Juventus were looking to get back to their feet after suffering a 3-1 loss against Lazio in the last matchday. Meanwhile, Udinese managed to hold Napoli to a draw.

Maurizio Sarri made four changes to the team that started against Bayer Leverkusen. Matuidi and Bentancur replaced Cuadrado and Pjanic who were out due to suspension.

Just inside the first ten minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo got Juve on the front. Dybala chested the ball down before giving it to Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar took the shot without making unnecessary touches and managed to find the back of the net.

At the 37th minute, Juventus doubled their lead, and once again, through their number-7. Although this time, it was Higuain pairing up with Ronaldo.

Juve added another one just at the half time mark. Demiral, just after Udinese failed to get rid of the danger, slots the ball in the box. Demiral’s ball met Bonucci whose shot went past Musso.

Just when Buffon thought he had gotten away with a clean sheet, Udinese pulled one back. The ball lands to Ignacio Pussetto after getting deflected from Demiral who hit first time to get a consolation goal.
