Frabotta looks to have an injury.
Chiesa receives the ball on the edge of the box he nearly beats two players in the area but is tackled.
WOODWORK! Ronaldo cuts inside in the area and guides a low shot which comes off the far post.
Its got more exciting the past ten minutes, Juve looking more threatening.
More good defending from Spezia. Ronaldo sets up Kulusevski and his effort is charged down by Erlic.
Provedel gives it away, Chiesa sends in a low ball for Ronaldo and Terzi is there to block.
CHANCE! Chiesa's volley at the back post is charged down for a corner. Its played short and Chiesa's low cross is gathered by the keeper on the line.
CHANCE! Ronaldo with a mazry run into the box, Frabotta's cross is then blocked for a corner. Demiral's header loops up and the keeper gathers.
Spezia have a free kick after a clumsy Demiral challenge. Its headed out to Sena, who scuffs the volley horribly and Juve clear.
Spezia are looking more likely now to break the deadlock with their swift counter attacks.
CLOSE! Marchizza's fierce shot in the area is deflected over by Demiral's head.
CHANCE! Provedel is off his line, doesnt get anything on a through ball, Ronaldo can't turn and tries it pass it and its cleared.
Plenty of niggly fouls, the game has become scrappy.
Chiesa is limping after Gyasi caught him late. The last thing the Bianconeri need is another injury.
CHANCE! Farias goes past two challenges, trades passes with Nzola and is shot is deflected over for a corner. The corner is played short and its a waste.
A Rabiot cross is put behind for a corner. The delivery finds McKennie, who cannot turn and a get a shot away.
Ronaldo has been extremely quiet fo far, ditto Bentancur and Rabiot.
Marchizza looks the most dangerous down the Spezia left. Chiesa may be forced to do more tracking back.
CHANCE! Chiesa is looking sharp and fires an effort from a tight angle wide.
The late Davide Astori's image appears on the screens. He died three years ago on March 4.
- Yellow cardGianluca FrabottaJuventus
Frabotta is booked for taking down Vignali, who got a shoulder in his face it appears.
DISALLOWED GOAL: Chiesa smashes the ball into the roof of the net but he is well off-side.
Kulusevski cuts inside from the right and his shot is charged down by the visitors' defence.
CHANCE! Marchizza drills a shot wide of the near post from around eight yards after a slick move.
You can see why Spezia have got good results against the top sides this season.
A bright start from Spezia, Juve's backline looks a bit nervy.
Maggiore bursts into the box and wins a corner for the visitors which is cleared.
Frabotta looks to be playing as a centre-back in place of the injured De Ligt. Juve have quite a few injuries.
KICK OFF: We are underway in Turin.
COUNTDOWN: 5 mins till kick off!
INJURY BLOW: De Ligt, who had been struggling with a tendon issue, looks to have aggraved his injury in the warm up.
Frabotta has started warming up in his place.
Adrien Rabiot told Sky Sports Italia: "There are still many games to go, many points up for grabs.
"We have to believe, we are a squad full of champions and must do everything to take this Scudetto.”
On the threat of Spezia, the Frenchman added: "They are a team who can beat anyone, so we must be concentrated.
"They attack with many players and we need to be wary, but otherwise we have the quality and can score goals, so we only have to focus on our own strengths.”
Juve are ten points behind leaders Inter Milan but with a game in hand. So they really need 3 points to keep themselves in the Scudetto race after drawing 1-1 with Verona on Saturday. A win for Spezia tonight would see them climb to 13th.
