Juventus make it two wins from two in Serie A this season with a comfortable 4-1 victory over 10-man Lazio.

Juventus have continued their perfect start to the new Serie A season with a 4-1 win over 10-man Lazio.

The hosts took the lead after just 16 minutes when Paul Pogba clipped a pass behind the Lazio defence that Arturo Vidal latched onto to make it 1-0.

Vidal doubled his personal tally just over 10 minutes later when he peeled off his man to collect Leonardo Bonucci's cross before taking a touch and placing his effort into the far corner.

Lazio responded immediately, however, pulling a goal back within three minutes when Miroslav Klose took advantage of a rare Gianluigi Buffon error to slot home the rebound.

Juventus restored their two-goal advantage shortly after the restart when Mirko Vucinic lost his marker to latch onto a Bonucci ball, controlling it and then stabbing home from close range.

Things got even harder for the visitors just past the hour mark when Hernanes handled inside the opposition box, prompting the referee to show him a second yellow card.

They were almost 4-1 down shortly afterwards when Carlos Tevez curled a shot against the crossbar after good link-up play with Vidal.

Tevez did get on the scoresheet with just under 10 minutes to go, finding space to shoot from the edge of the box and curling an effort past Federico Marchetti.
