Juventus extends Serie A lead
Fabio Quagliarella scored a hat trick as Juventus put its first defeat in 50 Serie A games behind it with a stunning 6-1 victory at Pescara.
By firing six past Pescara, Antonio Conte's side extended its lead at the top of Serie A to four points over Inter Milan, its conqueror last week which travels to face Atalanta on Sunday.
Arturo Vidal opened the scoring and Kwadwo Asamoah and Sebastian Giovinco were also on target for the visitors, while Emmanuel Cascione scored Pescara's consolation.
It did not take long to realize which way the game was heading as Juventus took the lead in the ninth minute, having had Pescara on the back foot.
Vidal was picked out by Giovinco and he became the first to beat Mattia Perin with a well-directed shot.
Quagliarella missed a good chance just two minutes later, but he was just getting warmed up.
In the 22nd minute, he scored his first and Juve's second, sweeping the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal from 15 yards after being set up by Mauricio Isla
