  • Live Commentary

    • 90+4 There's the whistle, Juve win 2-0 and that is 12 points on Napoli, who play tomorrow.
    • 90+2 Conte roars the away fans on. This is a big win and he wants them to show it.
    • 90+1 Peluso with a fine pass to the Quag, but his deflected shot is easy for Curci.
    • 90' Four minutes added time being played.
    • 89' JUVE SUB: Quagliarella replaces Vidal.
    • 88' Terrible miss Matri as Marchisio put him clean through with a lovely pass, but his blushes are spared by the flag - he was on though!
    • 87' Straight away Naldo gets caught out positionally but the hosts manage to clear. He's not a Serie A defender, not even close.
    • 86' Diamanti to take, he swings it towards the top left and in flies Naldo with a flick but parried by Buffon!
    • 85' Free-kick to Bologna. On the right, but shooting range. Diamanti to take...
    • 84' Pirlo fires a curler just wide after a fine run from halfway. That's the third such effort in this half - curling effort, not curling enough - after tries from Vucinic and Giovinco.
    • 82' JUVENTUS SUB: Vucinic, who has been excellent, is replaced by Matri.
    • 81' Terrible corner from Diamanti that drops almost for a throw.
    • 80' Corner to Bologna now as Diamanti does well on the left.
    • 78' Bologna are really having a go to be fair - and the match is not over by any means!
    • 77' ... But Diamanti spins it into Buffon's arms.
    • 76' Free-kick to Bologna on the left...
    • 75' JUVE SUB: Pogba comes on for the visitors. He scored the winner against this lot earlier this season.
    • 74' That move all came from some lovely skill and a pass from his own half by Pirlo.
    • 73' GOAL JUVE! I was just saying... It's Marchisio with the finish across Curci and inside the bottom right after a one-two with Vucinic. Game over.
    • 71' Bologna giving it their all now - but Juve love to counter-attack.
    • 70' BOLOGNA SUB: Christodoulopoulos comes on for Garics - somehow the borderline deranged Perez stays on!
    • 69' Diamanti picks out Gabbiadini, whose daisy-cutter sees Buffon go down in slo-mo as he tips it behind. Corner.
    • 68' Diamanti gets past Vidal before curling a cross over. Cleared, dropping for Perez, Garics with a second cross but Bonucci blocks!
    • 67' Padoin goes in late on Morleo, who rolls around in mock agony - obviously he's ok - and he is booked.
    • 66' Perez again lucky not to be sent off for a foul on Pirlo. Vucinic, meanwhile, hits a low drive just wide!
    • 65' Diamanti late on Vucinic, he is booked and he will be suspended.
    • 64' Diamanti takes it short, Perez crosses in but Chiellini clears.
    • 63' Padoin now with a poor challenge on Diamanti, who like Chiellini likes to roll about.
    • 62' GOAL JUVENTUS! Great pass from Marchisio to find Vucinic, who turned Naldo brilliantly before toe-poking it past Curci. Perez - whose head has totally gone - was all over the place.
    • 61' Antonsson gets it clear after that Pirlo corner caused problems.
    • 60' Juve have a corner now which Pirlo will swing in.
    • 59' Perez with a terrible tackle on Peluso, he's just been booked! But he gets away with it as the ref waves Juve away! Perez needs to be subbed now, he's lost his head.
    • 58' It was Kone who came off for Naldo.
    • 57' BOLOGNA SUB: There has been a change, but the ongoing row about Chiellini's challenge with Perez continues so it's hard to see who's come and gone. Confirmation in a minute.
    • 56' Bodies rolling around from both sides as the referee waves play on. Now Perez is booked for a foul on Chiellini, which the Italian rolls around after for good effect. Embarassing for a big man.
    • 55' A bit of a breather after that frantic spell. Really good game this, only missing a goal.
    • 53' Vucinic with a cross in for Padoin but Bologna get it clear.
    • 52' GREAT SAVE CURCI! Giovinco with a mazy run and rasping drive but the keeper is equal to it!
    • 51' Diamanti will take the free-kick himself - GREAT BALL IN AND GILARDINO BURIES THE HEADER! But the flag is up! Disallowed and he was half a yard offside!
    • 50' Barzagli leaves Diamanti in a heap. The former West Ham forward appears to have recovered from that 'elbow' earlier.
    • 49' Great start to this half - I'd be very surprised if we don't get a goal.
    • 47' Marchisio brings the ball clear, now Peluso on the ball, he feeds to Vucinic WHO PICKS OUT GIOVINCO TO PLACE THE FINISH BUT HE CURLS IT WIDE!
    • 46' Free-kick to Bologna on the right which Diamanti whips in, but Buffon holds tight as no-one gets a touch.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+4 Half-time and it's goalless, but not through any lack of incident!
    • 45+3 Great run by Morleo but he gets the through-ball all wrong. Juve counter as Vucinic releases Vidal down the right, loads of space but he hits a wild shot over the bar!
    • 45+2 Marchisio is chopped down by Perez, who escapes a booking. Clumsy more than anything.
    • 45+1 Giovinco and Vidal do not manage to combine as they try to work it down the left.
    • 45' Three minutes added one. Diamanti still not happy, I think he may go off.
    • 44' Diamanti has blood coming out of his ear but he seems okay to continue. Pirlo's elbow struck the side of his face. Play resumes.
    • 43' Looking at that incident again, it seemed accidental as Pirlo shielded the ball. Diamanti took a whack on the head.
    • 42' Diamanti is down injured after colliding with Pirlo...
    • 41' Vidal overhits a through ball that would have sent Giovinco through! Poor ball!
    • 39' Good run by Garics down the right but his centre is blocked and Buffon has it back.
    • 37' That was a remarkable intervention from the Swede. Not sure how he hooked that away between Vucinic's legs.
    • 36' Brilliant run by Padoin in from the right and a fantastic low ball that Antonsson somehow flicks away from Vucinic, who was set to tap it in with Curci stranded!
    • 34' Finally Pirlo's ball comes in and Bologna clear.
    • 33' Pirlo to take the corner from the left, all manner of nonsense in the box that the ref has a chat about...
    • 32' Great cross by Padoin on the right but Garics nods it away from Peluso, who hits the deck rather easily.
    • 31' Good stuff from Bologna now, who seem to have the measure of Juve all of a sudden. The Bianconeri stuck in their half.
    • 29' Perez sends Gabbiadini away down the right, now Kone on it, decent cross but Bonucci hacks clear.
    • 28' Now Diamanti is dumped to the turf by Marchisio. All a bit scrappy at the moment.
    • 27' Antonsson is booked for a trip on Giovinco from behind. Bologna accuse him of simulating but he's only little and he was properly dumped there.
    • 25' Chiellini clearly blocks Diamanti, yet the ref waves play on. Hmmm.
    • 24' Garics on the right puts in a teasing cross but Barzaglo heads clear. The second ball in drops for Gilardino but he half-volleys well wide. Not sure what Bonucci was doing there.
    • 22' Peluso is booked for a rough challenge on Kone after Diamanti sent him scuttling away.
    • 21' Peluso on the left, tries to exchange balls with Marchisio but it squeezes back to Curci.
    • 20' Diamanti with a run down the left, Gilardino gives chase but Barzagli defends well.
    • 19' VIDAL BLASTS OVER! Should have scored after a great off-the-ball run by Vucinic to reach Giovinco's ball, but the Chilean got under it and missed the chance.
    • 18' Giovinco with a superb run inside, nutmegging Garics before mis-hitting his finish straight at Curci!
    • 17' Pirlo on a mazy run but Diamanti manages to nick the ball off him and Bologna clear.
    • 16' Decent spell for Juve here as they pile the pressure on the hosts.
    • 14' Played long by Curci from the free-kick but Pirlo eases Kone before going down. Seems to have hurt himself.
    • 13' Marchisio and Garics tangle, the Juve man pulling his shirt, spotted by the ref.
    • 12' Good defending from Antonsson to nod a long ball back to Curci.
    • 11' Gila is chopped down by Peluso, a wild swing. Poor Gila in the wars.
    • 10' Foul on Vidal as he moves forward down the right. Wasted though as Pirlo's ball is well beyond Vucinic.
    • 9' A promising Juve move breaks down as Giovinco's cross for Vucinic lands short.
    • 7' Finally Bologna take the corner, Diamanti with the delivery, but Vucinic chests it away and Juve clear long.
    • 6' Buffon could easily have been sent off, Diamanti could easily have scored. A delay before the corner as Gila gets some treatment.
    • 5' INCHES WIDE BY DIAMANTI! Deflcted I think, Buffon raced out of his box to slide in on Gilardino after the striker sprung a rotten offside trap! Risky from Buffon, terrible from his defence!
    • 4' Giovinco spreads it wide to release Peluso, he strides clear and plays over a nice cross but Curci gathers.
    • 3' Strong challenge from Chiellini, he comes away with it and frees Peluso but Vucinic can't hold it up and Peluso commits a foul.
    • 2' Marchisio gives away a fre-ekick, swung in Diamanti. Buffon punches poorly and Bologna have it back. Morleo swings over a cross but the flag is up and Juve have it back.
    • 1' Juve almost score from kick-off as Chiellini strides forward, combining with Vidal and Marchisio but the final ball bounces just beyond the Chilean and into Curci's arms!
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 19:40 Referee: Bergonzi (Genoa).
    • 19:35 TEAMS: Bologna: Curci, Garics, Antonsson, Cherubin, Morleo, Perez, Taider; Kone, Diamonds, Gabbiadini, Gilardino; Subs: Agliardi, Lombardi, Naldo, De Carvalho, Krhin, Patience, Abero, Guarente, Motta /// Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Padoin, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Peluso, Vucinic, Giovinco; Subs: Storari, Rubinho, Brown, De Ceglie, Giaccherini, Lichtsteiner, Pogba, Isla, Asamoah, Anelka, Quagliarella, Matri
