Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala help Juventus ease past Chievo


Argentina stars Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala combined to steer Serie A champions Juventus to a 3-0 victory over Chievo in Turin. The Bianconeri were dominant but wasteful across a first half in which Chievo midfielder Perparim Hetemaj gave them the lead through an unfortunate own goal. Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri introduced Dybala from the bench following the break and the tricky forward inspired Higuain's fine finish before rubber-stamping the three points himself. After dispatching Chievo, the Champions League finalists face the trickier prospect of a European curtain-raiser against Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night. Juve flattered to deceive in their last league outing before the international break, a 4-2 comeback victory at Genoa, and so they needed to start convincingly here.
