Electric Juventus power past Dynamo

Juventus FC 5-0 FC Dynamo Kyiv Marco di Vaio strikes twice in a memorable display.

Juventus FC 5-0 FC Dynamo Kyiv
Juventus FC produced a memorable display of powerful, attacking football to demolish FC Dynamo Kyiv in their UEFA Champions League Group E encounter at the Stadio Delle Alpi.

Di Vaio double
Visitors Dynamo gambled on playing five at the back and one up front, but they were given a tough examination from the start by a Juventus team who soon went 2-0 up through strikers Marco Di Vaio and Alessandro Del Piero, the former adding his second early in the second half. Edgar Davids and the superb Pavel Nedved completed the comprehensive victory after the break.

Attacking formation
The home side, who drew 1-1 at Feyenoord last week, fielded an attacking formation with Nedved playing behind the front two and Mauro Camoranesi and Edgar Davids on the wings, and looked strong from the off. And not long after Del Piero had already gone close, his corner produced the opener, as Di Vaio rose to head a goal in the 14th minute.

Del Piero on the mark
Dynamo nearly levelled four minutes later as Gianluigi Buffon was called into action for the first time to tip Aleksandr Khatskevich's header on to the bar and out of play. Four minutes later, however, Juventus doubled their lead. The alert Nedved robbed Dynamo sweeper Tiberiu Ghioane of the ball, and fed Camoranesi, who crossed to Del Piero, the striker finishing confidently from five metres.

Close to third
Full of confidence after their dream start, Juventus continued to pour forward, although Dynamo's deep defending meant that clear chances were relatively scarce for the rest of the half. Del Piero went closest to getting a third, when his 38th-minute curling free-kick bent just wide of the far post.

Further ahead
Half-time did not blunt Juventus's ambition, and within seven minutes of the restart they were further ahead. Moments after Nedved had hit the inside of the post from an acute angle, the playmaker sent in a high cross from the left, and Di Vaio again soared in the box to head his second and the home side's third.

Home exhibition
Juventus took this lead as a cue to turn the rest of the half into an exhibition that delighted the home fans in the Delle Alpi. Davids, Nedved and Del Piero were particularly inspiring, while at the other end Dynamo could only muster a Maksim Shatskikh header on the hour mark, excellently saved by Buffon.

Moment of magic
The fourth, when it came on 67 minutes, was a true moment of magic. Lilian Thuram, turning in defence, found Nedved, who in turn sent a pass to Davids around 35 metres from the Dynamo goal. The Dutch international then set off on a jinking run which took him past the visiting defence and round Dynamo goalkeeper Vitaliy Reva, Davids then stroking the ball into the net.

Nedved completes scoring
With Dynamo a beaten side, Nedved finally got the goal his endeavour deserved, as he whipped a powerful shot past Reva from 15 metres with eleven minutes remaining. Newcastle United FC, beaten twice already in the group, will not relish facing Juventus here next Tuesday in this brilliant form.
