Juventus 1-0 Genoa

Carlos Tevez
Carlos Tevez is the top scorer in Serie A, with 16 league goals for Juventus

Carlos Tevez continued his fine form with his 24th goal of the season as Juventus beat Genoa to stay 14 points clear at the top of Serie A.

Tevez, 31, scored twice in Juve's Champions League win in Dortmund in midweek and was the key man again.

The former Manchester City forward broke the deadlock by weaving into the penalty area and firing in off the underside of the crossbar.

He also had a second-half penalty saved but Juve held on to win comfortably.

Juve were without influential midfielder Paul Pogba - starting a two-month injury lay-off - but still had enough to see off Genoa.

Tevez's brilliant individual goal put them on course for a 20th league win of the season and Massimiliano Allegri's side look set for a fourth title in a row.

Juve temporarily extended their lead at the top of the table but in Sunday evening's match Daniele De Rossi scored as Roma beat Cesena 1-0 to close the gap again.
