Di Maria, Martinez, Sevilla, Monaco and Juve


AS Roma 2 Juventus 1: Watch the match highlights

Defending champions Juventus have lost their opening two Serie A games of the season for the first time in their history, with Roma deserved victors. Roma, runners-up for the past two years, led when Miralem Pjanic, who also hit the post, lifted a fine free-kick over the wall. Juventus had Patrice Evra sent off after 77 minutes for two yellow cards. Edin Dzeko doubled the lead with a header, although Paulo Dybala ensured a tense finish with a close-range strike. Leonardo Bonucci almost rescued a draw with an injury-time header but Wojciech Szczesny, who is on loan from Arsenal, did brilliantly to tip it wide. Juve have won four consecutive titles, but their bid for number five looks in trouble already following an opening-day 1-0 defeat by Udinese and now this. Massimiliano Allegri's side, who won the title by 17 points last year, sold star midfielders Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal, as well as top scorer Carlos Tevez, in the summer. And hours before kick-off, teenage winger Kingsley Coman joined Bayern Munich. Roma overran them in midfield, with Paul Pogba not looking as effective without Pirlo and Vidal helping him out.

Sevilla 0 Atletico Madrid 3: Watch the match highlights

Atletico Madrid made it two wins from two games with victory at fellow Champions League side Sevilla. The visitors enjoy easy win over Sevilla as Koke ends his goal drought and Jackson Martinez came off the bench to score his first Atletico Madrid goal in a 3-0 win over Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The 28-year-old Colombian forward moved to the Spanish capital over the summer after a prolific spell in Portugal with Porto and the South American opened his account with Atleti to cap off a comfortable win for Diego Simeone's men. Spain international Koke prodded in the opener 10 minutes before the interval and Martinez's introduction as a 78th-minute substitute to replace Fernando Torres paid dividends to the tune of two further goals.

Monaco 0 PSG 3: Watch the match highlights

Angel Di Maria set up a goal on his debut as Paris St-Germain maintained their 100% start to the Ligue 1 season with a deserved win at Monaco. The former Manchester United winger, on for the last 25 minutes, teed up Ezequiel Lavezzi to score after Edinson Cavani had struck twice. Cavani powered in a first-half header to round off a 20-pass move. The Uruguay striker slotted in a second after being played through by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, returning from injury. Laurent Blanc's side, winners of the last three league titles, are three points clear at the top of the table, having won four matches without conceding a goal.
