Goals from Sofia Cantore, Arianna Caruso and Annahita Zamanian were enough for Juventus to beat ASD Pomigliano 3-0 on Saturday as the reigning champions bounced back from a disappointing one-all draw against Sassuolo last Saturday.
Cantore, who started in the place of the injured Girelli, opened the account for the hosts with a strike 12 minutes into the second half with an assist from defender Amanda Nildén before Caruso doubled the lead with a strike on 81 minutes with an assist from recent signing Evelina Duljan.

Midfielder Alice Parisi opened the scoring for the hosts with a strike 19 minutes into the first half with an assist from forward Michela Catena before last season’s Serie A golden boot winner Daniela Sabatino put the match to bed from the penalty spot in the first minute of first half extra-time.

AC Milan condemned Sampdoria to their second consecutive defeat of the season with a 2-1 result at the Centro Sportivo Peppino Vismara on Saturday.

Asllani returned to complete her brace making it 2-1 for Milan just three minutes after the break with an assist from former Sassuolo midfielder Kamila Dubcová.
