Giovinco: 'Always play Juve trio'

Al Hilal striker Sebastian Giovinco insists Juventus should always play Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain together. “It’s the others who have to worry.”

Maurizio Sarri was initially hesitant to start the trio, but has done so in the last two consecutive games, winning both against Udinese and Sampdoria.

“They should always play together. As I like football. It’s the other teams who have to worry about them,” Giovinco told Il Corriere dello Sport.

Giovinco: 'Expect great Juve-Lazio'

Sebastian Giovinco is looking forward to watching Juventus-Lazio for the Italian Super Cup tomorrow and is "not surprised" Gigi Buffon is still going strong.

Giovinco played for The Old Lady from 2008-10 and again from 2012-15 before leaving for Toronto FC.

He then left the Canadian side at the beginning of 2019 to join Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Hilal, where he won the Asian Champions League.

Speaking to the Corriere dello Sport, Giovinco says he expects a great final between Juve and Lazio in Riyadh on Sunday.

Giovinco joins exclusive club

Sebastian Giovinco has joined an exclusive group of players to have scored in three elite club competitions.

Giovinco scored the winning goal for Al-Hilal as the Saudi side defeated Esteghlal FC 1-0 in the AFC Champions League group stage on Tuesday.

He netted in last year’s CONCACAF Champions League Final, when Toronto FC lost to Mexican club Guadalajara on penalties after they drew 3-3 on aggregate over two legs.

The 32-year-old, who only joined Al-Hilal in January, managed a total of four goals for Toronto in the CONCACAF Champions League.
