Dybala Joins Serie A Cream with Goal Against Sampdoria

Paulo Dybala chiseled his mark amongst the Serie A cream of the crop after netting his 10thSerie A goal of the season with a penalty in the 3-0 win against Sampdoria at the Stadio Olimpico. Dybala’s landmark strike places him alongside three other icons of the Italian top flight, as this is his 7thSerie A season in which he has scored at least ten goals and delivered at least five assists.

Since the 2004/05 campaign, only three other players have recorded seven seasons with 10+ goals and 5+ assists – Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Antonio Di Natale, and Francesco Totti. Dybala has reached the double-digit threshold in Serie A in seven of his previous eight campaigns. Instead, he missed out just in 2020/2021, where he was largely sidelined by injuries.

His most prolific season came in 2017/18, when he registered 26 goals in 46 appearances for the Bianconeri, with 22 of them coming in Serie A. The Argentine playmaker has functioned as an integral part of José Mourinho’s team, racking up 14 goals and 8 assists in 30 appearances for the Giallorossi since joining on a Bosman transfer from Juventus.
