Live Commentary

  • Juventus have run out easy winners here 0-4 and the score did not flatter their performance. An outstanding first half showing from Milos Krasic with two assists put Juve in the comfort zone. Udinese remain stuck to the foot of the table with no points; It could be a long season for Di Natale and his men. Thanks for joining us today, and tune in for Sampdoria v Napoli tonight at 20:45 CET
  • 90' + 2'
    Iaquinta has been found in a country mile of space in the middle of the pitch, he closes in on goal...GREAT SAVE HANDANOVIC!The keeper once again saves his team, despite the scoreline not showing his efforts. Full time!
  • 90'
    Last minute here and Juventus continue to come forward. Udinese fans are leaving unsuprisingly, as two minutes of stoppage time has been held up on the fourth officials board.
  • 86'
    Del Neri is still on his feet shouting at Juve when they lose concentration. You can see what this victory means to the coach. Quagliarella receives a nice ball from Sissoko just to the right of goal but the forward fails to beat the near post defender with his pull back.
  • 83'
    Iaquinta turns himself inside out in the box when Juventus had options in the middle of the area waiting to pounce. The forward still trying to un-twist himself from his spinning goal earlier.
  • 81'
    Udinese are still coming forward as the captain leads by example. Di Natale finds some space in the inside channel and Storari is forced to turn his near post shot out for a corner....shock, horror, another poor delivery.
  • 79'
    Iaquinta goes to ground and the Udinese players are furious! The forward has escaped a second booking in the confusion. Play continues...
  • 77'
    Assist Claudio Marchisio
  • 77'
    Yellow Card Vincenzo Iaquinta
  • 77'
    Goal Vincenzo Iaquinta
  • 76'
    Super strike!!!Gooaaallll IAQUINTA! The big forward is fed across the edge of the area and he spins, firing the ball into the bottom corner. This is all too easy for the visitors. Iaquinta is booked for celebrations I presume.
  • 76'
    SubstitutionMarco Motta Nicola Legrottaglie
  • 74'
    Floro Flores looks to squeeze inbetween the centre backs as Udine continue to search for a route into the match but their play is predictable and uneffective.
  • 72'
    Di Natale tries to find Asamoah with a chip in behind Marco Motta but the Udinese man fouls Motta. The defender is left wincing in agony but it looks like cramp. Alberto Aquiliani is warming up for the visitors.
  • 71'
    SubstitutionFelipe Melo M. Sissoko
  • 69'
    SubstitutionAlexis Sánchez Almen Abdi
  • 68'
    Sanchez has now come off for Udinese for Alem Abdi, a strange decision as the winger as been the only man offering runs in behind the Juve back line. Felip Melo has also been replaced, Juventus bringing on Mohamed Sissoko.
  • 66'
    SubstitutionGiovanni Pasquale Pablo Armero
  • 65'
    Strong running from Pepe surges Juve forward. The winger plays a nice one-two with Quagliarella and beats the last man but sails his early shot high and wide. Udinese remove Pasquale to add another forward.
  • 62'
    Pepe's cross from the left finds Quagliarella at the far post but the striker volleys into the floor and wide. Marchisio tests Handanovic in the Udinese goal from 25 yards but it's simple for the keeper.
  • 60'
    Quagliarella goes to ground in the opposition half and wins a free-kick for Juventus. They are not taking any risks this half and just look to retain the ball. Iaquinta gets round the full back but his second touch allows Handanovic to come and claim the ball from his feet.
  • 57'
    Juventus look happy to sit off Udinese and let them run the play. A low through ball for Di Natale is just too strong and Juve eventually pump the ball upfield.
  • 56'
    Pepe takes Juventus' seventh corner of the game from the right. Another poor delivery allows Udinese to come forward once more.
  • 54'
    Udinese over-hit another free-kick from the right, they need to make the most of what chances they get. Juventus have been unable to settle on the ball so far this half.
  • 52'
    SubstitutionAlessandro Del Piero Vincenzo Iaquinta
  • 51'
    Sanchez! Poor effort! Another ball over the top catches Juve out at the back far too easily again but the winger can't get any direction on his shot and Storari saves. Juventus make a substitution, Del Piero is making way for Iaquinta.
  • 48'
    Udinese waste a free-kick down the right but they are chasing the ball down harder all over the pitch in the opening minutes of this half. Some harsh words no doubt at half time.
  • 46'
    The teams are back out and we are underway here. Lets hope the second half has as much action as the first. Udinese need to get an early goal to have anyway back here. Juventus had over sixty percent of the possession in the first half, the hosts need the improve their accuracy.
  • 46'
    SubstitutionM. Isla Giampiero Pinzi
  • 45'
    Krasic has caused mayhem down the right here for Udinese and now it would seem the mountain to climb is too much. 3-0 here at half time and very much deserved. Whatever coach Del Neri said before the game has certainly worked....Udinese will be wondering what if Chiellini had been penalised for his trip on Sanchez at the beginning of the half.
  • 43'
    Assist Alessandro Del Piero
  • 43'
    Goal Claudio Marchisio
  • 42'
    Juve break quickly once more looking to overload the box!....GOAALL!!! That link up again. Krasic gets down the right and has all the time to pick out a number of white shirts in the box and it's Marchisio who volleys home in style!
  • 41'
    Yellow Card Felipe Melo
  • 39'
    Floro Flores gets up highest in the box for the Zebrette but his effort is tame. Felipe Melo commits an untidy foul in the middle of the park as Juve clear the danger. The Brazilian has been booked and if he isn't quiet the referee may show him another colour of card here.
  • 37'
    Juventus aren't slowing the tempo down here as former Udinese winger Pepe tries to get down the left, but concedes an unnecessary free-kick in the corner. The match is lacking the excitement of the early exchanges, which is lucky for anyone in the ground with a back problem, this has been a great game.
  • 35'
    Yellow Card Claudio Marchisio
  • 34'
    Claudio Marchisio is the first to go into the ref's book. The midfielder catching Sanchez as Udinese broke, cynical foul but required for Juve, it could have been worse.
  • 31'
    Quagliarella thought he is through on goal for Juve but he fouled Coda as the ball bounced over the Zebrette's defender.
  • 29'
    The Udinese captain Di Natale finally wakes up his team with a jinking run into the left side of the Old Lady's area but his shot hits the side netting. Better spell now for Udinese.
  • 29'
    Yellow Card Simone Pepe
  • 26'
    Krasic again!!!What are Udinese doing. The Serb whips another delicious ball in and Marchisio almost gets there, corner. It is cleared, Del Piero tries again, BONUCCI!!!...WHAT A SAVE!Handanovic tips the defender's header on to the bar. This is some game.
  • 24'
    Assist Milos Krasic
  • 24'
    Goal Fabio Quagliarella
  • 23'
    Krasic and Juentus are unstoppable! The Serbian winger is left in acres of space and finds Quagliarella at the near post with a low cross. The Italian international beautifully flicks the ball into the far corner. 0-2 Juventus and it looks like it will only get worse for the hosts.
  • 23'
  • 20'
    Wonderful link up play from Krasic and Del Piero allow the Juve skipper time to tee up a shot on the edge of the area. Handanovic saves! The keeper watched the bounce well, corner.
  • 18'
    Own Goal Andrea Coda
  • 18'
    Krasic won a free-kick on the right for Juve. The ball was whipped in to a perfrct area for the keeper but Handanovic comes and gets nowhere. The richochet at the back post falls kindly for Bonucci who stabs home for the lead, 0-1 Juventus!

    Goal!!!Bonucci has scored for Juventus!!!!
  • 17'
    End to end stuff as Udine look to hit the visitors with really direct passing. Watching the replay of Sanchez, he may have just been outside the box when contact was made but Chiellini is fortunate not to be sent off as the last man.
  • 15'
    Quarter of an hour gone in and Juventus look the most likely to score but Udinese fire what looks to be a nothing pass high in the air...Sanchez is there!The Chilean is bundled to the floor as Juventus track back, PENALTY!??....The referee waves play on.
  • 13'
    Udinese are lacking support up top when they look to hit quickly on the counter. Floro Flores knocking a harmless pass into space. The passing from both teams now is really poor, simple mistakes.
  • 10'
    Del Piero is incorrectly flagged for offside as Juventus look to go over the top. Alexei Sanchez goes straight down the other end gets a shot away from the right but it is easily covered by Marco Storari.
  • 9'
    Grygera wins a free-kick down the left 35 yards from goal for Juventus all in white today. Del Piero's ball in is disappointing failing to beat the first man.
  • 7'
    Bonucci shows great composure, as he is left isolated at the back with Di Natale. Juventus look really up for todays game.
  • 6'
    Krasic again is left in too much space on the edge of the box for the Bianconeri, but he lofts his shot well over the bar.
  • 4'
    Milos Krasic breaks down the right for Juventus, the talented winger hits a cross which causes all sorts of problems and is tipped over the bar by Samir Handanovic. Del Piero's corner comes to nothing.
  • 2'
    Udinese start on the front foot winning an early free-kick. Juventus manage to clear and Di Natale is caught offside as they try to hit their visitors on the break.
  • Welcome to the Stadio Fruili for this vital fixture between bottom club Udinese and Juventus. Both have yet to record a victory this Serie A campaign in the two games thus far, and today they will be desperate to kick start their seasons. Team line-ups to follow....
