- Bayern Munich stay seven points clear in Germany with win over Eintracht Frankfurt
- Malaga miss chance to move into third place in Spain's La Liga
(CNN) -- Last weekend's setback is looking like a mere blip for Juventus.
Denied a 50th successive league match undefeated, the Italian champions bounced back with a 4-0 romp against Nordsjaelland in European competition and on Saturday crushed Pescara 6-1 to move four points clear in Serie A.
Inter Milan had closed the gap to one with that 3-1 win seven days ago, but the pressure is back on for Sunday's trip to mid-table Atalanta.
Juve striker Fabio Quagliarella followed up his midweek goal against the Danish side with a hat-trick, while Sebastian Giovinco was also again on target.
Arturo Vidal, who scored against both Inter and Nordsjaelland, opened proceedings to score for his fourth successive match while Kwadwo Asamoah netted an overhead kick in a first half that featured six goals -- one of them to Pescara's Emmanuel Cascione.
