    Time:90'
    • Chievo
    • Juventus
    • 90+4' THERE GOES THE WHISTLE! Chievo have grabbed a late point. Was a great finish to the match, and the home side were worth their point.
    • 90+2' GOAL FOR CHIEVO! Ball breaks to Pellissier in the box from Granoche's header and he slips the ball past Storari. Fine finish from 12 yards out. Would you believe it.
    • 89' Four minutes to be added to the match.
    • 88' Salihamidzic is fouled by Mantovani, who has already been booked.
    • 87' Armand Traore replaces Simone Pepe as Juve try to see this match out.
    • 86' Sardo fancies his chances from 35 yards out. His shot is wide of the target, and Juve are going to make another change.
    • 85' Corner comes to nothing. Poor delivery. Juve with plenty of numbers back in their own half.
    • 84' Nicola Legrottaglie takes over from Milos Krasic.
    • 83' Granoche is appealing for a handball against Chiellini as Chievo earn a corner.
    • 82' All hands to the pump now for Juve with Krasic back closing down space. Going to be another change here.
    • 81' Pellissier rattles a shot at goal, but Storari makes a solid stop. Didn't have the direction.
    • 80' Agony for Moscardelli as he hooks a volley wide of the post. That looked a certain leveller.
    • 79' Four yellow cards for Chievo today, compared to the two for Juventus. Has never been a dirty game. There was also the red card, of course.
    • 78' Squizzi tries to hammer the ball long, but knocks it out before Moscardelli is wide with a shot from his own half. All a bit too ambitious.
    • 77' Cheivo running out of minutes and ideas in Verona.
    • 76' Mantovani is booked for what seemed like an elbow on Chiellini.
    • 75' Should have been a second goal for Juve! Krasic races clear and rounded Squizzi, but he hits the bar and Chievo remain alive. What a chance to win it.
    • 74' Going to be a change for the home side. Fernandes departs and on comes Bogliacino.
    • 73' Here come Chievo. Moscardelli fires over a cross, but Chiellini is on hand to clear. Chievo can't make the pressure tell from the corner. Juve inching ever closer to the three points.
    • 72' Juve will be more than happy to accept the 1-0 win. Chievo will remain 13th in the table unless they find a late goal.
    • 71' Guana is brought down by Krasic, but Chievo can't cash in.
    • 70' Fantastic defending from Chiellini. He throws himself in front of the ball to block a shot. Brave, brave stuff.
    • 69' Chievo opt for the long ball route, but Juventus are equal to the task as they put the ball out of the danger zone.
    • 68' Going to be a change here for Chievo. Keeper Sorrentino is carrying an injury. He departs to be replaced by Lorenzo Squizzi.
    • 67' Play raging from end to end. Iaquinta with the chance to seal the three points from Krasic's pass, but Sorrentino is out sharply to make the block.
    • 66' Great ball in by Sardo, but Granoche heads wide of the rigging. So close for Chievo.
    • 65' Krasic attempts to relieve the pressure at the other end, but his shot is high and wide of the target.
    • 64' Pellissier is just offside as he tried to spring the trap. There was not much in that call.
    • 63' Storari knocks the ball out of play to allow Pellissier to receive some treatment.
    • 62' Constant throws over a corner, but Pellissier has nodded that over the bar. Just couldn't keep his effort down.
    • 61' Good defending by Grosso before Sardo hammers a volley over the target. Chievo suddenly piling on the pressure.
    • 60' Another change is on the way. Marcolini makes way for Pablo Granoche.
    • 59' Fernandes is booked for a late foul on Chiellini as we approach the hour mark.
    • 58' Juventus on the attack, but Sorensen gives the ball away. Sardo comes forward, but a poor cross is food and drink for Storari in the home goal.
    • 57' Salihamidzic replaces Quagliarella for Juventus.
    • 56' Moscardelli tries to break free in the box, but too many visiting shirts back and Juventus scramble the ball clear.
    • 55' Juve might look to alter matters here. This looks like a tough shift to see out a 1-0 win.
    • 54' Bonucci is the latest man into the book for a foul on Pellissier.
    • 53' Chievo should take all the encouragement in the world from being a man to the good. Can they make this count? Juve looking a bit dazed.
    • 52' Chance for a leveller, but Marcolini swings that free-kick over the bar from 25 yards. Aways flying high. Frustration for the Chievo man.
    • 51' RED CARD FOR GIANDONATO! The midfielder has brought down Constant as the home player tried to raced through on goal. The referee called that right.
    • 50' Quagliarella gets a header on goal, but nudged over the bar by Sorrention. Decent save by the Chievo keeper.
    • 49' Cesar takes Krasic out of the play, and he is booked for that effort. A sixth booking of the season for him.
    • 48' Storari comes off his line to claim a high ball wtih Moscardelli lurking in the area.
    • 47' An early offside decision goes against Pellissier before Constant chops down Aquilani.
    • 46' So a freezing cold day in Verona, but the second half is underway.
    • 45+3' Iaquinta ambles back from an offside position before Mandelli is booked. There goes the whistle, and Juve have the 1-0 lead. We'll be back with the second half for you.
    • 44' Three minutes to be added to the half.
    • 43' Quagliarella shows some nice skill, but Iaquinta could not provide the return pass. Looks like Juve are going to head for a cup of tea holding a 1-0 lead.
    • 42' Moscardelli is penalised for diving. Referee telling him to get on his feet.
    • 41' Pepe hoists the corner into the heart of the Chievo defence, but no takers. Chiellini runs the ball out of play on the other side.
    • 40' Juventus with 59% of possession as Cesar concedes a corner.
    • 39' Sardo and Chiellini collide, but Juventus have the verdict.
    • 38' Sorensen throws a high ball into the box, but no real direction in that and Grosso is penalised for fouling.
    • 37' Juventus have tried to play football, even if the pitch resembles a farmer's field.
    • 36' Krasic shows some delightful skill, but Constant is alive to the danger to pick his pocket. Needed to make that challenge.
    • 35' Looks for all the world like Juve are going to be moving into second place by the end of the afternoon unless Chievo discover form they have yet to show us.
    • 34' Quagliarella tries to chip the ball over Sorrentino from 35 yards out, but the whistle had gone for earlier foul play as the shot sails long.
    • 33' Mandelli rises highest in the box to head at goal, but he lacks any real power and that is an easy take for Storari.
    • 32' Chievo earned their first corner of the game which Marcolini is going to take.
    • 31' Guana given a final warning after a cynical late chop on Iaquinta.
    • 30' Sorrentino forced to save from Pepe and he is furious with his defenders. Chievo almost paid the price as Juve flooded their box from a free-kick.
    • 29' Chiellini goes up from the back as Juve seek a second goal that could put the game to bed before the break.
    • 28' GOAL FOR JUVE! Fabio Quagliarella turns in the box to thrash an overhead kick into the net from five yards out. Sloppy defending by Chievo, but that was a masterful finish. Juve have the lead.
    • 27' Bit of a delay in the play to allow Sorrentino a bit of treatment for what looks like a thigh injury.
    • 26' Fine bit of play by Juve and almost a first Juve goal for Sorensen. Juve have a corner.
    • 25' Frederik Sorensen plays a lovely one-two with Fabio Quagliarella, but is so unlucky to see a shot crack back off the post before bouncing to safety. Sorrentino got a hand to it to keep that ball out of the net.
    • 24' Fine play by Krasic down his right flank, but the cross has too much pace on it and the ball flies out of play on the other side.
    • 23' Alberto Aquilani takes a tumble with nobody near him. Throws in a free-kick looking for Iaquinta, but Chievo have enough bodies back to get that ball out.
    • 22' Referee seems to be in a happy enough mood even after watching Davide Moscardelli take a tumble under pressure from Sorensen.
    • 21' Remember Lazio are second in the table after their 3-2 win over Udinese earlier today. Check out the details of that one here..... Zapata own goal hands Lazio victory
    • 20' Lovely free-kick seconds later by Alberto Aquilani into the box, but Sorrentino is alive to fist that ball out of the danger area.
    • 19' Pepe tries to pick out Krasic at the back post, but Andrea Mantovani is aware to spot the danger and hook the ball away.
    • 18' Frederik Sorensen floats in a long, looping high ball, but Sorrentino can come to claim that ball.
    • 17' Juventus have lost only once in their previous 14 matches with Chievo. Here come Juve with Krasic.
    • 16' The Juve fans in party mood after that moment. They'll be hoping for better things from here on in.
    • 15' SAVE BY STORARI! Up stepped Marcolini. He drove his shot low and hard to the keeper's left, but the Juve man guessed the right way to fist the ball out. After a scramble in the box, we remain at 0-0.
    • 14' Giorgio Chiellini has been booked. Was a rash tackle at best. Should not have made it, but can the home side benefit from their good fortune.
    • 13' PENALTY TO CHIEVO! Davide Moscardelli is brought down by Chiellini, and the home side have a penalty.
    • 12' Up steps Davide Moscardelli from 25 yards, but he blazes that well over the bar. Good chance gone.
    • 11' Sergio Pellissier is hauled down by Frederik Sorensen to give Chievo a chance from a free-kick.
    • 10' Sardo racing forward down a flank, but Grosso comes across to snuff out the danger. Chievo enjoying a bit more space going forward.
    • 9' Pepe arriving at the back post, but Sardo heads out of the area. A solid bit of defending from the home defender to get that ball out.
    • 8' Not a full house in for this one, but at least the teams seem to have an appetite for the battle.
    • 7' Andrea Mantovani heads over the bar. Great effort from the Chievo player. That would have troubled Storari if it had been on target.
    • 6' Pepe tries his luck from 30 yards. Was always whizzing of the target. Goal-kick to the home side.
    • 5' Bit of pushing and shoving in the box. Chiellini seemed to push Sardo, and Chievo have a free-kick deep in their half.
    • 4' Pepe brought down by Sardo and Juve have a free-kick. Chance to exert some early pressure.
    • 3' Vincenzo Iaquinta looking lively in the opening moments. Krasic throws over a cross, but Chievo hold firm. Positive start from the visiting side.
    • 2' Juve have all the incentive in the world to get the three points. Home side in yellow, Juve in traditional black and white stripes.
    • 1' We are off and running in Verona. Pitch looks awful, but let us hope they put on a show for us.
    • 13.55 This is the final match before the winter break. How Juve would love a win here. Freezing conditions, but the heat of the title race is where Juve want to be by the time they tuck into their Christmas dinner over the weekend.
