    Time:90'
    • Juventus
    • Palermo
    • 90+4 The final whistle goes, Juve humiliated at home.
    • 90+4 Chiellini rises to meet a free kick but well wide.
    • 90+3 PALERMO SUB: Pastore is off for Darmian.
    • 90+1 Four minutes added time being played.
    • 90' Amauri heads another Krasic cross wide! They have had chances Juve, but they've not looked like taking them.
    • 89' Ilicic is booked for a pointless kick on Chiellini, rush of blood and really he should have gone.
    • 88' Amauri and Aquilani combine but Bovo puts it out for a throw. Now Aquilani crosses but cleared for now. Motta gets it but his cross is weak.
    • 87' Iaquinta pulls one back for Juve, a super bullet header into the bottom left after some shocking marking from Bovo, who can be forgiven taking the eye off the ball after his goal.
    • 86' Taking another look at that Storari should have saved it. The wall was fine, he went the right way after covering the only gap possible but somehow he let it past him. Odd.
    • 85' 3-0! Defender Bovo smashes in a wicked long-range free-kick, finding the gap from 20 yards as Storari flies into the post.
    • 84' Juve have given away a free-kick on the edge of the D, could be trouble...
    • 82' Balzaretti tangles with Krasic and the home fans hear a whistle thinking it was a penalty but the decision goes the other way. Rightly so - Krasic pulled his shirt.
    • 81' Hernandez is caught offside.
    • 80' Free-kick on the Juve right, Amauri is the target but it's over his head. Melo has it but the cross is poor and Palermo clear.
    • 79' Juventus have a corner on the right, swung in by Krasic and AMAURI WITH THE HEADER but a super save by Sirigu! Melo flies in with the rebound but Rigoni blocks for another corner!
    • 78' PALERMO SUB: Rigoni on for Bacinovic.
    • 77' Pastore races through again but he's offisde.
    • 76' Another Juve chance breaks down, this time as Amauri can't reach Aquilani's through ball.
    • 75' Sirigu grabs hold of a high one from Juve's Motta.
    • 74' Juve break and Marchisio finds Krasic but Nocerino is back and now Palermo attack. Ilicic takes on Bonucci but the former Bari defender has it back with Storari.
    • 73' AMAURI HEADS INCHES WIDE! Great ball from Krasic after the free-kick was cleared and Amauri flew in to nod it inches past the post!
    • 72' Krasic wins a free-kick on the right. Juve piling it on.
    • 71' Melo slips the ball wide to Krasic, who Bovo plays onside but his low shot flies inches wide of the far post!
    • 69' Juve seem to lack self belief but they are coming forward in an attempt to get something from this game.
    • 67' No surprises as Pinilla lives, the magic spray getting him on his feet. Amazing how that works for concussion.
    • 66' Pinilla is down holding his head....
    • 65' Iaquinta has the ball in the back of the net but the flag is up, offside but a super ball from Aquilani.
    • 64' Juve are pressing gamely but said game is up. The crowd is largely silent now.
    • 62' The home fans are booing, hissing and quite possibly burning things. Juve simply cannot defend.
    • 61' 2-0! Ilicic! Storari saves the initial shot from Pastore but his defence stand like statues as Ilicic bounces the ball in off the post from quite a way out.
    • 60' JUVE SUB: Interesting, as Del Piero looked the most likely. Aquilani is on in his place.
    • 59' Free-kick to Juve at some range but Del Piero sends it well over.
    • 58' Juve only half clear and Balzaretti still forward drills it low on goal but tipped behind by Storari!
    • 57' Balzaretti plays a super long pass to release Pastore but Bonucci is back to block for a corner.
    • 56' Great ball from Krasic after he beats Balzaretti and flies at the byline AND AMAURI IS THERE but Sirigu somehow gets a palm across to get their first and nudge it away from Iaquinta lying in wait!
    • 55' Crisp turn from Del Piero but shooting probably wasn't the best thing from that range and he sends a weak drive at Sirigu.
    • 54' Del Piero to take then... he puts it on the penalty spot but Pinilla gets it away.
    • 54' Del Piero bursts forward and finds Krasic on the right but Balzaretti slides in to put it out for a corner.
    • 53' Grygera with a handball in midfield.
    • 52' Motta gets down the right and finds Krasic, who goes for goal but easy for Sirigu. Melo and Quagliarella are furious.
    • 51' Bacinovic is booked for a late challenge.
    • 50' Poor corner from Del Piero. Palermo need a couple of bites at it to clear though.
    • 49' Nocerino goes down, free-kick taken but Juve break. Amauri goes too early but Melo holds the pass and instead finds Iaquinta, who gives chase and wins a corner.
    • 48' A delay as Bacinovic gets some treatment after a tackle with Motta.
    • 47' Del Piero kicks Bacinovic on halfway. No card. Chiellini plays the ball in for Amauri who is clean through but the flag is up! That was tight, very tight.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • - Juve bring on Amauri and Iaquinta at half time. Bold attacking change. Pepe is off, Quagliarella too.
    • 45+1 Cracking half realy, Palermo lead, both sides have hit the woodwork and Juve denied a clear penalty!
    • 45' Del Piero again on the right this time, good ball in and Melo attacks but over his head and Quagliarella meets it but he fouled Bovo.
    • 44' Del Piero is convinced Cassani tripped him in the box at that corner but the ref isn't having any of it. Looked a foul to me! Juve win it back though as Krasic comes down the right but he puts in a useless cross that goes out for a throw.
    • 43' Del Piero 30 yards out, super one-two with Quagliarella AND DEL PIERO SMACKS IT OFF THE BAR! Great shot, Sirigu got a touch, which makes it an even better save. Corner.
    • 43' Marchisio tangles with Balzaretti, who immediately puts the ball out as he realises he's hurt the Juve midfielder.
    • 42' Juve come forward but all they get is another throw on the right. The Bianconeri are bossing possession now but Palermo are very dangerous on the break.
    • 41' Melo gives the ball away to Ilicic, that was weak. Palermo play keep ball for a bit as Pinilla wasn't forward. Neat passing and Palermo spring the offside trap, Juve all over the shop as Pinilla finds Pastore who's one-on-one and he opens his body up but puts it against the post!
    • 40' Balzaretti with another vital interception, this time a defensive header out for a throw. Juve keep the ball well though...
    • 39' Melo is somehow offside as another Juve attack breaks down in the passage of play following the clearance of that corner.
    • 38' Del Piero wins a free-kick after a clumsy tackle from Munoz, pulled out of position to the right. Del Piero wide left then and he swings it in, it's a shot and almost dips under the bar but Sirigu scrambles back to tip it over!
    • 37' Motta crosses too high but Quag gets a flick to keep it alive for Juve. Back to Bonucci now but his through ball is cleared. The break is on and Pinilla is in, he's all alone as Juve race back and he drills a low shot across Storari but just wide of the far post! Ilicic with the super through ball.
    • 36' Krasic takes on Balzarerri but the Palermo left-back again gets the better of the Serb, with the ball rebounding off the ex-CSKA man for a goal kick.
    • 35' Pastore on the edge of the D has a pop but it strikes Chiellini's knee and bobbles into Storari's midriff.
    • 34' Good ball in from Pepe this time but just about cleared. Pepe gets it back, finding Del Piero who is taken down by Ilicic but nothing given! Juve are furious and rightly so - it was very late, outside the area. Poor from the ref.
    • 33' Del Piero takes it but into the wall. He has another dig but it takes a deflection and spins over for a corner.
    • 33' Del Piero is taken down by Bacinovic and the hosts have a free-kick some 33 yards out...
    • 32' Pinillo goes to ground as Palermo counter but no foul. Both sides are furious.
    • 31' Krasic and Motta have a set-to after they crossed wavelengths on the right.
    • 30' A long ball from Bonucci almost frees Quagliarella, but his attempted reverse header is at the wrong angle to catch out Sirigu, who was off his line.
    • 29' Great one-touch passing by Juve works it wide to Pepe but, with plenty to aim at, his low cross is poor, behind his pals, and Nocerino clears.
    • 28' Del Piero's free-kick is headed away by Migliaccio but the ball is spun back to the veteran. He shows lovely footwork to beat Pinilla but Nocerino stands firm and Palermo clear.
    • 27' Krasic knocks the ball around Balzaretti, who obstructs him. Free-kick Juve deep on the right wing...
    • 26' Melo is a bit late on former Juve man Nocerino, but he gets away with it. Pinillo is then caught offside.
    • 25' Quagliarella with a poorly scuffed shot well wide after promising build-up play. Momo Sissoko is warming up already.
    • 24' Juve break and Krasic gets in behind the midfield but his shot is deflected into Sirigu's arms.
    • 23' Lovely play by Pastore, a backheel nutmeg on Motta, but after an attempted one-two with Pinillo he takes a dive to ruin it all.
    • 22' Juve return to their possession game, but Marchisio's cross is poor and cleared. But given away again and Krasic finds Melo, now Del Piero but Krasic fails to find Quag and Palermo can bring it away.
    • 21' Great ball far post but Munoz pushes Pepe as he connects with the finish, which Storari gathers anyway.
    • 20' Palermo break and Pinillo races away only for Marchisio to take him out. His fifth yellow so far in all competitions.
    • 20' Chiellini and Melo attack the same ball at the far post, hands in the air before they realise they got in each other's way.
    • 19' Del Piero's cross from the free-kick is flicked on by Bonucci but it takes a touch off Bovo and Juve have a corner on the left.
    • 18' Bovo with a clumsy late tackle on Krasic, his fourth yellow card of the season.
    • 17' Woeful long ball from Grygera with no-one close to being advanced enough and straight to Sirigu.
    • 16' Munoz with a poor defensive header that drops to DEL PIERO ON HIS LEFT but he drills it a yard or so wide. More even, a half-chance.
    • 15' Motta on the right lofts a diagonal ball far post, Del Piero flies in but can't connect and Pepe does but his shot bounces across goal and wide and no-one can get a touch! Quagliarella thinks he was fouled but no response from the ref.
    • 14' Long ball aimed for Pinilla but he is offside. The brought the former Hearts - yes Hearts - striker in after selling Edinson Cavani to Napoli this summer.
    • 13' Luigi Del Neri looks perplexed on the sidelines. He thought this had gone away after the resounding win at the weekend.
    • 12' Del Piero is caught offside, well offside, as Pepe doesn't release the pass in time.
    • 10' Cool defending from Cassani to play his way out of trouble. Palermo in control right now.
    • 9' The corner is weak and cleared and a long shot comes in from Marchisio, which he mis-hits wide.
    • 8' Pepe gets in down the left for the first time, finding Grygera on the overlap, his cross is low and weak but deflected behind the near post, almost catching the keeper Sirigu out. Corner.
    • 7' Pinilla is fouled by Krasic and Palermo have a free-kick a touch to the left, 35 yards out. Bovo lofts it wide right but Cassani is offside. Wasteful.
    • 6' It's hard to pin down what is wrong with Juve's defence which on paper - while not as classy as those of yore - should be adept at dealing with basic diagonal balls and a bit of pace. But it can't. They get dragged out of position and seem to panic far too easily.
    • 5' Krasic bursts down the right but again Balzaretti does well to keep with him and the cross spoons behind for a goal kick.
    • 4' Juve are really struggling as Pastore gets in behind again but his low drive is straight at Storari.
    • 3' Pastore is played onside and Ilicic is on the ball, Cassani on the overlap but Chiellini manages to head clear. Juve on the rack.
    • 2' GOAL PALERMO! The Juve defence opens up to let Pinilla in after a one-two with Ilicic, he should score but Storari makes a really good save, Juve's dreadful defence just stand and watch though as Pastore rams home the loose ball! Shocking defending, woeful, and Palermo are ahead!
    • 1' Krasic gets the crowd going with an early run down the right but Balzaretti gets across him. Melo has the ball now and he almost slides the Serb through but just the wrong side of him and Palermo clear.
    • 1' The first half is underway in Turin (three and a half minutes late)!
    • 19:45 A delay in kick off as the teams take their time to come out of the dressing rooms.
    • 19:40 TEAMS - Juventus: Storari, Motta, Bonucci, Chiellini, Grygera, Marchisio, Melo, Krasic, Pepe, Quagliarella, Del Piero; Subs: Manninger, Iaquinta, Legrottaglie, Aquilani, Rinaudo, Amauri, Sissoko /// Palermo: Sirigu, Caasani, Munoz, Bovo, Balzaretti, Bacinovic, Migliaccio, Nocerino, Pastore, Ilicic, Pinilla; Subs: Benussi, Liverani, Miccoli, Darmian, Hernandez, Rigoni, Kasami
