12th win for Juve

MILAN – Juventus claimed their 12th league win in a row when they beat Atalanta 2-0 yesterday in a match originally postponed by snow to go four points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A.

Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi scored in each half of a typically efficient performance which left the Turin side as favourites to win a seventh successive title.
