Morata brace helps Juventus to 4-1 win at Ferencvaros

The Serie side were too slick for their spirited opponents, who are back in the group stage after a 25-year absence, and cantered home at the Puskas Arena to go second in Group H with six points from three games. Ferencvaros have one point. "Games can become easy only if you play well," said Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini. "In the first half we were a bit slow with possession, we raised our tempo in the second half, and we managed to earn another important win."



Juve got the ideal start when defender Leonardo Bonucci threaded a pass down the right touchline to set Juan Cuadrado away and the Colombia international's low cross was tapped in by Morata at the far post after seven minutes.


Despite the early setback, Ferencvaros acquitted themselves well with Tokmac Nguen and Oleksandr Zubkov both having chances but sending shots wide.


Cristiano Ronaldo was always a danger for Juve, however, and nearly added a second after combining with Morata but the ball was taken off his foot by Miha Blazic as he was about to shoot.
