Not a bad way to start off your 100th appearance for your club as DYBALA put on a five star performance!
Not to be outdone by his Argentina National Team mate Sergio AGUERO, Paulo DYBALA powered Juventus passed Sassuola with a hat trick, scoring a sensational goal in the process.
He opened the scoring in the 16th minute with a brilliant long-range effort with his ferocious left foot which also turned out to be his 50th goal for the club. The scoreline was 1-0 at halftime in favor of Juventus.
It didn’t take long for them to double their lead in the second half. DYBALA slotted the ball into the bottom corner from inside the penalty area in the 49th minute. The home side immediately hit back after a mistake from Gianlugi BUFFON which allowed Matteo POLITANO to pull one back for Sassuolo.
Then in the 63rd minute, DYBALA was brought down about 22 yards away from goal. He took the resulting free kick in which he curled the ball past Andrea CONSIGLI to complete his hat-trick.
After the match, Paulo spoke to Sky Sport and he was asked about being compared to MESSI. Here’s what he had to say:
“Every footballer has his own style. I am DYBALA and he’s MESSI. He has won five Ballon d’Or and nobody has ever done what he’s done so far.”
