It could have been worse, but it also could have been much better.

First half

Pretty much all Juventus, honestly, as the Bianconeri held Fiorentina without a shot in the first period. Sami Khedira motored into the box and headed home a Giorgio Chiellini cross to give the hosts a 36' lead.

Second half

Fiorentina pushed forward a bit more, and Nikola Kalinic eventually rose to head home a Josip Ilicic corner to equalize for the visitors.

The lead didn't last long, though, as Gonzalo Higuain reacted quickest to a deflected shot in the box and tucked it past Ciprian Tatarusanu to regain the lead.

Scorers

Juventus: Khedira 36' (ass. Chiellini), Higuain 75'

Fiorentina: Kalinic 70' (ass. Ilicic)
