ROME, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- Juventus beat Chievo 2-1 to move three points clear at the top of the Serie A table on Sunday.
Alessandro Matri put the visitors ahead in the 10th minute, followed by a second just before the break from Stephan Lichtsteiner. Cyril Thereau reduced the arrears for Chievo early in the second half.
Thereau had a chance to level the scores shortly after, but in truth it was a victory the league leaders deserved with Antonio Conte's side missing chances to extend their lead late on.
Juve are now three points clear of Napoli at the top of the Serie A table.
