Dybala Eager to Make Up for the Time Lost Due to Injury

Paulo Dybala returned from a knee sprain in the Lecce game and played the whole match since Roma were trailing up until a furious late fightback. He didn’t look too explosive but made a few classy plays and provided an assist. The plan was for him to sit out the upcoming Slavia Prague match, but he wants to be present midweek, Il Messaggero informs.

La Joya believes it could be more beneficial to put minutes in his legs ahead of Sunday’s Derby against Lazio. He hasn’t won one in his lone season with the Giallorossi. He missed the first one and played just 45 minutes since he got hurt in the return leg, and his team lost on both occasions.

Instead, Dybala had plenty of success against the Biancocelesti in his previous stops. He has scored seven goals versus them in league play, two with Palermo and five with Juventus. He hit the net four more times in the three Supercoppa finals while donning the Bianconeri colors.

José Mourinho stated that the Argentine gutted through the injury to help the team, adding that he couldn’t take the PK or set pieces because he was in pain while kicking from a standstill. Romelu Lukaku stepped up to the plate in the first half Sunday but missed his first attempt from the spot in Serie A.

Dybala came back after missing about a month due to an MCL sprain in his left knee.
