It took another step toward that third shield with a 5-0 shellacking at Cagliari on Monday, extending its unbeaten away run in league play to a remarkable 26 matches.

The finishing touches was applied by Mario Rui, who froze keeper Alessio Cragno with this free kick. The 26-year-old Portuguese left back picked a fine goal for his first Serie A marker.

Juve has played one less match thanks to a postponed meeting with Atalanta.
