Juventus may well have crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of German giants Bayern Munich last week, but they produced the required response this past weekend. 

Playing in a derby showdown against Torino, Massimiliano Allegri's side emphatically secured a 4-1 victory to maintain their three-point lead at the summit of Serie A. 

There were a number of positives to take away from the game for the current Italian champions; goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon set a league record after going 974 minutes without conceding a goal.

The legendary shot-stopper was beaten soon after, however, as Andrea Belotti netted from the penalty spot, but that didn't stop Juve comfortably claiming the points on a fine afternoon for all involved. 

Buffon's record, understandably, obtained the majority of the headlines, but the brilliance of Paul Pogba once again shone through. 

Brilliant Pogba 

The former Manchester United player was at his sublime best as he produced two magical moments during the contest. 

The first was the game's opening goal: curling a beautiful free-kick over the opposition's wall, the dynamic midfielder handed his side the lead just after the half-hour mark. 

His strike was brilliant, but, arguably, his assist was just as good; Pogba turned his defender inside out before playing a looping ball over the top for striker Alvaro Morata, who finished in style.

The long-term future of Pogba has been the subject of debate for some time, but, as it stands, there's no real reason for him to leave Turin behind.

At just 23, he still has time on his side and appears to be heading in the right direction in Serie A. Of course, if some of the biggest clubs in world football, including Barcelona and Real Madrid, come in for him, then it won't be easy to turn them down, but he should think twice before leaving the Italian giants behind. 

At Juventus, he will only continue to improve and it's crucial that he proceeds to learn the game in pursuit of becoming the best midfielder in world football. 

Pogba's most definitely heading in that direction and it will be interesting to see where he eventually ends up after his spell at Juventus. It's important that he makes the right decision as he doesn't want to end up regretting his next move. It will be the biggest one of his career.
