Dusan Vlahovic’s first brace of the 2023/24 Serie A season inspired Juventus to an overwhelming 3-1 home triumph over Lazio on Saturday afternoon. Speaking to the press in the aftermath, the Serbia international admitted Massimiliano Allegri’s men have “a point to prove” this season.

Vlahovic found a perfect way to make amends for wasting a penalty in a 2-0 win at Empoli on the eve of the international break. The 23-year-old opened the scoring at the Allianz Stadium, latching onto Manuel Locatelli’s cross to put Juventus in front only ten minutes into the proceedings.
