Dybala Overtakes Maradona in PK Stat, Leads Serie A

Paulo Dybala carried his team to victory in the recent fixture against Torino, scoring a hat-trick in a gritty 3-2 result. He hadn’t netted three goals in the same match in 2151 days. He did it four times with Juventus.

La Joya surpassed Diego Armando Maradona and now possesses the best PK conversion rate in Serie A history. He has buried 13 out of 13 with Roma and 29 out of 32 in general, raising his clip to 90.6 percent. El Pipe de Oro had 4 errors out of 34 attempts (88.2 percent), TuttoSport informs.

Dybala has been healthy since Daniele De Rossi has taken over, featuring in seven out of eight matches. He was an unused sub only versus Frosinone, where they didn’t need him given the result. He got the nod versus Torino despite a short turnaround and logging 102 minutes versus Feyenoord a few days earlier.

The data suggest he’s in great shape too. He ranked second for most kilometers run on Monday, trailing only Bryan Cristante, Tuttomercatoweb relays.

His rediscovered form is fueling concerns about the future interest from abroad. He has a €12M release clause that comes into effect at the start of every window. There have been no talks with the Dybala camp for a new contract. Roma have yet to appoint a sporting director following the departure of Tiago Pinto. Moreover, they can’t really plan for the future until they know whether they’ll play in the Champions League or not.
