Europa League: Di Maria Nets Hat-Trick As Juve See Off Nantes

Angel di Maria scored a hat-trick as Juventus reached the last 16 of the Europa League with a 3-0 second leg win over Nantes.

The result allowed the Italian giants to progress 4-1 on aggregate.

After a 1-1 first-leg draw in Italy last week, Argentine World Cup winner Di Maria opened the scoring after five minutes and then added a 20th-minute when Nantes defender Nicolas Pallois was sent off for a handball.

Di Maria completed his hat-trick in the 78th minute with a header.

Juventus dropped into the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League group and will find out their next opponents in Friday’s draw in Nyon, Switzerland.
