In their first match of season 2017/2018, Juventus beat Cagliari by 3:0. Despite a mellow defense the Bianconeri held a solid advantage throughout the match.

With goals by Mandžukić, Dybala and Higuaín, they were able to ease into the final thirty minutes.

Today represents a milestone for the entire Serie A, with the first ever use of VAR (video assistant referee) in Italy. The technology was used to prove a penalty for Cagliari. It was stopped by Buffon in the 37th minute of the match.
