Juventus secured all three points on the road as they beat Napoli 3-1 in their Serie A clash on Sunday night to go three points clear at the top of the table.

The Old Lady took the lead in the 29th minute when a shot from Carlos Tevez deflected off Llorente and fell for Paul Pogba who volleyed home superbly from the left side of the box.
 
Juve came close to doubling their lead in the 43rd minute. Tevez put a pass beyond the defence for Caceres but the Uruguayan's effort was straight at Rafael, who held on despite the venom behind the shot.
 
Napoli equalised in the 64th minute. Mertens whipped in a corner kick from the left and found Miguel Angel Britos who stabbed his effort into the back of the net from close range.
 
The visitors got themeselves back in front only five minutes later as Andrea Pirlo sent in a ball from the right for Caceres who was in space in the box and netted into the top corner of the goal.
 
The result was put beyond doubt in stoppage time as Morata lead an attack down the left flank before squaring for Arturo Vidal who did the rest with a shot into the top corner.
