  1. GOODBYE

    Juventus 1-0 Roma

    Well, thanks for tuning in. It was a typical tense top-of-the-table clash until the final 10 minutes. Hard to see anything but another Scudetto for Juventus after their 25th consecutive home win. That is the form of champions.

    Hopefully we'll see you for some more European action soon.

    Arrivederci.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Juventus 1-0 Roma

    And that is it. The referee blows the final whistle. Roma huffed and puffed in the second half but were unable to blow the Juventus house down. The Grand Old Lady's legs might have creaked in the last five minutes but she was still standing at the end to claim all three points.

    Juventus now seven points clear of Roma at the top of the table. Overhauling that will take some doing.

    Gonzalo Higuain's night is done and he is given an ovation by the Juventus fans. Argentine compatriot Paulo Dybala is his replacement, and shortly after coming on he attempts a long-range effort which keeps Wojciech Szczesny on his toes.

    Shortly after Kostas Manolas limps out clutching his hamstring and Bruno Peres comes on in his place.

    Roma dangerous again from a set-piece. A teasing ball misses everyone and Kostas Manolas pops up the back post, but he's not able to react quick enough and fails to get enough on the header. The visitors are having a right old go now.

  10. CLOSE!

    Juventus 1-0 Roma

    Roma's best chance of goal looks to be from a set-piece and a corner drops in the box for Antonio Rudiger. There are too many bodies in the way and Juventus are able to boot the ball away. 

    Moments later, Mohamed Salah tees up Diego Perotti but the latter scuffs his shot and veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is able to comfortably save.

    A bold move by Luciano Spalletti who chucks on another forward in the shape of Stephan El Shaarawy. Daniele De Rossi the man to make way.

    It's nip and tuck in the second half. Federico Fazio gets away with one after appearing to clip Mario Mandzukic in the box. Anywhere else on the pitch and that would surely have a free-kick.

    The Croatian striker can hardly believe nothing is given, and has a mini sitdown protest while complaining to the referee.
