Juventus taking the lead in the 52nd minute.  The action started by forward Mario Mandzukik hitting the bar with a headed shot after getting the assist by Colombian midfielder Juan Manuel Cuadrado.   Here is the situation.  Empoli goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski maybe attempting to save, but the point, is that the ball after hitting the bar was involuntarily deviated inside the net by Skorupski on his attempt to save.

In the 65th minute, there is the goal by Alex Sandro defeating goalkeeper Skorupski with a left footed shot in the bottom right corner.   The assist is by defender Dani Alves with a cross.
