Paulo Dybala makes history as he becomes Juventus fourth player to score a Champions League hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Young Boys at Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night. Stadium.

The 24-year-old forward bagged his first treble of the tournament to follows in the footsteps of some Bianconerri legends of Pippo Inzaghi, Alex Del Piero and Arturo Vidal.

Dybala broke the deadlock after volleying in Leonardo Bonucci's long pass, the forward tapped in his second after goalkeeper David von Ballmoos failed to deal with Blaise Matuidi's low drive

Argentina international gets his third of the tie in the 69th minute courtesy of Juan Cuadrado's square pass, with the La Joya taking centre stage in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Filippo Inzaghi becomes the first player to achieve this feat twice during his time with Juventus when Serie A Champions won the quarter-final 4-1 away to Dinamo Kiev in March 1998 and again in a 4-4 group phase thriller with Hamburger SV in September 2000.

Alessandro Del Piero got the hat-trick as Old Lady beat AS Monaco 4-1 in the semi-final in April 1998 before Arturo Vidal is the rather unexpected last player to manage a treble in the 3-1 group phase victory over FC Copenhagen in November 2013.

Next up for Juventus is a double-header against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, with a trip to Old Trafford first on October 23.
