Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain grabbed a treble for a 3-1 win over Dynamo Moscow.

Kevin Kuranyi headed Dynamo Moscow into a surprise second-minute lead in Naples before the home team equalised when Higuain nodded in a centre from Faouzi Ghoulam.

The Napoli number nine then made it 2-1 from the penalty spot in the 31st minute after Dries Mertens was brought down.

Dynamo had Roman Zobnin sent off one minute into the second half before Higuain completed his treble with a sublime volley, his sixth goal in Europe this season.

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez is aiming to win the Europa League for the second time in three seasons, having guided Chelsea to a 2-1 final victory over Benfica in Amsterdam in 2013
