Cagliari 1-4 Juventus

League leaders Juventus extended their Serie A winning run to a club record 11 matches as they came from behind to comfortably beat 10-man Cagliari.

Mauricio Pinilla gave Cagliari a first-half lead but was sent off three minutes from time for dissent.

Fernando Llorente levelled and scored Juventus's third after substitute Claudio Marchisio had given them the lead at Stadio Sant'Elia.

Stephan Lichtsteiner capped his fine display with the fourth goal.

Played in front of watching Manchester United manager David Moyes, the win keeps Juventus eight points clear of second-placed Roma as they remain on course for a third successive title.

In front of just 5,000 fans, because of construction work at the stadium, Pinella slotted the hosts ahead at the far post after defender Giorgio Chiellini had misjudged the flight of Daniele Conti's cross.

Llorente brilliantly headed the visitors level from Lichsteiner's cross, before Marchisio's powerful drive put them ahead with 17 minutes remaining.

Spain international Llorente converted from close range three minutes later and Lichsteiner bundled home soon after as Juventus inflicted just a second home defeat of the season on their hosts, who are 13th in the table.
