Juventus returns to winning ways with victory over Salernitana

Juventus bounced back from consecutive defeats by beating Salernitana.

The hosts are bottom of Serie A in their first season and in the top flight since 1999.

They were the ideal opposition for Juventus after their 4-0 defeat at Chelsea and 1-0 home loss to Atalanta.

Paulo Dybala hammered in their opener before Giorgio Chiellini had a goal ruled out by VAR.

Alvaro Morata poked home Juve’s second soon after coming on and Dybala slipped as he missed an injury-time penalty.

Juventus are now seventh in Serie A, 11 points behind leaders Napoli.

Elsewhere, fourth-placed Atalanta beat Venezia 4-0 with Mario Pasalic scoring a hat-trick and Fiorentina overcame Sampdoria 3-1.

Dusan Vlahovic scored his 39th Serie A goal in that victory for Fiorentina.

Erling Braut Haaland is the only player born in the 2000s to score more goals in Europe’s top five leagues.
