Tevez goal keeps Juventus in Serie A lead
Juventus will end 2013 five points clear at the top of Serie A after a 4-1 victory at Atalanta stretched their winning league run to nine games.
AS Roma remain their closest pursuers as they closed their year with a 4-0 crushing of bottom club Catania with two goals coming from defender Mehdi Benatia.
Carlos Tevez's 11th league goal of the season after six minutes and goals from Paul Pogba, Fernando Llorente and Arturo Vidal tightened Antonio Conte's side's grip on top spot with 46 points from 17 games.
Juve were ahead after six minutes as Tevez collected Arturo's Vidal's misplaced pass and fired home.
Maxi Moralez struck a shock equaliser nine minutes later, drilling a low first time drive off the post and past Gianluigi Buffon, the first goal he had conceded in nine league games.
The champions remained on top, however, and Pogba put them back in front after the break, calmly slotting home after Llorente touched down Kwadwo Asamoah's cross.
Llorente removed any doubt as to the outcome when he took Giorgio Chiellini's pass with his back to goal and brilliantly worked a shooting position before firing home.
