Paulo Dybala eclipsed the other Argentine genius on show in Turin tonight (oh, and he was better than Higuain, too).

Dybala has recovered from the ignominy of once being outscored by Kyle Lafferty for a season at Palermo and shone tonight: scoring twice to help Juventus to a 3-0 win and plant one foot in the semi-finals.

While he was given an absurd amount of space in the opening minutes in the Barcelona penalty area, Dybala's finish for the opening goal was nonetheless superb, turning to curl the ball home in the far bottom corner. You can watch it below:

A couple of years ago, his former teammate Paul Pogba used a FIFA reference to perfectly sum up the skill Dybala showed in scoring that goal.

Journalist Paolo Bandini flagged it up tonight:

The line comes from a 2016 interview in which Pogba was asked whether Dybala could approach the exalted heights of Leo Messi:

He can get there.

Do you know what I call him? Square R2, the button that you have to push on a PlayStation to do a shot on the turn - he always gets goals like that.

Has he surprised me? No, because I always said he was a phenomenon. To do what he has done, playing for Juve, is something phenomenal.

We should add the caveat that shoot on Playstation is circle, so evidently, Pogba plays FIFA using the PES controls.
