Atalanta 1-4 Juventus

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez

Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba scored as Juventus cruised to an easy win at Atalanta to maintain a five-point lead at the top of Serie A.

Tevez gave his side an early lead with his 11th goal in 17 league games since joining from Manchester City in June.

Maxi Moralez levelled for Atalanta before Pogba restored the lead after a lay off Fernando Llorente.

Llorente and Arturo Vidal added late goals for Juve as the 2013 champions won their ninth league game in a row.

The only negative for Juventus was Moralez's goal - the first goal goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon had conceded for 744 minutes.

But Antonio Conte's side still boast a healthy lead before their next Serie A game at home to nearest challengers Roma on 5 January.
