Last night, Juventus and Lazio butted heads in the absence of two deadly strikers. But while the Eagles looked toothless without Ciro Immobile, the Bianconeri were able to rely on Moise Kean and Arek Milik, who were more than capable replacements for the injured Dusan Vlahovic.
The Pole enjoyed a great performance, and scoring his side’s third goal was the icing on the cake. However, it was the young Italian who established himself as the star of the show by scoring the first two.
The Everton loan-out broke the tie with a cheeky lob, before finding himself in the right place at the right time to seize the rebound. This double came just three days after his winner in Verona.
Kean is obviously enjoying the moment, but he made sure to pay tribute to his manager Max Allegri and his Juventus team-mates for their continued support during his difficult spell earlier in the campaign.
“The only way to respond to criticism is to do well on the pitch, we achieved an excellent result playing as a team,” the 22-year-old said in his post-match interview with Sky Sport via TuttoJuve.
“The coach is experienced and has always been right with me. He has always given me advice and I want to reciprocate it on the pitch.
“At the beginning it wasn’t easy, but my teammates and the coach helped me a lot. They never stopped believing in me.
“But things don’t happen by chance. They helped me a lot and it is something I will never forget. I’m happy and I want to do better and better”.
