Japan forward Kyogo Furuhashi scored his fourth goal of the season and had an assist as Celtic cruised to a 3-0 win over Dundee in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Furuhashi doubled Celtic's lead in the 63rd minute when last season's top scorer timed his run superbly to sneak behind the visitors' backline and steer a header into the top corner off Callum McGregor's floated ball into the box.

Furuhashi's cutback from the byline set up Matt O'Riley to complete the scoring four minutes later at Celtic Park. David Turnbull's penalty had given the home side the lead in the 51st minute.

In Italy, Daichi Kamada had an assist but could do no more to prevent last season's runners-up Lazio from losing 3-1 away to Juventus for their third defeat in four games in the new Serie A season.

Trailing 2-0, Kamada robbed Andrea Cambiaso and Luis Alberto picked up the loose ball before curling home from the edge of the box to halve the deficit in the 64th minute at Allianz Stadium.

Well-taken strikes from inside the box by Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa gave Juventus a half-time lead and Vlahovic got his second of the match in the 67th minute when he found the bottom corner from outside the area.
