  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    43' Juve are starting to increase the pressure here, as you'd expect against ten men – and this time it is Bernadeschi who misses a sitter!

    Great wing play from Ronaldo who centres from the left.

    It appears to be an open goal… but Bernadeschi lashes it over from three yards!

    Extraordinary.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    41' What a chance! You'd have put your mortgage on Ronaldo there!

    The 35-year-old finds himself, and I'm not exaggerating, in about four yards of space at the near post from a Dybala corner.

    You're waiting for the net to bulge… but he's missed – and missed by miles.

    Unbelievable let-off for Lecce.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    39' Let's take a look at that red card incident again, shall we?

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    38' Another Lecce effort on goal!

    Falco lays off a set-piece to Vera, who has a crack at goal!

    It's high and wide, however, and there appear to be a few grumbles from centre-backs that traipsed forward expecting a cross into the box.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    36' Paz gives De Ligt a little nudge at a corner and the Dutchman goes flying with his arms aloft.

    The referee ignores his cry of anguish, however, and we play on.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    35' Lecce chance!

    The ten-man relegation zone-dwellers are not lying down without a fight!

    After a decent spell of possession, the ball found Tachtsidis on the edge of the box, and the Greek fired an effort towards goal.

    He failed to find the target, however, and Juve breathe a little sigh of relief.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    32' It's a horrible moment for Lecce as all of their good work is undone.

    Tachtsidis passed ball back to Lucione, whose first touch let him down badly.

    Bentancur stole in to nick the ball, and was subsequently brought down when through on goal.

    Lucione's red card was just a formality at this point and the referee dutifully surprised no one with his decision.

    Its an uphill battle now for Lecce.

  • RED CARD!! LECCE ARE DOWN TO TEN MEN!

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    30' Another Ronaldo effort and it's closer this time.

    He shifts the ball onto his left foot 25 yards out and has a crack at goal.

    It whizzes across the turf, but just wide of the net.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    29' Ronaldo has a go at a spectacular overhead kick!

    Bernadeschi swings a cross into the box from the right, and the Portuguese will always back himself to pull off the sublime.

    He gets an okay contact on it, but can't steer it anywhere near Gabriel's net.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    28' Rispoli has a nice little wander forward and thinks 'why not?'

    His effort from range is on target, but tame, and easy for Szczesny to gather.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    26' Bernadeschi is caught offside yet again on that right flank, he must be infuriating his team-mates.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    23' Lecce have another corner after another nice little passage of play.

    It ends abruptly, however, with Giulio Donati punting a wild effort miles over the bar from 30 yards.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    22' Juve are being made to battle here!

    Lecce are playing some nice stuff, but their fans will be wary, having seen their team concede 60 goals this season.

    So far, so good tonight though.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    20' Good effort from range by Rabiot! The Frenchman brings a flying save out of Gabriel, who parries the ball to safety.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    19' Miralem Pjanic whips in a trademark set-piece, but Bentancur's header is nowhere near troubling Gabriel.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    18' A Lecce corner is cleared and suddenly Juventus have a three-on-two!

    Ronaldo's initial pass is poor… but it ricochets wide to Bentancur and the chance is still on.

    But then his pass is poor as well! Really casual from Juve and Lecce clear.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    16' Close!

    Mancosu with an effort for Lecce, as the ball found him 15 yards out in the box.

    His shot takes a slight nick, but finds its way into Szczesny's grateful hands.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    16' Former Italy international Fabio Liverani is conducting his men from the sideline… and will be delighted with what he's seen so far!

    Lecce giving as good as they're getting so far.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    14' Ronaldo flops over in the box as a set-piece whistles over his head.

    His scream is audible in the vast empty stadium, but the referee waves play on!

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    13' Juve edging the possession… but are yet to register a shot on goal.

    Not great so far from the champions-elect.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    10' Juve are having lots of early possession… but Lecce are reasonably comfortable so far.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    8' Promising start from Lecce!

    Liverani's men appear to have a plan and are causing Juventus some problems early on.

    The experienced Tachtsidis has started very well in the middle.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    5' Early Lecce chance!

    A clipped ball forward is nodded down smartly, before being laid on to Rispoli on the right.

    He thwacks an effort towards goal, but it whistles over Szczesny's goal.

    Encouraging for Fabio Liverani.

  • JUVENTUS 0 LECCE 0

    4' An extended spell of Juve possession ends with Juan Cuadrado passing the ball… straight out of play.

    Chelsea fans will recognise that move…
