Juventus eased to a 3-1 win over relegation-threatened Chievo Verona in Serie A as its remarkable home record continued on Sunday. cheap nfl jerseys . Juventus, which has now won all 12 of its home league matches this season, remained nine points clear of Roma, which beat Sampdoria 3-0 in the days late kickoff and has a game in hand. It was coach Antonio Contes 100th match in charge. Kwadwo Asamoah, Claudio Marchisio and Fernando Llorente scored for Juventus, which conceded a comical own goal. "Its tough to be aggressive for the entire 95 minutes," Conte said. "But we cant allow ourselves to let up during this particular period. The minute our attention levels drop for a second, everything happens. "Its not easy for anyone to win for three years in a row, but these lads are doing just that. Everyone has surprised me in a positive manner, and I hope they keep doing so." Napoli remained four points behind Roma after beating lowly Sassuolo 2-0. "We created several chances to score, I cant be anything other than happy," Napoli coach Rafa Benitez said. "I never talk about individuals, but I see (Marek) Hamsik is improving game after game." Earlier, Catania pulled off a surprise 3-1 victory over Lazio to move off bottom spot. Also, it was: Genoa 3, Udinese 3; Atalanta 0, Parma 4; and Cagliari 1, Livorno 2. Juventus took the lead in the 18th minute when Asamoah curled a powerful effort into the far side of goal from just outside the area. The Serie A leader doubled its advantage 11 minutes later. Chievo goalkeeper Michael Agazzi did well to parry Andrea Pirlos free kick but Marchisio was on hand to net the rebound. Juventus had squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at promoted Hellas Verona last week and it risked falling foul of another Verona team after a sluggish start to the second half. Chievo pulled one back six minutes after the break as Stephan Lichtsteiners attempted clearance ricocheted off teammate Martin Caceres and into the back of the net. However, Llorente sealed the match in the 58th when he headed home Pirlos corner. Juventus has scored three or more goals in all but one of its past nine home matches. Roma kept up the pressure on Juventus with a comfortable victory in the evening match. Two sections of the Stadio Olimpico were closed in the first of a two-match punishment following anti-Neapolitan chants by Romas fans during an Italian Cup match earlier in the month. Mattia Destro scored twice, either side of Miralem Pjanics stunning 30-meter free kick. With his side three goals down, Sampdoria defender Daniele Gastaldello was sent off 10 minutes from time after a second booking. Napoli maintained its bid for a Champions League berth with a comfortable win at Sassuolo. Blerim Dzemaili broke the deadlock in the 37th minute after a series of fine saves from Sassuolo goalkeeper Gianluca Pegolo. Lorenzo Insigne scored 10 minutes after halftime when he raced into the area and curled a shot into the far right of goal. Dzemaili also hit the crossbar late on. It was coach Francesco Guidolins 172nd Serie A game in charge of Udinese, matching the club record set by Giuseppe Bigogno, and he looked set to celebrate with victory after two goals in quick succession from Dusan Basta and Bruno Fernandes Moussa Konate reduced the deficit on the stroke of halftime but Udinese restored its two-goal advantage immediately after the break when Nicolas Burdisso tugged Thomas Heurtauxs shirt in the box and Luis Muriel converted the resulting penalty. A brace from Alberto Gilardino saw Genoa rescue a point. Catania had won only one of its previous 12 matches and started the day bottom of the table. However, it got off to the best possible start when Mariano Izco volleyed in off the inside of the right post after just 41 seconds. Stefano Mauri was making his first start since May following a ban for his role in a match-fixing scandal. The Lazio captain headed his team level in first-half stoppage time. Nicolas Spolli headed Catania back in front immediately after halftime and Gino Peruzzi sealed the result in the 58th minute. The relegation battle between Cagliari and Livorno burst into life a minute before halftime with a stunning strike from Emerson which swerved into the top corner from 40 metres. Tempers flared towards the end and Cagliari captain Daniele Conti was sent off for insulting the referee. Livorno ended the match in nine men after Federico Ceccherini was dismissed for two yellow cards and Marco Benassi saw red for a poor challenge on Mauricio Pinilla. cheap jerseys .J. -- The New York Giants secondary has gotten a lot stronger in the past couple of days, and so has their return game. cheap jerseys from china . Bruce Chen (5-2) threw six-plus solid innings for the Royals, who have won three of their last four games. The left-hander allowed just one run on four hits but walked three batters. Things are starting to go our way a little bit, Hosmer said. PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby isnt scoring goals. The way he is setting up his teammates, it hardly matters. The Pittsburgh captain dished out four assists in his first home game in over three months, James Neal recorded his second NHL hat trick, and the Penguins crushed the Winnipeg Jets 8-4 on Tuesday night. "You give them space and they eat you up," Winnipeg coach Claude Noel said. "Thats what they did." Repeatedly. Evgeni Malkin added two goals -- including the 200th of his NHL career -- and added three assists to lift his point total to an NHL-leading 93. Pittsburgh bounced back from an overtime loss in Philadelphia on Sunday, that ended an 11-game winning streak, and pulled within a point of the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers. "There were some nice hockey plays out there," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. "Theres some of that tape you see in some highlight videos." Having two of the best players on the planet playing alongside each other for stretches certainly helps. Crosby has nine points in four games since his return from concussion-like symptoms. He fed linemate Tyler Kennedy for a pair of goals and helped set up power-play tallies by Neal and Malkin. Not bad for a guy who has played only 12 games in 14 months. "There are still areas where I need to get sharper," said Crosby, who had over 19 minutes of ice time. "But everyone is playing so well ... makes it easier for anyone coming back." Bryan Little scored twice for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec was pulled in the second after allowing five Penguins goals on 24 shots. The Jets remained four points behind eighth-place Washington and the Eastern Conferences post-season cutoff with nine games remaining. Pavelec played well, but he got little help from his defence. The Jets allowed Crosby, Malkin and Neal to go wherever they wanted during a wide-open game that showcased how dynamic the Penguins can be at full strength. "You cant really match up against that," Little said. "Theyve got so much depth. Every time youre out there youre going to be playing against one of the better players in the league. We had to be tighter defensively and we didnt do that." Though Crosbys shooting touch could use some work -- he hasnt scored since his electric season debut against the New York Islanders on Nov. 21 -- his vision remains impeccable. Crosbys 11-game goal drought is the longest of his career. He needed only two minutes to score his first point at home since he had three assists against Ottawa on Nov. 225. wholesale jerseys. Crosby fed the puck to Tyler Kennedy in the slot for Kennedys seventh goal of the season that made it 1-0. Winnipeg took a brief lead in the first, sneaking a pair of shots past Pittsburgh backup Brad Thiessen, but it hardly mattered. Neal scored his first of the night on the power play, a unit that features two of the leagues best players. Crosby whipped a behind-the-back pass to Malkin at the side of the net, and the Russian flicked a pass to Neal for a one-timed shot that tied it at 2 late in the first. Neal scored during a scrum in front of the net at 1:15 of the second. Winnipeg quickly tied it at 3 before Kennedy -- who hadnt scored since Jan. 13 -- netted his second of the night early in the second. Crosby again did most of the work, beating two Jets to the puck behind the Winnipeg net and then finding Kennedy on the doorstep. The Penguins kept coming in a game that looked like something straight out of the 1980s. Pittsburgh has won 11 straight at home against the Jets -- formerly the Atlanta Thrashers -- and scored eight goals in each of Winnipegs two visits to Consol Energy Center this season. "We dont want to get into (shootouts) but we do have the talent to keep up with any team if thats going to happen," Neal said. "Once it starts going its hard to pull back." Malkins 200th goal came with Thiessen pulled during a delayed penalty. With his parents watching from the stands, Malkin stood in his favourite spot in the right circle and whipped the puck past Pavelec to make it 5-3. Noel had seen enough, lifting Pavelec in favour of Chris Mason. Tim Stapleton got Winnipeg within one, but Neal responded with a snap shot for his third goal of the night. Neal had his previous hat trick against Toronto on Dec. 28, 2008, while playing for Dallas. Pittsburgh is clicking so well that the Penguins are scoring even when they are not trying. Malkin scored his 43rd early in the third when he blindly flipped a backhanded centring pass at the net that deflected in off Masons left pad.
