Serie A round-up: Gonzalo Higuain strikes twice as Juventus beat AC Milan

Gonzalo Higuain fired a brilliant double as Juventus won 2-0 at AC Milan to draw level on points with Napoli at the top of Serie A.

The Argentine striker applied classy finishes in the 23rd and 63rd minutes at the San Siro to give Juventus the edge, with fellow Argentine Paulo Dybala playing a key role in both goals.

Juventus secured a third straight league win and extended their unbeaten run on the road in Serie A this season to five matches, while Milan have now won only one of their last six.

Stephan El Shaarawy’s emphatic first-half finish secured Roma a 1-0 home win against Bologna to keep them in touch with the top four.

Attacking midfielder El Shaarawy buried Lorenzo Pellegrini’s cross into the area and that was enough for Eusebio Di Francesco’s side to register their seventh win in eight Serie A matches.

Roma’s third straight league victory has lifted them to within a point of fourth-placed Lazio, who play at Benevento on Sunday.

Unbeaten Napoli play Sassuolo on Sunday too, and Inter could also overtake Juventus when they travel to Verona on Monday night.
