Gonzalo Higuain
Gonzalo Higuain scored his 26th league goal for Juventus

Serie A champions Juventus maintained their 100% winning start to the season with a comfortable victory over Chievo.

The hosts went in front through Perparim Hetemaj's own goal after the Finnish midfielder inadvertently headed in from Miralem Pjanic's cross.

Bosnian midfielder Pjanic had an effort tipped on to the crossbar.

But striker Gonzalo Higuain smashed in Juve's second from inside the area and Paulo Dybala converted a low finish following a mazy run.
