      The Bianconere maintain their grip on top spot after an impressive 5-0 away victory

      Juventus Women produced a devastating display as they crushed Orobica 5-0 away to stay six points clear at the top of Serie A.

      In a game they dominated from start to finish, the Bianconere came racing out the blocks and almost took an early lead through Benedetta Glionna before Valentina Cernoia did the honours with a magnificent curling effort after 19 minutes. 

      Five minutes afterwards Petronella Ekroth opened her Juve account as she volleyed home from inside the box to make it 2-0.

      Rita Guarino's side hadn't finished there and they went looking for more after the break. Barbara Bonansea scored a brilliant solo effort on the hour mark before Sofie Pedersen added another five minutes later courtesy of Eniola Aluko's assist.

      Aluko was again the provider for Juve's fifth as Glionna rounded out the scoring in the 90th minute. 

      Petronella Ekroth was all smiles as she spoke to the media after breaking her Juventus duck.

      “It's great to have scored my first goal for Juventus,” she said. “We played really well and scored lots of goals. I thoroughly enjoyed myself out there today. Now we have to focus on the Coppa Italia.”

      Rita Guarino was equally satisfied with her team's display.

      “We're delighted with the result. It was important not just to win but to manage our energy levels too because it's a busy period with all the international fixtures. I was really pleased with how we managed the whole game. The girls were switched on, kept things tidy and posed a real threat going forward. Even those who haven't played so much came in and did well. I'm happy.”
