    • 90+5 And that's it. A great result for Samp - stay here for the report.
    • 90+4 Vucini has a half-chance but takes a fraction too long and he ends up toe poking the ball straight at a Samp leg.
    • 90+3 After a hiatus, Juve have two minutes to get something from this game.
    • 90+1 Marchisio stretches for a ball from Giaccherini and goes down clutching his knee. He is in some obvious discomfort and it looks like a knee injury. Stretcher on and we’re into added time - of which there will be four.
    • 89' Pirlo finds Peluso out wide but his cross is too close to Romero – Samp are edging closer to a first win for Delio Rossi.
    • 87' Pirlo finds Padoin down the right, he comes inside but his effort is easily saved.
    • 86' The ball is played to Giovinco inside the box but he goes down very easily – no penalty and a pretty poor effort at a dive.
    • 85' Marchisio lifts a ball to the far post but Obiang rises to head it out for a corner.
    • 84' Vucini finds Giovinco in behind but his lofted cross is cleared. The resulting corner is worked to Marchisio, but, under pressure, he drags his effort well wide.
    • 82' Pirlo gives away a free-kick and Romero is carded for time wasting.
    • 80' Tissone for Krsticic for the visitors as Juve turn the screw.
    • 78' Giaccherini gives away a free-kick for handball and it is some respite for the visiting defence.
    • 77' Peluso stands up a wonderful ball to the back post, Quagliarella heads back across the goal and Vucini can only direct it wide of the post from inside the six-yard box.
    • 76' That’s Eder’s last contribution as he is withdrawn for Munari.
    • 75' Super, super stuff from Samp. Eder has been fantastic and he leads another charge down the right.
    • - Pogba was replaced by Giaccherini in the wake of the goal.
    • 72' So, so close from Vucini. He takes the ball on his chest before lashing the ball against the crossbar as the hosts chase the leveller.
    • 70' What an incredible turnaround.
    • 68' INCREDIBLE!!!!! Obiang picks the ball up in acres of space in the midfield and drives forward before slipping the ball to Icardi inside the Juve box. He takes the ball to what seems an impossible angle before trashing he ball into the top corner from the right of the six-yard box.
    • 68' Marchisio feeds Pogba, who lets the ball run across him before dragging an effort wide of the post. Samp have been exceptional on the break.
    • 67' The visitors ae having the better of it.
    • 65' Peluso’s cross is cut out and Eder carries the ball the length of the pitch before stinging the palms of Buffon from distance.
    • 63' CHANCE!! Eder weaves this way and that before digging out a cross to Poli in space at the back post – the captain shapes to shoot but loses his footing and the effort is down into the ground and then over the bar.
    • 61' Double sub for the hosts: Quagliarella and Vucini for Matri and De Ceglie.
    • 60' Samp have a decent spot of possession before speeding up play to Eder, who goes down under the challenge of Barzagli. No penalty though.
    • 58' Peluso clips the ball into the far post and Matri rises but his header drifts wide.
    • 56' Poli leads by example and steals the ball from Pogba in the left-back positon and the visitors clear.
    • 54' It is ten men behind the ball now as Juve pour forward.
    • 53' Poor, poor goalkeeping there.
    • 52' GOOOAL!! Incredible. Icardi is on the shoulder of Peluso. Krsticic finds him with a first-time ball over the top and he hits it first time from outside the box, and Buffon lets it through his grasp. 1-1.
    • 49' It is all Juventus come the opening of the second half here – this is going to be a long half for the visitors.
    • 47' De Silvestri on for Estigarribia for the visitors.
    • 46' Juve get the second half underway.
    • 45+1 That's it from the first half.
    • 45' Bonucci goes down under the challenge of Gastaldello inside the box but the referee waves away the appeals – looked like a penalty, which could have been Juve’s third.
    • 44' Estigarribia gets the free-kick up and over the wall but it drops the wrong side of the post with Buffon beaten.
    • 43' Poli wins a free-kick about 25 yards out and right of centre following a late challenge from Pirlo.
    • 42' Marchisio lifts the ball to Padoin on the right who beats his man and dinks a ball to the far post that Costa puts out for a corner, which is wasted by Pirlo. His delivery has been surprisingly poor this afternoon.
    • 40' Giovinco continues to work the channels. He is behind the back four again and wins a free-kick by the corner flag. Pirlo clips it in but it is too close to Romero.
    • 38' Giovinco fails to do the required justice to Pirlo’s exceptional first-time ball in behind the visiting defence when he flashes the ball across the box with Pogba on the edge. What a ball.
    • 36' Palombo is very, very fortunate there. Marchisio clips the ball to Giovinco, who majestically chests the ball into the path of Matri who is the wrong side of the defender. Palombo hauls him down inside the box without a doubt but the referee gives a free-kick for handball against the forward.
    • 34' The Blucerchiati were under the cosh as it was but this going to be a damage limitation exercise now.
    • 32' Oh dear. Berardi, who was booked for giving away the penalty, is late on Barzagli and the referee brandishes another yellow and he is off.
    • 30' The resulting corner is again worked short and slung into the box where an almighty scramble ends with Romero claiming at the feet of Matri on the goal line.
    • 29' The corner is played short for Giovinco who trashes the ball across the box. Pogba almost scores a wonder overhead kick but the visitors clear.
    • 28' Pirlo’s free-kick from the left - which looked destined for the head of Matri - is cleared for a corner.
    • 26' Eder has a shot charged down before collecting the loose ball and looking for Icardi at the back post but Juve clear.
    • 24' GGOOOAAL!! Giovinco makes no mistake with a firm strike into the bottom left. Keeper went the right way but there was too much quality on the strike.
    • 23' Juve break this time. Pilro finds Marchisio, who drives into the box before turning smartly. The turn completely fools Berardi who hacks him down. Penalty. The Samp man gets a yellow.
    • 22' Samp are playing Juve pretty well – they are sitting deep and then hitting on the break.
    • 20' Chance for Giovinco. Pogba’s charged down shot falls to the forward but his effort from by the penalty spot is claimed by Romero. He really, really should be scoring there – he had time and space.
    • 18' Poli with a chance. Giovinco tries to be too clever near his own box and his turn is read by the Samp player. The ball breaks to Poli on the edge of the box with only Buffon to beat but there is no conviction in the effort and the keeper claims.
    • 16' All eleven men behind the ball here from the visitors but Estigarribia leads a quick break to win a corner off Pogba. The hosts clear but Pirlo is fouled on the halway line, and Poli is in the book for the indiscretion.
    • 14' De Ceglie gets another opportunity to cross but again it is too close to Romero, who claims at the near post.
    • 12' Pilro picks out Giovinco but the ball has too much on it - lots of pressure from the hosts.
    • 10' Padoin exchanges passes with Pogba on the wing before ghosting past the full-back and finding Giovinco, who had pulled off his man. The ball is good but the diminutive forward gets under the strike from the penalty spot – that was a chance.
    • 8' Estigarribia weaves this way and that before tripping over his own feet. He loses the ball. Juve break but the Samp player is prone on the ground. We have a slight hiatus for an injury – looks like a dislocated finger.
    • 6' Sampdoria make their first break forward but there is a breakdown in communication as Icardi picks the wrong pass and Buffon claims. Eder had come short.
    • 5' Giovinco is in behind but his cross is behind Matri and in his eagerness to retrieve the ball Padoin gives away a free-kick.
    • 4' De Ceglie flashes a ball across the box and although Giovinco is lurking Romero collects with ease.
    • 3' Samp go long again over the head of new man Peluso but there is too much on it and Berardi can’t get to it.
    • 2' De Ceglie is found by Pogba down the left but his cross is charged down.
    • 1' Paolo Valeri gives his whistle a toot and the visitors get us underway but they go long and the ball is straight out on the full.
    • 13:55 Lazio won at home to Cagliari last night to cut the deficit at the top of Serie A to five points. Read the match report and live comments here.
    • 13:50 Samp are only two points above the relegation zone but a win today would see Delio Rossi’s men as high as twelfth, but six of the last eight meetings between these sides have been drawn.
    • 13:45 Juve: Buffon, Barzagli, Bonucci, Peluso, Padoin, Pogba, Pirlo, Marchisio, De Ceglie, Matri, Giovinco. Subs: Storari, Branescu, Caceres, Marrone, Isla, Vidal, Giaccherini, Quagliarella, Vucini. /// Samp: Romero, Gastaldello, Palombo, Costa, Berardi, Krsticic, Obiang, Poli, Estigarribia, Eder, Icardi. Subs: Da Costa, Berni, Castellini, De Silvestri, Mustafi, Poulsen, Rossini, Munari, Renan, Tissone, Savic.
    • 13:40 Delio Rossi is still after a first win since replacing Ciro Ferrara as Sampdoria boss last month. The visitors are without injured midfielder Enzo Maresca. Maxi Lopez, Simon Poulsen and Sergio Romero all face late fitness tests while Roberto Soriano suspended for the trip to Turin.
    • 13:35 A four-game winning run sent Juve eight points clear of the chasing pack going to the winter break, and the haul of 94 points in a calendar year broke a previous record held by Fabio Capello's team as the bianconeri made it a year not to forget. Despite this the club have been busy already this transfer window – they have been in contact with Fernando Llorente regarding signing on a free in the summer whilst also showing interest in Didier Drogba.
