How Messi-Dybala started the season

Messi vs Dybala: How the two Argentines have started the season

September 12, 2017 By Ali M.
We take a look at their numbers ahead of their run-in in Barcelona vs Juventus.

One is Argentina’s best player; the other is hailed as the future of La Albiceleste. On Tuesday, those two stars – Lionel Messi and Paulo Dybala – will go head-to-head in the Champions League.

Barcelona and Juventus will face off in their first game of the new Champions League season, a highly-anticipated Camp Nou clash on Tuesday. Both teams need victory, and will thus look to their South American magicians for inspiration.

Ahead of their run-in, here’s how Messi and Dybala compare after only three games of the new season.

Dybala: 13

Shot accuracy

Messi: 45%

Dybala: 64%

Leo scored an impressive hat-trick over the weekend in the 5-0 win over Espanyol. Paulo’s three-goal haul came in Matchday 2 – the 4-2 win over Genoa. Not only are their goal tally identical, but so is their lack of assists.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been more skillful with his passing, creating twice as many chances as his Juventus counterpart. Not surprisingly, Leo – one of the greatest dribblers ever – enjoys a better successful take-ons rate.

The one aspect in which Dybala comes out on top is shot accuracy. The 23-year-old has scored as many times as Messi despite taking 11 fewer shots than the 30-year-old.

In their last meeting, Dybala emerged triumphant. He scored a first-leg brace to help the Bianconeri eliminate the Blaugrana. Messi will be dying for revenge after failing to score past Buffon. Only time will reveal the winner of this juicy match-up.
