Re-Energized Vlahovic Comes Through Under Pressure

Dusan Vlahovic solved the Derby della Mole with his sixth domestic goal of the season. He’s now atop the capocannoniere chart along with Ciro Immobile and Marko Arnautovic. He’ll have the opportunity to pull away from to his main foe, as the Lazio star suffered a thigh injury in the Udinese game.

As per Corriere dello Sport, the production of the Serb has been the key to success for the Bianconeri. He has hit the net seven times in the season. They haven’t prevailed just once when he did it, back in late August versus Roma.

According to TuttoSport, while Vlahovic has rarely had trouble finding the target since he broke out at Fiorentina, Massimiliano Allegri and his staff have been focusing on rounding out his game. In particular, they have been trying to fine-tune his first touch, passing skills, and cuts. In addition, the gaffer is stressing the mental element. The marksman often looks frustrated and nervous when he doesn’t have chances.

That wasn’t the case against Torino, as he was engaged and combative even during the offensive lulls of the Old Lady. His work ethic is unimpeachable, he’s proud and humble off the pitch and ultimately easy to work with. In addition, he’s eager to improve to reach the world’s elite in his role.

Our Take on Vlahovic

There’s no doubt about the talent of the 22-year-old, who is mostly held back by the often-lackadaisical style of his team. But he’s not yet a charismatic leader yet, and Juventus would only benefit if he quickly became one given their current state. The recipe is quite easy, as he just needs to get balls in good spots to do damage.
