Paulo Dybala: Roma star nets beauty vs Empoli

Paulo Dybala in action for Roma

Paulo Dybala continued his great start to life at AS Roma with a beauty against Empoli on Monday evening.

The Argentine made the move to Roma this summer after his contract expired with Juventus.

He has started every game for his new club so far this season and he was in the starting lineup once again for his side’s trip to Florence.

And the 28-year-old opened the scoring in some style in the 17th minute at Carlo Castellani Stadium.

Empoli managed to repel a cross but their clearance fell straight to Dybala roughly 25 yards out.

The Argentine took a beautiful touch and proceeded to curl a majestic effort into the top corner.

Guglielmo Vicario in the Empoli goal had absolutely no chance.

It was a beautiful goal and you can watch it below…

Pick that one out. What a start to life at Roma for the Argentine magician.

That was Dybala’s third goal of the season, following his brace against Monza in August.

Roma would have wanked to push on and take the game away from Empoli after taking the lead.

However, they were pegged back in the 43rd minute as Filippo Bandinelli restored parity.

Peter Stojanovic whipped a hopeful ball into the box and Bandinelli’s header found the bottom corner.

MATERAZZI: Dybala signing is deal of the summer

Dybala has impressed in his short time with Roma and Marco Materazzi believes his signing was the best a Serie A club made this summer.

“For me Roma made the best moves in this window,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport, per Romapress. “And it’s not a surprise: it’s hard to say ‘no’ to Mourinho.

“Tiago Pinto did more than enough this summer: Dybala, Wijnaldum, Matic, Camara and Belotti… Roma managed to shorten the distance between themselves and the league’s top teams. And with Jose everything’s possible, you never know…”

“In my opinion… Dybala is the deal of the summer because of his overall worth and the way Roma and Mourinho can prove to be a decisive moment in his career.

“Paulo just needed to feel at the center of a club’s project,”
