Dusan Vlahovic Just Scored 30 Seconds Into His Champions League Debut, He Is Inevitable
| Last updated
Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic has just scored 32 seconds into his Champions League debut - he's going to be one of the world's top forwards for years to come.
Max Allegri's side are currently facing Villarreal in the first leg of their last 16 clash and they've got off to the best start possible.
Danilo picked up a loose ball in midfield and fired it over the top for Vlahovic to latch on to.
The 22-year-old took it down on his chest before firing past Geronimo Rulli for his first goal in European football.
Vlahovic joined Juventus from Fiorentina in January after impressing in Serie A, scoring an incredible 17 goals in 22 games for his £75 million move.
Fans have reacted to his goal and they believe it won't be long until he's up there with the likes of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.
One commented: "Wtf how has he done that so fast? Unreal player."
Another added: "Pure filth. What a finish that is."
A third said: "Gonna be an elite bagsman this lad."
While someone put: "Eats goals for fun."
Vlahovic had been linked with a move to Arsenal in January but opted to remain in Italy.
Juventus are without a number of key players this evening with Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini, Daniele Rugani and Federico Bernardeschi ruled out, while Federico Chiesa will be out long-term.
Villarreal won the Europa League after defeating Manchester United last May and Allegri is aware of the challenge Unai Emery's side will pose.
When asked if he was aware of their never say die attitude, Allegri replied per OneFootball: “Very. Because the coach is clever and cunning.
"We need a serious match, a Champions League match to be played with great calmness and focus.
"We'll have to be good at managing the ball, which is something we'll have to improve on."
Elsewhere in the Champions League this evening, Chelsea are leading Lille 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
