With the home side in the ascendancy, Morata came off the bench and doubled his side’s lead by deftly flicking a cross through the goalkeeper’s legs in the 70th minute.

Dybala missed a penalty with the final kick of the game as Juve saw out an important victory, coming after back-to-back defeats to Chelsea and Atalanta.

Juventus remain seventh with 24 points, seven adrift of the top-four and 11 behind league leaders Napoli, while Salernitana are bottom with eight points.
