An own-goal from Perparim Hetemaj and a Gonzalo Higuain strike killed the game before Dybala stole the show
JUVENTUS kept up their stranglehold on the Serie A title with another win on their faultless start to the season thanks to super-sub Paulo Dybala.
An own-goal from Perparim Hetemaj was followed up by strikes from Gonzalo Higuain and the Argentina starlet to keep them on target for their SEVENTH consecutive Scudetto.
The hosts went ahead on 17 minutes when Finnish midfielder Hetemaj headed in a Miralem Pjanic cross.
The Bosnian midfielder whipped in a free-kick from a tight angle and it came off the unfortunate Hetemaj’s head at the near post.
Dybala was sent on as a sub on 54 minutes – after he had played 134 minutes in South America in midweek – and he changed the game.
Chievo had managed to keep a lid on the Old Lady for 40 minutes after the opener but Higuain smashed in Juve’s second from inside the area after 58 minutes.
And, seven minutes from time, Dybala went on a mazy run – with the visiting defence looking tired – and drove home the third.
Juve now have maximum points from their first three games, scoring 10 and conceding just two.

Head coach Max Allegri started a new-look team with Wojciech Szczesny, Blaise Matuidi and Douglas Costa given their first starts of the season.
Giorgio Chiellini and Claudio Marchisio were out injured with Andrea Barzagli and Gianluigi Buffon rested.
The only downside of the Turin win was Mario Mandzukic limping off with a knee injury with a crucial Champions League clash with Barcelona on Tuesday.
But with Dybala in the sort of form that has Allegri comparing him to the world’s best, they might not have a problem.
After Dybala’s game-changing cameo, the Juve boss said: “He has grown technically physically.
“Along with Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, he can become one of the strongest in the world.”
