Juventus continues to dominate the Italian top flight competitions this season and is seemed to be headed on its way to a sixth consecutive Serie A title. The team is still on top of the standings at the moment, seven games ahead of closest pursuer AS Roma and is on a six-game winning run.

The Old Lady crushed bottom three squad Palermo, 4-1, also at the Juventus Stadium in their most recent Serie A fixture on Feb. 17, as per SkySports.

Argentine striker Paulo Dybala was the man of the match for Juve as he scored a brace to lead the hosts' four-goal haul.

Italian midfielder Claudio Marchisio opened the scoring for head coach Massimiliano Allegri's squad in the 13th minute before Dybala netted his first goal of the contest five minutes before the halftime break for a 2-0 lead at the interval.

Dybala's compatriot and fellow striker Gonzalo Higuaín made it a 3-0 count in the 63rd minute with a right-footed shot from the center of the box with the assist coming from Dybala via a through ball.

Dybala then scored his second goal in the 89th to seal the win for the hosts before Palermo managed to score a consolation goal in injury time courtesy of Ivaylo Chochev.

Meanwhile, Empoli was nipped by capital city club Lazio, 1-2, at their home ground of Carlo Castellani Stadium last Saturday, ESPN reported.

After a goalless first half, Empoli midfielder Rade Krunic broke the deadlock in the 67th minute. However, it was quickly equalized by Lazio forward Ciro Immobile a minute later before an own goal by Andrea Costa gave the win to the visitors in the 80th.

Empoli is now in the 17th spot of the 20-team league table, eight points above the bottom three relegation area.
