Juventus 2-0 Inter Milan

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata

Juventus boosted their bid for a fifth straight Italian Serie A title by beating fifth-placed Inter Milan with two second-half goals in Turin.

Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci fired in a smart far-post volley, shortly after the restart, for the opener.

Substitute Alvaro Morata sealed the win by converting a penalty after he was barged over by Inter defender Miranda.

Juve moved four points clear of second-placed Napoli, who can reduce the gap at fourth-placed Fiorentina on Monday.

Defeat saw Roberto Mancini's inconsistent Inter lose ground in the race to clinch Champions League football next season.

With the top three Serie A teams qualifying, the Nerazzurri are four points behind Fiorentina and five adrift of third-placed Roma.
