Juventus kept up their pursuit of Inter Milan and Napoli at the top of Serie A with a 4-1 win against SPAL.

Juve took a 14th-minute lead through Federico Bernardeschi, whose volley from the edge of the box flew into the top corner, before Paulo Dybala's free kick in the 22nd minute doubled their advantage.

Alberto Paloschi pulled a goal back for the visitors on 34 minutes but the Bianconeri made sure of victory with goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Juan Cuadrado in the 65th and 70th minutes.

That result leaves them one point behind Inter Milan in second and three behind league leaders Napoli.
