Goals from Carlos Tevez and Arturo Vidal have pushed Juventus into a 2-0 half-time lead over hosts Cagliari Calcio in Serie A this evening, with Massimiliano Allegri's side looking to move further ahead of chasing Roma at the summit of the table.
The visitors were in front after only three minutes when striker Tevez showed great reactions to finish from close range following a corner, which was tamely conceded by Alessio Cragno.

The save proved important as Juve doubled their lead in the 15th minute, with Vidal lashing home a world-class strike from outside the box past a desperate Cragno in the hosts' goal.
Andrea Pirlo had a great chance to put the away side three ahead before the break, but he could only guide his free kick over the wall and the frame of the goal, leaving Juve to take a two-goal lead into half time.
