Carlos Tevez is hoping to end a four-year goal-scoring drought in the Champions League

Argentina striker Carlos Tevez scored his first goal of the season as Juventus beat Udinese 2-0 in manager Massimiliano Allegri's home bow.

The Italian champions made it two wins from two in Serie A ahead of Tuesday's Champions League visit of Malmo.

Tevez opened the scoring from close range before Claudio Marchisio powered in a low shot after the break.

Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole helped Roma maintain their winning start with a 1-0 victory at Empoli.

Belgium midfielder Radja Nainggolan's low drive struck the post and bounced into the net off the back of keeper Luigi Sepe for the only goal.

Juventus boss Allegri, 46, was sacked by AC Milan in January but replaced Antonio Conte in July.

Former Manchester City and Manchester United striker Tevez has now scored 20 goals in his 36 Serie A appearances as Juventus continued where they left off last season, when they won all 19 of their home league matches.
