Juventus make a winning start to the defence of the Serie A title. An own goal by keeper Francesco Bardi in the 6th minute keeps them in the lead to the end of the game. Kingsley Coman puts on a stirring performance on his debut while Arturo Vidal shows no sign of knee injury which kept him out most of last season. Juventus show dominance of the game when Carlos Tevez hits the cross-bar in the 42nd minute but almost paying for missing their chances, the 77th minute attempt by Chievo when Maxi Lopez finds the ball at his feet but slightly slips while shooting keeps them in the lead. Allegri:
There are good signs, I’m happy enough, But there is a lot to improve. I was more worried than angry at the end. We should have closed the match and instead we risked them equalizing.
