Juventus Beats Novara 2-0 to Lead Serie A

Udinese was held to a 2-2 draw at Lazio.

Simone Pepe opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Fabio Quagliarella secured the win 15 minutes from time.

 Top goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon made impressive saves throughout the clash.

Inter Milan's 1-0 win against Cesena was their fifth win in six games moving Inter up to fifth spot - 10 points behind Juventus.

Quaglierella headed in Andrea Pirlo's corner for his first goal in more than a year.

"We were very good in creating opportunities, but less so in finishing them off,'' Conte said. "They're risking giving us heart attacks on the bench.''

Napoli slipped further down the table with a 3-1 loss to Roma.

Catania beat Palermo 2-0 in what is likely to be Maxi Lopez's last home game for Catania.

Maxi Lopez is likely to leave Catania fot AC Milan - and the striker left the field in tears when he was substituted midway through the second half.

"I got emotional today because it's been a tough week,'' Maxi Lopez said. "I didn't know if I would play and then it was important for me to score because you don't know what may happen. I left everything to come to this city, for this club and for my teammates.''
