As they say, fortune favours the brave, and Juventus certainly put themselves out there in a bid to draw level. They kept plugging away till the 40th minute when Brescia's Jhon Chancellor, unfortunately (and fortunately for the Bianconeri) bundled Paulo Dybala's corner kick over the line.

That equaliser came at a perfect period in the game, as it gave the champions a breather ahead of halftime, and Maurizio Sarri was able to fire up his charges ahead of the 2nd half.

Cometh the hour, cometh the man! Juventus were without Cristiano Ronaldo, and Juventus were expected to miss their Portuguese talisman somewhat. However, Miralem Pjanic had other ideas.

The Old Lady was on the verge of another draw, as the resilient Brescia defence continually brushed off the champions' constant incursions into their box.

Eventually, Paulo Dybala was awarded a freekick from 20 yards out. The Argentine took the freekick and his effort hit the wall, rebounding onto the path of Miralem Pjanic who sent a precise shot into the bottom left corner and past a bewildered Jesse Joronen for the winner.
