Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted again, as his replacement Paulo Dybala scored the winner for Juventus against AC Milan.
The headlines should be one of two key elements of the big Serie A game of the week between Juventus and AC Milan.
Headline number one.
Paulo Dybala, linking up with Gonzalo Higuain.
An exquisite one-two on the edge of the box before the younger of the Argentine duo swept the ball home to grab his side the victory.
Headline number two.
AC Milan were very much improved and held against Serie A front runners and defending champions Juventus for 77 minutes.
There is still hope for Stefano Pioli and the Rossoneri if they can turn out more performances like that.
This time with over 30 minutes still to play, he made a decision that some are taking to social media to commend Sarri on his bravery.
Sarri substitutes Ronaldo for the 2nd time and he marches past him straight down the tunnel. Won’t end well, I suspect. Got to say, he’s a ballsy bugger is Sarri.

Sarri was vindicated for his decision, as CR7’s replacement Dybala scored the winner.
Similarly in the last game where he subbed Ronaldo for Costa, he also came on and scored the decisive goal for the Bianconeri.
Ronaldo headed straight down the tunnel in disgust.
"Cristiano hooked again by Sarri."
