Juve sets record for points in 1 year

Press Association

Juventus moved 10 points clear at the top of Serie A as a 3-1 win at Cagliari on Friday night set a new league record of 94 points in a calendar year.

Juve had to come from behind after Mauricio Pinilla put the struggling Sardinians in front in the 16th minute, but a brace from Alessandro Matri, after Arturo Vidal had missed a penalty, turned the game around.

Mirko Vucinic added a third deep into stoppage time, while Cagliari ended the game with 10 men with Davide Astori picking up two yellow cards.

The win extended Juve's advantage over second-placed Inter Milan and Lazio in third, though both have a game in hand.

In the night's other game, Pescara scored a stoppage-time winner to move out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 success over Catania.

Eugenio Togni netted his first ever Serie A goal with the last kick of the game.

Mervan Celik earlier gave Pescara a 23rd-minute lead, but Pablo Barrientos leveled soon after.
