Juventus 4-0 Verona

Carlos Tevez
Juventus striker Carlos Tevez has scored in each of his three Serie A appearances against Verona

Carlos Tevez scored twice as Serie A leaders Juventus easily beat Verona to move five points clear at the top.

Midfielder Paul Pogba put the hosts ahead in the third minute with a spectacular 25-yard strike.

Tevez doubled their lead soon afterwards with a fine, curling effort after Alvaro Morata's cross.

Giorgio Chiellini set up Roberto Pereyra, who blasted the ball into the net, before Tevez collected Claudio Marchisio's pass to slot a fourth goal.

It was a perfect result for the hosts as they capitalised on nearest title rivals Roma dropping two points in a 1-1 draw at Palermo on Saturday.

Juventus have won the title in each of the last three seasons and halfway through the Italian season are in the perfect position to retain the trophy.

Verona created little and have now conceded 10 goals in four days against Juventus after losing 6-1 in an Italian Cup last-16 tie on Thursday.

Indeed, Juventus's margin of victory could have been wider as Sebastian Giovinco had an effort saved and Chiellini fired wide on an easy day for the Italian champions.
