Juventus striker Paulo Dybala scored 3 stunning Lionel Messi-like goals on Sunday

Paulo Dybala single-handedly savaged Sassulo in a Serie A match on Sunday.

The 23-year-old, who has been hailed as the next Lionel Messi, claimed a hat-trick so stunning that his Argentina team-mate would have been proud to score it himself.

Playing with freedom and confidence, Juventus forward Dybala ran Sassuolo ragged.

He swept home from 25 yards for his first goal in the 15th minute.

Half an hour later, Dybala’s deft control allowed him to squeeze the ball through the last man of the defence and put the ball in the back of the net.

To complete his Lionel Messi like hat-trick, Dybala bent a free-kick over the wall and beyond the reaches of goalkeeper Andrea Consigli. Juventus won the game 3-1.

Dybala has now scored 10 goals in six appearances in all competitions so far this season and is seemingly justifying his €144 million (£127 million/$US172 million) market valuation by Swiss think tank Football Observatory.
