Juventus 1-0 Empoli
Moise Kean came off the bench to score the winner as Juventus edged past Empoli, now needing just 13 points for an eighth straight Serie A title.
Kean, 19, latched on to Mario Mandzukic’s knock down to fire in a cool finish just three minutes after appearing as a second-half substitute.
It had been a poor contest up until then, with Juve’s Federico Bernardeschi clipping the crossbar with a volley.
Empoli failed to work Wojciech Szczesny into making a save in the entire game.
With nine games remaining, Massimiliano Allegri’s side have already clinched a place in next season’s Champions League group stage.
Second-placed Napoli – who travel to Roma on Sunday (kick-off 6:00 PST) – are now 18 points adrift of Juve.
