Juventus are now within nine points of the fourth and final Champions League place after winning 4-2 over Sampdoria in Turin.

The Bianconeri used a dominating second half to score twice in the final twenty minutes and bounced back from their defeat last weekend against Roma.

Despite having to overhaul his starting formation, Max Allegri’s men did well to bounce back after their 2-0 first half lead disappeared within minutes.

Just after the half hour mark, Tommaso Augello and Filip Djuricic hit the hosts for back to back goals within the span of 70 seconds to draw level 2-2 entering halftime.

However, Juve shook off their disappointing first half performance and ran riot over Samp in the final period. They regained the lead just after the hour mark when Adrian Rabiot controlled the ball beautiful before hammering it into the back of the net.

Matías Soulé wrapped up the result in the final minutes of the match, securing his first senior goal in the process.
