Arturo Vidal scores to give Juventus a 1-0 lead in their Serie A match against Palermo in Turin.

Juventus are poised to move three points clear at the top of the Serie A table after taking a 1-0 lead at the halfway stage of their match against Palermo this afternoon.

The hosts dominated the early exchanges as Claudio Marchisio lashed a fierce volley over the bar, before missing the target again moments later with an effort from just inside the box.

Fernando Llorente was the next to threaten for the Old Lady, but he was unable to get enough power on his header to beat Stefano Sorrentino.

On the half-hour mark, the visitors almost took a surprise lead when Franco Vazquez met a corner and directed his header just over the bar.

Juventus made them pay for that missed chance by taking the lead two minutes later as Carlos Tevez slipped Arturo Vidal into the box and the Chilean midfielder kept his cool to slot a low effort into the far corner.
