    No goalkeeper coming up for this free-kick. Boooooo.

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Juventus are now playing a back five as they look to see this one out. Another free-kick for Empoli as Rodrigo Bentancur barges over Rade Krunic.

  12. Post update

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Empoli hook a long ball into the box - Antonino la Gumina gets a flick to put it into a dangerous area, but no-one is there to take advantage.

    They have a free-kick now, the big lads surely going forward.

  13. Post update

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Empoli's Rade Krunic cuts in from the right wing but his low shot is going wide anyway - with Wojciech Szczesny holding onto it to make sure.

  14. Post update

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Empoli haven't had a good chance in ages. Salih Ucan heads over the bar but wins a corner as the referee says Mattia de Sciglio got a touch.

    Juve aren't happy at the award of a corner, but they get it clear.

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Cristiano Ronaldo briefly considers shooting from 30 yards but instead plays it wide to Alex Sandro. And Empoli end up getting the ball away.

    Empoli bring on forward Antonino la Gumina, who Juventus apparently have first option on. Teenager Hamed Junior Traore is the man replaced.

  17. Post update

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Juve can become the first team to win three times after trailing in Serie A this season. Napoli and Sassuolo have done it twice each.


    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Juventus make a change as winger Douglas Costa comes on for Miralem Pjanic. Juan Cuadrado seems to have gone more central as a result.

  19. Post update

    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Almost a third for Juventus - a good run from Juan Cuadrado down the right and he pulls it across the six-yard box - but it's just behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who applauds the effort.


    Empoli 1-2 Juventus

    Juventus captain Paulo Dybala loses the ball to Rade Krunic and then grabs the Empoli player by the neck. Definite yellow card.
