Juventus beat Roma to close gap on Serie A leaders Inter



Juventus defeated Roma 1-0 at home on Saturday, pulling them within two points of Inter Milan, who are leaders of Serie A.

The win was courtesy of a goal from Adrien Rabiot in the second half of the encounter and it was enough to hand them all three points.

Rabiot calmly tapped home after latching onto a ball from Dusan Vlahovic inside the box, to seal the victory.
