Dybala revels in hat-trick success

Serie A

Paulo Dybala was delighted as he scored a hat-trick during Juventus' 3-1 success at Sassuolo on Sunday.

The Argentine striker has now netted eight goals in his four Serie A appearances to date this season and his latest treble was particularly satisfactory as it came in his 100th appearance for the Old Lady.

The 23-year-old was certainly pleased with his three goals at the Mapei Stadium and he believes they will give him renewed confidence for the rest of the season.

“I am very happy. I wanted to score one and three came along,” Dybala commented. “The team continues to win and reach high levels.

“I hope to continue like that with the number 10 shirt. The team gives me confidence and I also compliment the Coach, who gives me the freedom to play where I want.”

Juventus have won all four of their league matches to date this term and Dybala knows how important it is for the team to maintain that winning record if they are to claim a seventh straight Scudetto come the end of the campaign.

He added: “We need to keep winning in order to get the best out of the team and move forward.”
