Leaders Juventus win again in Serie A

Juventus are firm favourites to seal an eighth consecutive league title but Chiellini has cautioned against taking anything for granted.

Second-placed Napoli visit Atalanta on Monday.

"We have started a tough month, with hard away matches, in the best way possible", Chiellini said.

Midtable Fiorentina threatened in the second half through Federico Chiesa and Jordan Veretout but fell to their first home defeat this season, with Stefano Pioli's side without a win since September 30.

Juventus dominated the game before which tributes were paid to former Fiorentina captain and Italian global Davide Astori who died suddenly last March.

"I think we are all free people", Buffon told reporters, according to Goal.

In a briefing to reporters, he also said the United States did not yet have a "specific agreement" on auto tariffs. Trump addressed one of the concerns by indicating he would not be opposed to extending the 90-day truce.

Ronaldo escaped a yellow card for his late tackle on Giovanni Simeone before Juventus took the lead with a solo run from Uruguay worldwide Bentancur.

Although the Fiorentina goalkeeper got a hand to Chiellini's acrobatic strike, the bouncing ball evaded Ronaldo in the six-yard box to spin in for the defender's first league goal since October 2016.

Uruguay worldwide Bentancur broke through after a solo run with an angled low finish into the corner of the net.

Ronaldo's 10 goals for his new club is thus a record which was achieved was Wales player John Charles way back in 1957, who too had scored 10 goals in his first 14 matches in a Juventus shirt, in his first season at the Serie A.

Earlier, Slovenian winger Jasmin Kurtic scored headers in either half to rescue a 2-2 draw for 10-man SPAL against Empoli.

Juventus looked to consolidate their lead but both sides had their chances until Chiellini's scuffed volley nestled in the net in the 69th minute.
