Rome: Fernando Llorente scored twice in the space of three minutes and Juventus restored their eight-point lead atop Serie A with a 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Livorno on Monday.

Also, AC Milan won 2-1 at Genoa for its third straight victory with goals from wingers Adel Taarabt and Keisuke Honda, who scored for the first time in the Italian league.

At the Juventus Stadium, Llorente struck first in the 32nd minute, holding off a defender before launching in a difficult shot from an angle. His second came on a header following a corner from Andrea Pirlo, which Livorno's 22-year-old goalkeeper Francesco Bardi got his hands on but couldn't stop.
