Five contenders for Juventus’ goal of the season

May 28, 2016 - 10:19 am

With the summer transfer market about to open and Euro 2016 approaching fast, it’s time to look back at Juventus’ amazing 2015/2016 season.

The Bianconeri scored 75 goals on their way to the Scudetto, but which goal was the best one of them all? I picked five contenders for Juve’s goal of the season!

 

Mario Mandzukic vs. Atalanta

On October 25, Juventus beat Atalanta 2-0 for only their third win of the season at that point. The Old Lady were still struggling but they showed a glimpse of what was about to come when Mario Mandzukic scored Juve’s second goal just after the break. A vertical pass by Claudio Marchisio, a touch of genius by Paul Pogba and a great cross by Paulo Dybala… Goal! A gorgeous attack by the Bianconeri.

 

Paul Pogba vs. Torino

Despite beating Atalanta, Juve suffered a 1-0 loss at Sassuolo. The Turin beast only woke up one game later. During the Derby della Mole against Torino, Pogba opened the scoring in the 19th minute of play with a stunning volley. Juan Cuadrado provided the assist, with Dybala leaving the ball for Juve’s number 10. POGBOOM!

However, Pogba’s volley was cancelled when Cesare Bovo equalised for Torino. The Juventus fans had to wait until the dying seconds of the game to witness another goal by the Bianconeri. A touch of class by Pogba, a solid decision by referee Gianluca Rocchi to not blow his whistle for a foul on Hernanes, a perfect cross by Alex Sandro and the Colombian was there to hit the game winner, which started Juve’s historical winning streak.

Simone Zaza vs. Napoli

After winning 14 Serie A games in a row, Juventus host Napoli for a battle at the top of Serie A. It wasn’t a great game to watch but the Bianconeri came away with the win and jumped to first place in the standings for good. Simone Zaza scored the game’s only goal with a huge hit from outside the box just two minutes before the final whistle.

 

Paulo Dybala vs. Sassuolo

At this point in the season, Juventus were clicking on all cylinders. Dybala had established himself as the Bianconeri’s key players and was sitting at 13 goals, among them the game winners against Milan and Roma. However, the Argentine wasn’t done and scored his best goal of the season in a 1-0 revenge win against Sassuolo. Dybala set up a two-man attack with Cuadrado and finished it with a magnificent curling shot.

    Aaagh, reports saying the deal for Alves is done and will be anounced in a matter of days… The sole hope that this isnt true is in the reported wages – 5mill for 3seasons, which would be more than Pogba currently earns.. Surely they wont pay Alves this much?!

      Then we should be expecting a pay rise for dybala and Pogba. But I don’t they will offer him that much considering the fact that he won’t stay long and he’s past his prime.

        Well Pogba and Dybala are both getting an improved contract! Pogba will climb to 6mill from 4,5mill and I read Dybala will be bumped to Pogba’s level, but I dont know if they meant to 4,5 or to 6mill then. He now gets 2,5mill.

        That is indeed what I thought too, it seems unlikely to be that much.

        Welcome to posting here by the way, I dont think we have seen you here before?

    On topic: I would go for Zaza’s goal against Napoli. Not because it was a beautiful goal, but because of the importance of it. That goal put us at the top for the first time during the season and from that point on we never slowed down.

    Imperial goal for the campaign

      I agree. Better said, the importance AND because it’s a beautiful goal, because it was. It wasn’t in the perfect top cornor, but he did some good work before the goal too.

    Probably this strike from Dybala…The build up was swift and beautiful, the execution brutal, the whole move was one of poetry from start to finish.
