Match ends, Juventus 2, Palermo 0.
Defending champions Juventus kept up their unbeaten start in Serie A with victory over lowly Palermo.
Midfielder Arturo Vidal gave them the lead when he fired across Palermo keeper Stefano Sorrentino after being slipped in by Carlos Tevez.
Vidal and Claudio Marchisio wasted chances to double their lead but they were not to be denied a second.
The game was sealed when Fernando Llorente headed his first goal of the season from Andrea Pirlo's corner.
It was almost 3-0 in injury-time but Sebastian Giovinco's venomous effort from outside the box came back off the post.
Juventus's victory saw them move three points clear of second-placed Roma, who drew 0-0 at Sampdoria on Saturday.
