Juventus vs Milan

Marko Pjaca is expected to stand in for Cuadrado.

The Turin side was by far the better side over the course of the game and eventually made its dominance count, though Milan may feel aggrieved by the nature of referee Massa's penalty decision.

And as expected, the home side dominated proceedings with Dybala at the heart of nearly every move, but Milan's young goalkeeper Gianlugi Donnarumma was proving hard to beat.

But Dybala was rather more confrontational - brushing off Milan concerns.

Juve weren't to be denied for long, however, opening the scoring via an unlikely source in Benatia.

Juventus broke the deadlock in the 30th minute in a counter-attack which saw a Dani Alves' chip being controlled by Morocco defender Benatia before firing it home beating Donnarumma on the right.

Napoli fans held aloft a banner ironically saying "It's a penalty for Juve!" whenever the referee blew his whistle during their 3-0 win over Crotone on Sunday, and their president Aurelio De Laurentiis said that gesture summed up the general feeling in Italian footballthat the defending champions have been on the receiving end of refereeing favours.

In BJP's UP, BSP leader Mohammad Shami shot dead in Allahabad
Mohammad Shami had recently joined Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) after leaving Samajwadi Party (SP), where he served for 20 years. Police officials have said that different teams of the crime branch have been set on investigating the case.

Both teams went into the tunnel level at half-time at the Juventus Stadium in Italy.

The 18-year-old Milan goalkeeper produced a superb double save when he parried Sami Khedira's shot and then tipped Gonzalo Higuaín's effort round a post from the rebound.

Milan were down to 10 men by that time after José Sosa was sent off for a vicious sliding tackle.

Dybala stepped up and scored a textbook spot-kick, winning the game with virtually the last kick of the game and despite Donnarumma guessing the direction, for once the keeper could not do anything.

Milan is in seventh with 50 points.

Juventus has a fairly commanding eight-point lead in the Serie A table entering the weekend. There are encouraging signs for Montella's men and qualifying for the Champions League might be hard to accomplish, they can definitely qualify for the Europa League.
