MILAN, Italy (AFP) — Paulo Dybala scored a double as Juventus outclassed 10-man Torino 4-0 in yesterday's Turin derby to stay top of Serie A alongside Napoli who battled past SPAL 3-2.

The Argentine striker has now scored an impressive 10 goals — including two hat-tricks — in six Serie A games with Miralem Pjanic and Alex Sandro also on target at the Allianz Stadium.

Juventus kept their perfect start, but for Torino it was a first defeat of the campaign as they struggled a man down for over an hour after Daniele Baselli was sent off for a second yellow card.

Earlier Napoli came from a goal down to beat SPAL 3-2 for their sixth win in as many games as AS Roma cruised past Udinese 3-1, to give all of Italy's Champions League contenders confidence boosts ahead of next week's action.

Maurizio Sarri's Napoli are ahead of the champions on goal difference with 22 scored with Roma moving up to fourth on 12 points and Torino drop to sixth with 11.

Dybala opened the scoring after 16 minutes from the edge of the box following great work by Pjanic to win the ball off Tomas Rincon in midfield.

A Pjanic free kick five minutes before the break gave Juventus their second with Sandro heading in the third after 57 minutes.

Goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu did well to deny the hosts more but could do nothing to stop Dybala's fourth in stoppage time leaving Torino waiting for a first victory at Juventus since 1995.

Despite their Serie A run Massimiliano Allegri's side lost their Champions League opener 0-3 at Barcelona, and next host Greek champions Olympiakos on Wednesday.
