The end

So thanks for joining us today.

Tomorrow's European live text action starts earlier than usual as Real Madrid host Granada at 11:00 BST.

Then at 20:00 BST, Barcelona visit Celta Vigo and Marseille host Ligue 1 title rivals Marseille.

We're now at the stage when we can start to plot how many games until Juventus wrap up the title. They are 14 points clear with nine games to go. So five more wins and they're champions - even fewer if Roma or Lazio drop points.

Of course, Juventus are probably more focused on other tournaments now. They face Fiorentina on Tuesday in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg - they lost the first leg 2-1.

And in 10 days' time it's Monaco in the Champions League quarter-final.

Juventus fan Rishi Verma: Now at the business end of the season, and the Scudetto within reach, it's all about points - irrespective of the performance.

FULL-TIME

Juventus 2-0 Empoli

Juventus go 14 points clear of Roma at the top of the table but it was far from the most comfortable victory they've had.

GOAL

Juventus 2-0 Empoli - Roberto Pereyra

Carlos Tevez turns a defender 35 yards from goal, charges forward and has a go from the edge of the box. Luigi Sepe saves it but substitute Roberto Pereyra buries the rebound.

INJURY TIME

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Five minutes of injury time. Empoli are down to 10 men as Simone Verdi - who was one of the players on the ground - is unable to continue. The other, Matias Vecino, is fine to play on and fouls Alvaro Morata.

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Two Empoli players down on the ground injured on different parts of the pitch.

It almost looks like they're identical twins where one is feeling the other's pain but I think the were both tackled in separate indcidents.

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Actually Arturo Vidal can't continue, he's replaced by Simone Pepe.

Juventus are running out of midfield options with a Champions League quarter-final against Monaco coming up.

Juventus are starting to be sloppy at the back now, conceding possession to Empoli several times.

Arturo Vidal hoofs the ball away and he appears to have hurt himself while landing. He limps off the pitch. Not a good sign for the Champions League quarter-finalists with Paul Pogba, Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio currently sidelined.

Luckily the Chilean can play on.

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

And now Empoli have a corner after Angelo Ogbonna does well to tackle Riccardo Saponara, who has been one of the Blues' best players today.

The corner comes in and takes a deflection which sees it land in Gianluigi Buffon's arms.

TEN TO GO

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Juventus could make it 2-0 as Carlos Tevez plays the ball to Arturo Vidal and continues his run into the box in space looking for the return. However the Chilean midfielder fancies a go himself but his shot is wide.

The hosts are dominant but still only lead by one.

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Empoli make a final change - Simone Verdi on and Manuel Pucciarelli off.

Now Juventus make their second swap, Roberto Pereyra replaces Stefano Sturaro in midfield.

Why make two changes together when you can spread them out by 30 seconds? Empoli bring on Piotr Zielinski for Daniele Croce in midfield.

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Corner to Juventus as Patrice Evra gets the ball in the box but Daniele Rugani blocks him and it's out for a corner.

Empoli bring off Middlesbrough legend Massimo Maccarone and Georgia international Levan Mchedlidze replaces him up top.

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Alvaro Morata, a summer signing from Real Madrid, has scored seven goals in 22 Serie A appearances this season.

Real have the option to re-sign the 22-year-old this summer, but he says he wants to stay with Juve.

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Juventus bring on Alvaro Morata but they only have one space for a Spanish striker in their team so he replaces Fernando Llorente.

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Pass. Pass. Pass. Pass. Pass. Juventus in total control at the moment.

Stephan Lichtsteiner

Juventus break at pace and in numbers, the ball ends up to right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner but his cross is poor when he should have found Carlos Tevez - who has been central to most of Juventus's moves tonight.

I asked what that banner three entries ago was about and you didn't disappoint.

Francesco from Holloway Rd: Those are the Droogs (clockwork orange) - that's how the Juve hardcore fans in Italy call themselves.

Stan in Pemberton: The flag represents the Juventus Ultras, who refer to themselves as the 'drughi' aka the droogs from A Clockwork Orange.

Empoli coach Maurizio Sarri was enjoying a smoke on the sidelines before the game. Can't really imagine a Premier League manager doing that.

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Empoli have a couple of chances. Riccardo Saponara has a shot which is saved by Gianluigi Buffon. And then moments later Manuel Pucciarelli gets his head to a long ball forward and Buffon - near the edge of his box - saves it for a corner.

Much better from the Blues.

Anyone have any ideas what this Juventus banner is about? I haven't been so confused since that Dortmund fan earlier had a sign about three eggs.

YELLOW CARD

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez is booked for pulling back Daniele Croce as Empoli attempted to counter-attack.

From the free-kick, the visitors engineer a chance which Matias Vecino blazes over.

KICK-OFF

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

It's second half time.

Italian Serie A

With no Serie A action on Easter Sunday, the whole round of fixtures have been today.

Roma celebrate
Reuters

Roma strengthened their hold on a Champions League spot thanks to a 1-0 victory over Napoli, who are also chasing a European place.

Miralem Pjanic scored the only goal after 25 minutes to move them temporarily within 11 points of Juve.

Roma are now seven points clear of fourth place after Sampdoria lost 2-0 at Fiorentina, conceding twice in three second-half minutes.

Former West Ham midfielder Alessandro Diamanti opened the scoring before on-loan Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah added a second to lift La Viola into fourth, above Sampdoria, who remain a point ahead of Rafael Benitez's Napoli.

Jeremy Menez scored a late winner as AC Milan beat fellow mid-table side Palermo 2-1.

Roberto Mancini's Inter Milan were held 1-1 by bankrupt Parma, who have been funded by the Italian league to see out their fixtures.

Cesena came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at Verona in the most entertaining game of the day.

Torino beat Atalanta 2-1, Lazio saw off Cagliari 3-1, Genoa and Udinese drew 1-1 and Sassuolo beat Chievo 1-0.

The stats speak for themselves. Juventus are dominant.

Johnny Di Girolamo: Juventus would walk the Premier League. Like Italy v England the other night, UK teams have no brains, just physique.

Ah come on now Johnny, I'm no Premier League apologist but I don't think Juventus would beat Chelsea over 38 games. Also the top English clubs are much better than the England national team.

HALF-TIME

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Injury time? Not for this ref? It's half-time after 45 minutes.

Juventus 1-0 Empoli

Moments later Carlos Tevez comes forward in a bid to make it 2-0 but his effort is saved by Luigi Sepe.

GOAL

Juventus 1-0 Empoli - Carlos Tevez

Seemed a poor decision to me but Arturo Vidal touches the ball and Carlos Tevez absolutely rifles it into the top of the net from eight yards out.

It was never on purpose, Daniele Rugani was just trying to get a touch on the ball.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

He won't be so happy with that, Empoli have just conceded an indirect free-kick for a pass-back as Daniele Rugani - on loan from Juventus - tries to tackle and the ball ends up in his keeper's hands. Harsh.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

Massimo Maccarone has Empoli's best chance of the game as he finds space 14 yards out but his shot is into the sidenetting when he should have fired it across Gianluigi Buffon.

Empoli boss Maurizio Sarri will be happy with what he's seen.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

When did clubs start naming their stadiums after themselves?

Juventus Stadium, Cardiff City Stadium. A cynic would suggest they're holding names until a sponsor comes in.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

Empoli have a corner which breaks to Mario Rui and the defender tries his luck from about 35 yards. Unfortunately for him his shot skews wide. Not actually a bad effort though.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

A lofted ball comes into the box and Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal tries to chest it but my main man, Stephan Lichtsteiner, kind of barges into the back of him and takes a shot from the fallout which is easily saved by Luigi Sepe.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

Empoli come forward for a rare attack and Massimo Maccarone does well to hold the ball off and lay it to Riccardo Saponara, who either takes a shot or a cross - I'm not sure which it was but it was a bad version of whatever it was meant to be and the attack is wasted.

Michael Glasper: This is Italian football in a nutshell. Dull, competent, tidy but ultimately not very interesting.

Where do we think Juventus would finish in the Premier League? Top four contenders at best, I reckon. Maybe similar enough to Arsenal.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

Stephan Lichtsteiner

Stephan Lichtsteiner, one of the best full-backs around in my eyes, crosses in and Arturo Vidal heads wide. This game is starting to come to life now.

Juventus 0-0 Empoli

Juventus starting to create chances with attacking right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner heavily involved. He helps get the ball to Carlos Tevez, whose shot is blocked and then Simone Padoin blazes the rebound over.

All eyes on the ball

I think this would be the easiest spot the ball (if you removed the ball). It would definitely be the easiest if you didn't remove it.
