    • 90+2' It's all over - 3-0 to Juve and they move seven points clear at the top of Serie A.
    • 90+1' Giovinco to the left byline and lifts a cross to the far side where Vidal will surely score from inside the six-yard box... he somehow drags his controlled effort across the face of goal. Rubbish.
    • 90' Quagliarella in behind - and another great block by Consigli saves Atalanta again.
    • 89' Weird low free-kick played on the floor across the face of the box by Pirlo, with seemingly no one expecting it. The ball makes its way to Giovinco via Asamoah, and the tiny star hits a devilish strike that dips in front of Consigli. He blocks and the rebound is scrambled away.
    • 87' Pirlo shifts the ball to the left of centre and Quagliarella as Juve consider the best way to attack the Atalanta box again. The Italian striker feints and sets himself up to bend a shot wide of the top corner. A yard wide maybe - good try.
    • 85' Moralez wins a free-kick after his cross is handballed. He taps the free-kick right for Argentine striker Denis to strike - he doesn't catch it properly and it runs wide of the near post.
    • 84' Quagliarella with a few yards of space and dips a strike towards the far post where Consigli pushes away.
    • 83' Juventus left-wingback Asamoah with a volley for goal - not bad technique, but he slices it slightly and it flies wide of the near post.
    • 81' Vidal looks to lift a cross into the box, but it is straight at an away defender.
    • 79' Poor shot from Vidal after shifting the ball from foot to foot outside the box. Well over the bar.
    • 75' Atalanta change: Riccardo Cazzola on for Cigarini, back at the club he loves on loan from Napoli.
    • 74' Giovinco meets a low fizzed ball but can only blaze it over from 10 yards! Will he ever score?
    • 73' Giaccherini down hurt but will be able to continue.
    • 72' Quick first touch from Giovinco to dart down the left inside the box and fire for goal - great save from Consigli before a defender clears the ball. The goalie has earned his keep today.
    • 72' Juve have spread the goals around their side this season. Serie A Top Scorers
    • 71' Pirlo with a clever disguised chip to the far side of the box where Kwadwo Asamoah arrives to play a first-time cross that is cleared.
    • 70' Juve change: Emanuele Giaccherini on for goalscorer Marchisio.
    • 68' Vidal does brilliantly to dispossess a defender and angle along the byline before looking to tee up Giovinco - it is cut out.
    • 66' Giovinco takes the ball down with his instep and moves past a challenge and into the box... and drags his finish wide!
    • 64' Juve change: Simone Padoin on for Barzagli.
    • 63' Pirlo with a bullet of a strike from outside the box to force a save out of Consigli. Quagliarella is there to stick away the rebound, but he was well offside when Pirlo put his foot through the ball.
    • 61' Juve's seemingly inevitable win has more importance this weekend as a late strike from Miroslav Klose gave Lazio a hard-fought 1-0 win over Inter yesterday. Klose gives Lazio win over Inter
    • 60' Rubbish corner from Moralez.
    • 59' Ezequiel Schelotto looks to create a yard of space to shoot for goal from the right corner of the box. Deflected wide - corner to Atalanta.
    • 58' Lichtsteiner cuts in from the right and Giovinco springs the offside trap to score at the near post under Consigli... but no, the flag goes up as the ball goes in. He was just off.
    • 56' Juve change: Fabio Quagliarella on for Vucinic.
    • 55' Poor cross from Vucinic to no one. On the next attack, Chiellini slips in the box and handballs. he is penalised and it is a good job for Atalanta as he was then fouled while looking to win the ball back.
    • 54' Atalanta have struggled to cope with the onrushing five midfielders of the home side's 3-5-2 formation, which has the irrepressible Giovinco playing behind Vucinic.
    • 53' Moralez frustrated by a long cross into the Juve box.
    • 51' Lichtsteiner bursts into the box and on to a ball but miscontrols. The Swiss right-wingback lunges to try and keep the ball in play, but cannot quite get there. He sees the funny side.
    • 50' Luca Cigarini with a strike from a long way out - well over the frame of Buffon's goal.
    • 49' Juve take over possession and move the ball intelligently in front of the box before Vucinic cuts it and his square ball is fired low by Giovinco - excellent save by Consigli at the post.
    • 47' Early pressure from the visitors as they win a corner. The Bianconeri head clear easily.
    • 46' The second half underway with Atalanta now attacking the goal to our left.
    • - Atalanta change at the break: Davide Biondini, on loan from Genoa, on for Ivan Radovanovic.
    • - How much is Giovinco worth? Can anyone stop them in Serie A this season - and will they challenge for the Champions League? Tweet me @symco_eurosport
    • 45+1' The first half draws to a close. Juve are too sharp for Atalanta in attack and lead 3-0.
    • 45+1' Vidal arrives on the far side as the ball bounces high but manages to scissor a powerful volley at goal, beaten away by Consigli at the near post. So close to number four.
    • 45' One minute to be added on.
    • 44' Clumsy tackle from Atalanta captain Gianpaolo Bellini on Vucinic to halt an attack.
    • 43' Vidal with a dangerous run into the box but is not quite found by Giovinco as Consigli gathers.
    • 42' That man Giovinco again, racing down the left flank. He is caught by Luca Cigarini, although he went down a little easily.
    • 41' Serie A Standings
    • 39' Atalanta change: defender Guglielmo Stendardo on for midfielder Bonaventura - a direct result of the red card.
    • 38' Vucinic takes the ball from Giovinco on the left and may be in... he has a poor first touch then his eventual cross is to no one. A quicker return pass would have been better.
    • 37' Lichtsteiner just offside as Giovinco threads a pass through for him following excellent work from Pirlo to open up Atalanta.
    • 35' Giacomo Bonaventura under pressure and forced to concede a corner.
    • 34' Live Italian Serie A Scores
    • 32' The TV director did not show the referee dishing out the first yellow card - he fouled Arturo Vidal.
    • 31' Thomas Manfredini takes out Chiellini, who rolls around like he's been shot... and out comes a second yellow card then a red!
    • 29' Stephan Lichtsteiner pounding up the right and into the box, played in... his strike is wide of the near post and just over.
    • 28' Moralez looking to provide a cutting edge to Atalanta's attack but first his cross is cleared then his shot is blocked.
    • 27' THIRD GOAL FOR JUVE! MARCHISIO! He lets fly from 25 yards out and the ball, via a small deflection, whistles low past Consigli and into the corner. 3-0.
    • 26' Pirlo leads Juve out of defence but Giovinco, who is at the heart of everything Juve do, can't get a ball into the box.
    • 23' Giovinco with a strike from inside the box that Consigli tips on to the post and wide. Looked destined to become the third goal for Juve.
    • 21' Another move into the box instigated by Giovinco ends at the feet of Vucinic, but he is crowded out.
    • 20' Giovinco looks for a ball into the box but it runs through to away keeper Andrea Consigli.
    • 19' Atalanta clear a corner but only as far as the edge of the box where Chiellini arrives to thunder a shot just wide. It took a small deflection and so it will be another corner.
    • 17' Claudio Marchisio opens up his body to shoot from 20 yards, but the effort is blocked.
    • 16' Juve are controlling possession, as you might expect, but there is a threat from the visitors on the counter.
    • 14' WHAT A GOAL FROM ANDREA PIRLO! Free-kick from over 30 yards out - and he whips it over the wall and into the top corner! 2-0 Juve.
    • 12' Tiny playmaker Moralez picks up a loose ball out of a challenge and shoots for the near post, but Juve captain Buffon is there to save and gather at the second attempt.
    • 11' Atalanta attack: Maximiliano Moralez fed down the left and crosses low, but Andrea Barzagli is there to get the ball clear.

    • 9' The free-kick down the right side of the box is in a dangerous positionm, but the ball in is headed away.
    • 8' Giorgio Chiellini slides in late on Giacomo Bonaventura - a very bad tackle on the Atalanta midfielder. The away players unhappy at the lack of a card.
    • 6' Luca Marrone it was who slipped in defence for Juve. The surface is troubling the players - there has been snow recently in this area of Italy.
    • 5' Live Italian Serie A Scores
    • 4' Great chance for Atalanta! German Denis through after a slip by a home defender but Gianluigi Buffon is out to pull off a fantastic block near the edge of his box!
    • 3' Well that didn't take long... tiny playmaker Giovinco had already been in behind on the opposite right side moments before, with a visiting defender blocking the cross.
