Dusan Vlahovic Praises Juventus Team Effort Against Lecce

Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic has started to look like a striker who used to tear Serie A defenses apart during his career at Fiorentina. The 23-year-old’s second consecutive league brace inspired Bianconeri to a ruthless 3-0 victory at Lecce on Sunday night. 

Vlahovic opened the scoring with a superb volley just before the hour mark before making it 2-0 with a poacher’s finish midway through the second half. Gleison Bremer’s towering header put the icing on the cake as Juventus left Inter in their wake, moving a point clear at the top.

Speaking to the press in the aftermath, the Serbia international praised the team effort and admitted Juventus are not thinking about Inter yet.

I am happy, especially as I got to help the team. I could not have scored those goals without the team, we hope to continue like this,” the Juventus talisman told DAZN, as quoted by TWM.

I am always calm, it’s just that perhaps my emotions look a bit more obvious on the pitch. We managed to win in a tough stadium against a team that had not lost here in four games.

It is an important victory for us and above all we managed to keep a clean sheet too.”

Though the heavily anticipated Derby d’Italia is just around the corner, Vlahovic is adamant Juventus only care about beating Empoli in their next Serie A assignment.

We are not thinking about that. We take it one game at a time, the next is Empoli and then we’ll think about Inter.
