Juve come to life with five-goal win


MILAN — Juventus ended their run of four successive Serie A draws with an emphatic 5-0 thrashing of Fiorentina, who played for more than one hour with 10 men on Saturday.

Still unbeaten this season, second-placed Juventus stayed four points behind AC Milan after the leaders won 2-0 at Parma with a Zlatan Ibrahimovic penalty and a brilliant solo goal by Urby Emanuelson.

Juventus got off the mark in style as Mirko Vucinic curled in an exquisite effort from the edge of the area after 15 minutes. Fiorentina had Alessio Cerci sent off for kicking Paolo De Ceglie off the ball and when Chilean Arturo Vidal scored a second for the visitors before the half hour, it was all over as a contest.
