The new MESSI:

Prior to the match, Palermo president Maurizio ZAPARINI (who brought DYBALA in to the club from Argentina) had this to say about the Argentine jewel:

“We are talking about the new MESSI. He will become a player like Messi and he is already at that level. Ok, he does not score as much as last season, but he is always man of the match for Juventus whenever I see him play. He is the type of attacker who plays for the team and puts others in the position to score.”

“I would say he is worth €140 or €150 million. Like I said, he is the new Messi. I have been saying that he is destined to become a star ever since he arrived at Palermo. I hope he will stay at Juventus. I think they can hold on to him. But of course there will be approaches. World-class players are always coveted by everyone. But I hope he will stay at Juventus for a long time.”

DYBALA provided the assist on HIGUAIN’s goal when the number 9 chipped the ball over the goalkeeper. On DYBALA’s second goal, HIGUAIN provided a back-heel assist for the goal. Just another day at the office for both Paulo DYBALA and Gonzalo HIGUAIN.

Match highlights:


  1. Higuain got two easy opprtunities where he had only the goal keeper in front of him! He spoiled one, converted the other. He cannot always expect to get two three chances and score one. While acknowledging him as a good striker, this must also be seen!

    • Maybe you need to understand that Argentina need to create more chances like Juventus for Higuain and others attackers. Maybe if Argentina created more clear cut chances for him or other players as per strategy,we wouldn’t be talking about Higuain misses. A confident team will always probe the opponents defence for an opening with all attackers. Just accept that we had a coach who had no clue about how use his personnel to their maximum potential like his replacement nor tactical acumen to open up park the bus defenses.

      • Yes we have a poor midfield, but that is not a justification for missing easy opportunities! The logical extension of your argument will be to justify each and every drawbacks by pointing out other draw backs! Accordingly you can justify a stagnant and unproductive midfield by saying that it is not the lack of creating chances but d failure to capitalize those chances that is d problem! In league matches, missing chances doesnt matter much, but in tournaments, it does!
