Juventus 3 – 0 Young Boys, Dybala Hattrick | UEFA Champions League Highlights

In the absence of a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala scored a hattrick to give Juventus a 3 – 0 victory against Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League yesterday. Ronaldo was sent off in last months 2 – 0 win against Valencia, a decision that was hugely debated about. It was an incident that could have cost him his return to Old Trafford, but the UEFA decided to hand him a one-match ban for his first ever send off in his long and glorious UEFA Champions League career. But his Juventus teammates made light work of his absence as they breezed to a comfortable win, one that was their ninth straight win of the season.

This victory leaves Juventus with six points and at the top of Group H. Their opponents, however, are yet to win a match and are yet to even score a goal in the competition, losing both games 3 goals to nil, a record that is a stark contrast to their Swiss League record of nine wins in nine games. Juventus showed that they are a world class team even without their main man Cristiano Ronaldo and are certainly a force to reckon with even without the Portuguese sensation. 

Juventus took the lead within five minutes with one of the simplest of goals they will ever score. Bonucci sent a long ball over the somewhat flat Young Boys defence and a perfectly timed run from Dybala saw him cushion a well-timed volley smoothly past the goalkeeper. Juventus looked to be in cruise control as they mounted attack after attack on the Young boys defence. Paulo Dybala struck again in the 33rd minute when the Young Boys goalkeeper parried a shot from Matuidi from the edge of the box, that fell into the path of the Argentine international, who tucked the ball into the net neatly. 

Juventus and Dybala then added another when Cuadrado was released on the right wing and his beautifully played ball set up a well-positioned Dybala who finished coolly to become the fourth Juventus player to score  Champions League hattrick. On a day where everything the Argentine touched seemed to turn to gold, it was yet another successful day at the office for Juventus who are tipped to be big contenders for the coveted Champions League title especially after the arrival of a Champions league great in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo. Juventus now will travel to Old Trafford for their next Champions League game. A game that will see Ronaldo return to where it all started for the star man.
