The Bianconeri bounced back brilliantly from defeat to Inter the previous weekend by romping to a 4-0 victory at Juventus Stadium against Cagliari.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men might have taken the lead inside the first ten minutes were it not for former Bianconero stopper Marco Storari’s heroics, keeping out a firm header and an intuitive close-range strike from Gonzalo Higuain.
The home fans would only have to wait until the 14th minute before celebrating their side taking the lead, however, when Storari’s parry on Higuain’s volley from a free-kick fell at the feet of Daniele Rugani, who hooked into the net for his first ever goal for Juventus.
Despite being thwarted in the opening stages, Higuain still very much fancied his chances of continuing his rich scoring form. After hitting the post with a wonderful shot on the turn, the Argentine buried the ball past Storari for his fourth goal in as many league outings.
And the Bianconeri made it 3-0 before the break when Dani Alves belted in from outside the box, the Brazilian right-back opening his Serie A tally in some style.
