Juve miss chance to go clear

JUVENTUS and Udinese failed to turn their attacking ambition into goals, playing out a 0-0 draw last night which leaves Antonio Conte's team level with AC Milan at the top of the Serie A standings.

In contrast, there were goals galore in the other Serie A matches.

Diego Milito broke his scoring duck to help Inter Milan beat Lecce 4-1, while Atalanta also won 4-1 against Cesena.

Napoli did even better, humiliating Genoa 6-1.

Catania came back from two goals down to draw 3-3 at Parma.

Juventus remain unbeaten and are now level on points with Milan heading into the winter break.

Despite that, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon insists the team is still not thinking of the Serie A title.

"It was a good game and I think in the end a draw was the fairest result," Buffon said. "We're still unbeaten and that's a fact we're proud of, nobody would have ever thought of being in this place.

"What's our aim for 2012? It's not the title but we're aiming to qualify for the Champions League."
