Turin, Italy: Dusan Vlahović stole the show with a stunning brace, propelling Juventus to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Sassuolo in Serie A on Tuesday night. The Bianconeri's 17th unbeaten match across all competitions puts them just two points behind league leaders Inter Milan, igniting talk of a two-horse title race.

Vlahović Magic Opens the Floodgates

The Serbian striker was in imperious form, opening the scoring in the 15th minute with a curling rocket from 25 yards. He doubled his tally with a magnificent free-kick that kissed the crossbar before nestling into the net just before halftime. Vlahović's clinical finishing proved the difference against a well-organized Sassuolo defense.

Chiesa Seals the Deal

Federico Chiesa came off the bench to put the icing on the cake in the final minute, ensuring all three points remained in Turin. His strike further emphasized Juventus' dominance and left Sassuolo floundering just two points above the relegation zone.

Scudetto Dreams Resurface?

Despite Massimiliano Allegri's downplaying of title ambitions, Juventus' relentless march cannot be ignored. Their unbeaten run and close proximity to Inter have fueled speculation of a genuine Scudetto challenge. While Allegri may prefer the underdog tag, the Bianconeri are undeniably lurking in the shadows, ready to pounce if Inter slip up. The February clash between the two sides promises to be a pivotal moment in the title race.
