General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 There will be one final chance, Juve corner and even Buffon is up! Sampdoria survive once more though.
90' +4 A. Pirlo gets yellow.
M. Icardi gets yellow.
Vucinic is free in the area, but he cannot pull the trigger. Costa scrambles clear, and Juve win the free kick 40 metres from goal.
A bizarre decision. Pirlo fires the ball into Icardi who had failed to retreat 10m, and both are booked. Why, I could not tell you.
90' +3 The midfielder looks in bad shape, he is stretchered off covered in a blanket as Juve begin their final assault on this match.
90' +1 Now just to add injury to insult, Marchisio is down on the turf clutching his knee and he looks in some discomfort. No subs left on the Juve side.
We will have four minutes of injury time in Juventus Stadium, although that could be extended because of Marchisio's misfortune.
90' Time is running out now as we move into injury time, Sampdoria have put in a sterling defensive effort throughout the 90 minutes to keep their rivals at bay.
88' In a rare foray into the Juve area, Tissone tries to kill the game off but is thwarted by the attentions of Bonucci.
87' F. Peluso gets yellow.
86' Almost the equaliser!! Padoin fires in a wicked shot with the left, and Romero gets down well to parry. Vucinic is closing in, but the Argentine recovers at the double to fall down on the rebound like a hand grenade.
85' Lazio are another team that will be willing forward Samp. If the result stays the same, the Roman side move within five points of the summit.
84' I've lost count of how many corners Juve have had today, but they've been in vain. A Pirlo delivery is cleared to the edge of the box, and Marchisio volleys well wide to his obvious disgust.
