Commentary

That's all from Marassi today, so thank you for joining us and goodbye!
Having taken four points from their first two fixtures, Juve's next Serie A outing comes at home to potential top-four rivals Roma at the weekend, while Samp travel south to take on Salernitana, still looking for their first league goal of the 2022-23 campaign.
Though both sides had chances to win a well-balanced game - with Juventus coming closest on a couple of occasions - neither convinced in the final third, and a goalless draw reflects that lack of inspiration. While the hosts were disciplined and dug in well to preserve a point, their visitors from Turin leave Liguria frustrated by a disjointed display, though a whole host of absentees meant their squad was depleted. In summary: not a classic.
90' + 7' FULL-TIME: SAMPDORIA 0-0 JUVENTUS
90' + 6' A calamitous lack of communication between Kean and Bremer sees both making contact with a corner from the right, and the ball drifts wide instead of towards goal. Frustration is etched across Allegri's face!
90' + 5' Another below-par free-kick from Sabiri sails way over the top of Perin's goal. From 25 yards out, with time ticking down, that was a wasted chance to steal all three points.
90' + 3' SHARP SAVE! In the third of six minutes indicated for stoppage time, Audero makes a crucial save from Kostic, who arrives unmarked at the back post to meet Kean's sweeping cross from the left. The winger's volley was too close to the Samp stopper, but the save still had to be made. The Blucerchiati survive!
N. Rovella
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Not long after his introduction from the bench, Rovella is booked for an ill-timed tackle on Sabiri in midfield.
89' CLOSE! Quagliarella almost provides an ending as romantic as it would have been dramatic, as the ex-Juve veteran latches onto a throughball from Verre before flipping the ball narrowly wide of the right-hand post!
88' Making himself half a yard of space, Rovella tries his luck from 20 yards out, but his shot spins over the top of the crossbar, with Audero untroubled.
V. Verre
Yellow Card
87' A crunching challenge on Rovella earns Verre a merited booking, as there was never any chance of winning the ball without also taking down his opponent.
N. Rovella
M. Locatelli
85' After a disappointing display, Locatelli is replaced by Rovella in the Juventus engine room for the final few minutes.
82' A distinct lack of urgency from Juve sees the game seemingly amble towards a goalless conclusion, and Sampdoria would be more than happy to accept a point.
80' Sabiri strikes a free-kick from outside the box towards goal, but his attempt rises high over the crossbar - that was far from his best attempt.
F. Quagliarella
F. Caputo
78' To a warm round of applause, Caputo makes way for former Juventus striker Quagliarella, who is just months from his 40th birthday.
F. Depaoli
R. Vieira
78' Giampaolo opts to take off Vieira, with Depaoli coming on in his place.
M. Kean
J. Cuadrado
77' Allegri seeks to gain some attacking momentum by throwing on Kean, as Cuadrado makes way.
75' Sampdoria have not scored in their last two Serie A matches, either side of the summer break, and if they fail to find the net in the remaining minutes, they will have gone goalless in three straight Serie A games for the first time since 2016.
Gonzalo Villar
F. Đuričić
73' Djuricic is taken off, too, as Villar comes on to provide fresh legs in midfield.
N. Murru
T. Augello
73' Having succumbed to cramp, Augello take shis leave; Murru replaces him at left-back.
70' Augello is suffering with cramp in the hot conditions, and receives help from Colley. Again, the match is halted; continuing a staccato period since Rabiot's disallowed strike.
68' The game resumes, and Sampdoria have taken the chance to make a change in midfield.
V. Verre
T. Rincón
67' Verre has arrived on the scene following the drinks break, with Rincon making way.
67' Midway through the second half, the action is paused for a cooling break in sweltering Liguria, where it is particularly humid today.
66' NO GOAL! The VAR review picks up an offside on Vlahovic, before he laid on the assist for Rabiot, so the 'goal' is scrubbed out: it stays 0-0!
65' JUVE SCORE! Turning Colley inside out with a sharp turn on the left byline, Vlahovic coolly picks out Rabiot, who then fires home an unerring shot into the back of the net. Juventus celebrate, but was the Serbian striker offside in the build-up? The VAR will decide!
64' Cuadrado is fortunate to avoid a booking for bringing down Sabiri inside the Samp half; conceding only a free-kick.
F. Miretti
W. McKennie
62' Allegri opts for a second substitution: McKennie makes way for Miretti in midfield.
M. Léris
Yellow Card
62' For a heavy tackle on Kostic inside his own half, Leris is the latest man to have his name taken by the referee.
60' Summing up the visitors' efforts so far today, Danilo badly miscontrols the ball out on the right flank and a Juventus attack breaks down before it has really begun.
58' From Sabiri's free-kick, which is fed down the left instead of into the packed penalty area, Augello tries to cross but the ball is blocked by Vlahovic. Juventus then clear their lines.
57' Caputo is felled by a sliding challenge from Locatelli and Sampdoria will have a free-kick around 30 yards out from goal. Surely, Sabiri will take it.
55' Losing his composure, Leris slashes across a shot from a bouncing ball, and it sails well off target from the right side of the Juve area.
53' After being passed fit to continue, Colley makes his way back into the fray from the touchline, and the action resumes.
52' Causing concern for Giampaolo, his centre-back Colley is down on the deck nursing an injury. The game is halted as he receives treatment from the medics.
51' Being closed down by Vieira, as he charges towards goal from the right, Vlahovic steers a shot wide of the left-hand post. That's better from the Juve striker, who was something of a passenger in the first half.
50' Vlahovic tumbles in the area and makes a vague appeal for a penalty, following a coming-together with Colley. The referee is not interested, though.
48' In a low-key opening to the second half, Juventus are still struggling to build any attacking momentum, and Sampdoria seem comfortable in their shape.
M. De Sciglio
Alex Sandro
46' Having been booked during a difficult first half, Sandro is replaced by De Sciglio at left-back.
46' We are back under way at Stadio Luigi Ferraris - and Juventus have made a half-time change.
The last Serie A draw between Sampdoria and Juventus came in December 2014, with Manolo Gabbiadini - a Samp substitute today - scoring on that occasion. Since then, there has been a winner in each of their 15 encounters - but will that streak now finally end?
Both teams fashioned one major chance in an evenly contested first half, but given pre-match hopes, Juventus will be disappointed with their display so far. A well-drilled Samp side has largely kept the Bianconeri at bay, and the probing of Sabiri has more than once threatened to unlock them at the other end. Nonetheless, Juve often find a way to take the points despite such turgid showings and will surely improve after the interval.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: SAMPDORIA 0-0 JUVENTUS
Alex Sandro
Yellow Card
44' After a slalom run through several Samp defenders, Sandro loses the ball, then frustratedly brings down Sabiri. That earns him a booking.
F. Đuričić
Yellow Card
42' For clipping Rabiot in central midfield, as Juventus threatened to counter, Djuricic is shown the first yellow card of the game.
40' Samp continue to press for an opener, as Augello tries his luck from the edge of the box, but after his shot is deflected wide, the flag goes up for offside.
38' Rincon thrusts past a static Locatelli just inside the Juventus half, and the former Torino player then fires a hopeful shot well wide of the right-hand post from 20 yards out.
36' Not for the first time, a surge from Kostic sees the Juve winger reach the left byline. In some space, he takes a touch and clips the ball back for Rabiot, but the Frenchman's shot is steered straight at Audero.
34' Locatelli dawdles on the ball inside his own area, and after Djuricic nearly steals the ball, Sabiri does. However, it runs away from him and Juventus clear their lines.
32' The visitors escape again, as Sabiri sees a couple of shots charged down following the corner. Only one side is creating opportunities here, and it's the Blucerchiati.
31' After Caputo holds the ball up well, and lays it off to his captain Bereszynski, the latter's dangerous cross towards the back post is bundled behind by the Juve defence - Samp have another corner.
29' Still keeping Sandro busy with his trickery, Leris just overruns the ball out on the right touchline, and Juve's defence can relax for a moment. This has not been a comfortable first half-hour for the Bianconeri.
27' We are back under way following the drinks break, and Juventus have the ball; looking to build from the back.
26' Due to the heat, the game is paused for a cooling break, and both teams take on board drinks - plus some tactical instruction from their respective coaches.
24' Following a corner, Rabiot takes a big swing at an ambitious effort from outside the area: it sails far over the crossbar, to the jeers of the Samp fans in the surrounding stands.
22' SHARP STOP! Kostic cuts inside from the left, and takes a pop at goal from the corner of the box with his right foot. His shot is deflected up off Ferrari's back, leaving Audero to make another important save - tipping it just over the crossbar.
19' Reflecting their supremancy so far, Sampdoria have had 59 per cent of possession - they will be keen to make that pay while they're still in the ascendancy, though.
17' Sabiri drives in a flat corner-kick from the right, causing Vlahovic to intervene hurriedly at the near post and concede another corner. The striker flicked it against the post and was fortunate not to score an own goal there! Sampdoria are quite clearly on top.
15' SAVE! A careless touch by Augello allows Cuadrado to pounce; surging down the right flank and then haring towards goal. His powerful shot, though, is straight at Audero, and the Samp goalkeeper makes a smart save at close range!
14' Sabiri and Leris combine again, and the pair are causing the Juve defence plenty of problems so far. However, the attack is eventually extinguished and the Bianconeri have a goal-kick.
12' Kostic sends an early ball across the box from out on the left touchline, but it is overhit and sails past Vlahovic, who was lurking near the penalty spot.
10' Attempting to draw the sting out of their hosts, Juventus stroke the ball around at the back, as they seek to impose some order on a disjointed start.
8' Boosted by coming so close to an early breakthrough, Samp are now flooding forward: Juve are rattled and retreat into their own defensive third.
6' OFF THE BAR! So close to an opening goal, but Samp just miss out! A defence-splitting pass from Sabiri picks out Leris in space, deep inside the Juve area, but the latter's attempt to loft the ball over Perin and into the net is unsuccessful; clipping the keeper and striking the bar! Fortunately for the visitors, it then bounces away to safety.
5' Juventus have won by scoring at least twice in their last three games against Sampdoria at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, so will hope to continue that trend today.
3' Yet to really get their foot on the ball and put their hosts under pressure, Juventus have started without making much progress into the Sampdoria half.
1' We are under way in Genoa!
While the two coaches enjoy an extended chat, the players file out on the pitch at Marassi, with kick-off now just moments away!
Having suffered an injury on his league debut, Di Maria is out of commission for the next few weeks - joining Paul Pogba, Federico Chiesa and Wojciech Szczesny on the sidelines for Juventus. Furthermore, Bonucci is only fit enough for a place on the bench, so Rugani is promoted to partner Bremer in the visitors' back four. In Di Maria's absence, Kostic features in support of Vlahovic up front, while Kean and Rabiot are both back from suspension, and the latter starts in midfield.
As Gabbiadini recently returned to action following a long-term injury absence, Sampdoria have selected today's XI from an almost fully fit squad. The former Southampton striker starts on the bench, as Marco Giampaolo keeps faith in the team which started against Atalanta. Playing a familiar lone role up front, Caputo will aim to get off the mark for the season, having posted 11 goals and six assists in a struggling side last term.
SUBS: Carlo Pinsoglio, Giovanni Garofani, Matias Soule, Federico Gatti, Mattia De Sciglio, Denis Zakaria, Nicolo Fagioli, Moise Kean, Leonardo Bonucci, Nicolo Rovella, Fabio Miretti.
JUVENTUS (4-3-3): Mattia Perin; Danilo, Daniele Rugani, Bremer, Alex Sandro; Adrien Rabiot, Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie; Juan Cuadrado, Dusan Vlahovic, Filip Kostic.
SUBS: Nikita Contini, Nicola Ravaglia, Gerard Yepes, Fabio Depaoli, Lorenzo Malagrida, Valerio Verre, Fabio Quagliarella, Nicola Murru, Jeison Murillo, Manolo Gabbiadini, Maxime Leverbe, Gonzalo Villar.
SAMPDORIA (4-1-4-1): Emil Audero; Bartosz Bereszynski, Omar Colley, Alex Ferrari, Tommaso Augello; Ronaldo Vieira; Mehdi Leris, Tomas Rincon, Abdelhamid Sabiri, Filip Djuricic; Francesco Caputo.
After a 3-0 win in their opening league match last Monday, Juventus arrive in Genoa seeking maximum points from their first away fixture. Having swept aside Sassuolo with the help of debutant Angel Di Maria, the Bianconeri must now do without the Argentina international, who sustained an injury at the Mapei Stadium; joining a lengthening list of absentees. Today, Max Allegri's squad continue their quest for a first Scudetto in three years against opponents they have recently beaten six times on the spin.
Having kicked off their 2022-23 campaign with victory in the first round of the Coppa Italia - beating Reggina 1-0 earlier this month - Sampdoria found themselves on the wrong end of the result on Serie A's opening day. After last week's loss to Atalanta, Samp will again attempt to halt a steep decline since the turn of the year: in 2022, they have lost more Serie A matches than any other club (13 of 20). However, today - in their third straight home fixture - they must welcome one of Calcio's giants to Marassi.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of today's Serie A clash between Sampdoria and Juventus at Stadio Luigi Ferraris!
