: Paulo Dybala scored a great goal before tearing off the field with an injury on Sunday in Turin with a 3-2 win over Sampdoria, the first Serie A home win.

The Argentine international shot a low shot into the lower corner after 10 minutes, but hobbled away shortly afterwards with an obvious muscle problem, which could exclude him from the Champions League duel against European champions Chelsea on Wednesday.

Leonardo Bonucci doubled Juve’s lead from the penalty spot before Maya Yoshida quickly drew Samp behind and extended the home side’s clean sheet run to 20 games in the league.

Manuel Locatelli scored his first goal for the Bianconeri in the second half, but Antonio Candreva’s late goal put Juve on a nervous end before he took a second straight league win.

“It was fundamental to win today and we won. We say things in the Changing room that will stay there, but now we have to go on like this, “Locatelli told DAZN.

“I hope Dybala’s injury is nothing. He’s our champion and I hope he’s back as soon as possible.”

The team of Massimiliano Allegri climbed to ninth place with eight points, three points ahead of 14th Sampdoria, but eight behind leaders AC Milan.

Juventus won their first league game 2021-22 in their fifth attempt against Spezia on Wednesday, and they got off to a strong start against Samp when Dybala drilled the opener home.

Federico Chiesa shot wide from a good position and Alvaro Morata was blocked by Emil Audero when Juve pressed for a second, but her positive start was dampened by Dybala’s tearful exit mid-first half.

Bonucci doubled the lead off point after a shot from Chiesa hit Nicola Murru in the arm, but less than two minutes later Yoshida pulled back a header.

The Japanese defender’s goal means that Juventus since beating Spezia 3-0 on the 2nd.

Dejan Kulusevski threw himself on a slack pass into the samp box and put Locatelli on the edge of the six-yard box for the third Juves. But Candreva’s goal in the 83rd minute made for an exciting end.
