Dybala bounced back from a weak Champions League performance in Dybala fashion - by scoring goals. Dybala had a hat-trick by the 62nd minute.
The first was a glorious one-timer from outside the box that Mandzukic sent to him, the keeper had no chance. The second was a ball through a group of defenders that had no business going through, but of course Dybala threaded the needle and left the keeper with no chance. The third was a perfect free-kick which again, the keeper had no chance. And he drew the foul that led to the free-kick. Go ahead and give him your upovte, I have a feeling he’ll get pretty close to 100%.
Sassuolo did score. It was a weird play that the defenders couldn’t completely contain before Politano buried it from just across the line.
Barzagli came on for Cuadrado in the 72nd minute. Douglas Costa replaced Gonzalo Higuain a few minutes later.
