Palermo Vs. Juventus: Claudio Marchisio Goal Makes It Interesting

Palermo and Juventus aren't necessarily defending that well, but they're certainly slapping down the "boring Serie A" moniker in emphatic fashion. At the end of an odd sequence where Claudio Marchisio was actually booked for dissent, he's the man who has ultimately scored the Old Lady's first goal to get them back into this match.

Just a couple of minutes before the goal, there appeared to be a handball by Palermo in their own penalty area. The referee apparently disagreed, which Juventus didn't take too well, and they decided to protest, for which Marchisio was shown a yellow card. That decision or lack thereof was quickly made almost moot less than two minutes later. Off of a corner kick, Marchisio slapped a loose ball into the back of the net, making the score 2-1 in favor of Palermo.
