Rome, Feb 8: Juventus defeated AC Milan 3–1 to build up a 10–point lead at the Italian Serie A. It was Juventus’ second consecutive win against Milan and the victory gave Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who was sacked by Milan more than a year ago, a sweet revenge, Xinhua reported on Saturday. “We had a good game but after we went ahead we were a bit weak. We suffered too much from Milan’s deadball situations. We have to improve that attitude,” Allegri said.
Carlos Tevez opened the scoring in the 14th minute and although Luca Antonelli levelled in his first match back at Milan, Leordo Bonucci restored Juve’s advantage moments later. Alvaro Morata sealed the result in the 65th as Juventus continued to march toward a fourth successive title. Milan, who have lost four of their past five matches, remained in eighth position.
Earlier, Torino beat Hellas Vero 3–1 for its fourth successive victory. Second–placed Roma will visit Cagliari Sunday, and the Parma–Chievo Vero match was postponed to Wednesday as much of northern Italy was covered by heavy snowfall recently. IANS
