With orchestrator Andrea Pirlo still sidelined, the mantle of midfield conductor will fall to Paul Pogba. While wildly different in style, the youngster still has the skill to direct and dominate play for Italian giants Juventus.

Away at Borussia Dortmund, it is the Old Lady’s options in the middle of the park that give Juve an edge and make the Serie A side 11/5 with William Hill to triumph again over 90 minutes.

Manchester United academy graduate Pogba has taken to Italian football like a duck to water, and has looked equally comfortable with his exploits in the Champions League over the past three seasons.

Now expected to be a target for rich kids Chelsea and Real Madrid, the tremendous 22-year-old has made incredible progress since exiting Old Trafford in 2012.

An all-rounder who possesses pace, athleticism, technique and an eye for a killer ball, the youngster has become one of the Turin team’s most influential players alongside pass-master Pirlo and top scorer Carlos Tevez (who is 5/1 with Sky Bet to draw first blood).

The former Tuttosport Golden Boy also has a stinging shot in his locker and has made a fool of many hapless keepers in his short career so far, with some scorching strikes from distance.

There have been a bundle of those brilliant blasts this season, with a recent match winning goal against Sassuolo one of the most impressive.

His effort certainly roused the crowd on that occasion and, after already equalling his best ever tally of nine goals in a season, Pogba is a best market price of 5/1 with Coral to make the difference again anytime against Dortmund.

Coral are also offering a cracking punt of 12/1 for Pogba to be first or last scorer against the Bundesliga club’s backline. Jurgen Klopp’s men have been surprisingly porous this campaign, conceding 31 times in the league.

Meanwhile, sought-after superstar Pogba has already grabbed a crucial Champions League goal for Juve in Europe, after firing home a winner against Olympiakos during the group stage.

Speaking recently, Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta told press: “There are so many buyers for Pogba. There are teams ready to spend 70-80 million euro for him, but we don’t want to open negotiations because we want to keep him to continue to develop here.”

After the exciting France talent’s adventures this term, it’s no wonder.
