Wow, this is not a good day for Juventus. Not only are they failing to regularly trouble Francesco Antonioli in the Cesena goal, but they've now lost il capitano after less than ten minutes of play. Alessandro Del Piero suffered a nasty collision with the boot of Marco Rossi, landing facedown and requiring a stretcher to leave the pitch. Closeups on Del Piero revealed blood streaming through his fingers and staining his hands.
In response, Claudio Marchisio has finally put the ball in the back of the net, neatly turning round a Cesena defender and firing in by the near post. While that should help ease the Old Lady's pain, you can bet they'll still be braying for the head of Rossi, ideally served on a silver platter. It's not like Del Piero has had much playing time this season. To have him on for but eight minutes almost makes it worse.
