Result: Fernando Llorente fires Juventus to victory over Verona

Juventus make it three wins from four matches in Serie A as Fernando Llorente gets his first for the club in a 2-1 home win over Hellas Verona.

Juventus have maintained their unbeaten start in Serie A with a 2-1 win over Hellas Verona, Fernando Llorente firing the winner on his first start for the Bianconeri.

Antonio Conte's side were heavy favourites for the clash but fell behind on 37 minutes when Verona broke the deadlock through Fabrizio Cacciatore, who tapped home unmarked after meeting a flick-on at the far post.

Juve responded quickly and nearly restored parity in the next passage of play, with Paul Pogba's acrobatic effort cleared off the line by Daniele Cacia.

Just moments later Juve were level as Carlos Tevez met Leonardo Bonucci's through-ball, controlling before steering a fierce strike just inside the far post.

In first-half stoppage time Llorente broke his duck to complete a swift turnaround, heading home Arturo Vidal's cross with authority.

Pogba saw a venomous right-footed effort hit the woodwork as Juve pressed to extend their advantage after the break, with Andrea Pirlo also denied as his free kick was turned round the post.

Claudio Marchisio made his return from injury to help Conte's side close out the match late on, with Verona unable to muster a response.
