Dybala flourishes with hat-trick in Ronaldo's absence

Juventus 3 Young Boys 0 Dybala hits hat-trick as Ronaldo watches

Julen Lopetegui's side somewhat surprisingly lost 1-0 to CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

Arguably the best player on the night, Dybala missed a sitter, hit the post and had a penalty appeal turned down, but he completed his hat trick on 69 minutes when he tapped in Juan Caudrado's cross from close range to ensure the Turin giants continue their flawless start to the season with nine wins from nine games in all competitions.

Real Madrid have failed to score in three consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since January 2007.

"We saw the difference between the two teams".

I wasn't getting to the team, so I came to CSKA and am very happy to be here and playing in big games like this.

"It's good that he will be with us in Manchester but it's important that he rests as well as he's already played a lot of games for us".

Hoffenheim scored even earlier - after 44 seconds, to be precise - against Manchester City, which fought back to win 2-1 and revive its Champions League challenge after opening with a loss.

Apart from the Ronaldo factor, Navas rued their missed chances; "We are sad because they had one chance and took it". "We needed to score more goals today and we had the opportunities".

"No doubt, we'll get back to winning ways".

"They are solid in defence and organised".

The former Sporting CP has admired the Bianconeri ever since they tried to sign him as a teenager and he believes his chances of delivering Champions League glory to the Allianz Stadium are pretty high.

"You have to ask the coach about that".

"We need to understand who our opponents were, multiple European champions and they were incredibly strong".

In a statement on twitter (below), the club said the following: "Cristiano Ronaldo has shown in recent months his great professionalism and dedication, which is appreciated by everyone at Juventus".

But, at the same time, Goncharenko was apprehensive over a possible ban for Akinfeev following his red card.

However, Danjuma, who is still undecided over whether to commit his global future to Holland or Nigeria, said he was not totally happy, since his team lost 3-1.
