Italian Round-Up: Tevez brace extends Juventus record
Juventus maintained their 100pc record in Serie A with a 3-0 win at Atalanta, spurred on by two Carlos Tevez goals and a penalty save from Gianluigi Buffon, which means that the champions have still to concede a goal this season.
Tevez gave Juventus a 36th-minute lead when he poked home a loose ball from close range.
The game swung decisively in Juve's direction in 60 remarkable seconds just before the hour.
Atalanta were awarded a penalty after a clumsy challenge by Giorgio Chiellini but, after a stuttering run-up, German Denis saw his weak effort saved by Buffon. Juve went straight down the other end and Tevez scored with a low shot from the edge of the area. Alvaro Morata wrapped up the win by heading his first goal for the Turin team.
Albin Ekdal took advantage of a dramatic Inter Milan collapse to score a 15-minute first-half hat-trick and give Cagliari a 4-1 win at the San Siro.
Napoli eased the pressure on Rafael Benitez with a 1-0 win at Sassuolo, ending a run of three games without a win, and AC Milan were held 1-1 at promoted Cesena.
