Juventus beat 10-man Udinese 4-0 to move back into second spot in Serie A on Sunday, while Luciano Spalletti's second spell in charge of Roma began with a 1-1 draw against bottom side Hellas Verona.

Paulo Dybala scored twice, including a 25th-minute penalty after Udinese defender Danilo was sent off for bringing down Mario Mandzukic. Dybala also provided two assists for Sami Khedira and Alex Sandro as Juventus dominated the first half.

With its 10th consecutive league win, Juventus moved two points behind Napoli after the Serie A leader's 3-1 win over Sassuolo on Saturday. Inter Milan, which drew at Atalanta on Saturday, was two points further back.

Fiorentina can leapfrog above Inter with a win at AC Milan later. Roma is nine points behind Napoli.
