Commentary

Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game. Until next time, goodbye!
Spezia host Milan next, while Juventus face Sampdoria at home.
There goes the full-time whistle! Juventus took the lead through Kean in the first half but were pegged back as Gyasi and Antiste struck either side of the break to put Spezia in front. However, Allegri's men produced a memorable comeback as Chiesa and then De Ligt found the net to hand Juventus their first Serie A win of the season. It finishes 3-2 to Juventus!
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: SPEZIA 2-3 JUVENTUS
M'Bala Nzola
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Nzola follows Morata into the book for the same offence - accidentally elbowing De Ligt in the face in his case.
Morata
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Morata is booked as he inadvertently catches Nikolaou in the face with his arm as he looked to spin away.
90' Bernardeschi has been down for a couple of minutes after sustaining a head injury as Amian headed wide. His head is bandaged and it seems as though he will be able to carry on.
88' CHANCE! Gyasi forces a corner as his low strike is deflected behind, and the resulting cross is met unopposed by Amian in the middle, but he can only skew his header well wide!
E. Salcedo
G. Maggiore
85' Motta makes a late change, bringing Maggiore off for Salcedo as he chases an equalising goal.
D. Nikolaou
Yellow Card
85' Nikolaou wrestles Kulusevski to the ground as the Juventus substitute looked to lead a counter-attack down the right and the Spezia defender is booked as a result.
D. Kulusevski
F. Chiesa
84' Chiesa is applauded by the away fans as Allegri brings him off, with Kulusevski coming on in his place out wide.
82' Spezia are throwing men forward now and Juventus seem content to sit back and see the game out. They're certainly not chasing a fourth goal.
80' The ball is laid back to Maggiore on the edge of the box and the attacking midfielder hits it first-time, but he gets underneath it and blazes over the bar.
J. Sala
M. Bourabia
77' Motta's final change of the three sees Bourabia go off for Sala in the centre of midfield.
M'Bala Nzola
J. Antiste
77' Antiste, scorer of Spezia's second goal, is the next to go off, with Nzola taking his place.
R. Manaj
D. Verde
77' Motta makes a triple-substitution as he looks to salvage something from the contest. Verde is the first man to go off, with Manaj replacing him.
74' Spezia must now chase the game and Juventus have dropped back, looking to see this one out with caution.
L. Bonucci
Assist
72' Assist Leonardo Bonucci
M. de Ligt
Goal
72' GOAL!!! DE LIGT PUTS JUVENTUS BACK IN FRONT!!! Dybala's left-wing corner is flicked on by Alex Sandro and Nikolaou can't clear his lines, with the ball falling for De Ligt in the box, who lashes into the bottom-right corner! It's 3-2 to Juventus!
69' OVER! The ball pops up for Chiesa on the edge of the box and the winger goes for a sensational, dipping half-volley, but he fires it just over the bar!
F. Bernardeschi
A. Rabiot
67' Allegri looks to capitalise on the momentum generated by that equaliser and replaces Rabiot with Bernardeschi out wide.
Morata
Assist
66' Morata will claim the assist, but he didn't know much about it as the ball deflected off his right boot and into the path of Chiesa.
F. Chiesa
Goal
66' GOAL!!! CHIESA LEVELS THE SCORES!!! Verde gives the ball away cheaply trying to dribble out of the corner and Chiesa robs him before driving into the box and finding Morata. The striker is crowded out but the ball breaks for Chiesa, who nutmegs Hristov and squeezes in behind before firing the ball past Zoet! It's 2-2 now!
65' BLOCK! Bastoni drills a low cross into the box from the left and it finds its way through to Antiste, but his first effort is blocked and his second is cleared off the line by Locatelli!
62' OVER! Dybala dinks the ball into the middle following a corner and Morata heads it back across goal for Bonucci, but the centre-back can only nod over from close range!
61' SAVE! Dybala picks the ball up on the edge of the box and strikes a swerving effort towards the top-left corner, but Zoet watches it all the way and makes a fine, diving save!
Morata
M. Kean
59' Allegri makes his third change, replacing his goalscorer, Kean, with Morata up front as he looks to get his side back in front.
56' OVER! Chiesa is fed down the right and he cuts it back for the late run of McKennie to the edge of the box, but the midfielder's first-time effort is over the bar! He really should have hit the target there.
54' SAVE! Dybala whips in a terrific cross from the left that Kean meets in the middle, but Zoet is alert and tips the striker's firm header over the bar!
51' Juventus look to hit back and it's another long-range effort as Chiesa thumps the ball into the body of a Spezia defender and behind for a corner.
G. Maggiore
Assist
49' Maggiore spotted the run of Antiste into the gaping expanse of space in behind and played the ball early over the top for the striker to chase.
J. Antiste
Goal
49' GOAL!!! ANTISTE PUTS SPEZIA AHEAD!!! Maggiore pumps it into the left channel as Juventus are caught upfield and Antiste races into the box before cutting inside and then lashing a low effort into the bottom-left corner via a slight deflection! It's 2-1 to Spezia!
46' We're back underway for the second half!
M. Locatelli
R. Bentancur
46' Allegri's second change comes in midfield, with Bentancur going off for summer signing Locatelli.
Alex Sandro
M. De Sciglio
46' Allegri makes two changes at the break as he looks for a better performance in the second half. De Sciglio is the first to be withdrawn, with Alex Sandro replacing him at left-back.
Juventus had more possession and took plenty of shots in that half, but they did not look as convincing as those stats would suggest. Dybala took to shooting from distance as half-time approached and Juventus rarely carved their opponents open. Spezia, meanwhile, have given a decent account of themselves and have not shown their illustrious opponents too much respect.
There goes the half-time whistle! Juventus went in front in the 28th minute as Kean rifled a low shot into the bottom-left corner from Rabiot's knockdown, but their lead lasted just five minutes as Gyasi cut in from the left before lashing a dipping strike over Szczesny and into the top-right corner. It's 1-1 at the break.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: SPEZIA 1-1 JUVENTUS
45' Dybala seems to be shooting on sight now and takes on another effort from range, but the strike lacks the power to truly test Zoet and the goalkeeper holds on.
43' Dybala takes his third shot in three minutes as it's cut back to him in the box from the left, but he gets right underneath the ball and blazes it high into the stands.
42' SAVE! Dybala drives to the edge of the box and lashes a fierce strike high towards the target, but Zoet is there to tip it over the bar!
41' SAVE! Dybala stands over a free-kick to the left of goal and lashes a dipping strike towards the goalkeeper's side, but Zoet is well-positioned and holds the effort confidently.
39' Allegri is attempting to calm his players down from the sidelines. Ever since Gyasi's goal, Juventus have seemed to lose their composure.
37' Spezia are in the ascendancy now as the momentum has swung, with the hosts throwing men forward and forcing Juventus to retreat and deal with the threat.
35' Juventus looked to be in the perfect position to take control of the game after going ahead, but the game has opened up as they are forced to react to Spezia's equaliser.
E. Gyasi
Goal
33' GOAL!!! GYASI EQUALISES FOR SPEZIA!!! It's a superb goal from Gyasi, who cuts into the box from the left and lashes a fierce, dipping effort across goal that flies over Szczesny and dips into the top-right corner! It's 1-1 now!
30' Juventus win two corners in succession, buoyed by Kean's goal, but they can't add to their tally from the set-pieces.
A. Rabiot
Assist
28' Rabiot drifted into a central area and towered above his man to meet Bonucci's pass from deep, knocking it down for Kean, who supplied an emphatic finish.
M. Kean
Goal
28' GOAL!!! KEAN FIRES JUVENTUS IN FRONT!!! Bonucci knocks the ball long for Rabiot, who nods down to Kean on the edge of the box. The striker shifts the ball onto his right foot, pauses, and shifts it just a fraction more before striking a low effort across the goalkeeper and in off the base of the left post! It's 1-0 to Juventus!
26' Juventus enjoy a sustained spell of possession that features plenty of short passes and they work it well into the box, but the final ball from Kean just goes astray and Zoet collects it.
24' Kean switches the play to the left with a sweeping diagonal and it's delivered into the middle for McKennie, but the midfielder swings for the ball and misses entirely!
21' The home fans are frustrated again as they feel Bastoni was fouled by Chiesa, but nothing is given once again. Spezia win it back, however, and they do earn a free-kick as Rabiot trips Maggiore.
19' Juventus win a corner as they continue to search for openings, but the set-piece is wasted as De Ligt is penalised for a foul on Hristov.
17' Juventus are back on the ball and looking to dictate the game, but they're yet to carve Spezia apart. The hosts have been forced back into their third, though.
15' OVER! Chiesa swings a corner into the mix and Bonucci's initial header is blocked. It falls to De Ligt, however, who shoots on the swivel from 10 yards out, but the defender can only fire over the bar!
13' A neat passage of Spezia play breaks down on the edge of the box and Juventus counter through Kean, but Hristov does well to hold him up and allow Zoet to come off his line and smother the ball.
11' Spezia manage to get their foot on the ball after a few minutes of Juventus pressure and are stroking it around confidently.
9' Rabiot barrels his way down the left and fires the ball towards the near post. It's neither cross nor shot, however, and Zoet intervenes to hold on.
7' WIDE! Chiesa manages to work a yard on the right this time and fizzes a low ball into Kean, who tries to guide his effort inside the near post with his first touch, but Hristov deflects it past the post!
6' The home fans are furious as Bonucci slides in forcefully on Antiste as Spezia looked to break down their left, but nothing is given.
5' Gyasi breathes a sigh of relief as he inadvertently plays the ball straight to Chiesa just outside the box and the winger looks to burst towards the byline, but Nikolaou prods it behind for a corner.
2' Juventus don't start convincingly as Spezia swarm forward early on and a low ball is delivered from the right towards Gyasi in the box, but he somehow fails to make contact with it and are forced to settle for a corner.
1' We're underway in La Spezia!
Juventus won both of their Serie A meetings against Spezia last term, scoring at least three goals in each: 4-1 away, 3-0 at home.
Spezia have lost two of their last four home Serie A games (W1 D1), having avoided defeat in their previous six before this run (W3 D3).
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, however, makes sweeping changes after the 1-1 draw with Milan on Sunday. Alex Sandro, Locatelli, Cuadrado and Morata are dropped to the bench, while Giorgio Chiellini misses out altogether. De Ligt, De Sciglio, McKennie, Chiesa and Kean all come into the side.
Spezia boss Thiago Motta makes two changes to the team that beat Venezia 2-1 last time out. Bourabia keeps his place in midfield after scoring the winning goal deep into stoppage time last weekend, with Sala dropping to the bench. Defender Martin Erlic was forced off with an injury in that game and replaced by Hristov, who keeps his spot and starts this evening.
Juventus substitutes: Mattia Perin, Juan Cuadrado, Alex Sandro, Carlo Pinsoglio, Aaron Ramsey, Dejan Kulusevski, Luca Pellegrini, Alvaro Morata, Manuel Locatelli, Federico Bernardeschi, Daniele Rugani.
Juventus (4-4-2): Wojciech Szczesny; Danilo, Matthijs de Ligt, Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia De Sciglio; Federico Chiesa, Rodrigo Bentancur, Weston McKennie, Adrien Rabiot; Paulo Dybala, Moise Kean.
Spezia substitutes: Ivan Provedel, Petar Zovko, Eddie Salcedo, Jakub Kiwior, M'Bala Nzola, David Strelec, Suf Podgoreanu, Rey Manaj, Nicolo Bertola, Jacopo Sala.
Spezia (4-2-3-1): Jeroen Zoet; Kelvin Amian, Petko Hristov, Dimitris Nikolaou, Simone Bastoni; Salvador Ferrer, Mehdi Bourabia; Daniele Verde, Giulio Maggiore, Emmanuel Gyasi; Janis Antiste.
Struggling Juventus come into this game in the relegation zone and still searching for their first league win of the season. To do so, they must overcome a Spezia side that collected their first victory of the campaign on Sunday, beating newly-promoted Venezia.
