Juventus are just one point away from claiming their third Scudetto in a row after a hard-fought 3-1 win over Sassuolo on Monday.

The home side shocked Antonio Conte’s Bianconeri when they snatched an early lead through Simone Zaza, but Juve responded before the break with Carlos Tevez smashing home his 19th league goal of the season.

But it was a different story after the break, and the Serie A leaders went in front when a sublime pass from Andrea Pirlo was expertly finished by Claudio Marchisio.

Fernando Llorente then made the game comfortable with a little under 15-minutes left, leaving Conte’s men eight points clear of second-placed Roma with just three games remaining.
