Cristiano Ronaldo has his jewel Dybala


In their first two matches back in June, Juventus registered two 0-0 draws in the semi-final and final of the Coppa Italia against AC Milan and Napoli respectively, losing the latter on penalties.

Since then, Maurizio Sarri’s side have rediscovered their scoring touch, winning their first three games back in Serie A.

The Bianconeri have scored a total of nine goals on those three games against Bologna, Lecce and Genoa, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala scoring in each of them.

Between them, they’ve scored six goals in Juve’s last three games, and Ronaldo is chasing after Ciro Immobile in the scoring charts.

The Lazio striker tops this season’s standings in Serie A with 29 goals, while the former Real Madrid forward is on 24.


The partnership between Ronaldo and Dybala has been a crucial part of Juventus’ recent form.

“Dybala is a phenomenal player and is amazing, although it’s difficult tactically to play him alongside Cristiano Ronaldo,” Sarri had said before.

Now, the Italian coach’s comments have a different tone.

“Cristiano and Dybala have learned to combine a lot more,” Sarri said after the win over Genoa.

“That’s something positive for both of them.”

Dybala has now scored 10 goals in Serie A this campaign – twice as many as he did in the 2018/19 season.
