But it was AS Roma who garnered eyeballs with some wondrous goals in a blowout at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma 4-0 Frosinone

I Lupi smashed the newly-promoted visitors behind two sensational goals in the first half-hour and markers from Stephan El Shaarawy and Aleksandar Kolarov.

Cenzig Under got the scoring started with a nutmeg-inducing, mazey dribble and blast in the second minute, and Javier Pastore doubled the advantage with a sweeping back leg redirection in the 28th.

Juventus 2-0 Bologna

Two goals in four minutes from Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi were the lone markers as Juve moved to 6-0. Dybala’s goal was assisted by Cristiano Ronaldo, giving the Portuguese star three goals and an assist in his last three Serie A matches.

Napoli 3-0 Parma

Lorenzo Insigne put the favored hosts ahead after four minutes, and Arkadiusz Milik scored in each half as Napoli kept pace with unbeaten Juventus.
