    Follow us on Social Media

    Fabio Quagliarella scored twice and had another clear goal not given by the referee in Juventus' 3-1 win at Catania in Serie A on Sunday.
    Simone Pepe put Juventus in front in the 35th minute in Sicily, but Japan forward Takayuki Morimoto equalized two minutes later before Quagliarella took over.
    First, in the 43rd, the Italy striker banged in a shot off the crossbar and down over the goal line. But after consulting with his linesman, the referee ruled it was not a goal. However, replays clearly showed the ball landed over the line and inside the goal.

    The decision was reminiscent of when Frank Lampard was denied a goal for England against Germany at this year's World Cup.
    Quagliarella responded by scoring an undisputed goal a minute later with an angled shot from within the area following a cross from Vincenzo Iaquinta, who also set up Pepe's score.
    Then in the 58th, Quagliarella caught the goalkeeper out of position and launched a long-range shot for his eighth goal this season.
    The victory kept Juventus within six points of Serie A leader AC Milan.
    Milan leads with 33 points, Lazio is next with 30, Juventus has 27 and Napoli 24.
