Though they were the better side for the majority of the patch – Pirlo being Pirlo, 70% possession and 16 shots to just seven for Siena – Juventus was in danger of dropping points. Luckily for them, Claudio Marchisio continues to play at an unbelievable level. After a barrage of pressure was directed at the Robur goal, the hometown kid pounced on a loose ball and slotted it into the back of the net in the 85th minute. Champions do what champions do.
