Defending champion Juventus extended its unbeaten streak to 48 games with a 1-0 win at 10-man Catania in Serie A on Sunday after the Sicilian visitors had a goal disallowed.
Catania thought it had taken a first-half lead when Gonzalo Bergessio fired in but the strike was disallowed. The reason was not immediately unclear _ either offside or a handling offence.
Catania president Antonino Pulvirenti was sent from the bench and in the ensuing five minutes five of its players were booked.
To add insult to injury, Nicklas Bendtner was in an offside position in the buildup to Arturo Vidal's second-half goal.
Giovanni Marchese was sent off after receiving his second booking to cap a miserable day for Catania.
