    • 90' FULL TIME. Juve win the Derby d'Italia 2-0 in Turin.
    • 89' Milito uses his elbow to get beyond Chiellini and we are seeing handbags at the end of this one.
    • 87' Quagliarella collects the ball on the right and, under pressure from Nagatomo, shots early to the near post - but Julio Cesar is able to keep the shot out with his feet.
    • 85' The first Derby d'Italia of 2012 has been a fantastic spectacle but can Inter make it a difficult final few minutes for Juve?
    • 82' What a header by Chiellini! The defender rises high and sends a bullet header towards the Inter goal but Julio Cesar acrobatically tips it over.
    • 80' Inter seeing far more of the ball here but Juve have everyone behind the ball and are making life very difficult for the visiting attack.
    • 78' Juve sub: Quagliarella on, Vucinic off.
    • 76' How on earth did Maicon get to that?
    • 74' The momentum is really with Juve at the moment as Chiellini bursts through the Inter defence and passes to Bonucci at the far post, whose shot is brilliantly blocked on the line by Maicon.
    • 71' GOAL! Del Piero makes it 2-0. Vidal spots the Italian's run and he slots the ball inside the far post with a clinical finish. And he celebrates his first league goal of the season wildly!
    • 70' Milito cuts in from the left but pulls his low shot a metre wide.
    • 68' Inter sub: Faraoni & Pazzini on, Poli & Obi off
    • 67' Chiellini sends a teasing cross towards the far post but it's just over the head of Vidal, who had made a good run forward down the right.
    • 65' Inter are keeping the ball well at the moment but look short of ideas in the final third.
    • 63' But this time Inter clear their lines.
    • 62' Bonucci releases Caceres with a sweeping long ball out to the right - and Nagatomo is forced to clear for another Juve corner.
    • 60' Lucio gets away with a trip on Vucinic, who was clean through.
    • 58' It should be said that Inter's marking was absolutely diabolical though. The marking was non-existent.
    • 57' GOAL! Caceres gives Juve the lead! Pirlo whips in an outswinging corner from the right and the unmarked Caceres heads in. Simple as that.
    • 56' Marchisio goes for goal with a dipping drive from distance but Julio Cesar tips over.
    • 54' Juve double sub: Del Piero & Bonucci on, Matri & Pepe off.
    • 52' Chiellini fires an early shot from distance - but Julio Cesar has it covered.
    • 51' Pepe collects the ball in a great position on the right but he hammers an early shot straight into the legs of Walter Samuel.
    • 50' Zanetti rolls the ball into the path of Maicon, but his cross is hopelessly over hit and sails over the head of Forlan, who was waiting in the box.
    • 48' Forlan rolss a free-kick to Nagatomo, who goes for goal with a low effort but it's comfortable for Buffon.
    • 46' SECOND HALF.
    • 45' Can Inter pull of an upset and snatch a winning goal? Or will Juve sneak a vital win? Let me know on Twitter
    • 45' HALF TIME. That's the end of an engrossing, but goalless, opening 45 minutes in the Derby d'Italia. It's 0-0 in Turin.
    • 45' Inter's Poli sees yellow for a tug on Vucinic.
    • 43' Inter have fought back after that good spell for Juve earlier in the half. Inter are playing well, but this one could go either way still.
    • 42' Stankovic lets fly with a cracking low volley that Buffon clears away with his legs for a corner.
    • 40' Forlan feigns a shot and slides the ball into Nagatomo - but Caceres gets back to make a vital challenge.
    • 39' Vucinic cuts in from the left and lets fly with a good low effort - but Julio Cesar manages to hang on to the ball.
    • 38' Milito is obstructed by Chiellini as he was running towards the penalty area - but no free-kick is given. Seemed like a clear foul to me.
    • 36' Obi lets fly from 35 yards with a superb left-footed shot that Buffon pushes away to safety - but he looked far from comfortable there.
    • 34' Nagatomo sees yellow for a late, slightly cynical, challenge on Pepe.
    • 33' This has been a game of many chances so far. You wouldn't bet against either side opening the scoring.
    • 31' Great moment for Inter as Milito brings down Stankovic's long ball with a sublime first touch, before his venomous shot is palmed out by Buffon. It comes back out to Milito, but this time the Argetine lashes it over the bar.
    • 29' Forlan comes close at the other end, as the Uruguayan flicks on Maicon's corner at the near post but Buffon pulls off a superb reflex save to keep it out.
    • 27' Juve are making chances for fun! Pepe whips a beautiful cross to Caceres, who flicks it on to Vucinic at the far post - but the striker can't make contact as he slides in.
    • 26' Two big chances for Juve.
    • 25' Marchisio drops a beautiful cross in from the left but Pepe can't quite make contact with his head. But Caceres picks up the pieces on the right and drills a low ball into the feet of Matri, but he spoons his first-time shot over the bar.
    • 23' Vidal drives forward and, with no other options, he drives a low shot straight at Julio Cesar.
    • 21' Vucinic bizarrely tackles his own man, Marchisio! Vucinic then swings a ball in from the left but it's too high for Vidal and the chance is gone.
    • 19' A promising break for Juve ends when Marchisio miscontrols Pirlo's ball out to the left and it runs out of play.
    • 18' Pepe goes in hard but fair on Nagatomo. It's that kind of game.
    • 17' Great chance for Juve! Matri gets on the end of Caceras's cross from the right but sends his free header straight at Julio Cesar, who palms the ball away.
    • 16' Juve looking to get forward through Pepe, but he swings a high ball in from the right that Julio Cesar deals with easily.
    • 14' Inter pressing higher up the pitch and looking good at the moment.
    • 13' Milito was under pressure there but he'll be disappointed he couldn't open the scoring there.
    • 12' Great chance for Inter! Maicon drives inside from right back and finds Milito, but the striker's poked effort is saved by Buffon.
    • 10' Maicon fires a dangerous low cross in from the right and Marchisio has to get across to clear for Inter's first corner.
    • 9' Inter finally have an attack. Nagatomo gets forward down the left and lofts a high ball into the middle towards Milito, but he is muscled out of it by Chiellini, who heads the ball clear.
    • 8' Maicon catches Marchisio rather late but the Brazilian escapes a yellow card.
    • 6' Vidal plays in Caceres on the right but his whipped early cross is cut out. All Juve early on.
    • 5' Inter struggling to hold onto the ball when they get it at the moment. Juve closing very quickly in the early stages.
    • 3' Vidal makes a driving run forward and plays in Pepe on the right, but his low cross is fumbled by Julio Cesar and Inter eventually clear.
    • 2' Vucinic cuts in from the right and looks for an opening to shoot before upending Stankovic.
    • 1' KICK OFF.
    • 19.42 JUVENTUS: Buffon, Caceres, Barzagli, Chiellini, De Ceglie, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Pepe, Matri, Vucinic. SUBS: Storari, Bonucci, Marrone, Padoin, Del Piero, Quagliarella, Borriello /// INTER MILAN: Julio Cesar, Maicon, Samuel, Lucio, Nagatomo, Zanetti, Poli, Stankovic, Obi, Forlan, Milito. SUBS: Castellazzi, Ranocchia, Chivu, Faraoni, Guarin, Cambiasso, Pazzini.
    • 19:40 No surprises for Juve, who field their standard XI, Martin Caceres at right-back and Alex Matri leading the line. Inter go with Poli over Cambiasso, while Diego Forlan starts to pour scorn on reports of a major fall-out with Claudio Ranieri. Pazzini and Cambiasso on the bench.
    • 19:35 Juve lie second, seven points behind Milan. So a win is essential for them. Inter, meanwhile, are a dreadful eighth in the standings, far enough behind sixth-placed Roma on goal difference that victory would only move them to seventh. They are 10 points behind the Champions League places. Serie A standings
