There is no better player in Serie A right now than Paulo Dybala and on Saturday afternoon the 23-year-old scored twice to help Juventus to a 4-0 victory over Torino in the Derby della Mole and take his personal tally to an impressive ten in six matches.
In the best form of his career to date, it took 16 minutes for Dybala to open his account against Torino, Juve’s number ten drilling the ball past Salvatore Sirigu from the edge of the penalty area after Miralem Pjanic had pinched back possession.
Torino made life far more difficult for themselves when Daniele Baselli was sent off and before the break, Pjanic doubled the lead with a superb strike.
Alex Sandro headed Juve further in front just before the hour mark and although Sirigu managed to keep the score line from getting embarrassing for Torino, Dybala added his tenth goal of the campaign in stoppage time.
A wonderful passage of play culminating in the Argentina international dinking the ball over Sirigu.
The victory makes it a perfect six wins from six for Juve as they remain level with Napoli at the top of Serie A ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Olympiakos.
The big question now is whether Jorge Sampaoli can get anywhere near this level of performance from Dybala for Argentina. If, and it remains a big if at present, La Albiceleste can unleash the Juventus forward in tandem with Lionel Messi, it will be one of the most formidable attacks in world football.
