An outstanding display from Paul Pogba led Juventus to a convincing 4-0 over Udinese in the Serie A on Saturday.

The 19-year-old starlet lit up a freezing Juventus Stadium on the stroke of halftime with an unstoppable 30-yard volley before thundering home a shot from outside the box after 66 minutes to send the Bianconeri on their way.

The game was over when Mirko Vucinic squirmed a close-range volley past Udinese goalkeeper Danielle Padelli with 18 minutes left before the Montenegrin striker set up Alessandro Matri to complete the scoring two minutes later.

The win sees Juventus move five points clear of at the summit of Serie A after second-placed Lazio could only manage a 2-2 draw to lowly Palermo in the night’s other game.

The capital-city side got off to a good start at the Stadio Renzo Barbera when Sergio Floccari scored after just 10 minutes.

But goals to Egidio Arevalo and Paulo Dybala within two minutes of each other put the hosts ahead with 20 minutes remaining.

Lazio were able to escape with a point thanks to a late Herananes penalty but Vladimir Petkovic’s side will be disappointed to not overcome a Palermo side that is languishing 19th on the table with result leaving their title aspirations hanging by a thread.
