Morata & Dybala Fire Juve To Big Thrashing

UEFA Champions League

Result: Ferencvaros 1-4 Juventus

Date: 04 November 2020

Venue: Puskás Aréna 

Juventus got back to winning ways in the UEFA Champions League group stages with a 4-1 thrashing of Ferencvaros on Wednesday night.

Cristiano Ronaldo was re-called to the starting line-up after bagging a brace in 20 minutes at Spezia on his return action after recovering from Covid-19.

The visitors got off to the perfect start as Juan Cuadrado raced down right flank before picking out Alvaro Morata, who made no mistake from six-yards out on eight minutes.

Juventus could have had a second goal 10 minutes later after Ronaldo looked to set up Cuadrado in the box, but the latter was unable to squeeze home his strike.

The hosts, meanwhile, had no answer for the Italian champions in the first half as Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny enjoyed a quiet opening 45 minutes.

There was some bad news for Andrea Pirlo just after the break as Aaron Ramsey was forced off with an injury and replaced by Weston McKennie.

The injury did not damper Juventus' attitude as they bagged the second goal on 60 minutes, with Morata bagging his second with a stunning first-time finish off Ronaldo's pass.

The third goal arrived with 13 minutes left on the clock as Dybala pounced an error from goalkeeper Dénes Dibusz to slot into an empty net.

There was a fourth goal seven minutes later as Dybala was gifted his second goal of the night after yet another poor pass out by Dibusz.

Franck Boli did manage to give the home fans something shout about when slotted home from close range on 90 minutes with a consolation goal.
