Champions League report: Juventus 3 Young Boys 0

It took Dybala less than five minutes to give Juventus the lead with a delightful chipped volley after a long ball over the top from Leonardo Bonucci.

Bernardeschi's snapshot was only pushed away by David von Ballmoos, then Bernardeschi ran on to a long ball and rolled it across for Dybala, only for La Joya to scuff the finish straight at the goalkeeper.

"But Ronaldo is always Cristiano Ronaldo".

The Argentine doubled his account on 33 minutes when he picked up a rebound from a Blaise Matuidi shot, with Juan Cuadrado setting Dybala up for his third on 69 minutes.

"I wanted to have a game like this", Dybala said, as quoted by Channel News Asia.

That still wasn't enough to satisfy coach Massimiliano Allegri.

"I think this is his best and best goal he has already made for Club Brugge, which was flawless and shows that he is very strong in his head".

Dybala came close to completing his hat trick three minutes into the second half when he dispatched an angled effort past the reach of Von Ballmoos but it bounced off the inside of the left post.

Only four Juventus players have scored a hat trick in the Champions League, including Filippo Inzaghi (twice), Alessandro Del Piero and Arturo Vidal.

After nine trophy laden years with Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo left the club this year for a move to Juventus and has already scored three goals for the Old Lady.

The Swiss played the final quarter of an hour a man down after Guinean centre-back Mohamed Ali Camara was sent off for a second yellow card. They went on to win the match by two unreplied goals and Ronaldo is also expected to return against Manchester United after his ban was reduced to just one match.
