Five minutes before halftime, Abraham intercepted a ball over the top for Dybala’s stunning volley, and Roma finally made their numerical advantage count. Eight minutes from the end, the two came together once more when Abraham sprinted into the right side of the box and rolled across for Dybala to score.

Since joining the team from Juventus on a free transfer this summer, Dybala has scored seven goals in 12 league games.

The 29-year-old was additionally a member of Argentina’s World Cup-winning team in Qatar, coming back from a hamstring injury to make brief cameos in both the semifinal and championship game.

With the victory, Jose Mourinho’s team extended their Serie A winning streak to five games. Their most recent Serie A defeat came at the hands of rivals Lazio in early November.

Roma is currently seventh in the league, but as the season’s halfway point approaches, Roma is only four points behind AC Milan in second place due to the gridlock behind lopsided leaders Napoli.

In his first season, Mourinho led the team to their first European trophy, defeating Feyenoord to win the UEFA Conference League in May 2022.
