He had scored two goals in a single Serie A match seven times, five of those playing for Juventus (the other two as a Palermo player), but he had never scored a hat-trick. Until yesterday.
Paulo Dybala’s… ruthlessness helped Juventus bounce back after going 2-0 at Genoa after just seven minutes(!).
Before the first half was over, the score was 2-2, with the Argentina international having already scored twice. A Juan Cuadrado goal in the 62th minute gave Juventus the lead, with Dybala putting the cherry on top in added time, to celebrate his first Serie A hat-trick.
Personally, I am very happy with what I am doing this season. I knew wearing the number 10 for Juventus would be a tough challenge, but so far it is bringing me luck
the 23-year-old Argentine told Mediaset Premium. As for Genoa’s challenge, he remembered last season’s 3-1 defeat, which the Juve players hadn’t forgotten.
We had talked about last season’s defeat, but this time managed to fight back and recover from the rough start. I am very happy as we knew this was a difficult game. We started a little sluggish and conceded straight away, but did well to turn it around
