"He's an important player in his team, in Europe and in the world, we know that", said the coach.

The Old Lady and Reigning Queen of Italian football sets out on another Champions League trail tonight when she travels to Catalonia for a prestige clash with old rival, Barcelona. Prior to the Argentine driving towards goal and feeding the irresistible Miralem Pjanic, who slid through the inch-perfect for Higuain, when the ball was punted up the pitch, Dybala controlled the ball with his back in what can only be described as a filthy piece of play. "If you have Dybala in the team, then the team starts to play..." "He and Neymar are the future once (Lionel) Messi and (Cristiano) Ronaldo hang up their boots", Allegri was quoted as saying by Juventus's website on Saturday.

"The playing system works as long as everyone is prepared to put in a shift both when attacking and defending", he said. He gets dozens of goals per year, especially in the decisive games. Remember those two ties were, respectively, the Berlin Champions League Final of 2015 and then last season's quarter-final clash.

'Luckily I play with Messi in the national team and it is a great pleasure to learn many things from him. Dybala will probably be flanked by "new boy" Brazilian Douglas Costa and by experienced ball victor Stefano Sturaro in a 4-2-3-1 line-up, headed obviously by Higuain.

"It's a crucial tie in that it could end up determining who tops the group". To go three games against them without conceding a goal [this year] would be extraordinary.
