Paulo Dybala (SS) – Isn’t it remarkable that this guy is 28 years old? He’s older than Aleksandar Mitrović, for god’s sake! However, with age comes maturity and we’ve seen Dybala evolve into a leader of this Bianconeri pack. His on-field displays speak for themself. La Joya’s been the standout performer for the Old Lady this term, registering a team-high six goal contributions in Serie A. Allegri has handed the free-spirited creator complete freedom in his rather robotic 4-4-2, and it so often appears that Dybala is operating in an alternate dimension to his inhibited teammates. On the one occasion where we saw total cohesion in the Bianconeri ranks, Zenit were overwhelmed with La Joya the star of the show.
Alvaro Morata (ST) – Morata is under huge pressure despite ending his barren run before the break. He returned to incompetence in Juve’s last outing against Fiorentina, but his crucial late winner for Spain against Sweden to send La Roja to Qatar 2022 will do the frail forward a world of good. Moise Kean and Kaio Jorge are breathing down Morata’s neck, but Allegri should stick with the selfless Spaniard for the time being. He must put together a productive run to get the Juventus supporters back onside (oh, the irony).
