Juventus 0-1 AC Milan
The Serie A champions had to fight their way back to within touching distance of their goal with only 10 minutes remaining when Andrea Pirlo’s strike hit the post.
The Nerazzurri had a goal disallowed and then were forced to concede two goals after Gianluigi Buffon’s cross hit the bar.
A third goal came when Carlos Tevez put the Nerazzurs ahead for the first time when he turned the ball in.
The home side went into the break level and could have doubled their lead when Leonardo Bonucci’s volley hit the crossbar.
But Antonio Candreva saved from Andrea Pigni and the home side held on.
Milan, who had been chasing a first win over AC Milan since 2007, will have the satisfaction of finally winning their second successive league game after losing their opening two.
It has been an awful few days, and we’re very proud of our team for sticking together.
They have the best chance of winning tonight, it’s up to us to get the win.
