Paulo Dybala accidentally exposes Juventus tactics in dressing room picture with Cristiano Ronaldo
- Paulo Dybala shared snap with his 23million Instagram followers after game
- Juventus beat Empoli 2-1 courtesy of two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo
- Portuguese posed for picture with Dybala next to tactics sheet stuck to wall
- It detailed various roles for Juventus players during their set-piece routines
Paulo Dyblala inadvertently revealed Juventus’ set-piece tactics as he shared a picture with Cristiano Ronaldo in their dressing room.
The Argentine forward captained his side for the first time in their 2-1 win over Empoli on Saturday and had a celebratory picture with Ronaldo, who scored both goals.
The Portuguese pointed his finger towards Dybala who wore a huge grin on his face, unaware of the tactics sheet taped onto the wall in shot.

The tactics on the sheet seemed to mostly apply to defensive set-piece routines
It appeared to display set-piece information with instructions to certain players over what duties to fulfil during free-kicks.
For example Punizione Laterale Bassa, meaning ‘wide free-kick’ provided information on Rodrigo Bentacur and Ronaldo marking a zone whilst Federico Bernardeschi and Miralem Pjanic were told to guard the box.
Though the tactics aren’t exactly revolutionary and don’t necessarily give an opponent the edge, Massimiliano Allegri would no doubt appreciate more discretion.

But the Juventus boss might be in a forgiving mood for Dyblala however, as the 24-year-old had a hand in both goals.
The Italian champions came from behind, with Dybala winning the penalty for Ronaldo to equalise before winning back possession during the move that resulted in a 70th minute winner.
The chasing pack will take any minor advantage thrown their way, including leaked tactics, as Juventus have now stretched their lead over Napoli in second to six points.
