Full-time: Juventus continue their winning run and climb above Roma into third with this clinical performance.

90'+3 

There's no way back for Roma, but still their search for a consolation goes on.

90'

FIVE added minutes will be played here at the Allianz Stadium.

89' 

To their credit, Roma are refusing to surrender. Spinazzola carves inside and strikes a low shot from distance, but it's straight forward for Szczesny to save.

76' 

That just about sums it up for Roma, as Veretout blazes over the bar on the rebound after Mkhitaryan's shot was blocked by Bonucci.

74' 

Juventus are looking more than comfortable now. Just over 15 minutes to play, and they're going to hold on for three more points, you feel.

73' 

It's a long way back for Roma now. Juve have hardly laid a glove on them but have proved far more clinical in front of goal. As it stands, the Old Lady are moving into third.

Yellow card! A frustrated Ronaldo is booked for dissent. He was fairly challenged, so his complaints to the referee are completely unneccessary.

59'

Chance for Roma! Mkhitaryan carries Roma forward, feeding Villar, who scuffs a weak shot at goal. It's deflected into the path of Mayoral, who is then flagged offside on the rebound, but that's much better from the visitors.

57'

Ronaldo receives the ball left of the penalty area and tees up Morata, whose first-time shot curls wide of goal. But it wouldn't have counted as again the offside flag is raised very, very late.

Yellow card! Kumbulla is booked for a tug on Morata's shirt right in front of the referee.

53' 

Roma are really crying out for Dzeko. For all their intent and passing and moving, they have yet to register a single shot on target.

52'

Ronaldo makes a run behind the Roma defence but the offside flag is raised. Meanwhile, Edin Dzeko is warming up and may well be introduced sooner rather than later.

49' 

Arthur makes the block on Mayoral, so we will have another corner. From the latest delivery, the ball bounces off Bonucci before Juve finally clear.

48' 

Alex Sandro recovers well and beats Karsdorp for pace to block the cross, as Roma win yet another corner.

46'

Kick-off! We are back up and running in this compelling Serie A match!

  • End of 1st Half
HT

Half-time: Juventus lead at the break courtesy of another goal from Cristiano Ronaldo. The Old Lady have had to absorb a lot of pressure as Roma have dominated possession - but the visitors have lacked a cutting edge.

45' 

The referee has sent off Roberto Baronio, a member of Juve's backroom staff for talking too much. He had wanted a free-kick but it wasn't forthcoming. Meanwhile another Roma corner comes to nothing as Szczesny collects from Veretout's delivery on this occasion.

43' 

For all of Roma's possession, Juve have made the clearer chances. Ronaldo's 13th-minute strike separates the sides as we approach half-time.

41'

Ronaldo chance! Juve spring a counter-attack, Ronaldo gets in behind Kumbulla, beating the offside trap. He strikes it early but Pau Lopez beats it away.

Yellow card! The first booking of the match is shown to Mancini for a cynical foul on Rabiot.

32' 

Roma are refusing to allow the scoreline to affect their spirit as they continue to dominate possession.

30' 

Lopez sells a short back pass to Kumbulla, but with Ronaldo ready to pounce the Roma defender just about gets there first.

29' 

Villar overhits a cross as Roma's final ball lets them down once again. They've had 53 per cent of possession so far but have yet to really test Szczesny.

26' 

Roma continue to look threatening in attack but as of yet they have nothing to show for their endeavour.

23' 

Replays showed that Ronaldo confronted the referee, claiming the ball had cross the line, even trying to have a sneaky look at the ref's watch! It wasn't close, but you have to admire his optimism.

22'

Ronaldo hits the bar! His first touch is excellent and then his shot takes a huge deflection off Kumbulla. It crashes off the crossbar and bounces away to safety!

20'

Roma go close! Juve make a mess of attempting to clear from a corner. The loose ball falls to Cristante who skims the top of the bar with a sweet volley from the edge of the penalty area. So close to an equaliser!

19' 

Morata makes a clever run in behind the Roma defence. He shrugs Ibanez off the ball as he closes in on goal but the referee deems that challenge as a foul.

- 

The difference between the sides so far...

16' 

Rabiot makes a clumsy challenge inside the penalty area but it's never a foul.

15' 

Roma had made a very bright start, dominating the possession and asking questions of Juve's defence. But Ronaldo only needed a sight at goal to score. What a player.

Roma are stretched as Morata releases Ronaldo on the left flank. Roma get men back but it doesn't matter as a very late call for offside is made.

9' 

Mkhitaryan picks up the ball in a good area and forces a corner. Cristante's delivery is deep but Juve clear their lines. Roma keep it alive. Chiellini intervenes and Szczesny collects.

7'

Ronaldo comes deep and wins a free-kick after a foul from Villar. Mancini shoves Chiellini to the ground, but the referee allows the free-kick to be taken and Ronaldo's delivery is straight into the arms of Pau Lopez.

4' 

Roma soak up the pressure and hit Juve on the counter, but Alex Sandro is back to intervene.

2' 

Juventus are on the attack immediately, and although nothing comes of their first corner they have made an early statement of intent.

FIVE minutes until kick-off at the Allianz Stadium! It's Juventus versus Roma in the Serie A. It's LIVE and it's NEXT!

16:50 

Roma have recorded back-to-back victories in the league to move into third, seven points adrift of pacesetters Inter having played a game less. Juventus are a point and a place behind Roma, but have two games in hand over Inter and come into this game in fine fettle. This feels like a crucial match for both sides.

16:45

Pre-match stat: Roma have lost more Serie A games against Juventus than they have against any other side (82).

- 

Who needs Dzeko?

16:40 

Fonseca on Juve: "They are very strong and have a great coach. Different from the one who started the season. They are more dynamic and confident, they have great individuals. But we are in a good moment, we are confident.”

- 

16:35 

Pirlo on Ronaldo: “I knew about the professional, but seeing him train every day was a surprise. He still has great passion, he has fun. If you still have this desire, it means you are a hero. He has it, like [Gigi] Buffon, [Giorgio] Chiellini, [Leo] Bonucci.”

16:30 

Pirlo on Roma: "It will be a match against a team that, in my opinion, plays some of the best football in Italy. They have great players, and we will have to be focused on the counters. We have to make few mistakes.”

16:20 

Edin Dzeko starts on the bench for Roma amid an ongoing row with coach Paulo Fonseca. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Borja Mayoral start in attack, with captain Bryan Cristante restored to midfield.

16:15 

Alvaro Morata is restored to the Juve side having been dropped to the bench for the 2-1 victory over Inter in the Coppa Italia in midweek. He forms a partnership in attack with Cristiano Ronaldo, who celebrated his 36th birthday yesterday. Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci also return to the defence.
