Saints loanee Dani Osvaldo plays part in Juventus going 14 points clear at top of Italian League

Basingstoke Gazette: Dani Osvaldo Dani Osvaldo

SAINTS loanee Dani Osvaldo is still waiting for his first league goal for Juventus - but he did set up last night's winner at struggling Catania.

Osvaldo created the opening for Carlos Tevez's 59th minute winner as Juve ground out a bad-tempered 1-0 victory over 10-man opponents to pull 14 points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

The reigning champions and likely winners of a third-straight Scudetto have struggled to put lesser opposition to bed in recent weeks and were uninspired when beating the league's bottom side.

Osvaldo, after four sub appearances in the league, was making his second start last night up front alongside Tevez.

But he was taken off shortly after setting up Tevez's goal and is still waiting to complete 90 Serie A minutes for Juve after joining them on loan from Saints at the end of January.

Good on him; he needs to become so crucial to Juventus that they simply have to sign him from us. Then we can spend the money on an even-tempered team playing striker.

Just how he likes it- although I'm sure the two personalities will fall out at some stage.
Upside-double the fee?
