Mario Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain were on target as Juventus beat Crotone 2-0 on Wednesday to stretch their lead at the top of the Serie A table to seven points.

The first ever Serie A meeting between the sides was a tight battle before Mandzukic scrambled home the opener to set up a fourth straight victory for Massimiliano Allegri’s men.

With Crotone committing more players forward, Miralem Pjanic slid Higuain through on goal and the prolific Argentine scored his fifth goal in four away Serie A matches to wrap up the win.

Mario Pasalic scored with one minute remaining as nine-man AC Milan ended their losing streak with an astonishing 1-0 Serie A victory at Bologna.

Seventh-placed Milan are now just two points behind rivals Inter in fifth, while Bologna stay 13th.
