Donnarumma, however, impressed one and all once again by producing a series of saves. The Argentine fed Pjaca but the latter curled inches past the post.

The Serie A leaders were off and running through defender Medhi Benatia, their unlikely scorer who delightfully controlled the ball on his chest before striking a formidable volley past Milan goalkeeper Donnarumma.

Milan equalised 13 minutes later as Bacca slid winger Gerard Deulofeu's clever pass through the legs of Juventus veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Later, Miralem Pjanic's free-kick was turned onto the bar by Donnarumma and Leonardo Bonucci's header was diverted off target.

But in the closing minutes, Milan lost Jose Sousa to a red card for lashing out at Kwadwo Asamoah before Mattia De Sciglio was penalised for hand ball.

While the manner in which Milan lost in Turin following a controversial injury-time penalty will still hurt, Montella has bigger concerns as he looks ahead to the next game hoping to pick up all three points ahead of the global break.

The win left Juventus 11 points clear of Roma who visit Palermo on Sunday.

But that's where the admiration you should have for this prodigious talent reaches a new level: Donnarumma is clearly committed to Milan although they languish in seventh in Serie A, with an attack that's mustered less goals than Atalanta and Torino.

Juventus will be without Giorgio Chiellini and the suspended Cuadrado as Allegri seems to prefer using Barzagli and Asamoah on the wings over Lichtsteiner and Alex Sandro. "We allowed them to break a little too often but thanks to the technical ability of our players, we created a host of goalscoring chances", the coach told Juventus website.

"It was not easy as [Gianluigi] Donnarumma played brilliantly, making a wonderful save with seconds remaining".

"Dybala did very well to strike the penalty so cleanly", the Juventus coach added.
