Milan: Juventus extended their lead over title challengers Inter Milan to seven points thanks to a 3-0 rout of Atalanta on Sunday as AC Milan continued their Serie A resurgence with a 4-1 defeat of Pescara.

Champions Juve held a four-point lead going into their 17th match of the campaign but took full advantage of the Nerazzurri's 1-0 defeat away to Lazio on Saturday to pull clear of the pack.

Montenegrin striker Mirko Vucinic opened the scoring with barely 90 seconds on the clock after beating Atalanta's offside trap to run in from the left and place his shot beyond reach of Andrea Consigli at the far post.
