MILAN (AP) Paulo Dybala continued his astonishing start to the season as he netted twice to help Juventus beat 10-man Torino 4-0 in a Serie A derby on Saturday. Miralem Pjanic and Alex Sandro scored the others after Torino midfielder Daniele Baselli was sent off after 24 minutes of the Derby della Mole. Dybala took his tally to 10 goals in the opening six league matches, just one less than he scored in the whole of the last campaign.
Vincenzo Montella insists AC Milan are "fired up" for a tough run of fixtures, beginning with Sunday's trip to Sampdoria. Montella's new-look squad have won four of their opening five fixtures in Serie A, with the overhaul bankrolled by owner Yonghong Li's Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux group falling swiftly into space. After what Montella believes will be an "emotional" encounter with his former club Samp in Genoa, Milan host Roma and take on Inter in the first derby of the campaign after the international break.
Napoli forward Arkadiusz Milik could face knee surgery for a second consecutive season. The Poland international limped off during the closing stages of Saturday's 3-2 win at SPAL, where Maurizio Sarri's men extended their 100 per cent start in Serie A. Milik's debut campaign in Naples was hindered by cruciate ligament damage sustained on international duty last October and, although he told reporters after the match his latest setback is "not like last time", the club refused to rule out the surgical route after initial tests on the 23-year-old.
