Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini slipped up in the box and was unable to clear a cross, as the ball fell to Raffael. Raffael fed Johnson, who fired a right-footed shot past Gigi Buffon.

However, Stephan Lichsteiner would equalize for Juventus later in the half, as the sides went into the break tied at one.
