Juventus 3-0 Cesena

Arturo Vidal

Arturo Vidal scored twice as Juventus breezed past Cesena to keep up their 100% start to the Serie A season.

The champions dominated from the outset and Vidal put them ahead from the penalty spot after Roberto Pereyra's shot struck Emmanuel Cascione's arm.

Vidal doubled his team's lead with a precise strike past keeper Nicola Leali after the break.

The points were secured when Stephan Lichsteiner produced a fine angled finish from Simone Padoin's pass.
