Bernardeschi opened the scoring on a Douglas Costa assist (maybe these two should play more?) with a wonder-strike that was volleyed from outside the box. Higuain did well to win the ball back for Juve which led to the goal. The theme of goals from outside the box continued with Paulo Dybala burying a free kick over the wall and into the net to make it 2-0 - Khedira drew the foul.
SPAL got one out of nowhere as Paloschi finished off a goal after out-muscling Lichtsteiner on the back post after a pretty nice set-play on the corner that Juve just didn’t look like they were expecting at all. Federico Mattiello got the assist, at least, and it was a pretty nice ball that he put in as well.
Higuain scored in the second half, and so did Cuadrado. The assist went to Costa.
