Live Commentary

  • 90' + 5'
    AND IT IS OVER! Juventus claim their third win in a row! Bonucci and Rossi traded own goals, before Floro Flores put Genoa in the lead. Matri equalised for the Old Lady before Luca Toni gave the Bianconeri the three points late in the game! Stay with us for our post-match materials and do not forget to join us later today for our live coverage of Fiorentina - Milan! Bye, for now!
  • 90' + 4'
    TONI! Bad miss from the veteran! Matri broke free on the left wing and released Luca Toni on the counter, but the ex-Bayern Munich man sent his finish inches wide of the left post from inside the penalty area semi-circle. That could have been crucial on another day, but Toni already did enough in this game!
  • 90' + 3'
    MATRI! Horrible miss! Eduardo hesitantly deflected a delivery from Krasic on the right into the path of Matri, who, under no pressure at all, blasted his volley from 7 yards out over the bar first time.
  • 90' + 1'
    There will be three minutes of injury time.
  • 89'
    FLORO FLORES! What a miss! Bonucci was late to mark the hitman, who went for the spectacular with a sidekick from the right side of the box, but his finish flew just over the bar! That would have been a great goal, indeed!
  • 88'
    Yellow Card Marco Storari
  • 87'
    Genoa now launching everything they have forward in search of the equaliser.
  • 85'
    Luca Toni certainly deserved that strike! Great finish from the target man, and an inspirational cameo so far for him.
  • 83'
    Assist Alberto Aquilani
  • 83'
    Goal Luca Toni
  • 83'
    GOAL! LUCA TONI SCORES! A strike against his former club! The big hitman was picked out on the left side of the box, shook off Dainelli and flicked the ball past Eduardo! Great strike!
  • 82'
    Matri takes the worst decision of all as he heads the ball instead of Toni from a very difficult angle, and it goes without saying that this foray ended miserably.
  • 81'
    SubstitutionOmar Milanetto Enej Jelenic
  • 81'
    Martinez replaced Pepe three minutes ago. The Uruguayan, widely considered the biggest flop of all Juventus' signings this season, will be keen to impress.
  • 80'
    Sorensen is struggling on the ground after a collision with Rossi. It does not look too serious to be honest.
  • 79'
    Lights out for Eduardo after he collided with Dainelli as he was trying to punch Pepe's delivery away from his box.
  • 78'
    SubstitutionSimone Pepe J. Martínez
  • 78'
    Dainelli concedes a free-kick on the left, outside of Genoa's box. Pepe is about to take it ...
  • 77'
    Yellow Card Dario Dainelli
  • 76'
    Just moments before Pepe's shot, Palacio nearly got Genoa infront, but his dipping finish for the top left corner from inside the box missed wide.
  • 74'
    GREAT SAVE BY EDUARDO! Toni did superbly to shield the ball and tee up for Pepe, who sent a low finish, which Eduardo somehow managed to block and the ball went out for a corner on the right. This set-piece amounted to nothing.
  • 72'
    SO close! Toni nearly reached Pepe's high delivery with his head! He would have scored on another day here.
  • 71'
    Corner kick for Juventus on the left ... Pepe is about to take it ...
  • 70'
    Yellow Card Leonardo Bonucci
  • 69'
    SubstitutionAlberto Paloschi Rodrigo Palacio
  • 69'
    Palacio replaces Paloschi for Genoa. The youngster did not have the game of his career tonight. The Grifoni faithful will be hoping the ex-Boca Juniors man can deliver.
  • 67'
    Sorensen with a great clearance from inside the box. The Dane controlled a high cross on his chest and volleyed to safety.

    Goal Antonio Floro Flores
  • 57'
    GOAL! Stunning strike by Floro Flores! Antonelli went on a fine run down the left, and centred from the left side of the box for Floro Flores near the penalty spot, who took a touch before firing a wonderful volley into the right post, which deflected into the net.
  • 54'
    Motta is booked for a cynical foul on the flank. Completely needless.
  • 53'
    Yellow Card Marco Motta
  • 52'
    KRASIC! The midfielder was released in a one-on-one with Eduaro, but saw his low finish with the outside of his foot blocked by the goalkeeper! Great chance here.
  • 50'
    Own Goal Marco Rossi
  • 50'
    Assist Simone Pepe
  • 50'
    GOAL! Juventus are back in the game! Another own goal! Marco Rossi headed a Pepe finish from inside the box past Eduardo, following a cross by Motta from the right, to draw the game level! Most strikers would be proud of such finish.
  • 49'
    There were no changes at half-time for either team. Luca Toni and Hasan Salihamidzic were warming up for the Bianconeri shortly before the start of the first half.
  • 47'
    ANTONELLI! SO CLOSE! The winger was released on the left side of the box and whipped in a dangerous cross, misdirected, however, and it forced Storari into a great block, and the ball went out for a corner on the left. Nothing came off that set-piece.
  • 46'
    The second half begins ...
  • 45' + 2'
    The first half is through! Genoa are leading through an own goal by Leonardo Bonucci, who deflected a fine finish by ex-MIlan man Luca Antonelli into his own net. Juventus have been the better going forward today, but have failed to make their chances count! Join us after the break for the second half of this exciting game!
  • 45' + 1'
    Great clearance by Kaladze! The ex-Milan man did superbly to clear a cross right before Matri could make contact just outside the six-yard box!
  • 45'
    PEPE! WHAT A MISS! Motta whipped in a stunning cross from the right touchline, and with Mesto misjudging the flight of the ball, Pepe was left with a free-header, but send it wide of the left post from 8 yards out. Great anticipation by Pepe, however.
  • 43'
    Juventus are in full control now and are pressing hard for the equaliser. A goal before half-time would do miracles for the Bianconeri.
  • 41'
    BONUCCI! The defender found himself on the end of a great ball in the box, following the corner on the right by Krasic, but had his close-range header blocked superbly by Eduardo.
  • 40'
    Into the wall and out for a corner on the left. Pepe takes it, but it misses Melo after taking a reflection and goes out for a corner kick on the right.
  • 39'
    Eduardo is preparing his wall as Pepe is about to take a free-kick on the right.
  • 37'
    Great delivery from Krasic, but the ball is cleared ... than it is in again .. MELO! The Brazilian had his diving header blocked by Kaladze from 8 yards out!
  • 36'
    Juventus win a corner on the left... Krasic is about to take it.
  • 34'
    Marchisio tries to perform a bicycle kick clearance, but instead of making contact with the ball, he makes contact with the ground. Barzagli was there to sort that out and clear the ball.
  • 32'
    A great counter-attack by Genoa is ruined by a horrible cross by Antonelli, who failed to make decent contact with the ball after being relesed by Paloschi on the right.
  • 30'
    Juventus are yet to threaten Eduardo's goal seriously .. The Old Lady have a knack of delivering a tame performance after two wins and seems this is going to be the case again.
  • 28'
    Krasic tries to break free on the left wing, but Paloschi is not of that opinion and tackles him from behind and, naturally, concedes a foul.
  • 26'
    Great run and cross by Motta on the right wing, but his delivery is dealt with by Kaladze, who forces Krasic into a little flick, and the ball goes out for a goal kick.
  • 24'
    Decent delivery by the ex-Udinese man, but Marchisio is unable to make decent contact and the ball is cleared.
  • 23'
    Traore is brought down by Konko on the right, just outside the box. Pepe is about to take the free-kick ...
  • 21'
    MELO! The Brazilian let it fly from 25 yards out, but his shot was poorly placed and flew right into Eduardo's hands. There was power, but no precision.
  • 19'
    Juventus have taken the initiative in the last couple of minutes and are looking for space to exploit on the flanks.
  • 17'
    Motta tries to break free on the right wing, but Moretti makes a vital interception and shields the ball, forcing the ex-Roma defender into a foul.
  • 15'
    Floro Flores is brought down by Felipe Melo near the touchline. He could have received the booking, seeing how the foul was made from behind.
  • 13'
    Antonelli whips in a cross from the byline for Paloschi, but the ex-Milan man is well blocked by Bonucci and the ball flies through Juventus' defence and out for a throw-in on the left.
  • 11'
    Traore ends a very nice attack by Juventus with some poor dribbling as Marco Rossi robs him off the ball on the right wing. The Arsenal loanee has not really managed to settle in the team and continues to disappoint.
  • 9'
    Matri shows great skill on the left wing with a delightful backheel nutmeg on Dainelli, but Mesto brought him down with a body check.
  • 7'
    Assist Luca Antonelli
  • 7'
    Own Goal Leonardo Bonucci
  • 7'
    GOAL! What a comical goal, indeed! Genoa take the lead! Bonucci puts it into his own net! Antonelli took a shot from outside the box and Bonucci put his foot in front of it and it rebounded past Storari and into the lower left corner.
  • 6'
    Genoa win a corner kick on the left after Floro Flores managed to outrun Bonucci, but the defender recovered and made a good clearance. Nothing came off that set-piece.
  • 5'
    Floro Flores handballs in the centre of the pitch, but escapes booking. It was more down to poor ball control than intent.
  • 3'
    PEPE! The Italy international flashes a poor header from inside the box, following a cross by Krasic. He really should have done better there.
  • 1'
