City eventually broke the deadlock 10 minutes after the halftime break when Vincent Kompany's towering header deflected in off Giorgio Chiellini, who was credited with an own goal.
The hosts should have extended their moments later but Buffon denied Sterling in a one-on-one situation, before the Juventus goalkeeper denied Silva from close range.
The Serie A champions did managed to level matters in the 70th minute when Mario Mandzukic turned home Paul Pogba's cross at the near post.

City tried to hit back in the 88th minute through Yaya Toure but Buffon was on hand to deny the Ivorian with a fine save to ensure Juventus walk away with the three points.
