The Argentine duo were in fine form to ensure a perfect start to the year for the defending Serie A champions, who remain in pole position for yet another Scudetto
Gonzalo Higuain struck twice as Serie A leaders Juventus made a strong start to 2017, dispatching Bologna 3-0 to quickly forget their surprise Supercoppa Italiana defeat.
The heavyweights signed off for the mid-season break with a disappointing loss to AC Milan on penalties following a 1-1 extra-time draw in the annual showpiece game.
But there was no sign of a resulting lack of confidence or indeed rust from spending two weeks over the festive period without a competitive fixture.
An early Higuain goal and Paulo Dybala’s penalty saw Massimiliano Allegri’s men quickly take charge of the contest in Turin, the former Napoli striker adding a second nine minutes into the second half.
The result sees the reigning champions restore their four-point advantage over second-placed Roma, ahead of a Coppa Italia last-16 tie at home to Atalanta on Wednesday.
The home team had to make do without experienced defender Patrice Evra, who was left out as he considers a January move away from Turin.
