Commentary

That's all from us, we hope you enjoyed the crazy end to that game as much as we did. For many more like it, we'll see you again soon!
Bonucci's later equaliser denied Salernitana an historic victory, though they were spared by a late Juve winner being chalked off. A draw means Juve remain unbeaten and still in eighth place, while Salernitana also stay unmoved in 10th. Victory would have put them level on points with their illustrious opponents.
He didn't manage to get an assist or score his fifth goal in five Serie A games, but so much of Juve's play came through Dusan Vlahovic that he was an integral cog in their comeback from 2-0 down. He had five shots, four of which came from just eight touches in the box, also managing to complete two key passes. He won eight of a game-high 15 duels, as well as winning four fouls, and his runs into space pulled Salernitana's back three all over the place, albeit he was flagged offside four times. Star.
Well, how about that for an end to the game!! After Bremer's well-taken header got Juve back into it, the Old Lady pressed on, winning a penalty right at the death which levelled the scores at 2-2 following Sepe's initial save. Milik thought he'd won it with a late header from a corner, but after he'd been sent off for a second booking amidst wild celebrations, VAR intervened and chalked his goal off! Chaos ensued, with Cuadrado and Fazio soon following him down the tunnel, as a bright and energetic game sadly descended into madness!
90' + 12' FULL-TIME: JUVENTUS 2-2 SALERNITANA.
90' + 11' Fagioli concedes a late corner, but the delivery from the visitors comes to nothing, and that should be that!
J. Sambia
T. Vilhena
Salernitana
90' + 10' Vilhena also comes off for the visitors, with Junior Sambia his replacement.
N. Gyömbér
E. Botheim
Salernitana
90' + 10' To take up some time, Botheim is withdrawn not long after coming on, and is replaced by Norbert Gyomber.
90' + 7' NO GOAL!!! The VAR review of the goal, at the behest of angry Salernitana players, shows that a final touch came off an offside Bonucci, and so the goal is chalked off!! What late drama here!!!
F. Fazio
Red Card
Salernitana
90' + 6' REDS ALL ROUND!!! It's completely erupted here, with Fazio and Cuadrado in the centre of an all-in scuffle, and the Salernitana captain is sent off!!!
90' + 6' RED CARD!!! Milik raced into the stands following that potential winner, and for that he's shown a second booking and is sent off!
J. Cuadrado
Red Card
Juventus
90' + 6' Cuadrado follows Fazio down the tunnel, as the end to this game erupts into the realms of farcical!
90' + 5' HAVE THEY WON IT??? The corner is swung in towards the front post, where Milik races towards, gets a glance on the ball, and heads it into the far corner!!! Pandemonium in the stands, because as it stands, it's 3-2 to Juventus!!!
90' + 4' SAVED!!! Cuadrado dribbles inside from the left before teeing up Fagioli, whose low, first-time effort is parried wide by an off-guard Sepe!
90' + 3' BLOCKED!!! Back come the visitors and Candreva's cut-back is met by Kastanos. He shoots low with his left, but Bremer blocks the potential winner!
L. Bonucci
Goal
Juventus
90' + 3' GOOOAAALLL!!! We are level!!! Sepe's brilliant save didn't put off Bonucci, who volleys in the rebound with his left foot to lock up the scores at 2-2!!
L. Bonucci
Penalty Miss
Juventus
90' + 3' Bonucci has missed his penalty, but is following in here!
L. Sepe
Penalty Save
Salernitana
90' + 3' Bonucci steps up, but his shot to the bottom left is saved by Sepe!!!
90' + 1' PENALTY!!!! It looks to be a no brainer, and could well rescue Juve a draw!! Cuadrado skips into the box but is dispossessed, but Vilhena lunges in at the loose ball, catching Sandro late and the referee points straight to the spot!!
90' We'll play four minutes of added time, and can Salernitana hold on to their lead??
89' OVER!!! Juve build an attack in increasing number but at a slowing speed, until the ball comes to Milik on the edge of the box. He takes a touch, then shoots, with his effort beating Sepe before clearing the crossbar, just!
88' SAVED!! Bonazzoli skips past Miretti and races down the byline, beating Sandro before blasting an effort straight at Perin, which he parries behind for a corner!!
87' CHANCE!!! Cuadrado, playing on the opposite flank, crosses to the back post. Sandro, doing the same, smashes a volley back across the face of goal, but Milik can't quite reach the back post to put the ball in the net!!
86' Juve have tested Sepe much more significantly than in the first half, but unless they're again able to find the cutting edge and execution that brought about Bremer's goal, they're destined to pick up their first loss of the season.
M. Soulé
W. McKennie
Juventus
85' McKennie's the next off for the Bianconeri, and is replaced by young Argentine forward Matias Soule Malvano.
A. Milik
Yellow Card
Juventus
83' After being crowded out of shooting space, Milik loses the ball and I Granata look to break, but Milik holds Vilhena back so he can't receive a pass, and is penalised and booked.
F. Bonazzoli
B. Dia
Salernitana
81' Dia has also impressed up top alongside Piatek and later Botheim, but is replaced by Federico Bonazzoli.
G. Kastanos
G. Maggiore
Salernitana
81' Maggiore has kept things ticking over in midfield for the visitors, and comes off now for Grigoris Kastanos.
80' OVER!!! After Vlahovic is fouled by Daniliuc, Paredes steps up to the free-kick, but hits a curling, 25-yard effort over the bar!!!
79' SAVED!!! Dia cuts inside and surges across the edge of the box, evading Paredes before firing low into the bottom corner, but Perin gets across to save it!!
Danilo
F. Kostić
Juventus
78' An odd substitution from Allegri sees him bring off Kostic, who has created much of Juve's best play and set up Bremer's goal, for Danilo, who is more accustomed to playing defensively.
78' Sandro is found by his opposite full-back Cuadrado and has a shot from some 35 yards, but really snatches at his effort and it's curling wildly away from the target.
77' Bronn carries it forward and tries his luck from 40 yards, but he drags his effort low, and well wide of the goal.
76' OVER!!! Juve recycle possession from the earlier chance, and Cuadrado finds Vlahovic. He fires an effort from the edge of the box, that shaves the crossbar on its way over!!!
75' BLOCKED!!! Kostic's cross is deflected towards Sepe, who climbs through the crowd of players to punch it away. It lands near Cuadrado, who blasts an effort goalwards, but it's blocked by Fazio!
74' WIDE!!! Oh so close for Juve as Vlahovic picks out Milik in the box. He cuts onto his left foot, before firing a curling effort that beats Sepe all ends up, but can't quite curl inside the right post and goes behind!
L. Sepe
Yellow Card
Salernitana
72' Sepe takes his time, and then some, to take the following goal-kick, and the referee soon holds up a yellow card to warn him about any further time-wasting.
72' WIDE!!! Kostic crosses from the touchline towards the front post, where Milik's glancing header flies just wide!!!
70' Kostic is on his haunches after picking up a knock, but after a short assessment, the referee calls play on as Juve have the ball.
68' WIDE!!! Kostic's low cross is half-cleared by the visitors, before Paredes picks the ball up on the edge of the box and smashes a shot low and just wide!
67' Vilhena attempts a strike from long-range, but a deflection skews the ball away from its intended target and Perin cleans up.
65' SAVED!!! Fagioli races through midfield before feeding Vlahovic, who cuts back onto his left foot and fires a curling effort from the edge of the box, which is tipped wide by Sepe!
64' Sandro slides straight through the back of Botheim as the Salernitana substitute looks to turn in possession, and the Juventus substitute is penalised, but not booked.
N. Fagioli
F. Miretti
Juventus
62' Miretti started the game brightly but has faded since the visitors took the lead, and is replaced now by Nicolo Fagioli.
Alex Sandro
M. De Sciglio
Juventus
62' Max Allegri rings the changes for Juve now, bringing off De Sciglio for the more attacking Alex Sandro in the left-back position.
E. Botheim
K. Piątek
Salernitana
61' The leaders make their first change of the match, with Piatek, whose goal is the difference at the moment, replaced up top by Erik Botheim.
60' CHANCE!!! Bonucci's long, long ball from deep lands right on the toe of Miretti rushing towards goal, but a poor first touch takes away the opportunity to shoot and the chance goes begging!
58' Kostic steps inside Candreva and finds Miretti on the run, but his attempt to round Bronn sees him take a poor touch and put the ball out for a goal kick.
57' Dia is the first Salernitana player to have scored three goals in the club's first five games in a Serie A season - the fastest to reach four goals with this team at the start of a Serie A championship was Sebastiano Vaschetto after 13 games in 1947/48.
K. Piątek
Yellow Card
Salernitana
55' Dia does brilliantly to evade challenge after challenge on his way forward, but after his wide ball is deflected into the air, Piatek catches Bonucci late as the two contest it and the goalscorer is booked.
54' Paredes gets into space and attempts a piledriving shot from 30 yards, but it's blocked by Maggiore before it even reaches the box.
F. Fazio
Yellow Card
Salernitana
53' Fazio's having a long conversation with the referee, and something he's said has clearly upset the official, because a yellow card is brandished against the Salernitana captain.
52' OFF THE POST!!! Vlahovic escapes into space down the left and blasts a cross towards goal. Fazio gets in the way of it, but his hooked clearance bounces back off Sepe's right post and back out again!
F. Kostić
Assist
Juventus
51' What a ball from Kostic, who's cross seemed destined to find the head of Bremer, and very soon after, find the back of the net to get Juventus right back into this game!
Bremer
Goal
Juventus
51' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!! What a header!!! Juve pull one back in brutal style, as Kostic dispossesses Coulibaly down the right and crosses. It’s over Vlahovic, but Bremer arrives late, sending a thumping header bouncing up off the ground and into the top corner!!! 2-1, and it's game on here!!
50' WIDE!!! Paredes floats the ball into the box, and it's chested by McKennie, who attempts a wild overhead kick, but fires wide, injuring himself in the process!
49' Kostic looks to race down the byline and cross, but pressure from Candreva forces a poor touch and he knocks it behind for a goal kick.
47' Paredes whips in a Juventus corner at speed, which both Bonucci and McKennie attack, but neither make a connection with the ball and Salernitana can counter!
46' Vlahovic resumes proceedings, and we're back underway for the second half!
A. Milik
M. Kean
Juventus
46' The booked Kean comes off at half-time, replaced by Arkadiusz Milik, who scored the Bianconeri's goal in their 1-1 draw with Fiorentina last time out.
The teams are back out on the pitch, and do a faltering Juve side have it in them to rescue this game from two goals down?
Piatek's penalty doubled Salernitana's lead, and the Polish striker has been at the hub of all their attacking positivity so far. He's hit the target with two of his four shots, and has been a real handful for Juve's defence, engaging in eight total duels. Five of these came aerially, and he's won four of these, as well as maintaining an 80 per cent passing accuracy in the final third. Target.
What an upset we have on the cards here!!! Juve started brightly, but boy have the visitors looked potent going forward! After Candreva put Salernitana ahead with virtually their first attack of the game, they really turned it on and frequently tested Juve's defence. Right on half-time, Piatek looked to have missed a glorious chance, but Bremer's handball allowed him to step up from the spot and slam home a second, giving the Old Lady a mammoth task to turn this one around!
45' + 5' HALF-TIME: JUVENTUS 0-2 SALERNITANA.
K. Piątek
Penalty Goal
Salernitana
45' + 5' GOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!!! There's number two!!!! Piatek steps up with ice in his veins and smashes the ball into the bottom corner, sending Perin the wrong way and putting Salernitana 2-0 up against Juve!!! What a game this is turning out to be!
Bremer
Yellow Card
Juventus
45' + 4' It's given!!!! The ball did take a nick off Bremer's arm on its way behind, and the Juve defender is booked with Piatek waiting to step up!
45' + 3' VAR is currently checking for a possible Juventus handball in the box during that passage of play, and a penalty would present a glorious chance for the visitors to double their lead!
45' + 2' WIDE!!! Coulibaly dribbles into space down the right before entering the box and squaring for Piatek, who attempts to shoot first time, but he's knocked off balance and the shot curls agonisingly wide of the post with Perin beaten!!
45' + 1' We're into three minutes of added time at the end of this first half.
45' The visitors surge forward on the break, and Dia feeds Vilhena, but before he can release Mazzocchi, he's dispossessed thanks to a perfectly timed and executed sliding tackle from Cuadrado on the edge of his own box!!
44' Kostic finds Vlahovic on the run down the left, and he shoots first-time from a tight angle, dragging his left-footed effort wide of the mark!
42' SAVED!!! A good flick from Dia gives Piatek time and space to shoot, and he looks to find the bottom corner with a curling effort that Perin holds!
41' Juve will want to equalise as soon as they can, particularly given their statistics this season look bleak. Only Spezia have had fewer shots on target in the second half of Serie A games than Juve’s meagre four so far this season, and Spezia are yet to have one!
39' BALL IN THE NET!!! Kean races forward before finding Vlahovic in acres of space. With defenders closing in, he keeps his composure to slot the ball past Bronn and beyond Sepe into the back of the net, but the flag's up and it won't count!!!
G. Maggiore
Yellow Card
Salernitana
38' Maggiore looks to nip in front of Miretti and intercept the ball, but only catches the Juve midfielder and is penalised, before quickly being shown a yellow card.
37' Bremer's leaning into his marker at the corner, and attempts an acrobatic finish that he gets horribly wrong, blazing the ball over the crossbar!
35' CHANCE!!! Vlahovic is bundled over by Coulibaly on the edge of the box, but cleverly takes a quick free-kick to tee up Miretti, but his cut-back towards the six-yard box is hoofed clear by Daniliuc!
34' Candreva scored and delivered an assist in his last away appearance against Juventus in Serie A. His 18th minute goal means he’s the first to score in two consecutive league away appearances at Allianz Stadium was Ante Rebic in 2021.
M. Kean
Yellow Card
Juventus
32' Vilhena looks to get away down the left for the visitors, before being brought to ground by a backtracking Kean. It's a soft foul to give away, and even softer given the striker is shown a yellow card by the referee.
30' CHANCE!!! Candreva whips a beauty of a free-kick into the box, which Piatek very nearly nods home at the back post as the ball swerves behind!! He'd gone straight through the back of Cuadrado to get there though, so the home side get a free-kick.
29' Kostic's throughball looks to have put Vlahovic through in the box, but Maggiore gets across him to win possession superbly and deny the Serb a shooting chance!
L. Paredes
Yellow Card
Juventus
27' Paredes and Piatek contest a loose ball in the air, and the striker is sent flying in the collision, with Juve's Argentine midfielder promptly booked by the referee.
25' Forward come Salernitana on the break again, but after their attack slows it comes to Mazzocchi on the left. He attempts another cross to the back post, but this one is poor and floats over for a goal kick.
24' After Miretti is fouled in midfield, Paredes switches the play to the left from the free-kick. Kostic crosses into the crowded box, but a deflection off Bronn takes it behind for a corner.
22' Miretti is dispossessed in midfield by Maggiore almost straight from kick-off, and Salernitana flood forward once again, but after Coulibaly looks to run down the byline with the ball, he's beaten to it in a tackle by De Sciglio.
20' Hang on a minute... we've gone to VAR, checking a possible handball in either the build-up or scoring of that goal, but after a few views of replays, no changes are made so the goal will stand!
P. Mazzocchi
Assist
Salernitana
18' Having seen one cross headed away by Bonucci just moments earlier, Mazzocchi came back to deliver a perfect cross, taking every Juve defender out of the equation and giving Candreva an easy tap-in!
A. Candreva
Goal
Salernitana
18' GOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!! The visitors strike first!!!! After a decent-looking attack is repelled, Salernitana come back with force, as Mazzocchi dribbles into the left side of the box before firing the ball across goal, and Candreva arrives to finish at the far post!!! 1-0 to the visitors after their first real attack, and Juventus are stunned!!!
17' Juventus have alternated between a draw and a win in their last six Serie A home games, the most recent of which was a 2-0 win against Spezia. The last time they achieved two consecutive home wins in the competition was last March – against Spezia and Salernitana.
15' Miretti is dispossessed on the edge of the box by Coulibaly and the visitors look to break. A long pass aimed towards Dia is overhit though, allowing Bremer to get back and retain the ball.
13' BLOCKED!!! Vlahovic runs off Bronn and is found by McKennie. The defender recovers to force him wide, and blocks the eventual shot from the Juve striker to concede a corner!
12' Miretti carries the ball forward well, before finding Vlahovic into the box. He turns and spreads the ball wide to Kostic, but his cross back into the centre is headed clear by Bronn!
11' Salernitana have lost all six Serie A away games against teams from Piemonte, conceding an average of 3.5 goals per game, and scoring only once, against Torino way back in 1947.
9' SAVED!!! Vlahovic is put through on goal but is forced wide by Daniliuc. Coulibaly wins the ball but a loose touch allows Miretti to shoot, and his low shot is spilled by Sepe before Kean bounces and sees another effort from close-range saved by the goalkeeper!
7' SAVED!!! Miretti cuts inside from the left, beating three defenders on his way into the box, and smashes a low shot which Sepe does very, very well to get down and hold!
6' Miretti looks to create shooting space on the edge of the box, but is bundled over by Vilhena. No free-kick is given, but Kostic attempts a cross from the left and wins his side a corner.
4' CHANCE!!! Mazzocchi beats two defenders down the left and lobs a throughball forward to Piatek. He gets goal-side of Bremer as he races into the box, but he's put off-balance by the Juve defender and blazes wide before going down!
3' Juventus have won four of their previous six Serie A games against Salernitana, keeping five clean sheets in the process.
1' Salernitana kick off via the boot of Piatek, and we're underway in Piemonte!
The teams head out of the tunnel, and kick-off is just moments away here!
Boulaye Dia scored an 88th minute equaliser to rescue Salernitana a 1-1 draw at Bologna, and I Granata’s top scorer starts alongside Krzysztof Piatek up front and will be looking to cause Juventus some problems at the back.
Having been absent from The Old Lady’s 1-1 draw with Fiorentina last time out, Dusan Vlahovic returns to the starting XI for the home side, hoping to add to his four goals in four Serie A games so far this season.
SALERNITANA SUBS: Vincenzo Fiorillo, Domagoj Bradaric, Junior Sambia, Federico Bonazzoli, Erik Botheim, Diego Valencia, Grigoris Kastanos, Norbert Gyomber, Leonardo Capezzi, Andrei Motoc, Antonio Iervolino, Jacopo De Matteis, Lorenzo Pirola.
