    Time:90'
    • Juventus
    • Lecce
    • 90+3' FULL-TIME: A rout. Juventus looked excellent, Krasic was the star of the show. They keep in touch with the leading pack, while Lecce suffer another heavy defeat on the road.
    • 90+2' The set piece from Del Piero bounces around pinball-style in the box but the referee spots a handball and awards a Lecce free kick.
    • 90+2' Yellow for Grossmuller - that's four Lecce men booked for fouling him.
    • 90+1' Sissoko picks out Krasic and Grossmuller brings him down with another poor challenge.
    • 90' Three more minutes of stoppages to play before Lecce are put out of their misery.
    • 90' Bonucci clears the ball from under Corvia's feet.
    • 89' Pepe is offside as Juventus lump the ball forward once more, but it's quite inconsequential as the game nears its conclusion.
    • 88' Storari does not waste any energy rushing to take this goal kick - but eventually he lifts it upfield.
    • 87' Giacomazzi plays it forward to Munari - he opts to shoot but it bounces off his team-mate and goes out for a goal kick.
    • 86' Giacomazzi is taken off the ball by Marchisio, but Pepe cannot keep up the momentum.
    • 85' Juventus working patiently down the right wing with a series of throw-ins.
    • 84' Lecce's survival in this league is unlikely to be determined by how they do on the road to the giants, but this won't be good for their confidence.
    • 82' The fourth has finally come, and the fans are enjoying seeing Del Piero on the scoresheet - it's his first in Serie A this season.
    • 81' DEL PIERO SCORES! HAT-TRICK OF ASSISTS FOR KRASIC! The Serb makes it happen, bursting into the box and sliding a short pass across for the veteran, who pauses, shimmies left to make space and lashes home.
    • 80' DEL PIERO GOES CLOSE! Would have been a wonder strike if he'd volleyed over his shoulder into the corner, but skewed just wide!
    • 79' KRASIC HITS THE POST! His cross dangles temptingly in the air and grazes the post, and nobody in a black and white shirt can tip it in!
    • 78' Great hit from Rispoli and it takes an excellent tip over the bar from Rosati to deny him. He had to be alert after a quiet match, and he was.
    • 77' And the final Juventus change - Quagliarella off and Del Piero on in his place - that's all three goalscorers given a breather, then.
    • 76' Pepe replaces Aquilani, who comes off to applause from the Juventus faithful.
    • 75' Chiellini screams in pain as Ofere bundles him to the ground, and there's a pause here as he gets treatement.
    • 74' Marchisio nearly on the end of a flowing Juventus move, but Lecce get away with this one.
    • 73' Bonucci turns his man and skips out of defence. All too easy.
    • 72' Storari takes a catch from a hopeful cross and gets Juventus back on the move.
    • 71' Lecce parked on the edge of the Juventus box, but they get no further.
    • 70' KRASIC NEARLY THERE! He does it all himself, skipping through four Lecce men before taking his final touch just a shade too firm and knocking the ball into Rosati's arms.
    • 69' The edge has gone from this game - the lead is more mountainous with every minute and Juventus are quite happy to play within themselves.
    • 68' Amauri offside as Juventus break forward quickly.
    • 67' Bonucci loses a boot in a challenge with Ofere, and wins a free kick for his side.
    • 66' Juventus win a goal kick as a cross comes in from Lecce.
    • 64' Sub for Juve - goalscorer Melo comes off, Sissoko, formerly of Liverpool, replaces him.
    • 63' QUAGLIARELLA MISSES A GOOD CHANCE! Aquilani, Amauri, Aquilani again and then Quagliarella take the ball forward and the Italian striker skies his chance and he should have done much better.
    • 62' Grygera and Krasic swap passes before the ball goes back to the goalkeeper Storari and Juventus go slowly forward.
    • 61' Curved in by Aquilani but though Amauri gets there he cannot steer his diving header near the goal.
    • 60' Krasic is limping to the touchline here but he should be fine to continue. Meanwhile Aquilani plans a free kick.
    • 59' Yellow for Ferrario after a poor challenge on Krasic. By my count that's the third Lecce player to go into the book for that.
    • 58' De Ceglie takes a throw on the left to get Juve going again - looks like Grygera has won a corner on the right but the referee says it will be a goal kick.
    • 57' Aquilani tries another hit from range but this time he shanks his effort past the near post.
    • 56' No changes left for Lecce and Juventus still have all three changes available to them if they want to freshen things up.
    • 54' Final Lecce sub: Munari replaces Piatti.
    • 53' Good passing once again from Lecce as they build from deep. This time Corvia tees up Vives to hammer a shot from distance - not bad, but not on target.
    • 53' Another cracking pass from Melo to Krasic, and though the cross has plenty of shape it is headed out for a corner.
    • 52' Good probing ball from Melo for Amauri but the striker is stranded upfield and has not got the support he needs this time.
    • 51' Aquilani caught in possession here by Vives but Lecce don't punish him for it and the Bianconeri emerge with the ball.
    • 50' Home fans delighted to see Alessandro Del Piero warming up on the touchline.
    • 49' LECCE CLOSE! Ofere gets on the end of a cross for Lecce and forces a save from Storari! Promising effort!
    • 48' Krasic has five assists in Serie A this season from six-and-a-half games. He's the key man for Juve here.
    • 47' Grygera with a throw in his own half tries to get Juventus on the attack early in the second period.
    • 46' What possible hope for Lecce here? Do they believe that they can turn this around? They were also on the end of a 4-0 drubbing at Milan on the opening day.
    • 45' The second half begins!
    • - Vives replaces Jeda at half-time for the hosts, while Ofere comes on for Olivera in a double change.
    • 45+2' HALF-TIME: And Juventus are in total control here! They've shown great quality - Aquilani's strike was superb, and Krasic has been too hot to handle. Can Lecce keep their hosts in check in the second half? Join us in a few minutes!
    • 45+1' Aquilani's set piece is dealt with by Mesbah with relative ease and Lecce clear - but Chiellini lumps it forward to keep the pressure on the visitors.
    • 45' Yellow for Fabiano as he becomes the latest man to be beaten by Krasic.
    • 44' Juventus have made their chances count. The scoreline is a little flattering but if it continues like this it could be a rout.
    • 43' QUAGLIARELLA MAKES IT THREE! It's Krasic who makes it, though - his run and chip down the right hand side is facilitated by a great swap of passes with Amauri and Quagliarella gets low to nod in at the far post!
    • 43' Olivera brings down Quagliarella as Juventus keep pushing.
    • 42' Grossmuller loses the ball and Marchisio is on the march for Juventus.
    • 41' As it stands, Juventus could find themselves 5th in the table tonight, which would look a little more healthy for the Turin outfit.
    • 40' Great challenge from Grygera to rob Piatti and get Juventus on the move. Amauri is then brought down in the box but the referee waves that one away.
    • 39' Olivera had a bit of space there, and couldn't decide between a chipped ball for Corvia, a placed shot or a driven effort - he ends up doing none of the above.
    • 38' Lecce break with Olivera, but they're being stifled with ease at the moment.
    • 37' Great cross from Krasic which only just evades Amauri.
    • 36' Set piece chance for Lecce - a decent cross in and Ferrario heads high and wide at the far post for the visitors.
    • 35' That's Melo's first of the season in Serie A, although he has struck in the Europa League this year.
    • 34' MELO SCORES! He dances away in delight and he took that one with impudence, chipping it low and central as Rosati committed himself. 2-0 to the home side, and a long way back for Lecce.
    • 33' Lecce surround the referee in fury, but no doubt that Rispoli brought him down. Melo will take the kick.
    • 32' PENALTY! After a slick move from Juve Krasic, popping up on the left, is felled by Rispoli!
    • 31' Good cross from De Ceglie in Amauri's direction, but Fabiano stands up well to that one.
    • 30' Krasic dances his way around Piatti and Mesbah and then wins a free kick when Mesbah trips him. The Algerian has to be careful.
    • 29' Lecce have a throw deep in their own half as they look to build.
    • 28' Jeda has show some nice touches for Lecce and tries a backheel next but his side will need some end product from him here.
    • 27' Krasic is making a real nuisance of himself on the right hand side. He's dealt with this time but it takes Giacomazzi tracking back to double up on him and make sure the danger is snuffed out.
    • 26' Not a good delivery and Juventus clear.
    • 26' Lecce dangerous on the counter attack once more - Oivera picks out Mesbah on the overlap, and his cross is deflected for a corner.
    • 25' Chiellini rises slowly to his feet - it was a nasty knock and he trudges off to the touchline.
    • 24' Yellow for Olivera - he left his studs up in a challenge with Chiellini.
    • 23' CORVIA A WHISKER FROM LEVELLING! Great chance - fiery counter attack - Mesbah plays an excellent ball in from the left and Storari has to make a sharp save to keep out Corvia's poked shot.
    • 22' The corner is cleared at the near post but again Juventus press and and Aquilani's cross threatens.
    • 21' KRASIC CLOSE! He is played in by Grygera at pace and surges through the right but Rosati smothers the angle and concedes a corner.
    • 20' Elsewhere in Serie A Palermo lead through Pastore at Bologna, Marchionni has given Fiorentina an advantage at Sampdoria, and Bogdani's goal the difference between Cesena and Parma.
    • 19' QUAGLIARELLA CLOSE! He shimmies and cuts inside trying to beat Ferrario but the Lecce man does well to get a touch and deflect the ball away for a corner.
    • 18' Lecce have actually looked very good on the ball, but Juventus have pegged them back when they near the final third.
    • 17' That's Mesbah's second yellow of the season, but it was a terrible challenge - the Algerian made no attempt to get to the ball.
    • 16' Krasic is felled cynically as he cuts around Mesbah, and that is the first yellow card of the game.
    • 15' Tough challenge from Marchisio as Lecce explore on the edge of the Juventus box. Jeda tries a cross but it is well dealt with.
    • 14' Fabiano runs out of space on the touchline, but Lecce are back on the ball.
    • 12' AQUILAAAANI! WHAT A STRIKE! Marchisio feeds the ball to him 25 yards out and he hits it with venom low into the right hand corner of the goal. Liverpool are 1-0 down in the Merseyside derby but one of their players is having a good day!
    • 12' Now Juventus try to build - their passing has looked very sharp as they run down the right.
    • 11' More Lecce control which ends for now when Olivera's chipped through ball is overhit.
    • 10' Good spell of possession for Lecce, perhaps their first moment of control in this game. Jeda at the centre of things - culminating in a good cross which is scrambled clear from Olivera's feet.
    • 9' Crunching tackle for Melo on Ferrario wins Lecce a free kick.
    • 8' Chiellini, Marchisio and Bonucci swap passes with Melo until they go long - suddenly De Ceglie has a great chance to play a cross for Amauri but the Brazilian/Italian fouls jumping for the ball.
    • 7' Quagliarella tries to cross from the right but the Italian striker's effort is blocked for a throw.
    • 6' Melo picks out Marchisio with a superb ranging ball forward - tempting cross follows, glanced out of danger by the defence and Lecce break fast.
    • 5' Krasic is Juve's big summer signing, and when he's played well so far this season Juventus have been excellent. Good early signs then for the hosts.
    • 4' Krasic repeats the trick after a great pass from Marchisio - Rosati is up to the task of gathering the low delivery this time.
    • 3' Juventus take a free kick quickly and that frees up Krasic to get right down to the byline and play a dangerous cross in from the right - only just cleared!
    • 2' De Ceglie carries the ball down the left hand side before a disappointing cross which goes out for a goal kick.
    • 1' Lecce, playing in their red and yellow strip, test the waters up front with a long-range shot from Piatti which is saved by Storari.
    • 1' Away we go! Juventus kick us off.
    • - Both sides have won two, drawn two and lost two this season. That's largely good news for Lecce, but Juventus fans are expecting better. With wins for Inter and Milan already this weekend, anything other than victory today would be a huge disappointment for the hosts.
    • - Players are out on the field and the captains are shaking hands getting ready for action.
    • - Earlier today Inter grabbed an important win in Cagliari thanks to Samuel Eto'o
    • - Looks like Lecce will be lining up in a 4-1-4-1, while Juve will opt for two up front with Amauri and Quagliarella linking up.
    • - TEAMS: Juventus: Storari, Chiellini, Bonucci, De Ceglie, Grygera, Aquilani, Melo, Marchisio, Krasic, Quagliarella, Amauri /// Lecce: Rosati, Fabiano, Ferrario, Mesbah, Vives, Grossmuller, Giacomazzi, Ruben Olivera, Piatti, Di Michele
