Pogba strike hands takes Juventus 6 points clear

Paul Pogba struck in injury time to hand Juventus a 2-1 win over Bologna and they have now opened up a six-point gap on Napoli. 

Juventus looked set for a share of the points until Pogba got his head to a superb cross from the left from Sebastian Giovinco to beat Federico Agliardi from close range in the dying seconds. 

Pogba had the ball in the net earlier in the game only to be ruled offside and he then hit the post with an exquisite shot on 16 minutes. 

Juve finally broke the deadlock in the 54th minute through Fabio Quagliarella, but were brought level when French midfielder Saphir Taider latched on to a cross 15 metres out and beat a diving Gianluigi Buffon with a dipping angled drive. 

Their ninth win in 10 games extended their unbeaten run to 49 games and stretched their lead over Napoli to six points after Walter Mazzarri's side suffered a shock 1-0 defeat away to Atalanta. 

"Our secret is that we keep on believing right to the end and today was another example of that," Quagliarella told Sky Italia. 

Elsewhere, Inter Milan moved into second - four points adrift of Juve - with a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Sampdoria while Roma suffered a shock 3-2 defeat away to Parma and Lazio had to settle for a draw at home to Torino.Cagliari celebrated their biggest win of the season when they beat Siena 4-2 to consolidate their mid-table position, while second-from-bottom Chievo grabbed only their third win of the season with a 2-0 defeat of Pescara. 

In another mid-table battle Udinese drew 2-2 with Catania. AC Milan battled to a 2-2 draw away to Palermo on Tuesday.
