Juventus had little trouble disposing of promoted Cesena after Vidal, seemingly fully recovered from a knee injury, converted a penalty after 18 minutes following a handball.

The Chilean was on target again with a long-range shot in the 64th minute and Stephan Lichtsteiner burst clear to fire the third with five minutes left.

Roma were on the point of dropping their first points of the season until Pjanic scored with a dipping free kick with two minutes to go.

Osvaldo's goal against Atalanta was even more spectacular as the former Southampton and AS Roma player met Fredy Guarin's free kick with a scissors kick. Brazilian Hernanes added Inter's second with a free kick.

Juan Cuadrado and Borja Valero both hit the post as Fiorentina, where striker Mario Gomez was missing with a thigh strain, were held by Sassuolo.
