Mirko Vucinic scores 2 in Juventus' win
Two goals in six minutes from Mirko Vucinic took Juventus to within touching distance of the Serie A title with a 2-1 win over struggling Pescara.
In a largely one-sided game, Vucinic struck twice to see off the challenge of a Pescara side that found a consolation through Emmanuel Cascione's stunning effort.
The win lifts Antonio Conte's side 12 points clear of Napoli at the top of the table, and warms it up for Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal tie with Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich.
With one eye on Bayern, Conte left the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Pirlo and Fabio Quagliarella on the bench, but the changes did not seem to take anything away from the dominant force in Serie A.
The game was dominated from start to finish by the Bianconeri who, try as they might, could not break the deadlock before halftime.
Pescara had goalkeeper Ivan Pellizzoli to thank for keeping them in the game at the interval as he made numerous fine saves, the first from Emanuele Giaccherini in the 12th minute.
Pellizzoli then turned Quagliarella's shot on to the post after Sebastian Giovinco had been forced to leave the field injured.
Another fine one-handed save from Pellizzoli denied Giaccherini once again just a minute before halftime.
Vucinic missed a glorious chance to open the scoring five minutes into the second half but he still proved decisive with his next two attempts.
Vucinic made it two a few minutes later, picking his spot in the far corner before heading off the pitch for a deserved rest as Conte sent on Alessandro Matri.
Matri wasted the chance to make it three when he dragged a shot wide of the post and Juve was made to sweat for the last seven minutes when Cascione curled an unstoppable 20-yard effort into the top-right corner of Marco Storari's goal.
It was Pescara's first shot of the game and, although it tested Storari with another goalbound effort before fulltime, Juve held on to take all three points and edge closer to a second successive Serie A title.
Elsewhere, Rolando Bianchi's stoppage-time equalizer grabbed a 2-2 draw for Torino at Bologna.
Paulo Vitor Barreto sent Torino ahead on 25 minutes but Bologna looked like they had grabbed the game away after the break.
