Defending champions Juventus have tightened their grip on the Serie A title after thrashing 10-man Lecce 4-0 at the Allianz stadium.
Juventus broke the deadlock eight minutes into the second half thanks to a lovely curling effort by Paulo Dybala.
Cristiano Ronaldo then doubled the advantage from the spot after winning the penalty himself.
Gonzalo Higuain fired the third into the roof of the net on a brilliant back-heel assist from Ronaldo.
And Matthijs de Ligt completed the rout with five minutes remaining after heading in from a couple of yards out. The win means Juventus extended their lead to seven points over second-placed Lazio, who will host Fiorentina on Saturday.
