Juventus won at home against Hellas Verona in a match that will be remembered for the first goal of Dusan Vlahović with his new club. It took him just 13 minutes to score on his debut, thanks to a good pass from Paulo Dybala. The Argentinian striker was replaced in the second half and left the pitch not particularly happy with the manager’s decision. February will be a crucial month for the negotiations for his new contract, with the current one expiring this summer. 

Here’s a look at his first goal in a Juve uniform:

Manager Massimiliano Allegri had all the three main strikers playing together, including Alvaro Morata, who was the catalyst of the action that led to the second goal of the evening, this one from another new signing in Denis Zakaria. With this win, Juventus reached fourth place after Sunday’s defeat by Atalanta, who lost to 17th-place Cagliari.

Elsewhere, Sampdoria played a great game and won 4-0 against Sassuolo for the first victory under Marco Giampaolo since he returned to the bench in January. Former Inter Milan midfielder Stefano Sensi scored as well and this victory drives the club in a safer position in the table. 

Napoli collected an important win against Venezia to bring the Luciano Spalletti’s side just one point from Inter (even if Nerazzurri have a game in hand) with Napoli-Inter to be played next Saturday at the Stadio Maradona.
