Tevez double the key for record-breaking Juventus
Two goals in seven first-half minutes from Carlos Tevez kept Juventus on course for a third successive Serie A title with a 2-1 win over Parma which ended the away side's 17-match unbeaten run and set a record of 15 straight home wins in a season.
Argentine Tevez struck in the 25th and 32nd minutes to go back to the top of the Serie A scoring charts with 18 goals and extended Juve's lead to 14 points after AS Roma had cut the gap to 11 with a last gasp 2-1 win over Torino.
Cristian Molinaro pulled a goal back for Parma just after the hour mark but they lost Amauri to a soft-looking red card for apparently elbowing Giorgio Chiellini in an aerial challenge almost immediately afterwards.
Defeat for Parma left them in sixth, level on 47 points with fifth-placed Inter Milan, who host Udinese tomorrow.
Atalanta are four points behind the pair after a 2-0 win over 18th-placed Livorno, their fifth victory in a row, thanks to goals from Giuseppe De Luca and German Denis.
Lazio slipped to eighth with a 2-0 loss at Genoa.
Antonio Conte's Juve moved up to 81 points and stayed 20 ahead of third-placed Napoli, who beat bottom side Catania 4-2 in a thrilling game in Sicily.
