Juventus 4-2 Zenit St Petersburg: Juve progress with comfortable win over Zenit

Last update on. From the section Champions League
Paulo Dybala also scored in the first period.

With a stunning display, Juventus defeated Zenit St Petersburg to confirm their qualification for the knockout stage in the Champions League.

Paulo Dybala, an Argentine forward, scored two goals and received an assist in Turin.

Juve was able to take a lead in the first half thanks to his excellent half-volley. However, Leonardo Bonucci, the defender, scored from his own goal.

Dybala scored a 2-1 goal from the spot after Federico Chiesa was subbed. The Italian winger then added another, before Alvaro Mrata got a fourth.

In stoppage time, Zenit forward Sardar Azmoun scored an injury-time goal to help mitigate the damage. However, Juve's offensive quality was too strong in Italy.

Both Dybala and Chiesa played brilliantly throughout, and the Argentine could easily have scored a hat trick before he was replaced to a standing ovation at the end of the second period.

Although he was lucky to have his first penalty missed due to encroachment, he was still nerveless when he inserted it in the bottom-right corner.

Morata had another goal disallowed in the first period for offside, but he was rewarded with Dybala's fourth goal.

They move up from Group H with four wins out of four and Zenit is third with three points.
