Paulo Dybala is one of the young gems in the world football who you can only predict will soar to the very top level in the game.

The 23-year old has been a breath of fresh air since join Juventus from Palermo in 2015, showing a real predatory striker's instinct in attack and drawing comparisons with fellow Argentine Lionel Messi for his supreme dribbling ability and wand of a left peg.

That left peg produced more magic this evening against Atalanta in the Coppa Italia.

The Old Lady are currently 2-0 up and Dybala played a starring role.

He opened the scoring with a stunning strike from the edge of the box, getting on the end of Mario Mandzukic's clever knockdown.

Quite rightly nicknamed 'The Jewel', Dybala absolutely rifled the ball into the net from the edge of the area, scoring in his second game on the trot - having netted in the 3-0 win over Bologna in Serie A at the weekend.

Watch the fine strike:

Dybala then contributed further for his side by returning the favour to strike partner Mandzukic, who bagged the second.

What a talent he is.
