Commentary

That's all for our live coverage, thanks for following along. Goodbye!
Paulo Dybala scored a free-kick and a penalty on either side of half-time as the Bianconeri come from behind to hand Luigi Delneri a defeat in his first match in charge.
90' + 3' FULL-TIME: JUVENTUS 2-1 UDINESE.
90' + 2' Juventus enjoying possession as they run time off the clock, playing keep-away in the midfield third. Udinese are desperately scrambling to win it back, but even if they do, the odds are really stacked against them now.
90' There will be three minutes added on at the end of this match.
88' Time for one final push now from Udinese, who have to throw caution to the wind. They're sending everything into the penalty area from out wide, but so far there's been few deliveries of note for the likes of Zapata and Thereau to attack. It's now or never for them.
86' STAT: Udinese have lost 56 games against Juventus, more than against any other Serie A team (W12, D16).
84' YIKES! Far from pretty, but that will get the job done for Buffon, who just manages to awkwardly get a hand to Felipe's far post header to knock the ball behind for a corner. That was a nervy one for the hosts.
S. Sturaro
P. Dybala
82' A roar of applause greets Dybala's walk to the touchline as the striker, whose two goals have Juventus in position for the three points, is replaced by Stefano Sturaro for the final 10 minutes.
79' Udinese refuse to lay down here, however, and they're setting up something of a grandstand finish in Turin. They may just have something left in the tank after all, as Juventus still have plenty of work to do to see this one through.
77' A pair of throughballs, from Cuadrado and Hernanes, have just too much weight on them to send Dybala through on goal. The movement of the Argentine off the ball has proved difficult for Danilo to contain, especially as the visitors start to commit more bodies forward in search of an equaliser.
T. Heurtaux
J. Jankto
75' A final change for Udinese as Jankto is replaced by Thomas Heurtaux.
74' Good stuff from Thereau! Barzagli has had his number for much of the night, but the striker gets the better of this duel as he twists his way beyond him into space for a shot - one that Buffon manages to parry at the near post.
72' STAT: The last time these two sides played out a Serie A draw in Turin was back in March 1990 - since then there have been 17 Juventus wins and five for Udinese.
L. Bonucci
M. Benatia
70' Bonucci is indeed on here, with Benatia the one replaced.
68' Approaching the final 20 minutes now and Udinese will be shaking at the sight of Leonardo Bonucci appearing on the touchline. The defender, who wasn't expected to be available tonight, is up and ready to come on to help see this one out it looks like.
G. Higuaín
M. Mandžukić
66' Juventus make their first change of the evening as Gonzalo Higuain comes on to a thunderous applause, replacing Mandzukic.
Hernanes
Yellow Card
66' Barzagli gives possession away, putting Hernanes into a pickle, as he lunges into a challenge that sees him booked.
65' This is much more like the Juventus we have come to expect - the ones who have won five successive league titles. They've been firmly in control in this second half, and are inching closer to the third goal that would figure to put the game to bed.
63' STAT: Only Real Madrid (56) have fired more shots on target than Juventus (51) in the big five European Leagues this season.
61' SHOULD BE THREE! Sandro gets on the end of a splendid cross in from Dybala, but he bounces his header wide at the far post with Karnezis scrambling to get across!
S. Perica
Yellow Card
59' Perica has a small penalty shout, which is dismissed by the official. The substitute sprints back in frustration and slides in to a dangerous challenge on Dybala, before being issued a yellow card.
57' Juventus are very much in control here in the second half, commanding the bulk of the possession while keeping Udinese at arm's length. The visitors seem a bit discouraged with how the last 20 minutes have unfolded
S. Perica
R. De Paul
55' Stipe Perica enters the fray here, replacing De Paul. All hands on deck here for Udinese, who switch to a 4-3-3.
53' STAT: Six of Juventus’ 15 goals (40%) have arrived between 60’ and 75’ minutes of play, more than any other team in this period.
P. Dybala
Penalty Goal
51' FROM BEHIND, JUVENTUS LEAD! Dybala has his second, this one from the penalty spot, after De Paul was deemed to have fouled Sandro in the area!
50' Allegri has tinkered with his tactics a bit at the break and it looks now as though they have switched to three at the back, with Evra joining Barzagli and Benatia, with Lichtsteiner and Sandro on the flanks, pushing Cuadrado higher up the pitch.
48' Excellent start to this second half! Dybala makes a strong run and forces Karnezis into a save. Pressure stays on and Cuadrado sees a shot blocked from in close, before Udinese break the other way, with Zapata nearly playing Thereau through!
Ali Adnan
Samir
46' Ali Adnan replaces Samir at the start of this second half.
46' Here we go again!
Udinese enjoyed a terrific start to the match, one they carried through the first half hour, before Jantko gave them the opener they deserved. Falling behind seemed to spark Juventus, however, as a late push at the end of the first half resulted in the equaliser through Dybala - and that's where we stand.
Goals from Jantko and Dybala cancel each other out as we play through 45 minutes at the Juventus Stadium with nothing to separate the two sides.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: JUVENTUS 1-1 UDINESE.
M. Wagué
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Dybala is at the heart of everything good happening for Juventus. He draws another foul, this one on Wague, who picks up the first booking of the evening.
45' There will be one minute added on at the end of this first half.
P. Dybala
Goal
43' OUTSTANDING STRIKE! Parity restored in Turin as Dybala curls in an unstoppable effort from the free-kick, slotting it into the top corner! Plenty of anticipation in the build-up to that set-piece and it was well worth it in the end!
42' Unbelievably, the free-kick still has yet to be taken. Evra and Jantko go at it in the area, and the full-back gets physical with a shoulder-to-shoulder challenge in the wall, which sends the scorer flying to ground - the referee has to sort this before it can be taken.
40' A giveaway at the back allows Lichtsteiner to pounce and sprint into space, but he's not decisive enough in sending a cross, which doesn't please Mandzukic. Nonetheless, the pressure stays on and Dybala wins them a free-kick five yards outside the area.
38' Udinese have apparently taken to time wasting already, or at least that's what these fans think. A free-kick deep in their own end is lurked over by Karnezis, who takes his sweet time booting it up the pitch. They want nothing more than to see this lead into the break.
36' Juventus have upped the urgency since falling behind, going in search of an equaliser before the break. This has been arguably their best spell of the first half, but Udinese are holding out for now. It's going to be a fiery end to the first half here in Turin.
34' NEAR MISS! Lovely one-two on the edge of the area between Dybala and Cuadrado, with the former then picking out Lichtsteiner in space. The full-back has a clean look at goal, but his first-time effort is lashed into the side netting!
32' STAT: Juventus have lost only one of their last 69 home league games; it came against Udinese (W61 D7).
J. Jankto
Goal
30' UDINESE STUN TURIN WITH THE OPENING GOAL! Jantko, who missed moments early following the free-kick, makes amends seconds later with the goal Udinese deserve! The midfielder makes a delightful run, but his shot on the end of it isn't struck with much venom, but Buffon makes a real mess of it, failing to parry as he knocks it into the back of the net!
29' Benatia, who has been giving away free-kicks left, right and centre, concedes another one here in a very threatening position just to the right of the penalty area. De Paul stands over it as the visitors pack the bodies into the penalty area...
27' It remains perfectly poised at we approach the half-hour mark. It's still very much in the balance, with no side holding a discernible edge - contrary to what might have been expected coming into the match.
25' HE'S MISSED A SITTER! A ball floated over the top isn't dealt with properly by the Udinese defence, and it falls for Mandzukic. The striker has the goal at his mercy, but his off-balance poke is sent over the bar! He has to be scoring from there!
23' Udinese continue on the ascendency, and it's that width they've adopted in their approach play that's giving Juventus problems. There's plenty of space to be found behind the likes of Lichtsteiner and Evra, and they're managing to exploit it - though Barzagli and Benatia are covering a lot of ground to keep them out.
21' STAT: Udinese won their last game at Juventus Stadium, after four consecutive away defeats against Juventus in Serie A.
19' Mandzukic forces his way beyond Felipe, winning the host's first corner of the match. Hernanes gets on the end of the resulting delivery, but his header is sent straight into the waiting arms of Karnezis at the near post.
17' Headed wide! Better from the hosts, that. Cuadrado gets into an advanced position on the right, halts his run and bends in a good diagonal ball, picking out Mandzukic, but the striker guides his header just wide of the far post.
15' Thereau puts in some determined running, but Barzagli does very well in a vulnerable position to deny him passage through and force it out for a corner. The subsequent delivery is an inviting one, played in towards the far post, but Buffon shows his class, navigating through a mess of bodies to punch clear.
13' Juventus have been rather pedestrian in possession thus far, struggling to find any sort of rhythm. There's not enough of a link between forward and defence, with Lemina and Hernanes both lying deeper. One of them needs to take up a position higher up the pitch.
11' A third set-piece in a threatening position for the visitors, this one free-kick in a good area for a shot, just under 25 yards from goal. De Paul takes, but nothing comes of it. Udinese, for as well as they have started, need to start carving out some scoring chances to make this spell count.
9' Udinese have some good width about them going forward. They're looking motivated to prove themselves to their new coach, with the two week international break giving them time to get the new system down - and they have Juventus on their heels a bit early on here.
7' STAT: Udinese have had the lowest possession rate in this Serie A (37 per cent).
5' There's an exciting tempo early on here in Turin, with both sides going back and forth exchanging attacks. Udinese are attempting to rebrand themselves and this is a good start from them under Delneri.
3' Almost a perfect start! Dybala takes matters into his own hands, shifting around in the area before firing a shot through the legs of the defender. It looks like Karnezis is beaten at his near post, but the shot crashes into the side netting!
1' AND WE'RE OFF! Juventus get us underway, attacking left to right, in their black and white stripes, with Udinese in blue.
Luigi Delneri has already stamped his name on the team, making five changes in his first game in charge. Molla Wague, Samir, Jakub Jankto, Seko Fofana and Cyril Thereau come into the team at the expense of Thomas Heurtaux, Ali Adnan, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Panagiotis Kone and Stipe Perica.
Mario Lemina and Mario Mandzukic also come into the team, replacing Miralem Pjanic and Gonzalo Higuain, who only just returned from South America. Sami Khedira is the one to give way for the extra full-back, with Alex Sandro staying in a more attacking role on the flank.
Allegri makes five changes to the Juventus side, while being forced to revert to a more standard four-man back line with Leonardo Bonucci (personal) and Giorgio Chiellini (injury) unavailable. Mehdi Benatia comes in to partner Andrea Barzagli, while Patrice Evra and Stephan Lichtsteiner come in at full-back.
SUBS: Angella, Armero, Penaranda, Perica, Matos, Scuffet, Perisan, Adnan, Heurtaux, Evangelista, Balic.
UDINESE (4-3-1-2): Karnezis; Wague, Danilo, Felipe, Samir; Jankto, Kums, Fofana; De Paul; Zapata, Thereau.
SUBS: Pjanic, Khedira, Marchisio, Higuain, Mattiello, Bonucci, Neto, Sturaro, Audero, Kean.
JUVENTUS (4-4-2): Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Benatia, Evra; Cuadrado, Hernanes, Lemina, Sandro; Mandzukic, Dybala.
