Juventus opened the season the way they finished - dominant.
The first half had a few blemishes, with Cagliari getting a couple of good chances, and Gianluigi having to stop a pen after a VAR reviewed Alex Sandro foul in the box. Mandzukic opened the scoring on a Stephan Lichtsteiner cross, and Dybala continued it off of a Miralem Pjanic gorgeous through ball.
The second half was much of the same. Alex Sandro sent a ball in and Gonzalo Higuain finished it off nicely. Khedira replaced Marchisio in the 62nd minute, Matuidi for Higuain in the 71st, and Douglas Costa for Cuadrado in the 74th.
Now that the match is over, it’s time to rate the players.
