Juventus Moved Top of Serie A League Table


Defending champions Juventus moved top of Serie A as they thrashed Cagliari.

The hosts were looking to bounce back from defeat by Inter Milan in the derby d’Italia on Sunday and were soon in front as Daniele Rugani swept in.

Record signing Gonzalo Higuain then doubled the lead before Dani Alves scored his first goal for Juventus with a powerful drive from outside the box.

Luca Ceppitelli diverted the ball into his own net late on as Mario Lemina’s shot was parried into his path.
