Barcelona and Juventus win away to maintain title Lead
« on: March 08, 2016, 01:16:30 PM »


Juventus restored its three-point lead over Napoli in Serie A with a 2-0 win at Atalanta, while Inter Milan boosted its chances of returning to the Champions League with a 3-1 win over Palermo.
Andrea Barzagli and Mario Lemina scored for Juventus while Gianluigi Buffon had a ninth successive clean sheet. The goalkeeper has not been beaten in Serie A in 836 minutes, the third-longest stretch in league history.
AC Milan could have leapfrogged fifth-place Inter, temporarily at least, but lost 2-0 at 10-man Sassuolo to end a run of 12 matches undefeated in all competitions.
Frosinone beat fellow struggler Udinese 2-0, and Genoa also boosted its chances of escaping the drop with a 1-0 win over Empoli. Carpi drew 0-0 at Bologna and Torino drew 1-1 against Lazio.


Lionel Messi continued his impressive form by scoring two goals in Barcelona?s 4-0 win over Eibar, as the strike force of Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar reached a total of 100 goals this season in all competitions.
It was the fourth goal, scored by Suarez after Messi?s earlier brace, which brought up the scoring century.
Messi scored with a great run in the 41st and added a penalty in the 76th, leaving Barcelona with an eight-point advantage over Atletico Madrid, which later won 3-1 at Valencia to keep pace with 10 games to go.
Real Madrid stayed 12 points behind Barcelona after Saturday?s 7-1 rout of Celta Vigo.
Also Sunday, Real Betis defeated visiting Granada 2-0, Athletic Bilbao won 2-1 at Sporting Gijon, and Real Sociedad drew 1-1 with last-place Levante.
