Juventus and Cesena met in the second half at Turin. Juventus struggled to break down the Cesena offense and lost captain Alessandro Del Piero to a gashed forehead just after the hour mark. Del Piero’s frustrating season continued. He had to leave after just eight minutes of yet another substitute appearance.

But Juve’s Claudio Marchisio broke through in the 72nd minute with his sixth goal of the season.

And 11 minutes later - Goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli punched away a cross, but caught Juventus forward Emanuele Giaccherini with his arm in the process. Antonioli had to be replaced by a defender, because Cesena had used up its substitutions. Juventus won it, 2-0.

In other games, Colombian Victor Ibarbo’s goal gave Cagliari a 1-0 win at Catania. It marked the Sardinians first victory since Davide Ballardini became their third coach of the season. Bologna beat Siena 1-0 while Atalanta held Chievo 0-0. Juventus has 29 points from 13 games, two ahead of AC Milan and Udinese. Novara, Cesena, and Lecce all stayed in the bottom group.
