Juventus win at Milan to extend Serie A lead

(Reuters) - Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez scored to give Juventus a 2-0 win at AC Milan which extended their lead at the top of Serie A to 11 points on Sunday.

Llorente scored from close range one minute before halftime after a quick exchange of passes and Tevez rifled in a 25-metre shot off the underside of the crossbar in the 68th minute.

Third-placed Napoli dropped two more points in a 1-1 draw at relegation-threatened Livorno while Fiorentina, who are fourth, lost 1-0 at home to Lazio.

Juventus lead with 69 points from 26 games while Roma, who have played a game less, have 58 after their goalless draw at home to Inter Milan on Saturday. Napoli are a further six points behind.
