Soccer: Juve crush Inter to go nine points clear of Roma (ANSA) - Rome, February 3 - Juventus crushed Inter Milan 3-1 in the 'Derby of Italy' Sunday night to go nine points clear of AS Roma at the top of Serie A.

The Turin giants, aiming for their third straight title, went 3-0 up inside 55 minutes thanks to Stefan Lichtsteiner, Arturo Vidal and Giorgio Chiellini before Rolando pulled one back for the visitors.

Roma's home game against Parma was called off because of torrential rain in the Italian capital.

Juve have 59 points from 22 games and Roma, who will play Parma in March or April, 50 from 21.

Napoli, 3-0 losers at Atalanta, are on 44 points while Fiorentina, who lost 1-0 at Cagliari, are fourth on 41.

Inter are sixth on 33 and AC Milan, who drew 1-1 with visiting Torino, are 10th, 30 points behind Juve.
