      A big month sees Juve record vital wins in Serie A and Europe
      LAST-GASP WIN TAKES JUVE TOP

      March started with a big game away at Lazio, with Juve's league rivals Napoli hosting Roma later that evening. Both sides knew that results in this round of fixtures could be decisive in determining the title.

      The Bianconeri started the day second in the standings behind Napoli at the top.

      A tight tense match ended 0-0 at the break with more of the same in the second period. The game looked to be heading towards a stalemate but then right at the end in the 93rd minute of stoppage time...

      Paulo Dybala's late late goal sent the Old Lady top of the Serie A table, a point above Napoli. Juve would remain there that night after Napoli lost 2-4 at home to Roma.

      London calling

      Next up was a trip to Wembley as Juve had to overturn a 2-2 draw from their Champions League Last 16 first leg against Tottenham.

      It was a difficult first half for the Bianconeri, who went a goal down when Son Heung-Min struck just before half-time. However, Juve turned things round in three incredible second half minutes:

      Gonzalo Higuain levelled matters when he headed in Stephan Lichtsteiner's cross, following a touch on from Sami Khedira, before Pipita turned provider when he played in Dybala with an exquisite through-ball with La Joya finishing with aplomb past Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal.

      The Bianconeri dug in and it even took a goalline clearance from Andrea Barzagli to preserve their lead, as a spirited performance saw Juve conquer Wembley!

      TURNING ATTENTION BACK TO DOMESTIC MATTERS

      After Juve's Wembley heroics, the Bianconeri were back at it domestically as they hosted Udinese at the Allianz Stadium:

      Of course who else would be on the scoresheet in a 2-0 win?

      A stunning first half free-kick, followed by an incisive second half strike after some fine hold-up play from Higuain capped off a fine week for Paulo Dybala!

      Atalanta were the next visitors to the Allianz, as the two sides locked horns in their midweek re-arranged fixture. 

      Higuain scored one from Douglas Costa's fantastic pass and breakaway and set up Blaise Matuidi for his first ever Allianz goal as the Bianconeri rolled on with another 2-0 win:

      The last fixture of the month was a trip to a foggy Bergamo to take on Atalanta in the first leg of their TIM Cup semi-final.

      It was just three minutes on the clock, when Higuain capitalised on Pjanic's pass to strike home!

      A trip on the road to SPAL followed that finished in a 0-0 stalemate, before the Bianconeri then welcomed Milan to Turin in the last game of the month.

      Once more Dybala was decisive, as he got Juve up and running after just eight minutes of play. However, former Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci headed in from a corner on the half hour mark to ensure the two sides went in level at the break.

      After the restart the Bianconeri battled to try and re-take the lead, but it wasn't an easy task against a resolute Milan side, but then in the 80th minute:

      Substitute Juan Cuadrado got a diving header on the end of a cross from Sami Khedira to the back post to restore Juve's lead. Khedira then went from provider to goalscorer, as he lashed home a low drive past Gianluigi Donnarumma to seal a 3-1 win for Juventus!

      After five big goals and an impeccably executed goal against Lazio, Paulo Dybala won a double MVP and Goal of the Month.
