Dybala breaks his duck to set up Juventus victory

Dybala breaks his duck to set up Juventus victory

Juventus maintained their ideal record in Serie A as a 2-0 home win against Bologna gave the Turin club their best start to a season in 88 years.

Juventus are the best team in Europe with "the best player in the world" Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Italy legend and Bologna manager Filippo Inzaghi.

In Turin, Dybala got a rare start up front alongside superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and lashed home his first goal of the season after 12 minutes in the Allianz Stadium.

The Turinese squad beat the Bolognese team with energy and experience.

Comparing the performance to Juve's previous Serie A game when they won 2-0 at Frosinone, Allegri told reporters: "Paulo [Dybala] had a good game like he did in Frosinone".

Dybala also had a hand in the second four minutes later, his cross finding Ronaldo for the Portuguese to knock back across the goal where Matuidi scored from a hard angle. "He had a good game too".

Therefore, while they might be third favourite in the race, they are a horse with pedigree and can not be ruled out. Liverpool are the only remaining side to win all their games after Chelsea drew at West Ham on Sunday.


Juve put the pressure on right away and it didn't take long for it to pay off. Juve got the scoring started 70 minutes earlier in this match than they did on Saturday.

New signings Joaquin Correa and Francesco Acerbi scored to give Lazio a 2-1 win at Udinese which kept them third, three points behind Napoli.

Matuidi added the second five minutes later when Ronaldo rolled the ball across the face of the goal for him to slot in from a tight angle.

The Serie A champions enjoyed a lion's share of the possession in the first half, while Bologna provided no attacking threat as Juve goalkeeper Mattia Perin endured a quiet half.

Frosinone, which hit the post late, is still yet to score this season but Chievo Verona remained bottom after losing 2-0 at Genoa.

Lazio then had a nervy final 10 minutes after Bram Nuytinck's overhead kick was deflected into the back of the net by Milan Badelj.
