Juve continue perfect start

Juventus’ perfect start to the new season continued tonight as they posted a 2-0 win at Lazio to jump to the top of the Serie A standings.

Ciro Ferrara’s side moved three points clear at the summit thanks to second-half strikes by Martin Caceres (72) and David Trezeguet (90), although they will see that lead wiped out if Genoa and Sampdoria win their games in hand tomorrow.

The victory was Juve’s second successive Serie A triumph at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. The Bianconeri triumphed 3-1 at Roma in their last match before the international break thanks to two goals from top summer signing Diego.

Defeat for Lazio was their first of the season after also kicking off their campaign with two wins. Davide Ballardini’s side remain in fourth place.

In the day’s other game, AC Milan’s disappointing start to the season continued as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Livorno.

The Rossoneri looked bereft of ideas as they failed to make amends for their 4-0 defeat to Inter Milan a fortnight ago with a lacklustre display in Tuscany.

The draw was a fair result as Milan moved to just four points from their first three games while Livorno picked up the second point of their return to the top flight.
