Kwadwo Asamoah?s Italian club Juventus moved to within a point of a fourth consecutive Serie A title as Carlos Tevez?s double helped them come from behind to beat Fiorentina on Wednesday night.

The Old Lady were denied sealing the championship on Wednesday by Lazio?s 4-0 win over relegated Parma.

But Juve, who are 14 points clear with five matches to go, will be champions with a draw at Sampdoria on Saturday.

Fernando Llorente was also on target for the hosts, while Gonzalo Rodriguez and Josep Ilicic scored for Fiorentina.

Their head-to-head record against second-placed Lazio means a point will be enough for the Scudetto at the weekend.

Rodriguez put Fiorentina ahead from the penalty spot but, from the moment Llorente levelled with a header, the result was never in doubt.

Tevez struck either side of the break, taking his league tally to 20, before Ilicic scored a late consolation after Rodriguez missed a second penalty.
