It wasn’t the best week for him in Europe but Paulo DYBALA didn’t let that diminish his confidence when Juventus travelled to Benevento.
DYBALA bagged a hat-trick in Juve’s 4-2 win as the Turin side took another step closer to retaining their Serie A title once again. He opened the scoring for Juventus in the 16th minute with a powerful left footed strike pass Christian PUGONI. The home side equalized through Cheik DIABATE just eight minutes later. But Juventus regained their lead just before half time courtesy of a penalty which DYBALA scored from the spot.
The home side didn’t back down as DIABATE scored once more but that too didn’t last as DYBALA netted for a second time from the spot. Douglas COSTA scored Juve’s fourth to complete the win for the Grand Old Lady.
Moments after heading into the locker room, DYBALA dedicated his performance to his mother as a birthday gift. Here he is on his Instagram, posing together with the game ball.
Congratulations to DYBALA on his hat-trick and a happy birthday to his mother. Fully deserving weekend for him after receiving so much criticism for the sending off against Real Madrid.
Now we’ll just have to wait and see if this is good enough to convince Jorge SAMPAOLI to include him for the Russian party.
