Juventus 4 - 0 Reggina

Veteran forward Alessandro Del Piero bagged his 250th Juventus goal as the Turin giants climbed up to second in the Serie A table with a 4-0 victory over Reggina in snowy Turin on Saturday.

It was a sixth win in seven league games for Juve with 34-year-old Del Piero's landmark goal coming from the penalty spot following strikes from Mauro Camoranesi, Amauri and Giorgio Chiellini. The victory moved Juventus above AC Milan on goal difference, three points behind leaders and champions Inter Milan. Both Milanese giants play on Sunday.

Centre-back Chiellini and Del Piero had both gone close for the hosts before Camoranesi gave them the lead on 28 minutes. Del Piero sent Czech veteran Pavel Nedved free down the inside left channel and he drew goalkeeper Andrea Campagnolo before pulling the ball back for the Argentine-born Italy midfielder to slot home. Brazilian forward Amauri held off two defenders under a high ball in the area which then bounced kindly for him to fire home low to Campagnolo's left.

Chiellini added the third with his head from close range 17 minutes into the second half as Reggina's defence stopped and watched Marco Marchionni's deep free-kick. Del Piero added the fourth on 74 minutes from the penalty spot after substitute Sebastian Giovinco had gone down very easily under very barely a challenge from Bruno Cirillo.

In the day's early match, Catania failed to move level on points with fourth-placed Napoli after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to lowly Lecce. The Sicilian hosts took the lead just after the hour mark as young star Michele Paolucci's shot was deflected in. But the visitors earned the point that edges them further away from the drop zone when Argentine substitute Jose Ignacio Castillo crashed home a shot from distance eight minutes later. fifa
