That's two for Tevez: two competitive matches and two goals. Not bad for a player who hasn't even settled in properly yet. But football is a universal language and winners have no problem speaking it, wherever they are.
After bagging the fourth in last weekend's Super Cup rout, tonight Carlitos plundered the only goal of the game as Juve edged Sampdoria at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
He's already leading by example but the man himself was keen to stress that he's just getting started.
He revealed: "I'm really happy here but it's not easy to slot into a new playing system, it takes time. Tonight was perfect though: a goal and a win. I'm pleased because it was no easy feat coming here and doing that at such a difficult ground."
