Juventus top league after blanking Palermo

Milan: Juventus took advantage of another bout of Palermo travel sickness to beat the Sicilians 3-0 on Sunday and join Lazio at the top of Serie A.

Simone Pepe headed Juve in front in the first half before Alessandro Matri and Claudio Marchisio each scored their fifth goal of the season to keep Juventus unbeaten after their first 10 games of the season.

Sixth-placed Palermo have a 100 per cent home record but have taken only one point in six away games and have yet to score on the road.

Antonio Conte's team went level on 22 points with Lazio, who have played a game more and drew 0-0 at Napoli on Saturday. Juventus visit Lazio on Sunday.

"It was a treacherous game on paper and that's how it turned out on the field. If we hadn't been on our toes, we could have been surprised," Conte said.


His opposite number Devis Mangia was baffled by his team's poor away form.

"Perhaps we need to go for a psychoanalysis to cure these problems we are suffering when we travel," he told reporters.

Udinese missed a chance to go top when they lost 2-0 at Parma, a result which kept them level on 21 points with defending champions AC Milan who drew 0-0 at Fiorentina on Saturday.

Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin spent two seasons at Parma but got no favours from his former club.
