Juventus are looking to win Serie A for the sixth season in a row

Champions Juventus continued their winning start to the Serie A season with a 1-0 victory at Lazio.

Germany midfielder Sami Khedira scored for the second successive week with a low drive in the second half.

Gonzalo Higuain, signed for £75.3m in the summer, came off the bench moments before Khedira's goal.

Lazio, who had won their opening game of the season last week, wore a message of remembrance for the victims of the earthquake that hit Italy on Wednesday.

The death toll from the quake currently stands at 290.
