Paulo Dybala conquered Barcelona but it's his incredibly low socks that have everyone talking

By Max McLean

Protect your legs, man.

It seems that Barcelona just can’t get to grips with Champions League first legs, and they certainly couldn’t handle the exposed legs of Juventus’s star striker, Paulo Dybala.

The 23-year-old scored the Old Lady’s opening two goals in a 3-0 win against Barca, who will have been cruelly reminded of their 4-0 defeat against Paris St-Germain in the previous round.

And as impressive as that performance was, Dybala’s goals weren’t the only things attracting attention – his incredibly low socks got tongues wagging also.

Some admired the style of the man – it’s a look alright.

Others weren’t so keen – who knew socks could be so controversial?

Juve will travel to Barcelona as big favourites to progress to the semi-finals of the European competition, but we know you just want to see more of Dybala’s marvellous socks, so here’s a short gallery.

Those shin pads must be tiny – you’re not getting full coverage Paulo!

We can’t deny it’s not a fashionable look, however – and let’s be honest, it’s not exactly hampering his performances, is it?

More from us on Sock Watch next week.
