Juventus roll Roma over as Milan stumble on

Juventus responded to their midweek goalless draw with a 4-1 home victory against AS Roma, but AC Milan's indifferent form continued as they were pegged back by Parma FC.

Three goals in the first 19 minutes set Juventus on their way to a 4-1 home victory against AS Roma, on a night when AC Milan were held to a 1-1 draw at Parma FC.

The Bianconeri failed to win for the first time this season at ACF Fiorentina in midweek, but any confidence that 0-0 scoreline had given Roma fans soon evaporated. Andrea Pirlo's quickly-taken free-kick (11) put his side into an early lead and two more goals soon followed.

Arturo Vidal (16) converted a penalty and Alessandro Matri sprang the offside trap and squirmed the ball past Maarten Stekelenberg to round off a dramatic opening to proceedings. Pablo Osvaldo's second-half spot-kick reduced the Giallorossi's arrears, but Sebastian Giovinco gift-wrapped the win for Juventus in the last minute, extending their unbeaten Serie A run to 45 matches. 

Milan are nine points behind Juventus after failing to win at Parma in the early fixture. Italian Under-21 international Stephen El Shaarawy gave the Rossoneri the lead with his fourth goal in three games, but Daniele Galloppa cancelled it out with a low drive teed up at a free-kick.
