    Paulo Dybala’s last-gasp penalty seals three precious points at the end of a rip-roaring contest against the Rossoneri

    Some games can define a season, some can produce a year’s worth of emotion within 90 minutes, some of such importance that they are looked back upon months later as a turning point in the campaign.

    Juventus’ dramatic 2-1 victory over Milan on 10 March 2017 can lay claim to doing all of the above. 

    Medhi Benatia’s thumping strike at the end of a flowing team move set Juve on course for a 31st consecutive home victory on the half-hour mark.

    However on the stroke of the interval, Carlos Bacca found the net to restore parity - a situation that would last right up until the final second.

    An array of saves from Milan keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma kept the scores level until the very last play, but the Bianconeri, held to a 1-1 draw the previous Sunday away to Udinese, were not to be denied victory for a second week in a row.

    With the game lurching towards a stalemate, a heart-stopping finale had Juventus Stadium bouncing like never before during the 2016/17 season.

    A final sprawling save from Donnarumma off Gonzalo Higuain looked to have ensured a share of the spoils only for the ball to bounce off a Milan hand in the last minute of added time.

    Up stepped Paulo Dybala. One deep breath from the Argentine was followed up with the crispest of drives just centimetres inside Donnarumma’s right-hand post: the final kick of the match and one of the most memorable moments of Juve’s entire campaign. 

    What a night to be black and white.

    WHAT THEY SAID

    “The net can seem small when you’re under pressure and I was also up against a great keeper. I struck the ball well and I’m pleased with this goal.”

    Paulo Dybala

    “That’s one more win chalked off on our run towards the league title. These three points come at the end of a terrific game of football against a top side in Milan.”

    Massimiliano Allegri

    “We’re approaching the home straight of our season and this is a crucial period for us, the fans and the management.”
