With the win Juventus took sole possession of first place in the group and is in a strong position for their next Champions League match, a trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. "Last season I scored lots early on then ran out of steam", he concluded.

Paulo DYBALA scored a hat trick for Juventus in the Champions League.

On who will play in attack, Allegri told Juve's official website: "Up front it'll probably be two from (Paulo) Dybala, (Mario) Mandzukic and Ronaldo, or it could be all three, depending on what I see from them in training today".

He met Leonardo Bonnucci's deep diagonal ball with a first-time volley.

However, Von Ballmoos was punished for a similar mistake in the 33rd when he pushed away Blaise Matuidi's fierce shot and Dybala was on hand to tuck the rebound into the bottom left corner.


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 ideal start to the season with nine wins from nine games in all competitions.

Real Madrid and Costa Rica Goalkeeper, Keylor Navas, has admitted that the Spanish miss Cristiano Ronaldo and his goals and influence.

CSKA got off to a brisk start and opened the scoring after two minutes when Croatian winger Nikola Vlasic, on loan from English Premier League Everton, latched on to Toni Kroos' poor backpass and slotted home.

The Russian outfit beat the reigning champions 1-0 despite Los Blancos having won the competition for the previous three seasons. The trio of Mariano Diaz, Casemiro and Karim Benzema hit the bar, while Marco Asensio, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane came close.
