Paulo Dybala leads Juventus to a win with a spectacular free kick vs Atletico Madrid in their Champions league encounter at the Allianz stadium.
With 3 wins and a draw in their last 4 Champions League matches, Juventus have already secured in the knockout stage of the Champions league. However, with Juventus and Bayer breathing down their neck, a win will allow them to end the group stage as winners.
The first half between the two was fairly tame considering the quality of the teams on the field. However, Juventus star Paulo Dybala helped inject a sense of excitement in the match just before the close of play in the first half.
Paulo Dybala leads Juventus to a win with a spectacular free kick vs Atletico Madrid
2 minutes were added into the match at the end of the allotted 45 minutes. A Hermosa foul just outside the box on Juventus’ Bentancur gave Juventus a free kick. The spotkick was interestingly taken by Dybala instead of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Dybala repaid the trust placed in him by engineering and excellent shot at a tight angle with just enough power to beat Jan Oblak. While Oblak will feel that he could have done better, most would forgive him considering the beauty the beauty that Dybala had just produced, was incredibly hard to beat.

The match failed to live to the expectations. Two of Europe’s most exciting sides put on display such a low-quality match. Juventus only had 6 shots in the match while Atletico Madrid registered 15. Although, both sides only mustered 2 shots on target each. Juventus were lucky that one of them was an outrageous free kick.
With neither team adding to the scoreboard in the 2nd half, Juventus won the match 1-0. With this win, they have now assured themselves a top place finish in the group while the next Champions league encounters will decide which one of Bayer or Atletico Madrid will play in the Champions League and who will drop down to the Europa.
