Pirlo fired off four shots and scored a beautiful free kick goal on Sunday against Torino.

The 35-year-old was influential yet again for Juve, but couldn't quite help his team avoid an upset defeat against their city rivals. Pirlo, who now has four goals and four assists in 17 Serie A matches this season, will next take the field against Fiorentina on Wednesday.

Pirlo scored from beyond 30-yards out during Juve's 2-1 win over Atalanta on Friday.

Pirlo continues to be more important to Juventus than to fantasy owners, as the rocket goal was only his third in 15 Serie A appearances this season.

Pirlo tied for the team lead with three shots, though only one was on goal, during Juventus' 4-0 win over Verona on Sunday.

Pirlo has been playing well of late, with two assists in his last four league matches, though he hasn't scored since Nov. 30 against Torino. He continues to be a free-kick maestro, but his fantasy upside is somewhat limited in most leagues given that he doesn't score a ton of goals.

Pirlo scored on a free kick in stoppage time to give Juventus a 2-1 victory rival Torino Sunday.

He is simply one of the best to have ever played the game.

It was vintage Pirlo, bending a free kick inside the far post from 25 yards out to open things up in Tuesday's 3-2 Champions League win over Olympiacos.

He turned one in on the weekend against Empoli and only had to wait three days to do it again, this time to the Greek giants. This one was gigantic, as Juve are level on points with Olympiacos in Group A, with two games remaining.

Pirlo scored from a free-kick in Saturday's 2-0 win over Empoli.

Pirlo has long been a dead-ball specialist and flashed his ability from set-pieces once again Saturday. In doing so, the Italian scored his first goal of the season, which comes after he picked up an assist last weekend.

Pirlo returned from a hip injury to start Juventus' 3-2 win over Roma on Sunday, finishing with one off-target shot and two fouls drawn.

Pirlo took only one shot during the match, though he's never been a high-volume shooter anyway. He continues to be exceptionally dangerous on free kicks, but he's not a big scorer and doesn't garner a ton of assists any more, making him a bigger name than a great fantasy play.
