Washington, Apr 8: Italian side Juventus has come within touching distance of a third successive Serie A title following a 2-0 win over rival side Livorno on Monday at the Juventus Stadium.

According to CNN, Fernando Llorente fired Juventus eight points clear at the top of the Italian league by scoring twice in three minutes and bringing back a ray of light for his side, which suffered a 2-0 shock defeat by Napoli last week
