Gonzalo Higuain’s brace, including a stunning volley, and Miralem Pjanic saw Juventus sweep Sassuolo aside 3-1.
The Bianconeri gave Miralem Pjanic his debut, while it was the first time Higuain and Paulo Dybala started together, but Andrea Barzagli was rested.
Sassuolo had technically won their first two rounds, but the 2-1 victory against Pescara was overturned due to the irregular registration of Antonino Ragusa.
However, they got their consolation goal when Gigi Buffon missed a Politano corner and Alex Sandro’s defensive header ricocheted in off Luca Antei. It was the first goal the Neroverdi had scored here in their fourth visit.
Juve stay on top with nine points and a 100% start as the visiting side slips to 14th with three points.
