Juventus rebound from Sampdoria setback with comfy win over Crotone

Second-half goals from Mario Mandzukic, Mattia De Sciglio and Medhi Benatia saw reigning champions Juventus recover from their setback at Sampdoria last weekend with a 3-0 win over Crotone in Serie A on Sunday.

Juve could not find a way past the visitors' defence in the first half but Croatian forward Mandzukic finally broke the deadlock seven minutes after the break when he headed in Andrea Barzagli's cross.

De Sciglio made his mark two minutes after coming on, arrowing in his first Serie A goal from the edge of the area, before fellow sub Miralem Pjanic crossed for Benatia to tap in the third with 19 minutes left.

Victory leaves Massimiliano Allegri's men in third place, four points behind leaders Napoli, who they travel to on Friday.
