Juventus continued their winning start to 2024 with a 3-0 win over Sassuolo to get even against the only team to have defeated the Bianconeri this campaign.
A memorable Dusan Vlahovic double in the first half was added to by Federico Chiesa in the closing minute of the second period.
The three points saw Juve remain on the heels of Inter at the top of the table. A cautious start saw both sides take the measure of each other but at the first sight of goal on 15 minutes Juve took the lead.
Pressing in midfield saw the Bianconeri recycle possession and Fabio Miretti quickly shuffled the ball onto Dusan Vlahovic at the edge of the area.The striker took aim and hit a sweet curler up and over Andrea Consigli.
For Dusan it was a fifth direct involvement in his last four league outings – and it wasn’t his last of the first half.However, before Vlahovic completed his double, Wojciech Szczesny kept out a wicked drive from distance from Armand Lauriente.
Vlahovic had a chance to complete a first-half hat-trick, but his free-kick from the opposite side was comfortably saved by Consigli.
The Sassuolo keeper was then called on again to get down quickly to keep out an Adrien Rabiot pile driver.
