Paulo DYBALA, Gio SIMEONE and Alejandro GOMEZ all scored in Serie A this week.
DYBALA’s ending 2017 in style. Lots has been said about the jewel’s recent form. He had not been a regular starter recently for Juventus which has sparked transfer rumors but a start on Saturday saw the old Paulo DYBALA return to form.
With the score at 1-1, Paulito scored a brace for the Old Lady in their 3-1 win against Verona. The win keeps Juventus in second place at 47 points, only one point behind Napoli who at 48, top the league. DYBALA’s first goal came from inside the area after a low cross was played in and an off balance DYBALA scores with his weaker, right foot.
The second goal was pure magic by the Argentinian. A fantastic dribbling run right through the Verona back line and another goal with his right foot put the ball past the goalkeeper.
Juventus coach Massimiliano ALLEGRI on DYBALA:
“DYBALA? It was important for him to score again and after that first goal, he seemed much more relaxed. When MESSI and RONALDO get older, it will be NEYMAR and DYBALA who will be the best players in the world. He has a whole lot of football ahead of him and I know that he can keep improving.”
Another young Argentinian striker scored as Gio SIMEONE was on the scoresheet for the sixth time this season as Fiorentina drew 1-1 against AC Milan.
Argentinian international Alejandro “Papu” GOMEZ will try to continue to impress coach Jorge SAMPAOLI to try and secure a spot at the World Cup. His performances last season got GOMEZ into the team and maybe the goal he scored for Atalanta in their 2-1 loss to Cagliari will help.
