Tevez scores wonder goal in Juve rout

Carlos Tevez scored a solo goal with a run which started inside his own half to cap a emphatic 7-0 win for Serie A leaders Juventus over hapless Parma yesterday.

Tevez, Fernando Llorente and Alvaro Morata all scored twice and Stephan Lichtsteiner was also on target as Juve won their 24th successive home league match.

Juve, who enjoyed their biggest Serie A win since they beat Ascoli by the same score 29 years ago, were already 3-0 ahead when Tevez produced his masterpiece just after the break.

The Argentine, recently recalled by his country after a three-year absence, collected the ball, turned and surged away from Andrea Costa, then evaded two more challenges before side-footing past Antonio Mirante after a 70-metre sprint.

Juventus lead the standings with 28 points from 11 games while Roberto Donadoni's Parma are bottom with six points after their heaviest-ever Serie A defeat.
