Pre-match

Antonio Conte handed starts to Wojciech Szczęsny, Daniele Rugani, Stefano Sturaro, and Rodrigo Betancur as he heavily rotated his side. Stefano Pioli sent out his expected XI except for Vincent Laurini at rightback.

First half

Juventus had all of the ball and all of the territory but didn’t really make any chances as the Fiorentina defense sat deep and repelled every attack.

Second half

Just 5 minutes into the period, substitute Mario Gaspar switched off on the back post, allowing Mario Mandžukić a free header from a Juan Cuadrado cross, and the Croat struck home.

Full time

Goals: Mandžukic 52’ (ass. Cuadrado)

Bookings: Barzagli 23’, Laurini 37’, Badelj 50’, 66’ (sent off 66’), Astori 64’
