MILAN - Serie A leaders Juventus remain on course for a third straight title after posting a 3-0 victory over second-placed Roma, who were forced to play with nine men for the final 13 minutes on Sunday.

It was a 10th successive win for Antonio Conte's team and extended their lead at the top of the table to eight points at the halfway stage of the season. It was Roma's first loss of the season.

Juventus were in complete control following goals from Arturo Vidal and Leonardo Bonucci but Roma were still fighting to get back in the game.
