    • 3'
      Good challenge from Evra! Mounier tries to make a diagonal run in behind the Juve back three, but his compatriot tracks him and then slides in to ensure that Bologna don't have an early opportunity to test Buffon. The away side are pressing very high from the off.
    • 4'
      Juve break forward at pace, with Dybala able to dribble his way down the right and find Cuadrado in a central area! The ex-Fiorentina wide man can't take the ball in his stride, however, with Mirante able to gobble up the poorly weighted pass. Morata goes on a driving run moments later, but the form

      GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MOUNIER GIVES THE AWAY SIDE THE LEAD! Buffon is unable to keep his effort out, with the ball bobbling over the line! The Frenchman gets in behind Chiellini, is picked out by a lofted pass, and slots a volleyed attempt straight through the Juve goalkeeper! Bologna lead 1-0!
    • 7'
      Dybala whips in a free-kick delivery, but it is easily cleared by the away side, who have had some good success early on from merely diagonal balls. Juve need to buck their ideas up, with their fans desperately urging the Biaconeri to up their game this evening.
    • 9'
      Bologna are pressing high and being very combative, preying on any mistakes from the hosts. Dybala slips Morata in behind the back four, with the Spaniard racing into the penalty area, but the ex-Real Madrid man can only blast an effort high and wide of the target! Wasted chance.
    • 11'
      Evra rises well in the opposition penalty area, in an attempt to meet a free-kick delivery, but the Frenchman can't get enough contact on the ball to test Mirante. Mounier has been a thrown in the Bianconeri's side thus far, with his pace and determination proving to be of real annoyance to the Juve
    • 13'
      Allegri's men are enjoying the lion's share of possession, but it isn't translating into any big chances. Cuadrado releases Barzagli down the right, with the ex-Palermo defender angling in the perfect cross, but nobody in black and white stripes makes the run required to tap home a simple finish at

      Bonucci tries to release Dybala with a lofted through ball, but the Argentina international is denied by a half clearance.

    • 17'
      Cuadrado swing a cross in from deep on the right-hand side, but Evra sees a back-post volley blocked, before a shot from Pogba is charged down! The former Frenchman lands awkwardly, however, clashing with Ferrari in the process. Both players require some treatment from their respective physios.
    • 19'
      Chiellini releases Evra down the left, who shifts possession into Pogba. The ex-Man United midfielder sprints into the box, before seeing a shot blocked! The rebound falls back out to the aforementioned Italy international, who hammers a long-range attempt into the crowd!
    • 21'
      Bologna may have only had two opportunities, but they still find themselves ahead early on in Turin. The visitors have spent the majority of this clash camped deep in their own half, but Dybala and Morata are yet to combine to particularly dangerous effect.
    • 23'
      Juve are trying to work overloads on either flank, but Evra and Cuadrado service has been largely poor thus far. Dybala is given a chance to try and cause some problems, but Mirante ends up with the ball within his grasp. Bologna are merely waiting for the hosts to make mistakes or whip in poor cros
    • 25'
      Yet again, Cuadrado is released down the right, but the Colombian runs into trouble and can't win a free kick for his side. The home fans might just be getting a little bit restless now, but it appears that the floodgates might open once Juve net once. Bologna are essentially besieged.
    • 27'
      Evra and Cuadrado continue to be involved constantly, with both Dybala and Morata praying for some good service. The Frenchman whips in yet another cross, but Masina heads this one away with ease. It has all been very easy for the Bologna back four thus far. Everything is occurring in front of them.
    • 29'
      Destro and Brienza manage to combine, after a long ball was pumped forward. Mounier tries to curl a cross in from the right, but Bonucci clears. Rossi's side enjoy a rare spell of possession, with the movement of their front three causing all kinds of issues. Buffon is forced to smother a teasing ne
    • 31'
      Even the most optimistic of Bologna fans wouldn't have expected their side to be ahead after half an hour, with Juventus' shocking domestic start to the season looking set to continue. While the Bianconeri have had plenty of control in this contest, they have created very little.

      GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MORATA MAKES IT 1-1! Khedira marauds his way down the right flank, before lifting a well-weighted cross into the box! The Spaniard merely has to steer home a header from eight yards out, leaving Mirante with absolutely no chance!
    • 35'
      Morata and Dybala combine, with the ex-Palermo striker nonsensically penalised for doing nothing to Gastaldello. The Bologna defender misses his challenge, before attempting to grab at the shirt of his opponent, with the Argentine standing strong. The home fans break out into a chorus of shrill whis
    • 37'
      Mirante has to be quick off his line to deny a run from Cuadrado, with the former Chelsea wide man chasing an optimistic through ball. Less than 10 minutes remain in the first half, with Juve desperately chasing a second goal. The aforementioned Colombian whips a cross in from the right, but Morata
    • 39'
      Mounier is nearly found by a back pass from Chiellini, but Buffon is alert to the danger and hoofs away from the goalscorer. Moments later, Morata is fed in behind enemy lines, but the Spain international is denied by the linesman's flag for offside.

    • 43'
      Oikonomou and Mirante combine to deny Cuadrado, with the Colombian's cut back from the byline causing plenty of problems! Morata was lurking on the edge of the six-yard box, but the two Bologna men combine to ensure that the visitors stay on level terms heading into the break.
    • 45'
      Hernanes tries his luck from range, but the Brazil international's attempt trickles into Mirante's grasp. Dybala causes problems on the edge of the away side's box once again, with Mounier picking up a yellow card for diving into a terrible tackle on the Juve striker. He has been in the wars thus fa
    • 46'
      We are back underway in the second half in Turin! Juve have to keep pressing forward for a result, with anything less than a win set to be seen as nothing less than a veritable failure.
    • 47'
      Big chance for Morata! Cuadrado drives to the right byline and commits Mirante to his near post! The Colombia international cuts back an unselfish ball, with the Spaniard curling a terrible attempt beyond the left-hand post from merely eight yards out! Awful from the Juve goalscorer.

    • 48'
      Gastaldello is replaced for the away side, with the defender seemingly unable to shake off some kind of injury that was bothering him a little before the interval. Bologna will now have to keep Juventus out without their captain leading their back line.
    • 50'
      A. Masina is cautioned by the referee.
    • 50'
      Juve are controlling possession once again, with Cuadrado causing all kinds of problems for the hosts. Destro tries to slide a pass through to Brienza, as Bologna tried to counter at pace, but Chiellini merely steps up to intercept.
    • 51'
      PENALTY FOR JUVE! Morata goes down, claiming a tug from Ferrari, with the referee pointing to the spot! It looks to be a fairly harsh decision, but the Bologna defender should really keep his hands to himself!
    • 52'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! DYBALA CONVERTS THE PENALTY! The Argentine waits for Mirante to go the wrong way, before slotting a neat finish just inside the left-hand post! Juve are ahead and the visitors now have a huge task ahead of them.
    • 54'
      Brienza clips a free-kick delivery in towards the back post, but Ferrari is only able to pressure his man into conceding a corner. A good cross zips between plenty of traffic, but nobody in the red and blue of Bologna can get any kind of contact on the ball.
    • 56'
      E. Pulgar is yellow-carded.
    • 56'
      Mounier tries to control a diagonal pass, but Chiellini steps in ahead of the Frenchman. The Juve defender juggles the ball over his opponent's head, before driving into midfield and earning a free kick for the Bianconeri. Allegri's choice to return to using a 3-5-2 has given the hosts much more con
    • 58'
      Good stop from Mirante! Morata gets the ball on the edge of the box, before changing direction with a neat turn. The goalscorer unleashes a left-footed strike, which the goalkeeper is forced to tip over for a corner! The resulting set piece comes to nothing for the Old Lady.
    • 60'
      Chiellini climbs over Destro to win a brilliant header, with the ex-Roma forward unable to find the space required to wriggle away from his pursuers. Cuadrado switches play out to the left-hand side, but Mounier manages to prevent Evra from making tracks down his flank.
    • 62'
      Juve are only really looking dangerous when Cuadrado gets on the ball, with the ex-Fiorentina man proving key to unlocking this stubborn and resilient Bologna back four. Hernanes lets fly from around 25 yards, but the former Inter midfielder can only drag a low drive well wide of the right post!

    • 65'
      Bologna now need to find two goals in less than half an hour, if the visitors are to have any hope of snatching a share of the spoils. Lemina is warming up for the hosts, with Allegri perhaps now thinking of resting some of his more hard-working midfielders.

      Hernanes is done for the day. M. Lemina is his replacement.
    • 67'
      Hernanes takes his leave for the hosts, with young midfielder Lemina injected into the fray. The experienced Brazilian always was offering good angles to receive the ball, but hasn't got the legs to last 90 high-tempo minutes. The Bianconeri are now in cruise control.
    • 69'
      Dybala and Morata denied! The former sees a near-post strike saved in unorthodox fashion by Mirante, before the latter blasts the rebound goalwards! A sliding block denies the Spaniard, who could have easily racked up a hat trick this evening. Instead, he has a goal, an assist and won Dybala's penal

      E. Pulgar is done for the day. M. Brighi is his replacement.
    • 71'
      Rossi is forced to make another change, with Brighi coming into the game for the cautioned Pulgar. A few bookings for the visitors have ensured that their midfielders haven't been able to be as combative this side of half time. Destro is picked out making a run in behind Barzagli, but is caught offs
    • 73'
      Pogba drives through the heart of the visitors' midfield, before attempting to find an onrushing Cuadrado with a cheeky back-heel. Unfortunately for the latter, Oikonomou makes a timely interception. Only a quarter of an hour remains for Bologna to see out, who probably want the final whistle now.
    • 75'
      Morata lifts a pass into the path of Pogba, but the Frenchman falls while trying to stretch and make contact with the ball. The aforementioned Spaniard takes his leave at the next break in play with Zaza coming into the game. A goal for the ex-Sassuolo striker would do wonders for his confidence.

    • 76'
      F. Brienza is replaced with F. Falco.
    • 77'
      Zaza uses his strength to shove Ferrari off the ball, with the striker then attempting to link up with Dybala. The Argentine runs into traffic and loses possession, but Juve have enough black and white shirts posted within their opponent's half to take control of a lot of second balls.
    • 79'
      Zaza breaks down the left, before sliding a pass inside to Cuadrado! The latter tries to play a pass out to an overlapping teammate, but Brighi makes a timely interception. Bologna just haven't been able to compete during this second half, with Morata's equaliser proving to be a huge turning point i
    • 81'
      We're into the final 10 minutes in Turin, with Juve retaining the ball and stroking it around patiently. Evra tries to lay a pass down the line for Zaza, but Ferrari makes a clearance under heavy pressure.
    • 83'
      M. Lemina receives a yellow card.
    • 83'
      Mounier manages to break forward and look to start a counter, with Lemina giving chase. The Frenchman chops in behind and gets the wrong side of his player, meaning that the Gabonese substitute cynically drags the Bologna goalscorer down. An easy yellow card for the referee to give.
    • 85'
      Five minutes are left on the clock, with Bologna crying out for the final whistle. The visitors have been second-best throughout, with any chance of an upset eliminated by the psychological blow of conceding an equaliser. Rossi's men's siege mentality was broken a long time ago.
    • 87'
      Bologna aren't willing to press too much, with Juve happy to just slow the tempo down and wander their way upfield. Dybala turns and drives through the heart of the visitors' midfield, but Zaza is on a totally different wavelength to the Argentine and makes the wrong run based on his teammate's pass
    • 89'
      Khedira holds off his man, before stabbing a pass out wide of the left-hand side. The Germany international has been excellent this evening, with his first Juve goal capping a solid performance. The Bianconeri are sauntering to a much-needed three points.

    • 45'
      A. Mounier is cautioned by the referee.
    • 90'
      We're into the first of three minutes of stoppage time.
