Juventus beat Bologna as Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi score

Paulo Dybala has been somewhat obscured by Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival at Juventus but the Argentine broke his goal scoring drought on Wednesday.

Dybala scored the opener to set Juventus on its way to a 2-0 win over Bologna in Serie A. Ronaldo, who has netted three goals in his past two league matches, didn't get on the scoresheet but did set up Blaise Matuidi for Juve's second in the 16th minute.

Juventus are the only team with a perfect league record and the Italian champions will be full of confidence ahead of two key matches: against last season's runner-up Napoli on Saturday, and a Champions League group game with Young Boys next week.

Bologna picked up their first win -- and first goal -- against Roma at the weekend but Juventus were in control from the start.

The Bianconeri took the lead in somewhat fortuitous circumstances when a ball over the top came off Dybala's back and fell to Matuidi. His effort was parried away but Dybala acrobatically volleyed it in for his first goal of the season.

Matuidi added the second five minutes later when Ronaldo rolled the ball across the face of the goal for him to slot in from a tight angle.

With the result all but certain, Juventus was content to sit back and relax. Ronaldo almost scored but saw a fierce shot saved by Bologna goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski.
