Juventus overcame an early setback, a rain-soaked pitch and feisty opponents to win 3-1 at relegation-threatened Sassuolo Monday and stand on the brink of a third successive Serie A title.Simone Zaza, co-owned by the two clubs, gave Sassuolo a ninth-minute lead before Juventus leveled with a Carlos Tevez shot which deflected off Alessandro Longhi in the 35th.The result left Juventus on 93 points from 35 games, eight ahead of AS Roma with three matches each to play.Juventus will wrap up the title if they beat Atalanta at home on May 5 or if Roma fail to beat bottom club Catania Sunday.Instead, Juventus went ahead when a clearance out of the Sassuolo defense went straight to playmaker Pirlo, who lobbed a first-time pass over the defense for Marchisio to fire past Gianluca Pegolo.
