Juventus overwhelm Trabzonspor

Trabzonspor AŞ 0-2 Juventus (agg: 0-4)
Arturo Vidal and Pablo Osvaldo registered for the final hosts, with keeper Onur Kıvrak sparing the home side further punishment.

Juventus will meet Serie A rivals ACF Fiorentina – the side they beat 3-1 on aggregate in the 1990 UEFA Cup final – in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 after overwhelming Trabzonspor AŞ in Turkey.

The Turin club are a step closer to playing in this season's final at their own Juventus Stadium after goals from Arturo Vidal and Pablo Osvaldo swiftly ended any hope of a Trabzonspor fightback amid a first-half onslaught by Antonio Conte's Serie A leaders.

If Trabzonspor had a right to feel a little aggrieved after losing last week's round of 32 first leg 2-0 in Italy, they could have no complaint as Juventus moved in for the kill from the off in Turkey. Goalkeeper Onur Kıvrak guided a Mauricio Isla shot onto the post, fended off efforts from Claudio Marchisio and Paul Pogba, and did brilliantly to block Sebastian Giovinco's 14th-minute attempt – but he could not prevent Vidal smashing the loose ball into the roof of the net.

The siege was not raised, with Onur having plenty more thankless work to do before Osvaldo scored his second European goal in as many games for his new team. The on-loan forward headed into an under-guarded net from close range after Giovinco's ball in from the touch line had the Trabzonspor defence chasing shadows once more. A huge crowd had gathered to urge Hami Mandıralı's men on, yet it was a hopeless task; by half-time Trabzonspor had no shots on target – Juventus had eight, plus two goals disallowed.

While Trabzonspor were better in the second period, Juve still fashioned the more meaningful openings. Aykut Demir intervened to deny Giovinco, before Onur saved from the same player. The keeper allowed Simone Padoin's strike to squirm through his legs but recovered to push the ball round the post, earning further kudos as he got a firm hand to a Giovinco free-kick.
