Paulo Dybala wrote a new page in his early love affair with the Olimpico by signing his first two goals for La Louve against Monza (3-0) on Tuesday. The Argentinian has reached the 100 goals mark in Serie A, almost ten years after his first goals – already a double – with Palermo.
On Saturday, he offered Tammy Abraham the equalizing goal against Juventus (1-1). The English returned the courtesy by being decisive on Dybala’s two goals against Monza: he first launched the former Turinese with a deflection of the head (18th) then armed a shot which returned in the feet of the “Joya” (32nd).
Roma then managed and knocked out the promoted on a header from Roger Ibanez (61st). Here is José Mourinho temporarily alone in the lead (10 pts), with a team reinforced by Andrea Belotti, entered for the last ten minutes, and the Guinean Mady Camara, who arrived on Tuesday to compensate for the absence for several months of Georginio Wijnaldum (broken tibia) .
Inter bounce back
Beaten by Lazio (3-1) on Friday and deprived for perhaps a few weeks of Romelu Lukaku, who injured his thigh on Sunday, Inter needed to cheer themselves up. Joaquin Correa, at the conclusion of an express counter initiated by Nicolo Barella (12th), and Barella himself, with a perfect volley (38th), reassured San Siro before the break. Lautaro Martinez, entered in the second half, participated in the celebration (76th) against a combative promoted, justly rewarded for his efforts by the reduction of the score of David Okereke (90th).
The Nerazzurri (9 pts) come back ahead of the Rossoneri (8 pts) before the highly anticipated Milan derby on Saturday. For the Cremonese, as for Monza, the beginnings in the elite are very difficult with zero points after four games.
