OH!! Jajalo plays a one-two with Maccarone, the Croatian makes a run towards the goal and fires a shot, which is dangerously deflected by Molinaro! It's out for a corner.. but it comes to nothing.
 
48′
Siena have a corner, it's hit short for Jajalo who goes past Caceres and tries to surprise Buffon from the left side of the area, but his shot is weak.
 
48′
It seems Juve have at least started the second half with a better attitude.

46′
Substitution Zdenek Grygera Martín Cáceres

OOH!! Chiellini has a chance with a header on a free kick by Diego, but he sends it well wide.

36′
Yellow Card Nicola Legrottaglie
 
33′
Diego seems a bit more involved in Juve's attacks now, but the Bianconeri's strikers are struggling to make themselves dangerous.
 
31′
OH!! Diego takes a free kick from near the area, Vergassola anticipates Chiellini but he accidentally heads it towards his own goal, Curci grabs it though!

15′
Curci punches the Juve corner kick away.
 
14′
De Ceglie and Trezeguet play a nice one-two, the midfielder then fires a shot from 20 meters which is deflected out for a corner. First opportunity of the match!
 
12′
Diego plays a long ball forward for De Ceglie, who can't get there. It was not a great pass from the Brazilian playmaker.
 
10′
Ten minutes gone, and there hasn't been even a half-chance here at Siena. Juve need to step it up if they are going to take home all three points...
 
7′
Diego tries to find Amauri with a long ball over the Siena defence, but it's too long.

Welcome to Goal.com's live coverage of Serie A. Juventus will need all three points from their trip to Siena in order to keep up with Inter, who moved two points clear at the top with yesterday's victory against Catania. With a victory today, Juve would only move within four points of the Nerazzurri, so they are strongly in need of all three points...
