Serie A: Joint celebration shows growing Ronaldo, Dybala rapport

The former Real Madrid forward has already developed a good partnership with Mandzukic and it now appears as though his understanding with Dybala is developing swiftly, too.

Ronaldo and Dybala have been an opponent's nightmare in recent times

The flourishing partnership between Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala has led to a joint celebration.

Dybala scored his first league goal since Nov. 3 in Juventus' 3-0 Serie A win over Frosinone last Friday and celebrated by merging Ronaldo's distinctive celebration — of jumping and turning in the air while letting out a yell — with his own mask gesture.

Ronaldo had combined their celebrations after scoring in the previous match.

Dybala later posted several pictures on social media of the two of them celebrating, with the caption: "Give a title to this album... (hashtag)dybalamask (hashtag)siuuuuuuu or .... (hashtag)siuuumask."

Ronaldo, who had set up Dybala's goal, performed their combined celebration again when he scored the third goal against Frosinone, following a pass by Mario Mandzukic.

The former Real Madrid forward has already developed a good partnership with Mandzukic and it now appears as though his understanding with Dybala is developing swiftly, too.

That is causing Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri a selection headache for Wednesday's Champions League round of 16 game at Atletico Madrid. All three forwards could play, with Dybala dropping deeper, as has happened on a number of occasions this season.

"We're going to Madrid to score," Allegri said. "Obviously it will be a different game, but we are fine.

"I still have some doubts on the formation — the important thing is that the challenge is approached with the right focus."

Juventus has scored three goals and conceded none in each of its previous two matches. Moreover, Ronaldo has scored 22 times in 31 matches against Atletico.
