What a night it was for the German international. Khedira bagged his first senior hat-trick scoring in the 21st, 59th and 87th minutes to lead Juve to an important three points. Having returned to the squad for last week's match after a little over a month out due to injury, Khedira reminded everyone just how important he is to the squad.
Khedira's triple accentuated the fact that the German has really stepped up his scoring record since moving to the Bianconeri as seen by this table:
- Real Madrid | 161 matches - 9 goals
- VFB Stuttgart | 132 matches - 16 goals
- Juventus | 77 matches - 13 goals
While Massimiliano Allegri doesn't necessarily ask for goals primarly from the midfield workhorse, we see what a difference it makes when players can come up from midfield adding to the attack. Bravo, Sami!
