The visitors came closest to scoring in the first half when defender Mattia Bani rose to meet Albert Gumundsson's cross with a header, only for Wojciech Szczesny to make a brilliant save.

Federico Gatti then struck in the 27th minute with a low shot from 25 yards, but the ball landed in the safe hands of Josep Martinez.

Juventus returned with much more urgency after the interval, with substitute Samuel Iling-Junior nearly scoring from the edge of the box but he hit the woodwork.

The host's biggest chance came in the 75th minute from Vlahovic, who had returned from suspension, but he headed the ball just over the crossbar. Vlahovic picked up a booking in added time and then was shown a second yellow for dissent.
