AFP, ROME: Paulo Dybala struck twice as Juventus retook top spot in Serie A from Napoli with a 2-0 victory over Udinese on Sunday, as Fiorentina made an emotional return to action after the death of Davide Astori.

Argentinian Dybala followed his midweek Champions League winner over Tottenham with a match-clinching double, as Massimiliano Allegri's men moved two points clear of Napoli.

Gonzalo Higuain missed a first-half penalty, but Juve took another comfortable step towards a seventh consecutive league title. Brazilian Vitor Hugo scored the only goal in the 25th minute, celebrating by making a salute towards a photo of Astori on the side of the pitch.

Juventus went into their home clash with Udinese knowing victory would pile the pressure on Napoli ahead of their title rivals’ trip to Inter Milan later on Sunday.

The 24-year-old Dybala continued his excellent run of form by curling a magnificent free-kick into the top corner to give the hosts a 20th-minute lead. Higuain missed a chance to double the advantage before half-time as he saw his spot-kick kept out by Udinese goalkeeper Albano Bizzarri.

But the deadly partnership of Higuain and Dybala, who have scored 42 goals between them in all competitions this season, combined again to finish off the match as a contest.

The 30-year-old Higuain used his strength to hold off the Udinese defence, before sliding in Dybala with a clever pass and his compatriot did the rest to net his fourth goal in three matches.
