Juventus continued their brilliant form this term as they defeated Inter Milan in an entertaining derby’Italia on Sunday.

The game ended in favour of the home team 1-0 courtesy of a Juan Cuadrado effort. With the result it seems no team in the Serie A is capable of stopping the serial Seria A champions yet again. Juve seem set to cruise to another record Serie A title by May.

Juventus are now six points clear of Napoli who are in second place. Napoli are a point above Lucio Spalletti’s men. Roma face Fiorentina on Tuesday as their stadium – the Stadio Olimpico – was used in the Six Nations game.

With the result, Inter fall to fifth position, one point behind Lazio – who are set to play Roma in the Coppa Italia. Lazio defeated Pescara 6-2 with Marco Parolo scoring four times.

On the other hand, AC Milan woes continue as they lost to Sampdoria at home 1-0. Luis Muriel is responsible for Milan’s four straight defeat in all competitions. They were in third position in December but the string of losses threaten to thwart their efforts this term.

Elsewhere in the Serie A, Torino played a 1-1 draw with Empoli; Cheivo Verona played a goalless draw with Udinese; Sassuolo defeated Genoa by a lone goal; Palermo won Crotone by the slimmest of margins as they battle relegation. Atalanta defeated Cagliari 2-0 and are now level with Inter Milan.

The La Liga was anti-climatic as Samir Nasri lost a penalty chance that would have helped Sevilla moe a point within log leaders Real Madrid. Madrid have two games in hand as they could not play against Celta Vigo due to bad weather. Barcelona and Sevilla have been putting pressure on the European champions this term.
