As in his last match just before the World Cup, and after the injury that put him in check, Paulo Dybala from Cordoba has confirmed his importance for Roma. The striker generated the penalty which, although he didn’t kick it, was converted by captain Lorenzo Pellegrini and meant the 1-0 home draw against Bologna, which allows him to remain in the top five places in Serie A, which returned this Wednesday after forced break.
