Juventus 1-0 Roma (Higuaín 14)
Juventus are now seven points clear of second-placed Roma and confirmed as winter champions after Gonzalo Higuaín’s goal proved enough for victory. Higuaín showed his strength to dispossess Roma captain Daniele De Rossi, beat a defender and then shot in from the edge of the box. Juventus have equalled their own record of 25 straight home Serie A wins.
