Tévez goal helps Juve move closer to title

Juventus overcame an early setback, a rain-soaked pitch and feisty opponents to win 3-1 at relegation-threatened Sassuolo and stand on the brink of a third successive Serie A title.

Simone Zaza, co-owned by the two clubs, gave Sassuolo a ninth-minute lead before Juventus levelled with a deflected Carlos Tévez shot and Andrea Pirlo provided a sublime pass for Claudio Marchisio to put the visitors in front.

The Argentine's strike was his 19th of the Serie A season, with only Torino's Ciro Immobile (21) outscoring him over the year.

Fernando Llorente backheeled the third to leave Juventus on 93 points from 35 games, eight ahead of AS Roma with three matches each to play.

Juventus will wrap up the title if they beat Atalanta at home on May 5 or if Roma fail to beat bottom club Catania on Sunday.
