Juventus break down Crotone wall

Crotone frustrated Juventus, but they smashed their way through with Mario Mandzukic, Medhi Benatia and Mattia De Sciglio’s first ever goal.

The Bianconeri needed a boost after one point from their last two competitive games, but despite having 81% possession in the first half, they were locked on 0-0.

Benedikt Howedes was given his Serie A debut and was left with a bloody nose following an accidental collision with Ante Budimir.

Mandzukic finally got the breakthrough by steering in Andrea Barzagli’s cross with his looping header.

That opened the floodgates, followed by a scorcher from De Sciglio – his first ever professional goal at the 173rd game – and a Benatia tap-in.

It allowed Juventus to equal their own record by scoring for 43 consecutive Serie A games.
