Pogba fires Juventus to four-goal victory

Two long-distance strikes from Paul Pogba set Juventus on their way to a 4-0 home triumph over Udinese Calcio and a five-point cushion at the top of Serie A, after S.S. Lazio were held.

Juventus' lead at the top of Serie A stands at five points after they capitalised on a 2-2 draw for S.S. Lazio by overwhelming Udinese Calcio.

Following the Biancocelesti's brush with defeat in Sicily – Hernanes earning Lazio a share of the spoils against lowly US Città di Palermo with a late penalty – the leaders took advantage, emphatically registering their first league win of 2013.

Paul Pogba scored twice in a 4-0 home win, the first an unstoppable right-footed shot beyond Danielle Padelli and in off the underside of the crossbar four minutes before the break. The 19-year-old's second, a low drive from distance midway through the second period, was followed by a Mirko Vučinić effort on the turn and a smart finish from substitute Alessandro Matri.

Lazio took the lead through Sergio Floccari's early header, but fell behind to two goals in as many minutes. Egidio Raul Arévalo Rios (70) levelled, converting Andrea Dossena's ball to the back post, and when Paulo Dybala swiftly turned the match on its head, Palermo had high hopes of a first win since 24 November. Hernanes, though, ensured they will have to wait another week at least.
