Dybala switches focus to Barca after Chievo win

Dybala switches focus to Barca after Chievo win

Dybala has scored seven goals in four games in the early part of the season.

Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino also echoed Allegri's sentiments after he was beaten once by the 23-year-old.

After dispatching Chievo, the Champions League finalists face the trickier prospect of a European curtain-raiser against Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night.

Such is his standing, Dybala was given the Juve's illustrious number 10 jersey famously worn by club legends Michel Platini and Alessandro Del Piero, with manager Allegri feels certain he's on the path to greatness.

"Paulo will become one of the best players in the world".

Argentine Messi and Portuguese Ronaldo have won nine FIFA World Player of the Year awards between them.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri will get a final chance to test his troops before next week's Champions League opener at Barcelona in Saturday's Serie A tie at home against Chievo.

Three days ahead of their trip to the Camp Nou Massimiliano Allegri tested his troops after the worldwide break which had deprived the champions of key players.

Allegri's 4-2-3-1 won several accolades last season but 1-4 loss to Real Madrid in Champions League final asked several questions.

"The team was winning when I came on and there were spaces to play in", Dybala said.

Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic whipped in the free-kick from a tight angle, and it came off the unfortunate Hetemaj's head at the near post.

Despite the ultimately comfortable Juventus win, Allegri urged his side to keep improving, adding: "We allowed a few too many shots on target".

"Douglas Costa still needs to grasp how Italian football works and get used to defenders doubling up on him".

"Last season we played 57 competitive games, on top of internationals, so there are naturally some problems to consider", Marotta told Mediaset Premium.
