      An unforgettable night at Juventus Stadium saw the Bianconeri pull off one of their most impressive successes at the ground, surging to a 3-0 win over fellow title contenders Napoli

      Juventus sent out a powerful illustration of their Scudetto title credentials when they last met Napoli on 10 November, outshining their fellow contenders in a 3-0 win that home fans at Juventus Stadium won’t forget in a hurry.

      It was the big occasion, and the ground was ready.

      Juve came flying out of the blocks, and within just two minutes they’d found an opener.

      After Carlos Tevez was awarded the October Player of the Month prize before the game, the Argentine played an important early role as his flick-on towards the centre was pounced on by strike partner Fernando Llorente to poke home the third fastest goal in the 2013/14 Serie A championship at the time.

      Rafa Benitez’s men recovered from the early shock and regrouped to hold the Bianconeri off, managing to ensure it remained 1-0 as the half-time whistle blew.

      They were able to hold on in the early stages after the break, too, but in the 74th minute Andrea Pirlo stepped up and delivered an unstoppable free-kick.

      And the third goal that crowned a spectacular night for the Bianconeri was arguably even better:

      It had been a real triumph for Antonio Conte’s men, the kind of result that can determine a season, and the Juve boss was proud of the way his side had performed.

      The scorer of the opening goal then put the win down to the kind of solid pre-match preparation Conte insists on in Vinovo.

      Pirlo went on to interpret the performance as a sign of Juve’s firm intention to lift a third consecutive Scudetto at the end of the season.

      And Pogba concluded the post-match reaction with a smile as he said:

      If the goals aren't already etched in your memory, you can watch them all again in our video highlights:
