The first one qas a lovely first time finish off a cross by BONUCCI and DYBALA made it look easy as he gave Juventus the 1-0 lead.

Paulo Dybala scored a hattrick against Young Boys.

And goalkeeper Keylor Navas made a brutally honest admission after the result in Russian Federation, stating that the club clearly do miss Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I wanted a match like this", Dybala said, with a huge smile on his face and clutching the match ball.

There should've been a third on the stroke of half-time when Alex Sandro swung a unsafe ball across the box, but Dybala slipped and Juan Cuadrado completely missed his shot. While no longer the centre of attention following Ronaldo's arrival at the Allianz Stadium, the 24-year-old remains a key part of Massimiliano Allegri's squad.

"But it's in the past now and we can't live off that".

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.

Juan Cuadrado was released on the right and his ball into the area was touched in by Dybala who became the fourth Juventus player to score a Champions League hat-trick.

"Cristiano left the bar very high at Real", Navas said of the Portuguese superstar who signed for Juventus in the summer after nine trophy-laden years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"But I'm always prepared to play".

"Last year I scored many goals at the start and then slowed down, it was nearly the opposite", he said.

It was Young Boys's second defeat of the competition after they lost their opener 3-0 at home to Manchester United.

Young Boys finished with 10 men after defender Mohamed Ali Camara was sent off in the 78th minute after picking up two yellow cards in three minutes.
