Juventus cruise to easy win over Bologna to move into second


Reigning champions Juventus stormed back into second place in the Serie A table.

A day after Napoli removed Inter Milan from first place with their confident victory at Torino, Massimiliano Allegri's Bianconeri went to Bologna and won 3-0 to also leapfrog the Nerazzurri.

Miralem Pjanic fired Juve ahead with a sumptuous free kick before the half-hour mark and then turned provider for Mario Mandzukic, who hooked home at the far post.

After the break, Blaise Matuidi confirmed the outcome with a screamer into the bottom corner, bringing Juve to within a point of Napoli heading into the last round of fixtures before Christmas.
