As we've come to see in recent weeks, Paulo Dybala has settled in quite nicely into the Juventus starting lineup. His partnership with Mario Mandzukic is growing as the games go by, confirming that a tall-and-small striker pairing can work wonders when it starts to hit its stride.
That was on display once again to open Juventus' match against Lazio on Friday night.
Dybala's strike from 25 yards out put Juventus up 2-0 over their Roman rivals midway through the first half. And what a lovely hit it was. Thanks to some nice build-up play and pass from Mandzukic, Dybala took a shot on the volley with his left foot and rocketed it past Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti. It was, for all intents and purposes, an incredibly wonderful goal from an incredibly wonderful player.
So, yeah. That potential €40 million price tag that Juventus could be sending Palermo's way ... whatever. Money well spent no matter what the final figure may be. And this goal is just one that reaffirms Beppe Marotta's big-money risk was well, well worth the even bigger reward.
