Juventus dominated the game completely but were unable to score until the second half from a penalty by Vucinic who added a second goal several minutes later. Pescara scored a goal from nowhere seven minutes before the end.
Great performance by the Pescara goalkeeper Pelizzoli who stopped the score being 6-1 to Juve again as it was last time these two sides met.
Giovinco was stretchered off having damaged his knee and will not be available for the Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening.
