Serie A

Llorente enjoying Tevez partnership

Both Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez found the target in Juventus' 2-0 win over Livorno and Llorente feels the partnership will keep getting better.

Juventus moved top of the Serie A table with a 2-0 win at Livorno and Spanish international marksman Fernando Llorente has hailed his strike partner Carlos Tevez.

Llorente scored the opener in the second half and then set up Tevez for the second as Juve overcame a stubborn Livorno.

The Bianconeri are leading Serie A for the first time this season, although that could be temporary as Roma entertain Cagliari this evening.

One of Juve's greatest weapons this term has been the relationship between Llorente and Tevez, who seem to be developing a fruitful partnership.

"Every time we play together it gets better," Llorente enthused in La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We are getting to know each other better and game after game we are improving physically.

"We have done what we had to do and need to keep going like this starting with the game against Copenhagen."

Juventus host Danish side Copenhagen in the Champions League on Wednesday evening and know that nothing less than a win will do if they are to further their qualification chances.
