    Time:90'
    • Juventus
    • Chievo
    • 90+3' There goes the final whistle! Juve can surely kiss goodbye to the Champions League next term. All over here. A 2-2 draw. Chievo celebrating, but Juve are struggling to qualify got the Europa League. What a turnaround.
    • 89' Two minutes to be added to this one. A bizarre second period.
    • 88' A draw for Chievo and they are officially secure in Serie A. The home fans less than happy with what they are watching.
    • 87' Pepe wins a corner. Toni is up there, but he is guilty of pushing in the box and that is a free-kick to the visiting side.
    • 86' Del Piero goes for goal, but over the bar from outside of the box. Decent effort, but no goal.
    • 85' Ceser barges Toni in the back. Free-kick for the home side. Del Piero to take 28 yards out.
    • 84' Chievo with plenty of bodies back as Matri and Del Piero try to open their box of tricks. Time is running out.
    • 83' The Juve manager Del Neri looking a bit frazzled on that bench. He probably can't work this one out.
    • 82' Toni hits the post again for Juve! Great cross by Matri, but the big striker can't finish. We remain at 2-2.
    • 81' Aquilani hammers a shot wide of goal from distance! How this game is 2-2 is a minor miracle.
    • 80' Pellissier takes the ball beyond Buffon, but Uribe can't finish as his shot lacks pace and Marchisio takes the ball off the line. What a miss!
    • 79' Del Piero's corner is flicked on, but Chiellini has hit the post from close range. How did that stay out? Unbelievable. Header looked netbound.
    • 78' Juve making their own change as Luca Toni is introduced to replace Krasic. Some long faces in that home support. Little wonder.
    • 77' Davide Mandelli defender replaces Jokic for the visiting side who are trying to secure an unlikely away point.
    • 76' Play raging from end to end. Juve getting caught at the back as Fernandes races in on goal, but Buffon is out quickly to claim the loose ball.
    • 75' Sorrentino spills a header from Chiellini in the box, but no damage done as Chievo whack the ball clear.
    • 74' Chievo with 16 attempts at goal compared to 10 by Juventus. No doubt that the home side have taken their foot off the gas a bit out there.
    • 73' Aquilani rises to head at goal, but can't find any pace on the ball as Sorrentino comes to collect. All looking a bit forlorn for the home team.
    • 72' Chievo in need of a point to officially ensure they are not relegated. Looking good for it at the moment.
    • 71' Aquilanice lets fly from 30 yards out. Always spinning wide of the target. Juve looking a bit stunned.
    • 70' Krasic is booked for a spot of diving on the outside of the box. Chievo not happy with that conduct.
    • 69' Pellissier cracks a shot at goal from outside of the area. This time too near Buffon, who dives to hold the ball. Phew...what a change in a match..
    • 68' Another glorious chance for Chievo as Pellissier danced in on Buffon. Hit the shot, but he walloped it wide of goal. Should have been number three.
    • 67' A SECOND GOAL FOR CHIEVO! We are level at 2-2. Would you believe it! Pellissier hit the post with the first attempt, but Sardo kept his cool to slip the ball home. Stunning couple of minutes.
    • 66' Sardo hits the post with the volley, but Rigoni was alert to finish. Game on now and here come Chievo again..
    • 65' GOAL FOR CHIEVO! Rigoni stabs the ball home from close range and the visiting side have fresh hope all of a sudden.
    • 64' Grosso has the ball in the net for Juve. Well offside though after slipping the shot beyond Sorrentino.
    • 63' Pellissier fails to control the ball in the box. Decent attempt to get the ball under control, but Buffon collects.
    • 62' A change coming here for the visiting side as Uribe is brought on for Constant, who looks a bit tired as he heads off the pitch.
    • 61' Del Piero swings a free-kick into the area. Only half cleared by Chievo as the ball comes straight back to a white shirt. The visiting side toiling to get any time on the ball.
    • 60' Ball back with Buffon. Pellissier seems to living off scraps at the moment. Not that Juve will be complaining.
    • 59' Mantovani brings down Del Piero and Juve have a free-kick. The home side looking a whole lot more comfortable in their play after that second goal.
    • 58' Lovely ball into the area by Matri, who almost turned provider seconds after he was scoring.
    • 57' Krasic swings a dangerous cross over before nodding wide seconds later. That was a golden chance to make it three. Should have netted there.
    • 56' First goal in three games for Matri. Vintage Del Piero. Vintage Juve. In the box seat for three points now.
    • 55' GOAL FOR JUVE! Lovely pass from Del Piero to send Matri speeding away. He produces a superb finish and Juventus have a 2-0 lead. Well in control now.
    • 54' Constant with another shot at goal from 30 yards or so. Pellissier is offiside as the shot breaks to him.
    • 53' Rigoni sees a deflected shot whizz wide of the goal. Chievo back on the attack.
    • 52' Aquilani is booked for a late chop on Fernandes - rightly booked for that challenge.
    • 51' Matri claiming he was being impeded in the Chievo box. A few home players appealing for it, but the referee doesn't want to know.
    • 50' Krasic rises to meet a header in the Chievo box. Couldn't get a free header on that one before Marchisio hammers the shot over the bar.
    • 49' Chievo have failed to score in three of their previous four matches away from home. Not exactly an ideal stat.
    • 48' Constant rattles in a shot from distance. Got hold of that effort with some venom, but it hits a team-mate before Juve clear the danger.
    • 47' Offside flag goes up against Pellissier early in this second period before Matri is caught out at the other end.
    • 46' We are off and running in the second half. Work to be done by both side in this period.
    • 45' There goes the whistle. Juve have the lead at half-time. Pretty much in control after Del Piero's early penalty goal.
    • 44' Three minutes to be added..
    • 43' Chievo not really threatening to fnd a goal here. Have plenty of the ball, but yet to impress themselves upon the home defence.
    • 42' Pellissier tries a speculative effort from outside of the box, but charged down before he is muscled off the ball by Chiellini.
    • 41' Chievo in 14th place in the table at the moment. Bogliacino catches Chiellini with a late one. Free-kick to Juve.
    • 40' Constant rampaging up and down the park as he rolls the ball back to Sorrentino.
    • 39' Kracic swings over a fine cross. Looking for Pepe in the middle, but Andreolli is on hand to nod that over his own bar. Brilliant piece of defending.
    • 38' Bogliacino drills a shot at goal, but he is offside after Constant's effort from distance was charged down.
    • 37' Mariano Bogliacino is brought on to replace the injured Thereau for the visiting team.
    • 36' Pellissier goes for goal. Plenty of pace on the shot, but the wall holds firm. Another free-kick fails to test Buffon.
    • 35' That could be a dislocated finger or wrist injury. Thereau is in some pain as he departs the action. Blow to Chievo's plans.
    • 34' Juve break up the park as Marchisio tugs at the shirt of Thereau. He is booked for that effort. The visiting player needing some treatment.
    • 33' Constant brings down Krasic and the home side have another free-kick around the halfway line.
    • 32' Del Piero's delivery penetrates the box before Chiellini is deemed to be offside seconds later.
    • 31' Cesar brings down Grosso. Free-kick to Juve out wide. Chance to apply some pressure.
    • 30' Sardo sticking to Pepe like super glue as he puts the ball out of play. Making sure the cross can't come in. Solid defending.
    • 29' Pepe fouls Sorrentino in the Chievo goal and the visiting side are awarded a free-kick. Juve fans in good voice this evening.
    • 28' Pellissier manages to lift the ball over the wall, but wide of the target. Juve can't really afford to give free-kicks away from that range.
    • 27' Grosso fouls Sardo and Chievo are awarded another free-kick. Same distance. 25 yards from goal with Constant standing over it.
    • 26' Rigoni picks up a booking for a late challenge on Krasic. Late challenge. Worthy of a booking.
    • 25' Constant with the corner, but far too much pace on the delivery. Ball is over the box and out of play on the other side.
    • 24' Jokic goes for goal from the edge of the box. Watched by Buffon as he tips it over the bar. Corner to the visiting side.
    • 23' Chievo yet to manage a shot at goal, but here they come now.
    • 22' Aquilani blows the chance to add the second as he lifts the ball over the bar from Grosso's cross. Fine move. All it needed was a goal.
    • 21' Juve on the ball. Pepe tries to get the better of Sardo, but there is enough blue shirts back there to deal with the problems.
    • 20' Sardo needing a bit of treatment after he collided with Chiellini out wide. The Juve defender is protesting his innocence.
    • 19' Constant has a go at goal, but that is a poor finish. Straight at the wall and Juve live to fight another day.
    • 18' Constant is sent tumbling to the ground by Aquilani and Chievo have a free-kick 25 yards out. Chance here to test out Buffon for the first time this evening.
    • 17' Del Piero throws over the corner, but too near Sorrentino, who rises to clasp the ball.
    • 16' Sardo knocks the ball behind for another corner after Krasic embarked upon a fine and cross down a flank. Juve press for a second.
    • 15' So close to a second for Juve. Aquilani's deflected shot from distance is tipped over the bar by Sorrentino. Fine stop.
    • 14' Well, there we go. Not what Chievo were looking for. Andreolli has been booked. I assume for dissent.
    • 13' GOAL FOR JUVE! Del Piero steps up to hammer the ball down the middle. A 185th goal in Serie A for the legend. Great start by Juve in this match.
    • 12' PENALTY TO JUVE! Sardo deemed to be guilty of foul play in the box. Not sure there was much in that. He pushed Pepe in the area.
    • 11' Pepe and Del Piero try to win space in the visiting penalty box. Chievo knock the ball out.
    • 10' Chiellini gives the ball away under little or no pressure. Fortunate that the visiting forwards are not quicker on to the loose ball. Juve back on the ball.
    • 9' Pepe gets the ball away with Constant lurking in the heart of the home box. Chievi trying to get forward as much as possible.
    • 8' Pellissier fails to race on to a long ball. Ball out of play and Juventus have a goalkick.
    • 7' Disappointing cross from Del Piero as Chievo break up the attack. The visiting side have only won four times away from home in Serie A this term.
    • 6' Grosso's cross is nodded away by the visiting defence. Decent header out. Chievo pick it up in midfield before Krasic wins it for Juve.
    • 5' Juve keeping the ball well. Del Piero on the ball, but Sardo knocks his header out of play. Juve continue on the offensive.
    • 4' Sardo and Pepe collide going for a 50-50 ball before the referee halts play. Both players needing a bit of treatment.
    • 3' Juve keen to keep the ball early on as Matri rises for a high ball, but Chievo pick up the loose ball and go on the attack.
    • 2' Chievo have managed one win in 17 matches against Juve. Not exactly the best record in the world.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one.
    • 19.40 Teams on their way out for this one. Pitch in a decent condition.
    • 19.35 Juventus need a win tonight close the gap on fourth-placed Udinese to three points with two games left. Coach Luigi Del Nelri is refusing give up hope on a Champions League spot. "In football it's not over until the numbers say so. We are fighting for the fourth spot and we will continue to do so until the end, trying to win our next three games.''
