Juventus takes over top spot in Serie A with win at Livorno

Publish date:

MILAN (AP) -- Juventus eased to a 2-0 win at Livorno on Sunday to provisionally take over top spot in Serie A, while Fiorentina fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat at Udinese.

Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez scored in the second half for Juventus as the two time-defending champions moved two points above Roma, which hosts Cagliari on Monday.

Tomas Heurtaux scored for Udinese, which had lost four of its past five matches.

Elsewhere, a stoppage-time equalizer saw Lazio snatch a 1-1 draw at 10-man Sampdoria and spoil coach Sinisa Mihajlovic's debut match in charge. Sampdoria played the entire second half with 10 men after Nenad Krsticic was sent off.

Also, teenage forward Domenico Berardi struck again as Sassuolo beat Atalanta 2-0 while Torino crushed Catania 4-1.
