Juventus maintained their perfect start to the Serie A season with a 3-0 home win over Chievo capped by a superb individual goal from Paulo Dybala. The champions have taken nine points from their opening three games as they chase a seventh successive title.
Chievo gave Juventus a helping hand when Perparim Hetemaj inadvertently headed Miralem Pjanic’s free-kick into his own goal at the near post after 17 minutes.

• Griezmann booked twice before Atlético Madrid bounce back from 2-0 down
• Juventus win opener after Cagliari miss penalty awarded by video assistant
Atlético Madrid demonstrated their remarkable team spirit to come roaring back from two goals and a man down to draw 2-2 at promoted Girona, after Antoine Griezmann had been sent off for the first time in his career.
Girona looked set to enjoy a dream top-flight debut when Cristhian Stuani rose to head in a sweeping cross from Alex Granell midway through the first half and three minutes later showed his predator’s instinct to nod in a loose ball from close range. Griezmann was then dismissed for two successive bookings, one for diving to try and win a penalty and another for dissent.

• Coach makes journey to celebrate his club avoiding relegation
• Also highlights road safety three years after death of his son
Two months ago the Crotone coach, Davide Nicola, with his team looking set for relegation to the Italian second division, promised he would cycle the 1,300km to his home town in Turin if they escaped the drop.
Crotone went on to pull off one of the greatest escapes in Serie A history and on Sunday Nicola fulfilled his promise as he arrived in Turin after nine days of solid pedalling from the southern region of Calabria.

Milan hit back from two goals behind and equalised with the last kick of the game to force an extraordinary 2-2 draw against Internazionale on Saturday as the historic derby was played at lunchtime for the first time and with both clubs under Chinese ownership.
Inter appeared to be cruising after Antonio Candreva and Mauro Icardi scored to give them a 2-0 half-time lead before Alessandro Romagnoli pulled one back with seven minutes left. Milan then won a corner in the seventh minute of stoppage time, Inter failed to clear and Cristián Zapata managed to force the ball back towards goal at the far post.
