Juventus v ChievoVerona

A defeat in terms of result but not in terms of performance is how the match between the Gialloblù and league leaders Juventus can be assessed. The 2-0 scoreline came thanks to Higuain's two goals but Pellissier and his teammates can hold their heads high as they stayed in the match right to the end. Despite the first-half advantage Pellissier came close to equalising, as did Inglese in the second half. Higuain's second goal came from a Lichtsteiner assist. Chievo now look immediately to their next match, on Saturday away to Cagliari.
