Juventus 2-0 Inter Milan: Paulo Dybala humiliated Ashley Young twice before scoring

Juventus took a huge step to retaining their Serie A crown once again last night.

The Bianconeri welcomed title-chasing Inter Milan to Turin in a game played behind-closed-doors due to the coronavirus outbreak in Italy.

While the game was bereft of atmosphere, Juve still turned up and put on an absolute clinic to earn a priceless 2-0 victory over Antonio Conte’s side.

Former Arsenal man Aaron Ramsey silenced his critics by opening the scoring and the Welshman was on hand to claim the assist for Paulo Dybala’s strike for the second.

But the goal was all about Dybala. The silky Argentine displayed some sensational footwork on two separate occasions, humiliating Inter’s January signing Ashley Young both times.

The first incident saw Dybala pluck a 60-yard pass out the sky and drag it back across Young, leaving the Englishman jogging aimlessly in the opposite direction to the ball.

Dybala then exchanged passes with Ramsey, before bursting into the area and turning Young inside-out with a perfectly-executed chop.

The cherry on the top of the cake was the outside-of-the-boot finish from the Argentine, beautiful stuff.


La Joya, that is magnificent!

Dybala hasn’t been at the peak of his powers on a consistent basis under Maurizio Sarri this season, but he is capable of delivering the extraordinary.

His goal against Inter was reminiscent of both Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona, but he will need to up his scoring rate if he is to ever be mentioned alongside Argentina’s two greatest ever players.

In 24 Serie A games this season, Dybala has notched just seven goals, which is quite a poor return given his outrageous natural talent.

His best scoring season for Juve came in 2017/18, where the 26-year-old scored 22 times in 33 league appearances.

He needs to be repeating and exceeding those numbers every season, but it just has not happened.

Dybala isn’t even a shoe-in to start for Argentina at this summer’s Copa America, which tells you everything you need to know.
