Paulo Dybala admits his last-gasp winner against Lazio is “a very important goal for Juventus and my confidence, but it could’ve ended 0-0.”
Deep into stoppages, La Joya nutmegged one player, held off another and steered his finish into the far top corner from 10 yards.
“For my confidence, it’s a very important goal, so I can keep working and improve over the next few months and help my teammates,” Dybala told Sky Sport Italia.
“This goal gives us a big result against a Lazio side that plays very good football. It will help us a lot.”
That was the first and only shot on target that Juventus managed at the Stadio Olimpico.
“It wasn’t the most beautiful match on a technical level and if it had ended 0-0, nobody would’ve complained.”
Juve go to Wembley next week to play Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League, having drawn the first leg 2-2.
“I didn’t know if I was meant to play 90 minutes, as it was my first start and we have a big game on Wednesday. The Coach asked me how I was feeling, I felt good, and got the goal at the last minute.
“We must improve our technique in London and come out stronger in the first half. We were in better physical shape than Lazio tonight, as they played 120 minutes against Milan midweek.”
