However, the referee awarded a penalty and Dybala converted to complete his hat-trick in the 74th minute and put the Turin side 3-2 ahead. Substitute Douglas Costa then completed the scoring with eight minutes left. Dybala put Juve ahead in the 16th minute, scoring with a curling shot from the edge of the area, but Cheick Diabate levelled for Benevento from close range eight minutes later. Juventus went back in front in first half stoppage time after Miralem Pjanic was tripped and Dybala converted the first penalty of the afternoon, but Diabate headed Benevento level again six minutes into the second half.

Juve's win took them seven points clear of second-placed Napoli who host Chievo Sunday. Benevento coach Roberto De Zerbi did not want to comment on the penalties. Fiorentina, seventh with 50 points, won their sixth match in a row when first-half goals from Marco Benassi and Giovanni Simeone gave them a 2-0 win at third-placed AS Roma, who have 60 points.
