Paulo Dybala: Fan footage of his best Juventus free-kick is perfection
The Argentine superstar opted to not extend his contract in Turin and instead joined AS Roma on a free transfer.
Dybala’s acquisition has some tipping Jose Mourinho‘s side as a dark horse for the Serie A title in 2022/23.
If the former Palermo forward can avoid the injury issues he’s been plagued with in recent years, there’s no reason why Roma can’t challenge for Italian football’s biggest prize.
When he was fit at Juventus, Dybala was the definition of ‘electric’, a forward who scared the living daylights out of opposition defences.
Arguably his best season with the Bianconeri was 2019/20, where he forged a deadly on-pitch relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Dybala finished the campaign with 17 goals and 14 assists from 46 appearances across all competitions, his magical performances seeing him named Serie A’s Most Valuable Player.
And during the 2019/20 season, Dybala scored arguably his greatest goal in Juventus colours.
In a Champions League group stage outing against Atletico Madrid, the fleet-footed forward somehow managed to beat Jan Oblak from a seemingly impossible angle.
The ball was only a few yards away from the touchline, but that didn’t bother Dybala one bit.
He produced a shot packed full of venom that flew over the heads of the two-man wall, crashed off the underside of the crossbar and into the back of Oblak’s net.
It’s without question one of the best free-kicks scored in the Champions League and a fan in attendance managed to capture footage of the incredible goal from the stands.
As ‘fan footage’ videos go, it’s right up there with the finest…

Don’t mind us, we will just be hitting the replay button for the next hour or so…
Some will question whether Oblak should have saved the effort, but when the ball is struck that powerfully and accurately, getting a hand to it is the polar opposite of easy.
The Slovenian ‘keeper also probably wasn’t expecting Dybala to take a shot at goal from such an acute angle.
Dybala finished the 2019/20 Champions League campaign with three goals to his name, with Juventus crashing out of the competition in the last-16 after being beaten on away goals by Lyon.
At least they won the Serie A title that season…
