It's all over! Juventus have beaten Roma! Moise Kean’s close-range header proved enough for Juventus to seal a 1-0 win against the Giallorossi in a game that will be best remembered for a controversial VAR decision just before half-time.
- Yellow cardRick KarsdorpAS Roma
YELLOW! Karsdrop brings down Arthur with a cynical sliding challenge from behind. Juventus look to have ground the three points out here.
FREE-KICK! Mkhitaryan runs into Locatelli and slightly surprisingly Roma are awarded a free-kick. The ball into the box flicked on by Cristante goes out for a goal-kick. THREE minutes of added time.
- Yellow cardGianluca ManciniAS Roma

YELLOW! To Danilo for a challenge on El Shaarawy as Roma looked to counter-attack.
- Yellow cardEldor ShomurodovAS Roma
YELLOW! For Shomurodov for standing on Chiellini's ankle as he let the ball go.
BIG DEFLECTION! Cristante rifles a shot on goal ,but Bonucci gets in the way of it and it goes out for a corner! Bonucci celebrates as he gets up from that. That was very important! The following corner comes to nothing as Chiellini marshals the ball clear.
Can Roma level late on here? They have Abraham and Shomurodov both up front now and will feel they deserve a point from this.
- OffJordan VeretoutAS Roma
- OnEldor ShomurodovAS Roma
SUB! Veretout comes off and is embraced by Mourinho. He makes way for Shomurodov.
Kulusevski's cross almost finds Morata at the far post but it just evades him and Karsdorp can clear.
- OffFederico BernardeschiJuventus
SUB! Arthur makes his first appearance of the season, coming back from knee surgery in July, and is on for Bernardeschi.
- OffFederico ChiesaJuventus
- OnDejan KulusevskiJuventus
Vina surges and cuts inside the Juventus box, but Chiellini makes a sliding block just in time to stop him from getting a shot away!! That was sensational defending from the Italy international.
- OffMoise KeanJuventus
- OnÁlvaro MorataJuventus
SUBS! Morata and Kulusevski are on for Chiesa and Kean.
- Yellow cardStephan El ShaarawyAS Roma
YELLOW! For El Shaarawy who catches Chiesa.
Roma will feel hard done by not to be level in this game, but at the same time Kean really should have converted from point-blank range in the 49th minute. This game has been full of incident and we should be set for an action-packed final 20 minutes!
SHOT! Veretout tries to curl a 25-yard strike into the bottom corner but it goes narrowly past the post!
JUST WIDE! Bernardeschi fires a shot on goal from range but he drags his shot wide.
It's been a fiery contest and Roma are now starting to ask questions of Juventus with the hosts struggling to retain possession.
VAR SAYS NO PENALTY! After a check which took one minute and 44 seconds, we play on.
VAR FOR A POTENTIAL PENALTY! Pellegrini goes down in the box as Chiellini went to make a clearance. Referee Orsato thinks about giving it but in the end decides not to much to the frustration of the Roma players. However, it has gone to VAR... if it is given who will take it? Abraham or Veretout? Amid the drama Pellegrini is receiving medical treatment, but did Chiellini touch him as he cleared the ball? That is the question...
SHOT! De Sciglio brings the ball down inside the box and drills a shot on goal from inside the area off his right boot but he drags it past the near post. Juventus are pushing hard for a second goal.
- Yellow cardMattia De SciglioJuventus
YELLOW! For De Sciglio for a late sliding tackle on Karsdorp.
BIG MISS! It's a huge miss from Kean! De Sciglio's cross is met by Bernardeschi who produces a fantastic overhead kick! Patricio spills it but somehow Kean blasts the rebound over the bar! That was a glorious chance for Juventus to extend their lead!
Roma have a free-kick on the left flank after Cuadrado fouls Vina. Pellegrini swings the ball into the area but Juventus clear their lines.
- 2nd Half
We are back underway for the second half!
Here is the moment of controversy before half-time which ends up with Veretout's penalty getting saved.
- End of 1st Half
Juventus go into the break 1-0 up after Veretout's penalty is saved by Szczesny on the stroke of half-time.
YELLOW! For Abraham who puts a late tackle in on Chiellini.
- Yellow cardTammy AbrahamAS Roma
FOUR minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
PENALTY SAVED!!! The penalty struck by Veretout is saved by Szczesny low down to his left-hand side!!
- Yellow cardWojciech SzczesnyJuventus
CONTROVERSY! Abraham has the ball in the net but the referee has pointed to the spot instead as Mkhitaryan is fouled by Szczesny in the build-up inside the box! The ball was bundled over the goalkeeper anyway and Abraham tapped into the net. Mourinho is fuming! Surely referee Orsato should have played advantage. There is now a VAR check for a penalty as well as an offside. A PENALTY IS GIVEN AND THE GOAL IS RULED OUT!
The corner from Mkhitaryan swung to the far post almost finds Mancini, but he clatters into Szczesny and Juventus have a free-kick.
De Sciglio's cross comes out to Cuadrado before he slips on the ball. El Shaarawy leads a counter-attack and lays it off to Abraham. The Roma striker attempts to go all the way but Danilo gets back to make a crucial tackle just before he can pull the trigger inside the Juve box.
SAVE! Abraham gets his first attempt on goal. On the counter-attack El Shaarawy passes it to Vina who gets a pinpoint cross into the box. Abraham meets it but his header lacks sufficient power and it's a comfortable save for Szczesny in the end.
Juventus are starting to play with greater composure and are retaining more possession. The hosts have had just one shot on target so far and that, of course, was the goal.
Here is that Bentancur/Kean goal if you are viewing this page from the UK 👇
Bentancur looked to have spun Ibanez but the Roma defender goes down seemingly untouched. Nevertheless, referee Orsato awards the visitors a free-kick anyway.
- OffNicolò ZanioloAS Roma
- OnStephan El ShaarawyAS Roma
SUB! Zaniolo appears to have an issue with his hamstring. He comes off for El Shaarawy.
Zaniolo attempts a first-time pass into the path of Abraham but Chiellini can clear. Roma are continuing to push forward and apply pressure on Juventus' backline.
Mkhitaryan is down on the ground after clashing heads with Danilo. He is up on his feet now, though.
How will Roma respond? They have had a lot of the ball in this contest but Juventus are always a danger in the wide areas and have the pace to counter-attack quickly.
- GoalMoise KeanJuventus
GOAL! KEAN HEADS JUVENTUS IN FRONT! A fantastic cross from De Sciglio on the left flank finds Bentancur at the far post and he nods it off Kean and past Patricio to fire the hosts in front! The goal could be awarded to either of them really... Juventus lead!
After a small delay, Bonucci is back on the pitch and looks to be fine to continue.
Danilo's cross finds De Sciglio at the far post and he squares it back into the box, but Roma clear their lines. At the other end Zaniolo has a fierce left-footed shot on goal form range which appears to wind Bonucci and play is stopped. This has been end-to-end.
This match is being played at a ferocious tempo and Roma are evidently on top at the moment. Mancini is down in some discomfort holding his hip. He remains on the pitch for now.
OVER! Zaniolo bursts forward and jinks past two defenders before laying it off to Pellegrini. Pellegrini fires a shot on goal just outside the box and Chiellini makes a sliding block which takes it just over the bar!
CHANCE! De Sciglio slides in on Karsdorp and Roma have a free-kick in a great position just outside the box down the right flank. Pellegrini swings the ball into the area and Mancini meets it at the back post and heads on target, but Szczesny is able to parry it away!
Roma are zipping the ball around with plenty of confidence and Juventus are affording them space. Mkhitaryan tries to feed a ball into the path of Abraham but Bonucci can intercept.
Roma begin with the lions share of possession. Juve are pressing them high up the pitch, but the visitors are riding the wave at the moment.
Juventus make a fast start as Bernardeschi crosses into the box which ends up becoming a shot on target, but Patricio can get down to claim it.
- 1st Half
We are underway in Turin! This could well be box office...
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just moments away! Not since the days of Capello and Batistuta have Roma got their hands on the Scudetto. Will they kickstart their title push tonight against the Old Lady? The hosts look to like they may be getting back to their best. It's Allegri v Mourinho... what a game we have in store.
Juventus are in good form, but face a tough test tonight against a Roma side who are keen to mount a title challenge with Tammy Abraham leading their line.
Roma can move into third with a win this evening. They are currently fourth in the Serie A table on 15 points, two behind third-placed Inter Milan. For Juventus, a fourth Serie A win in a row tonight would see them move up into seventh.
Jose Mourinho has admitted to having an 'emotional connection' with Newcastle but says he is 100 per cent committed to his project at Roma. The Portuguese served under legendary Newcastle manager Sir Bobby Robson when the Englishman was in charge at Barcelona.
The warm-ups are well underway in Turin...
FOUR changes to the Juventus side that beat Torino 1-0 in the Turin derby on October 2. Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia De Sciglio, Juan Cuadrado and Rodrigo Bentancur come in for the injured Matthijs de Ligt, Adrien Rabiot (ill), Alex Sandro and Weston McKennie (both benched).
It's TWO changes to the Roma side that beat Empoli 2-0 before the international break. Chris Smalling (thigh injury) and Ebrima Darboe (benched) are replaced by Roger Ibanez and Bryan Cristante.
