Juventus cruised to a 4-1 victory over 10-man Lazio in Serie A on Saturday as the capital club fell to another hefty defeat at the hands of the defending champion.
Lazio was looking to avenge its 4-0 Super Cup loss to Juventus two weeks ago, but two world-class finishes from Arturo Vidal sent Juventus on its way to another victory.
Miroslav Klose reduced the deficit with his first goal against Juventus but Mirko Vucinic restored the home side's two-goal advantage shortly after halftime.
Lazio was forced to play nearly half an hour with 10 men after Hernanes was sent off for a second yellow card. And Carlos Tevez - who had earlier hit the crossbar - scored his third goal in as many games.
Last year's runner-up Napoli beat Chievo Verona 4-2.
