Lasagno put Verona in the lead after half an hour, but then the defensive problems that Hellas has at the beginning of the season under the leadership of new coach Cioffi showed up again. Even before halftime, Kvaracchelija and Osimhen turned the score around. After the break, Henry equalized once more, but the goals of Zieliňský, Lobotka and Politan decided the great victory of the third team of last season.

Juventus led from the 26th minute when summer signing Di María scored on his competitive debut for the club. Another strike was added by Vlahovič from the penalty spot at the end of the first half, and the second top scorer of last year’s Serie A closed the scoring in the 51st minute after Di Marío’s pass. The Old Lady defeated Sassuolo for the third time in a row.
