Pjanic, the free-kick marksman, found the back of the net with another trademark dead-ball strike to open the scoring on Sunday at the Dall'Ara.
"It wasn't easy, because the position wasn't at the top of the box, but there was the space to fire it in. I measured up the pace well and got good curl on it," explained Miralem. "Then it takes a little luck, of course.
"I'm happy because it helped earn the result and turn the game in our favour. We were dominating, but we lacked that final touch in front of goal. The strike gave us the ability to manage the game.
"A free-kick challenge with Dybala? It's fun. We train to do what I did yesterday, score goals and help the team win. We must thank the goalkeepers who stay with us even after training. It is thanks to them that we can fine-tune our free-kicks."
