    Juve’s man of the hour toasts his burgeoning partnership with Paulo Dybala and already has his eyes on challenges ahead

    If there is one man who seems ready-made for the big stage, it’s Juve’s young Spaniard Alvaro Morata whose 41st minute header in tonight’s 2-0 Champions League win over Sevilla was the striker’s fifth in as many appearances in the competition.

    Speaking to Mediaset in the aftermath of the Bianconeri’s comfortable homecoming victory at Juventus Stadium, Morata was pleased to get on the scoresheet but more importantly to have helped his side to a valuable triumph that puts last season’s runners-up three points clear at the top of Group D.

    He began: “I’m delighted to have scored but even more so because of our performance and the result. We created a few great opportunities tonight but there’s still work to be done. We need to get our heads down, keep pushing hard and eventually we’ll start getting into those kinds of scoring positions more often in the coming weeks.”

    While Wednesday’s goalscorer may well be the one who claims the headlines, the 22-year old was quick to pay homage to his strike partner for the evening, Paulo Dybala, and the pair’s burgeoning chemistry on and off the field.

    Alvaro concluded: “Paulo and I haven’t played together for long but we have a fantastic understanding already, we’re getting to know each other well off the field too and he’s a guy I really enjoy working with.”

    Music to the ears of Bianconeri fans everywhere.
