Di Vaio double puts Juventus through

Juventus FC 2-0 Feyenoord Two goals from Marco Di Vaio guarantee Juventus' progress.

Two goals from Marco Di Vaio handed Juventus FC victory against UEFA Champions League Group E opponents Feyenoord and assured the Italian side of progress to the competition's second stage.

Perfect start
Just four minutes into a bustling first half at the Delle Alpi stadium, Di Vaio opened his account for the evening when Mauro Camoranesi beat the visitors' offside trap on the right flank and delivered a delightful chipped cross, which the 26-year-old striker rose to head powerfully downwards past Edwin Zoetebier in the Feyenoord goal.

Deadly Di Vaio
Di Vaio's second came midway through a more pedestrian second half when Pavel Nedved, who drifted in and out of the game all evening, fed the excellent Camoranesi inside the area and his ball inside was turned in by Di Vaio just three metres from goal, but by that stage Feyenoord had looked a beaten side, seemingly short of ideas in the final third of the field.

Lurling goes close
But just three minutes after Di Vaio's opener, Anthony Lurling, one of four additions to the Feyenoord side that lost to FC Dynamo Kyiv last week, had a great chance to level the scores. The striker almost added to his tally but watched Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon make a fine save from his angled shot.

Carbon copy
The early pace continued at the other end when Lilian Thuram, the French international defender, burst down the left just as Camoranesi had done and flicked in an identical cross which Alessandro Del Piero, who faded as the game progressed, controlled on his chest but fired over the crossbar with an audacious overhead effort.

Brilliant Buffon
A further 20 minutes of a half sullied by four yellow cards had passed before Lurling beat the Juventus offside trap and squared the ball for Mariano Bombarda, unmarked eight metres out, but the South American somehow missed the ball completely with the goal at his mercy. As if enraged by his team-mate's blunder, Lurling took matters into his own hands a minute later, turning Thuram twice before curling a delicious strike towards the far corner, only for Buffon to make a flamboyant diving stop.

Nedved sparkles
Juventus had a great chance to double their lead on 33 minutes when Nedved sparked to life and laid on a defence-splitting pass for Di Vaio, but the striker attempted a chip, which dropped just wide of the far post, rather than a more straightforward strike on goal.

Missed chances
Just before half-time, Di Vaio and Del Piero forced saves from Zoetebier, who was replaced by Patrick Lodewijks after the break and Edgar Davids, who worked tirelessly in midfield, dragged a shot wide of target from the inside-left channel.

Visitors rally
Feyenoord rallied after the break, Patrick Paauwe drawing a spectacular save from Buffon with a 51st-minute free-kick before Thomas Buffel lashed wide of an unguarded net from an acute angle and Emerton skewered his shot over the angle of crossbar and post.

Buffon unbeatable
But Di Vaio's 69th-minute goal took the wind from Feyenoord's sails and although Emerton twice broke through a stubborn Juventus defence, he simply could not beat Buffon.
