Bologna 0-2 Juventus: Bianconeri inch closer to 29th Scudetto
The first chance of the game fell to Bologna after a long ball over the top to Alberto Gilardino who found himself clean through on goal but Gianluigi Buffon made a vital challenge to stop him. The ball then fell to Alessandro Diamanti with the goal gaping but his shot was blocked.
Sebastian Giovinco came close in the 17th minute after a great peace of skill but the keeper got down well and made a comfortable save. Arturo Vidal then came close just a minute later after good work from Vucinic but the Chilean blasted over.
The Bianconeri almost broke the deadlock ten minutes before the break after excellent work on the right wing by Simone Padoin who then crossed for Vucinic in the six yard box but he failed to make contact with the ball.
Vidal was presented with a golden chance on the stroke of half time when Juventus broke quickly and the midfielder found himself one on one with Gianluca Curci but again he failed to hit the target.
Giovinco came close again just one minute into the second half after he turned his man and hit a curling shot which went inches wide.
The home side thought they had took the lead on the 51st minute after a brilliant free kick into the box from Diamanti which Gilardino headed into the bottom corner but it was correctly called offside by the linesman.
The champions fired back with a chance of their own just minutes later again through Giovinco. The Italian international found space in the box but fired straight at the keeper.
The Bianconeri eventually broke the deadlock on the hour mark thanks to Vucinic. Naldo got far too tight and the Montenegrin rolled the defender and slotted the ball into the corner.
The champions secured the three points with 20 minutes to go after a superb move and finish from Marchisio. He played a one two with Vucinic and the Italian coolly put the ball through the goalkeepers legs with the outside of his boot.
The Rossoblu nearly pulled a goal back with five minutes to go. Diamanti struck the ball well from the free kick but Buffon managed to punch it away to safety.
