Serie A: Juventus nears fourth straight title after win over Fiorentina

MILAN (AP) — Runaway Serie A leader Juventus beat Fiorentina 3-2 on Wednesday but its title celebrations were delayed by Lazio's 4-0 victory over a Parma side which is now certain to be relegated.

Fiorentina took the lead through a Gonzalo Rodriguez penalty but goals from Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez turned the match around before Gonzalo missed a second penalty.

Tevez, the league's leading scorer, sealed the result with his 20th Serie A goal of the season before Josip Ilicic netted a late consolation goal.

Juventus remained 14 points clear of Lazio and will clinch a fourth successive title with a win at Sampdoria on Saturday.

Roma won 3-0 at Sassuolo to stay third.

Parma, which had been deducted seven points for financial irregularities, was relegated after Atalanta drew 2-2 at Cesena.
