Updated: April 22, 2014


Juventus edged closer to another Serie A title with a hard fought 1-0 win over Bologna.

With the game heading for a stalemate Paul Pogba found the all-important winner for the Turin based giants to lift Juve onto 90 points with 4 games to play.

The top of the Serie A table remained unchanged after Roma kept pace with Juve by getting a 1-0 win at Fiorentina.

Radja Nainggolan produced the lone goal for Roma, lifting his side to 82 points to stay within eight points of first place.

Third-place Napoli only managed to come away from Udinese with a 1-1 draw.

AC Milan cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Livorno at the San Siro with all three goals coming from different sources.

Mario Balotelli put the hosts in front two minutes before halftime while Adel Taarabt’s 51st-minute strike and Giampaolo Pazzini’s goal seven minutes from time completed Milan’s rout.

Inter Milan, meanwhile, capitalized on Gabriel Paletta’s early second-half red card by getting a 2-0 win at Parma behind goals from Rolando and Fredy Guarin while Antonio Candreva scored at the death to give Lazio a 3-3 draw against Torino.
