UDINE, Italy -- Sebastian Giovinco and Fernando Llorente helped Juventus beat Udinese 2-0 on Monday and restore its eight-point lead at the top of the Serie A table.
With Carlos Tevez rested, Giovinco was handed a rare start and he put Juventus in front in the 16th minute, dribbling his way into the right of the area before curling a shot into the far corner.
Juventus doubled its lead 10 minutes later when Llorente prodded in a rebound after a goalmouth scramble following a corner.
Antonio Conte's side remains firmly on course for a Serie A and European double. Juventus faces Benefica in the Europa League semifinals as well as having a clear advantage over Roma with five rounds remaining.
