Paulo Dybala continued his electrifying start to the season bagging a hat trick at Seria A stragglers Sassuolo to send Juve joint top with Inter Milan.
The Argentine opened the scoring in the first-half in spectacular fashion as he fired home from 25 yards out, and later completed his hat trick with a neatly place free-kick.
Sassuolo had just one consolation to the game, an early second-half tap in by Matteo Politano gave the home side some hope. But all hope was dismantled when Dybala’s keen eye for goal guided his free-kick in for the win.

Dybala celebrates with boss Massimiliano Allegri as his team equal Inter Milan at the summit
Juventus – coming off the back of a torrid display losing 3-0 to Barcelona in their Champions League opener on Tuesday night – continued their 100 per cent start to the Serie A season, a record also held by fellow leaders Inter, Napoli and AC Milan.
Naturally, the Italian champions and last season’s Champions League finalists, came out the blocks all guns blazing, with Gonzalo Higuain coming closest to opening the score early on as his effort was easily saved by goalkeeper Andrea Consigli.
A rare attack then saw the hosts surge forward, but Stefano Sensi’s strike blazed over the bar and Massimiliano Allegri’s side would soon be level courtesy of the Argentine talisman Dybala.

Dybala took advantage of some lack-luster defending and having been given too much space showed just why he is on the watch-list of so many European giants. #
Assisted by mario Mandzukic, Dybala latched onto a well waited pass across the pitch and wrapped his left boot around the ball, whipping it past the hopeless Consigli into the right of the Sassuolo net.
