Juventus in Champions League form with Higuain and Pjanic

ROME (AP) -- Juventus' two prized acquisitions were on full display in a convincing 3-1 win over Sassuolo in Serie A on Saturday.

Gonzalo Higuain scored twice in the opening 10 minutes and Miralem Pjanic added another before the break as the Bianconeri warmed up for a Champions League it has designs on winning.

Trailing 3-0, Luca Antei pulled one back for visiting Sassuolo.

Higuain and Pjanic were each making their first starts for Juventus after transferring from rivals Napoli and Roma, respectively.

Juventus, aiming to become the first club to win Serie A for six consecutive years, has a full nine points from the opening three rounds.

Later, last season's runner-up, Napoli, was visiting Palermo.
