ROME (AFP) - An Arturo Vidal double moved Juventus closer to retaining the Serie A title with a 2-0 win at Lazio on Monday.

The Chilean slotted home from the penalty spot in the 8th minute, his first league goal since November, when he scored in a 6-1 win against Pescara.

He then doubled the lead 20 minutes later, rifling home from close range.

As a result, Juventus are now 11 points clear of Napoli at the summit of Serie A with only six matches remaining.
