Paulo Dybala left the field in tears shortly after scoring to set Juventus on the way to a 3-2 victory over Sampdoria in Serie A on Sunday.

Dybala has endured a number of muscular injuries over the years and it appeared as if he had suffered another one after pulling up suddenly. The Juventus forward was able to walk off and was consoled by his teammates as he did so but will miss Wednesday’s Champions League match against Chelsea.

Leonardo Bonucci converted a penalty and Manuel Locatelli scored his first goal for Juventus. Maya Yoshida and Antonio Candreva kept the match alive for Sampdoria.

It was an unconvincing win for Juve and only its second of the season. It lifted the Bianconeri up to ninth, eight points behind Serie A leader AC Milan. Napoli can move two points above Milan if it maintains its perfect record with a win at home to Cagliari later Sunday

In Turin, Juventus was keen to build on its first win midweek and it started brightly.

Dybala gave it the lead with a delightful strike into the bottom right corner from outside the area in the 10th minute and the Bianconeri could have extended their lead before the 27-year-old was forced off after pulling up injured, clutching the back of his leg.

The tempo fell after that but Bonucci drilled a powerful penalty into the bottom left corner two minutes from the break to double Juve’s lead after a handball from Nicola Murru. It was a first penalty in Serie A for Bonucci, who has taken spot kicks for Italy.

But Sampdoria pulled one back a minute later. Mattia Perin did well to parry Fabio Quagliarella’s effort but the resulting corner was taken short and Candreva whipped in a cross for Yoshida to head into the far side of the net.

Juventus restored its two-goal advantage 12 minutes into the second half. Locatelli started and finished the move after great work by Federico Chiesa and Dejan Kulusevski.

Candreva scored for Samp seven minutes from time to set up a nervy finale for Juve.

DERBY DEFEAT

José Mourinho’s first derby as Roma coach ended in a 3-2 defeat at Lazio. It was all smiles for opposition coach Maurizio Sarri as he held up the Lazio Eagle to fans in celebration.

Sergej Milinković-Savić bravely put Lazio ahead in the 10th minute as he headed in Felipe Anderson’s cross but was clattered by Roma goalkeeper Rui Patrício. His teammates immediately called over the medics but the Lazio midfielder was able to get gingerly to his feet and continue.Lazio's Ciro Immobile shields the ball from Roma's Roger Ibanez, left, during a Serie A soccer match between Lazio and Roma, at Rome's Olympic Stadium, Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021.

Former Roma forward Pedro doubled Lazio’s lead nine minutes later following a swift counterattack. Ciro Immobile raced down the left flank from inside his own half and rolled the ball across the outside of the area for Pedro to drill into the bottom right corner.

Nicolò Zaniolo headed a corner onto the post in the 27th but Roma did pull one back in similar fashion four minutes before the break as a glancing header from Ibañez flew into the far top corner.

Immobile also set up Lazio’s third goal in the 63rd as he drew two defenders, giving Felipe Anderson space to score.

Jordan Veretout reduced the deficit from the penalty spot six minutes later after Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro was judged to have fouled Zaniolo.Lazio's Pedro, 2nd left, scores his side's second goal past Roma's goalkeeper Rui Patricio during a Serie A soccer match between Lazio and Roma, at Rome's Olympic Stadium, Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021.

Zaniolo almost leveled shortly after with a fantastic strike but Lazio goalkeeper Pepe Reina palmed it away with an equally impressive save.

Lazio moved into sixth, a point behind Roma in fourth.

ANOTHER LOSS

Salernitana remained stuck to the bottom of the table after a 1-0 loss at Sassuolo.

Domenico Berardi’s second-half goal condemned Salernitana to its fifth defeat of the season with one draw.

Empoli beat Bologna 4-2, while Fiorentina won 1-0 at Udinese.
