The eight-time titleholders were easily the superior team in the first half and they managed to break the deadlock in the 42nd-minute, thanks to Matthijs de Ligt.

Juventus are very much on course to win the title with 80 points from 35 games. On Sunday, Juve takes on Sampodaria and could seal the title there and then.
“We lost a bit of order,” Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri after the match. “We lost in the 93rd minute because we were trying to win at any cost.”
“This season is difficult, all the teams are playing in conditions different to the usual ones and everyone is tired,” said Sarri.
