Paulo Dybala once again proved that he is the point of difference for Juventus as the Argentine scored a spectacular free-kick to give ‘The Old Lady’ a narrow win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. This win takes the Italian side into the last 16 of the tournament as well as confirms them as group winners. Dybala struck two minutes into the first-half injury time. His left-footed strike from a seemingly impossible angle left Slovenian Jan Oblak helpless in the Atletico net. This strike from Dybala was enough for Juventus to get a crucial win. Twitter went into a frenzy after this Paulo Dybala goal and were left in awe of the Argentine's genius.

Manager Maurizio Sarri lauded Dybala for his performance against Atletico and called the Juventus forward a ‘World Class’ player and the ‘Difference Maker’. Netizens hailed the Argentine striker for his spectacular goal and also demanded that he should be Juventus’ main free-kick taker ahead of star man Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese forward has taken ten free-kicks this season but was unable to find the net on any occasion, while Dybala has scored one in his second attempt. The Argentina striker has also scored more goals in the Champions League for Juventus than Ronaldo since the former Real Madrid man joined in 2018.
