Mandzukic volleyed home a sublime delivery from Lichtsteiner to open the scoring and mark Juventus’ first goal of the Serie A campaign.
With the help of the new VAR system, the referee awarded Cagliari a lifeline in the form of a penalty.
However, Farias failed to make it count from the spot and Buffon comes out as the hero.
Dybala, who excelled from the off, doubled Juve’s lead with a bursting run into the box, followed by a swiping strike into the top corner.
Veteran Higuain bagged the third with a low strike past Cragno and into the far post netting.

Higuain bagged 32 goals in all competitions for Massimiliano Allegri’s side, followed by Dybala with 19 and Mandzukic with 11.
Cagliari showed little menace moving forward and looked unorganised throughout.
Juventus will face Genoa in Serie A next Saturday in a bid to continue their fine league form.
