Juventus arrested their recent skid of poor results in Serie A against Bologna to show some signs of life in their title challenge.
Spurred on by the home crowd, Filip Kostic, Dusan Vlahovic and Arkadiusz Milik all found the net to secure a 3-0 win over the visitors to ease some pressure on manager Max Allegri.
Weston McKennie sent the early warning signs with a well-directed header in the 13th minute from a Kostic cross but his effort was easily dealt with by Lukasz Skorupski.
Kostic then opened the scoring himself in the 24th minute after being played through by his countryman Vlahovic for his first Serie A goal.
Skorupski then denied Arkadiusz Milik before halftime to keep his side in the contest despite growing pressure.
Juventus were eventually rewarded for this supremacy when Vlahovic headed in McKennie’s cross in the 59th minute before Milik fired in the third goal from inside the box just three minutes later to sink Bologna.
Both Vlahovic and Milik then went close with their efforts once again but failed to find the target.
The win leaves Juventus in seventh place on 13 points but they trail leaders Napoli by a significant margin of seven points. They next visit fourth-placed AC Milan in Serie A looking to get their campaign back on track.
