Federico Bernardeschi opened the scoring in the 56th minute, before Gonzalo Higuain netted in the 86th minute to send Juventus two points clear at the top of the league.

That pressure almost led to a penalty attempt in the 18th minute, when Giorgio Chiellini was called for a hand ball, although the VAR (video assistant referee) overruled the decision and instead signalled the home squad for offside.

Jordan Veretout went up to take the spot-kick but after a three-minute viewing referee Marco Guida instead chose to award the visitors a free-kick for a supposed Benassi offside in the run-up.

"It took a lifetime to decide", said Fiorentina coach Stefano Pioli.

Fiorentina midfielder Marco Benassi was deemed to have been offside moments before Chiellini handled, although replays showed that Juventus defender Alex Sandro had played the ball into the 23-year-old's path.

"Did I understand the referee's decision?"

Of the decision, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said: "The penalty?"

Fiorentina, who remain 11th, hit the post - through Gil Dias - in the first half.

Since losing 3-2 to Sampdoria on 19 November, Juve have recorded 15 shutouts in all competitions - including clean sheets against Barcelona, Napoli, Inter and Roma. "The wait was long and luckily the penalty was taken away, I thought there was a foul on the action before but then many other things are seen on TV", continued Allegri.

The Juve win will provide a boost as they prepare to host Tottenham on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.

"We didn't have a brilliant game, but we didn't concede either". Fiorentina (31 points) is now 11th in Serie A with 24 of 38 matches played.
