Juventus made sure they will finish 2014 as leaders of Serie A by beating Cagliari 3-1 on Thursday.

Carlos Tevez scored from close range - his 10th goal of the season - before Arturo Vidal netted a superb first-time curling shot into the corner.

Fernando Llorente turned and fired home after half-time to make it 3-0 before Luca Rossettini headed in for Cagliari, who remain in the relegation zone.

Juve are four points clear of Roma, who host AC Milan on Saturday.
