Juventus 3 – Catania 1 (Serie A, February 18, 2012) Pablo Barrientos curled a low shot past Gianluigi Buffon for 1-0 to Catania in the 4th minute. Juve equalised on 22, Andrea Pirlo curling home a fine free-kick. The sending off of Marco Motta midway through the second half allowed The Old Lady to pile on the pressure and Giorgio Chiellini made it 2-1 on 74.
