Juventus 1-0 Sassuolo

Paulo Dybala celebrates scoring
Juventus have won 18 and drawn one of their last 19 Serie A games

Juventus moved six points clear at the top of Serie A as Gianluigi Buffon set a new club record by keeping a 10th consecutive league clean sheet.

Paulo Dybala curled in off the inside of the post for his 14th goal of the season to ruin Sassuolo's hopes of a league double over the champions.

The win - against the last team to beat them in Serie A - strengthens Juve's pursuit of a fifth straight title.

Second-placed Napoli travel to Palermo on Sunday.
