Mario Mandzukic's header was his first Juventus goal of the season

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini scored two headers as the Serie A champions beat Sampdoria.

The league leaders took a two-goal lead within nine minutes thanks to headers from Mario Mandzukic and Chiellini.

Czech youngster Patrik Schick pulled one back for Sampdoria on 57 minutes on his first Serie A start.

Miralem Pjanic smashed home for Juve and Chiellini headed home a fourth from a cross by Juan Cuadrado, who had also set up Mandzukic's opener.

Second-placed Roma remain within two points of Juve after beating Sassuolo 3-1.

Edin Dzeko scored twice to become the first player to score 10 Serie A goals this season.
