Juventus' frantic finish puts them 12 ahead of Napoli, Buffon is a monster

24 April at 22:41
For those of you who were wondering why Juventus are crushing everyone in Serie A right now, the following videos may provide some helpful indication. 

With defender Leonardo Bonucci committing a shocking howler to allow Nikola Kalinic to equalise on 81 minutes, it looked like the Old Lady was in for a hellish ten minute siege, all to defend a precious point earned at the Artemio Franchi. 

But Juventus had other ideas. Earning a corner straight from kick-off, they caught the Viola with their pants down... and smashed in the winner courtesy of Patrice Evra and finisher Alvaro Morata, who had recently replaced Paulo Dybala. As if peeved that his team-mates had proved that the best form of defence was attack, legendary Bianconeri goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon later saved his team's bacon when Kalinic was controversially awarded a penalty near the end of regulation. 

Stepping up to the spot, the Croatian placed a decent finish to his right... only to see Italy's own goalkeeping giant swoop down on the ball and bat it away. 

There's no point wondering why this team has earned 73 of a possible 75 points, or why it's close to winning its fifth straight Scudetto, is there?
