Juventus 2-0 Novara – Highlights

Juventus returned to the summit of Serie A with a 2-0 home derby win over Novara.

Simone Pepe gave the Bianconeri the perfect start with a finish on four minutes, but the home fans had to wait until the 75th minute to breathe easily – Fabio Quagliarella rising to head his first goal for a year.

Milan had gone top on Saturday night with a 2-0 home win over Siena.

Juve could have scored many more in the first Derby di Piemonte for 55 years. A minute before the opener, Claudio Marchisio saw a shot blocked on the line after good work by Quagliarella on the right.

Paolo De Ceglie created the goal with a delicious ball from the left flank to take both goalkeeper Samir Ujkani and his defence out of the equation, with Pepe applying the finishing touch from a couple of yards out.
