Juventus goes top
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 04 - 10 - 2011

Claudio Marchisio scored a dramatic late brace to give Juventus a 2-0 win over champions AC Milan and take it back to the top of Serie A Sunday.
In the biggest test yet of Juve's title credentials the Turin giant dominated the match against a lackluster and unrecognizable Milan but had to wait until three minutes from time to score a deserved winner.
The result leaves Juve above Udinese, which beat Bologna 2-0, on goals scored heading into the international break. Milan, though, remains hovering above the relegation zone in 15th, just a point above 17th placed neighbor Inter Milan, suffering from a similar early-season crisis.
On 27 minutes Andrea Pirlo, facing his former employers for the first time since his summer move, sent in a free-kick that was too close to Christian Abbiati who punched it clear.
Still Juve poured forward and it wasted a great chance when Marchisio collected Arturo Vidal's dink into the box, took Gianluca Zambrotta out of the game with a sublime first touch but then rushed his shot and didn't trouble Abbiati.
The deadlock was broken when Marchiso went for a one-two with Vucinic and as he ran onto the return pass, Daniele Bonera, in trying to clear the danger, hooked the ball onto Marchisio's foot and beyond Abbiati.
In injury time Marchisio added a second thanks to woeful goalkeeping from Abbiati who let a speculative strike from 25 yards slip between his legs.
Other results: Cesena 0, Chievo Verona 0; Fiorentina 1, Lazio 2; Lecce 0, Cagliari 2; Palermo 2, Siena 0; Parma 3, Genoa 1; Udinese 2, Bologna 0.
