All it took was three minutes for Merih Demiral to get on the scoresheet last night. His strike came from an assist by Paulo Dybala, who curled in a delightful set-piece for the Turk to tap into the back of the net. His strike was his third Serie A goal overall, and there seems to be a common trend with his goals scored: all three have been scored in the first half and from a set piece situation.
But that is not all, last night Demiral became the first Turkish player to score a goal for Juventus in Serie A, seeing him go down in the history books. That is not all though, the 21-year-old also became one of the youngest scoring defenders in this season's Serie A campaign, with only Kumbulla and Bianconero teammate de Ligt being younger than him and getting on the scoresheet.
Unfortunately, Demiral was taken off shortly after due to a knee injury and we hope to see him back soon!
