Juventus drub Roma

ROME, Sep 30, 2012, Reuters: 23:35 IST
Juventus scored three goals in the opening 19 minutes to destroy AS Roma 4-1 and move three points clear in Serie A on Saturday.

AC Milan's poor start to the season continued as they produced a patchy performance in a 1-1 draw at Parma, a result that failed to ease the pressure on coach Massimiliano Allegri.
Champions Juventus are now nine points ahead of Milan as their long unbeaten run continued. They have avoided defeat in their last 45 league matches.

Andrea Pirlo's deflected free-kick gave them the lead after 10 minutes although Roma's players protested that the free-kick should not have been awarded, with TV replays showing there was no contact between Rodrigo Taddei and Claudio Marchisio.

Juventus took advantage and doubled their lead five minutes later when confusion in the Roma box led to Leandro Castan blocking Alessandro Matri's shot with his hand and giving away a penalty which Artur Vidal calmly slotted home.

Three minutes later Matri took advantage of a sloppy defensive line to stride on to a Vidal through ball and lift a deft finish past Maarten Stekelenburg.
