Dusan Vlahovic Enters Serie A History Books with Bologna Redemption

Juventus rose from the dead to steal a point off Bologna at the Allianz Stadium after Dusan Vlahovic’s late header cancelled out Marko Arnautovic’s 52nd minute opener. With the equalizer, the Serbian marksman has marked himself in Serie A’s history books as the second youngest foreign player to reach the milestone of 50 goals.

Vlahovic scored 44 league goals at Fiorentina, before jumping ship to Turin in the January winter transfer window. He has scored 6 in Serie A for the Bianconeri in 10 games so far.

He takes his place among several other superstar foreign players who have graced the fields of Serie A, with four Argentine forwards in the top ten, followed by two from Brazil and one from Uruguay, Sweden, Denmark and Serbia each.

The youngest foreign goal scorer to reach the 50 mark is Alexandre Pato, who registered his name at only 21 years and 220 days with his exploits at Milan from 2007 to 2013.
