A brace from Gonzalo Higuain gave Juventus a 2-0 win at home to Chievo on Saturday and moved them closer to a sixth consecutive Serie A title as they forged nine points clear of their closest pursuers.

Juve extended their run to 32 successive home league wins and left second-placed AS Roma six points behind.

Higuain opened the scoring in the 23rd minute after fellow Argentine Paulo Dybala burst down the right and pulled the ball back into the area.

Dybala was also involved in the second goal six minutes from time when he found Stephan Lichtsteiner on the right and the Swiss full back’s cross was turned in by Higuain for his 21st league goal of the season.

Juve, who host Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, now have 77 points from 31 games with Roma on 71.
