    • Juventus
    • Cagliari
    • 90+6 The referee blows up for full time and Juve finally have a home win in Serie A. Seven points and they go 10th.
    • 90+4 Play is back underway and Juve are just holding out to prevent conceding now. They look a little rattled by that injury to Amauri. Hope he's all right - he played quite well!
    • 90+2 Five minutes of added time were signalled, although it may be more after Amauri was carried off. Juve have used all their subs so have to ride this out with 10 men.
    • 90+1 This is not good for Amauri. He's in tears and won't be carrying on. Looks like his Achilles.
    • 90' Amauri is down injured... His ankle.
    • 89' Sissoko tries a surging run in the middle but gives it away. Juve win it back though.
    • 88' Chiellini watches the ball out for a throw on the Juve left.
    • 87' Juve have a free-kick on the right but Ale's ball in is poor and Cagliari clear.
    • 80' JUVE SUB: Amid all the goal action five minutes back I forgot to say that Del Piero came on for Iaquinta.
    • 85' Juve make simple work of clearing that free-kick.
    • 84' Sissoko feels he chested the ball but handball says the ref.
    • 83' Chiellini gets a crack on the chin but is okay to continue.
    • 82' Sissoko blasts one over from range, row Z for the Malian.
    • 81' Well that came from nothing. Surely Juve can't conspire to blow this again? Sissoko wins a free-kick midway inside the opposition half.
    • 80' Lovely goal by Matri! A brilliant ball with the outside of Lazzari's boot, wonderful pas to split the defence and Matri's diagonal run allowed him a simple finish. 4-2!
    • 79' Matri overhits a ball aimed at Nene, left by Storari for a goal kick.
    • 78' A Juve attack is snuffed out by Laner getting back well to clear with Sissoko ready to pull the trigger.
    • 77' JUVE SUB: Sissoko on for Aquilani; two former Liverpool players.
    • 76' BAD MISS BY NENE! Poor Juve defending allowed him to get a bite on Laner's cross from eight yards but he somehow blasted it over.
    • 75' JUVE SUB: Rinaudo comes off for Legrottaglie. Chiellini will move to full back I assume.
    • 74' Rinaudo seems hurt. Juve yet to make any changes Cagliari have made three: Nene and Pisano came on for Perico and Cossu earlier.
    • 73' Krasic almost gets in down the left but this time he is tackled.
    • 72' CAGLIARI SUB: Laner is on for the visitors. Acquafresca off.
    • 70' Krasic is booked for stripping in joy.
    • 69' Astori heads it clear and it drops to Krasic, they back off him and he pokes it towards goal and it takes a deflection off Canini and it's in! 4-1! It was goal-bound and he will claim the hat-trick. Poor defending though, they backed off him far too easily.
    • 68' Juve have a corner on the left.... Pepe over to take...
    • 66' Aquilani tries to get on the end of Amauri's pull-back, good strength from him, but Astori slides in to intercept.
    • 64' Iaquinta goes down in a challenge with Astori but the referee decides the Juve striker used his arm first. Fortunate, as he was the last man.
    • 63' Super chance Matri but he curls it wide! He somehow found himself unmarked with acres of space on the left side of the area and his placed finish flew beyond Storari but also the goal!
    • 62' Juve in control now, knocking it about nicely as Cagliari chase shadows.
    • 60' Throw to Juve on the right, hurled in by Rinaudo, deep cross from him as he gets it back AND AMAURI WITH AN OLYMPIC LEAP but the header to the bottom right bounces just wide!
    • 58' Canini is looking a bit sheepish. It's him. It must be.
    • 57' I still have no idea who scored that. Iaquinta is trying to claim it but the ball was already over the line when he made contact sliding in at the far post. Bonucci is beating his chest and they initially hand it to him, but he got no touch at all the cheeky so and so. I reckon that was an own goal by Canini. Or someone.
    • 56' GOAL JUVE! Pepe puts the corner near post and a flick across goal off someone's head, no idea who though and it could have been a defender, bodies everywhere, the keeper makes an amazing save, there's an almighty scramble and it's bundled in at the far post.
    • 55' Flicked on by Iaquinta to put Amauri in and Astori takes him down but no penalty! He got the ball says the ref. He did - just.
    • 54' Cagliari break again as Juve step off Cossu, before Lazzari blasts well over.
    • 53' Juve are starting to give the ball away. The nerves of holding on to a lead maybe too much for these flowers.
    • 52' A promising Juve attack fizzles out when Iaquinta puts a weak low shot well wide.
    • 51' Lazzari knocks it forward to Matri on the right but Chiellini shows a turn of pace before pulling up as the ball spins out of play.
    • 50' The furious pace this match has been played at so far takes an understandable dip.
    • 48' Krasic comes forward on the right, cutting it back for MELO but his shot flies just wide!
    • 47' Swung in by Lazzari and Matri flicks it on FOR ASTORI FAR POST BUT AN AMAZING SAVE FROM STORARI! What a stop! He was totally out of the game but flew across from near post to far and tipped the goal-bound bullet header over!
    • 46' Early free-kick for Cagliari on the right...
    • 46' Second half underway...
    • - STATS: The Bianconeri have also made more passes in the first half, 210 to 191.
    • - STATS: Juve have had 52% of possession and nine efforts on goal to Cagliari's six.
    • 45+1 Half-time and Juve take a deserved lead into the dressing room.
    • 45' Cossu fails to keep it in on the left after a high ball almost played him in.
    • 44' Juve look content to play this out until half time, a confidence boosting lead. They're playing some good football too, going forward at any rate.
    • 42' Free-kick to Cagliari some way out, flung into the box but it spins away for a goal kick.
    • 40' GREAT SAVE AGAZZI! A ball over the top caught the visiting defence out and Iaquinta bustled in only for the keeper to save it with his face. Ow.
    • 39' Krasic gives the ball away and Aquilani in frustration gives away a free-kick.
    • 38' Juve drive forward with Aquilani. Krasic has moved to the left now.
    • 36' Juve clear the free-kick. Can they hold on to this lead at home?
    • 35' Aquilani is booked for a raised boot around 40 yards out. Needless way to get your first yellow for your club.
    • 34' KRASIC SCORES AGAIN! Agostini is caught napping at the far post and the Serb ghosts in to meet Pepe's deep cross with a right-foot finish in off the keeper. Great hassling by Amauri to win it back in the first place, he set up Pepe's delivery.
    • 33' Krasic puts it far post but Pepe and Amauri get in each other's way, out for a throw.
    • 32' Juve respond to that earning a throw on the left, Pepe working hard to win it.
    • 31' Agostini getting forward gets around Rinaudo, now he cuts it in to Matri who turns around Bonucci far too easily, super skill though, and he drills it across goal but Acquafresca can't get there and it spins away!
    • 30' Krasic tries to get past Agostini, who slides in hard and a goal kick is awarded; Krasic cannot believe it.
    • 29' Juve stretched as Cagliari counter and win a corner. Melo has to put behind twice with headers after dangerous balls in from the right.
    • 28' Aquilani tries a volley from range but the keeper is well placed to parry and claim the second ball.
    • 27' Juve with a bit more possession as they lay camp on the edge of the visiting box.
    • 26' Cagliari have looked a lot more confident since the equaliser but Perico fails to read Cossu's pass wide. Throw.
    • 25' Lazzari almost frees Matri with a diagonal ball but Bonucci intercepts.
    • 24' Nainggolan, the young Belgium midfielder of Indonesian parentage, strikes a low shot from the edge of the D but Storari sees it all the way.
    • 23' Pepe slides it into the box where Amauri does really well to turn away from his marker and get a shot in but straight at Agazzi diving low, who claims second time.
    • 22' So after dominating Juve are pegged back. They simply cannot defend balls from wide positions. Agazzi gathers after Iaquinta chases a long one.
    • 21' CAGLIARI LEVEL! With their first effort Matri finishes coolly with an outstretched right boot after a lovely cross and footwork from Lazzari. Dreadful marking from Bonucci and Chiellini again, who this season have looked entirely unacquinated with one another.
    • 20' Very casual backheel from Melo but he gets the job done. Amauri applauds the quick ball from Aquilani even though it doesn't come off.
    • 19' Krasic picks the ball up after a stray Cossu pass, now Aquilani but Iaquinta stumbles into the pass and the visitors clear.
    • 18' Cagliari with an abortive attack, snuffed out by Rinaudi. Impressive from Juve so far.
    • 16' Nice passage of play again from Juve but Aquilani overhits the through ball aimed at Iaquinta. Juve passing better with the big men, who like it to feet too and hold it up well to bring the others into play.
    • 15' Correction - the ref called a foul on Matri. Storari puts it long.
    • 14' Matri attacks the ball at the near post and it comes off Bonucci and out for a corner. Quick response from the visitors.
    • 13' GOAL JUVENTUS! KRASIC! He rifles a low volley through a crowded box into the bottom left after the free-kick isn't properly cleared. His first goal for Juve and he celebrates with the fans behind the goal.
    • 12' Iaquinta is caught on the edge of the box by Astori, just outside and a free-kick. Strong, bustling play from the Italy striker.
    • 11' Amauri heads the corner clear and Nainggolan has a pop from range but well over.
    • 10' Chiellini lives. Just a sore ankle. Cagliari now have a corner on their right, decent spell for them.
    • 9' Cagliari have struggled to get out of their half but when they do Lazzari catches Chiellini, who stays down...
    • 8' Teasing hanging ball from Krasic and Iaquinta flies in, Agazzi flapping awfully but he gets away with it as the referee calls favour with the goalkeeping union and blows up.
    • 7' Pepe with another teasing cross but just a bit too high for Iaquinta, the ball coming off the top of his head and spinning well wide.
    • 6' Pepe gets the ball back on the left and he lofts a super cross in that Amauri attacks a full yard above everyone else AND IAQUINTA POINT BLANK BUT HE HEADS OVER! It came to him really quickly but he should have scored!
    • 5' Good sweeping move from Juve sees them earn a corner on the left. Pepe pops it near post but cleared...
    • 4' Really nice spell of one-touch football, over a minute of short cute passing until Pepe blasts over from the edge of the box. That's more like it. Amauri and Iaquinta involved with strong hold-up play.
    • 2' Amauri picks it up on his chest after a flick on by Iaquinta. One place Juve will not be bullied tonight is the air. Well, not up front anyway.
    • 1' The first half is underway in Turin!
    • 19:40 Mass changes for Juve then, since the 3-1 defeat at home to Palermo. Motta doesn't even make the bench, while Del Piero and Quagliarella are dropped for Amauri and Iaquinta - Juve's own bruise brothers. Aquilani is in for Marchisio too, who is benched.
