Paulo Dybala has publicized that he and Cristiano Ronaldo are fighting a battle to net 100 goals for Juventus, with both stars extremely close to the century landmark having stayed like that for longer than expected.

Aside from the setbacks, the 27-year-old faced immense competition for a spot in the first team. Moreover, Paulo Dybala’s agreement has not been extended yet and will expire in 2022. His most recent goal for Juve came in a game against Napoli on April 7.
In that game, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dybala score one goal each in the 2-1 victory as they edge closer to the century of goals. Now, the Argentine has taken to Twitch to speak regarding his tussle with Portugal’s all-time leading goalscorer.
Dybala said: “Ronaldo and I are challenging each other to reach 100 goals with Juventus. I need only one, while he still needs three.”
“He always wants to win, even in training, and if he loses he becomes difficult to deal with for a few minutes.”
The Bianconeri still has seven more fixtures left to play in this season. Six out of those are Serie A games and one in the Coppa Italia final against Atalanta on May 19.
