On the night that Cristiano Ronaldo began his 18th consecutive Champions League campaign, it was Álvaro Morata who did the bulk of the scoring for Juventus.

Morata netted the first two goals in a 4-1 win at Ferencvaros.”I’ve got the motivation that every player needs,” said Morata, who rejoined Juventus in September on loan from Atletico Madrid. “I feel wanted and desired and I’ve got everything I need here.”

Ronaldo, who missed Juventus’ opening two Champions League games after being tested positive for coronavirus, set up Morata’s second.

Substitute Paulo Dybala got Juventus’ third into an empty net after Ferencvaros goalkeeper Dénes Dibusz missed a back-pass. Lasha Dvali then scored an own goal following another error by Dibusz.

Franck Boli scored for Ferencvaros in the 90th minute.

“We were too complacent in the first half and slowed the tempo too much,” Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini said. “We did better when pushing after the break and raised the tempo to create chances.

Celebrating his 100th game with Juventus in all competitions, Morata was just as efficient on the hour mark when he took a cross from Ronaldo and connected with a shot from the edge of the area.
