Juventus lead 1-0 at half time in their game with Cesena, but the Italian champions have had opportunities to add to their advantage.
The Bianconeri were ahead after 18 minutes after they were awarded a penalty for a handball by Emmanuel Cascione.
The home side had looked the likelier to score in the opening minutes after dominating possession and enjoying more attacking opportunities than their opponents.
Indeed, Cesena's only attack of note in the opening 30 minutes came when Francesco Renzetti broke from full-back before squeezing in a cross, which Juve's defence turned behind for a corner.
With the interval approaching, Giovinco unleashed a fizzing drive from the edge of the box that was inches away from finding the back of the visitors' net.
Juventus came into the game behind leaders Roma in the Serie A table on goal difference.
