FT 

Peep peep! Juventus hold out, and they've won it 2-1.

90+3' 

Zielinski finds Osimhen in the box, and his shot on the turn is deflected over by De Ligt for a corner.

90' 

GOAL! Juventus 2 Napoli 1 (Insigne pen. 90)

Insigne sends Buffon definitively the wrong way, and Napoli are still in this! They'll have four minutes.

88' 

PENALTY! Now then! Chiellini brings down Osimhen just as he opened up to shoot, and it's a late chance for Napoli as Petagna comes on to replace Fabian Ruiz.

85' 

Insigne almost finds Lozano with a lovely, whipped pass in to the back post. Alex Sandro again intercepts well, briefly looking like he might divert it past Buffon but his goalkeeper gathers safely.

84' 

Dybala cleans out Lozano, and it's a free kick in a useful position for Napoli, 25 yards out and just to the right. Rui takes it, but it's straight into the wall.

81'

Rrahrmani wipes out Dybala with a scything challenge as Juventus break, and it's a yellow card.

80'

Arthur comes on for Chiesa for Juventus.

78' 

Rui fires in a nice cross from the left, but a flick off the head of Chiellini just takes it away from Osimhen.

76'

Rui and Elmas replace Hysaj and Mertens for Napoli.

75' 

Ronaldo leads a break for Juventus now and almost gets Dybala in again before Meret gathers.

  • Paulo Dybala
    GoalPaulo DybalaJuventusGOAL! Juventus 2 (Dybala 73) Napoli 0  That could be the match. Bentancur slips a nice pass through to Dybala, on the edge of the area on the right. He opens his body up and guides a left-footed curler right into the bottom corner. That's a lovely finish.

GOAL! Juventus 2 (Dybala 73) Napoli 0

That could be the match. Bentancur slips a nice pass through to Dybala, on the edge of the area on the right. He opens his body up and guides a left-footed curler right into the bottom corner. That's a lovely finish.

71' 

Fabian has a lash from 25 yards out; it's a vicious hit, but it's central and Buffon punches the ball away to the left.

69'

Two changes for Juventus, as McKennie and Dybala replace Morata and Cuadrado.

68' 

A lovely turn from Zielinski almost gets him through on goal, but Buffon is out to gather.

63' 

Our referee, Maurizio Mariani, is letting plenty go here; De Ligt wrestles Osimhen to the ground by the neck just as Napoli threaten to break, but no yellow is forthcoming.

60' 

This is so open. Juventus break three on two again, but Morata delays his pass for too long and Chiesa is offside in the area.

59' 

GOOD SAVE! Insigne goes past De Ligt with almost contemptuous ease on the left corner of the area, before walloping a shot that Buffon parries away.

56' 

It's a lively start from Osimhen; he's already volleyed one well wide before another shot is deflected wide for a corner.

54'

A double change for Napoli; Politano and Osimhen are on for Demme and Lozano.

In other news, Alex Sandro goes into the book.

53' 

CHANCE! Juventus break three on two after excellent pressure from Ronaldo. Morata lays off to Cuadrado on the right of the area, who can only smash his shot wide of the near post.

50' 

CHANCE! Cuadrado gets free on the right of the Napoli area. He stands a cross up to the penalty spot where Chiesa, completely unmarked, plants a header a yard wide of the post.

48' 

CHANCE! Lovely interplay between Zielinski and Insigne releases Di Lorenzo, unmarked in the area on the right. He sets himself and unloads at goal, with Buffon palming his effort to safety.

2ND HALF 

We're underway again.

HT 

That's the end of a thoroughly entertaining half.

45' 

Napoli are after a penalty now as Zielinski goes down under a challenge from Alex Sandro. It's certainly looks like a foul, but again the referee isn't asked to look at it, and on we go.

41' 

CHANCE! Morata breaks away down the right. His cutback misses Ronaldo but finds Chiesa, who skies it over from 15 yards out at the back post.

40' 

CLOSE! Insigne opens up from 25 yards out, sending the ball out for the far corner from the right, but it's inches over the bar and the despairing dive of Buffon.

40' 

Chiesa sets off on a blistering run down the left, but can't find Ronaldo with his inside pass.

38' 

CHANCE! Cuadrado cuts in from the right, a brilliant run that sees him ghost past two defenders, but he can only thrash his shot straight at Meret from 15 yards out.

36' 

...and the referee hasn't been called across to look at it. That's surprising, to say the least; Lozano completely missed the ball and clattered Chiesa after it had gone.

34' 

Juventus are screaming for a penalty here after Chiesa looked to be taken out by Lozano on the goalline in the area. It'll be reviewed...

32' 

There's something of a lull now after a frenetic opening half an hour.

28' 

Danilo crosses from the right corner of the area. It catches a slight deflection before floating dangerously to the back post, with no one around to take advantage.

26' 

Almost a chance for Juve here as Morata gets away down the left, but his attempt to find Ronaldo in the area is intercepted.

25' 

Mertens whips a cross into the box from the left, but it takes one bounce and lands in the hands of Buffon.

  • Kalidou Koulibaly

Koulibaly takes Betancur and the ball in one challenge, and is summarily booked for his troubles.

A quick word on Serie A's concurrent fixture tonight - league leaders Inter Milan are 1-0 up at home to Sassuolo.

21' 

Insigne whips a dangerous ball into the area again, but Chiellini clears.

19' 

Ronaldo, 35 yards out, gets a brief, one-on-one look at Rrahmani, but is expertly dispossessed.

16' 

A jet-heeled burst from Insigne, right through the centre of the pitch, sees hi find Hysaj on the left. He cuts it back to Fabian, who can only blooter it over the bar from the edge of the area.

15' 

That was wonderful wing trickery from Chiesa, real throwback stuff, and a lovely, tucked finish from Ronaldo.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
    GoalCristiano RonaldoJuventusGOAL! Juventus 1 (Ronaldo 13) Napoli 0 It's been coming! Brilliant, dancing play from Chiesa takes him past Insigne and Hysaj on the right of the area.

11' 

This could be 2-2 already! Insigne escapes into the Juventus area from a lovely reverse pass, and tries to drill a cross to Lozano at the back post. Only a superb sliding interception from Alex Sandro nixes a tap-in.

9' 

Ronaldo dances over the ball and lays it wide for Alex Sandro to cross. It ricochets to Chiesa, whose shot deflects over for a corner. From that, Rabiot glances a header a few yards wide of the far post.

6' 

Insigne goes on a sashay down the inside left channel, and clips a ball into the penalty area, but it's headed clear.

3' 

CHANCE! And now a huge miss from Napoli! Lozano cuts a ball back to Zielinski in the area, and with a free hit at goal he blazes wildly over the bar. Some start, this.

2' 

CHANCE! Oh my, what a miss! Morata releases Danilo down the right, who whips a cross into the six-yard box. Ronaldo, all alone, completely misses a free header at goal!

  • 1st Half
1' 

We're out in Turin, and we're underway!

17:42 

It's only been a couple of months since the two last met - in mid-February, a penalty by Lorenzo Insigne at the Stadio San Paolo gave Napoli a 1-0 victory.

17:37 

The current state of play is that Juventus sit precariously in the Champions League qualifying spots in fourth, with Napoli in fifth; the two are level on 58 points with ten games left to go in the season. The title is surely gone for both sides, with Inter ten points in the distance, but it's still all to play for if they want to be back in Europe's premier competition next season.
