Juventus forward Carlos Tevez in action against Lazio
Carlos Tevez has scored in three of his four Serie A clashes against Lazio

Juventus moved 15 points clear at the top of Serie A with a comfortable victory over second-placed Lazio.

Argentina striker Carlos Tevez put Massimo Allegri's team in front with a left-foot drive for his 18th goal of the season.

Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci made it 2-0 when he fired in from 18 yards after Lazio's defence backed off.

Lazio ended the match with 10 men as Danilo Cataldi was sent off for a challenge on Tevez.

The defeat ended Lazio's 10-mach unbeaten sequence and leaves them a point above fierce rivals Roma, who are third.

Roma, who have played one match fewer than their neighbours, host Atalanta on Sunday.

Juventus, who have seven league games left and are closing in on their fourth successive title, meet Lazio in the Italian Cup final on 6 June.
