Painful night for Barcelona, says Ter Stegen

Allegri hails greatest result of Juventus reign after battering Barcelona

Allegri hails greatest result of Juventus reign after battering Barcelona

The Argentine superstar outshadowed Messi, Neymar and Suarez last night as Juventus murdered Barcelona 3-0 at the J Stadium in the first leg of their Champions League quarter final.

A massive prospect by most estimates, Paulo Dybala is skilful, hard-working and a brilliant dribbler; he confirmed that his finishing is pretty unbelievable, too, with two goals against Barcelona.

He won the Italian Super Cup in 2015, scoring in the final against Lazio.

Defiant Barcelona star Andres Iniesta insists it is still all to play for in Barcelona next week - and it is less of a challenge than that faced against PSG in the last round.

And it's that mix of experience and youth that could see Juventus win European soccer's greatest club prize for the first time since 1996.

But moments later, Juventus surged down the left flank and Mario Mandzukic crossed for the unmarked Dybala, who fired his second of the game.

"It was an important save considering the moment, also a hard one, as it was an issue of thousandths of a second".

"If I have the ambition of still being considered a great goalkeeper, I need to do these things".

Another simply said "Immense Joya", playing off Dybala's nickname "La Joya" (jewel) and the word joy.

Dybala has improved by tremendously since joining from Palermo for 32 million euros (then $36 million) in June 2015.

"Paulo is a world class talent, more than anything because he has taken really quick steps", Chiellini said.

Dybala told reporters: "We played a great game and we made the best of the chances we had and it is certainly a great result ahead of the return leg in Barcelona".

It could have been worse for Barcelona had Ter Stegen not saved well on two occasions from Gonzalo Higuain, and officials not disallowed a goal from Juan Cuadrado that television replays showed to be good.
