Edinson Cavani scored four in a devastating display of finishing as SSC Napoli recovered from 2-1 down to defeat FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and dash the Ukrainian side's hopes of securing early qualification in Group F.

With the hosts staring down the barrel at their first continental home loss in 16 games, Napoli were thrown a lifeline when the Uruguay striker delightfully curled in a free-kick after 77 minutes. The 25-year-old added two more in the closing stages, lifting Napoli up to second in the section and to within three points of tonight's opponents.
