No Cristiano Ronaldo, no problem for Juventus as Dybala hat-trick floors Young Boys

Argentina runs riot in his first Uefa Champions League game this season even as suspended Portuguese watches from stands

Paulo Dybala scored a hat-trick as Juventus carried their winning streak into the Uefa Champions League with a 3-0 victory over 10-man Young Boys on Tuesday to leave them top of Group H with six points from two games.

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was suspended after his contested red card during the Italian side's 2-0 win over Valencia in the first round of games.

But Dybala ran riot in his first European game this season, volleying in his first following a Leonardo Bonucci long ball after five minutes.

The Argentine doubled his account on 33 minutes when he picked up a rebound from a Blaise Matuidi shot, with Juan Cuadrado setting Dybala up for his third on 69 minutes.

The Swiss played the final quarter of an hour a man down after Guinean centre-back Mohamed Ali Camara was sent off for a second yellow card.

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