In a stunning Thursday night performance against Frosinone, Arkadiusz Milik etched his name in the record books by scoring a remarkable hat-trick. The Polish striker’s feat becomes even more impressive as he now boasts hat-tricks for four different clubs: Ajax, Napoli, Olympique Marseille, and the latest, Juventus. Interestingly, this achievement mirrors that of Cristiano Ronaldo, who also achieved hat-tricks for four different clubs – Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Al-Nassr.
Milik’s three goals not only secured Juventus a spot in the semi-finals of the Italian Cup but also marked the first “Polish” hat-trick in the club’s history. The striker needed a mere 48 minutes to complete his hat-trick, starting with a penalty in the 11th minute, followed by goals in the 38th and 48th minutes. This stellar performance ended Milik’s three-month goal drought in the best possible manner.
Thursday night’s hat-trick also meant Juventus fans witnessed their first hat-trick in a cup match since the legendary Alessandro Del Piero achieved the feat in January 2006, netting three goals against Fiorentina in a 4-1 Coppa Italia victory.
