Paulo Dybala got to the end of a beautifully worked move from Paul Pogba to grab the only goal of the game for Juventus against AC Milan to help his side win all three points from the encounter at the Juventus Stadium on Saturday. The Old Lady have continued their steady rise up the league table after a torrid start to their league season and are now sixth in the table after registering what was their third successive win in the league. AC Milan, meanwhile, are winless in their last two games and are a solitary point behind Massimiliano Allegri’s men in seventh.
Napoli have continued their superlative displays under the stewardship of Maurizio Sarri and registered a 2-0 win over an obdurate Hellas Verona. Lorenzo Insigne and Gonzalo Higuain were on the scoresheet for the Neapolitans as they struck in the second half to help them climb to the second spot in the league table. Napoli look strong favourites to claim the title this term as Juventus falter, and it remains to be seen if they are able to continue their form for a major part of the season.
Cesare Bovo scored the only goal in the encounter between Torino and Atalanta to help the Turin outfit win all three points. Torino are now occupying ninth spot in the league with a record of five wins, as many defeats and three draws from their first 13 league games.
