; Zebina, Cannavaro, Chiellini, Grosso; Camoranesi, Felipe Melo, Poulsen, Marchisio; Amauri, Del Piero.
    • - And the teams are in! napoli line up as: De Sanctis; Grava, Cannavaro, Campagnaro: Maggio, Pazienza, Gargano, Zuniga; Hamsik, Quagliarella; Lavezzi.
    • - It's been a torrid time for the Bianconeri. They currently lie well off the pace in sixth and were dumped out of the Europa League by Fulham. And director Roberto Bettega has also had to dismiss Gianluigi Buffon transfer rumours.
