Two goals from Paulo Dybala helped Juventus on their way to a strong 3-0 first leg win against Barcelona in the Champions League, with the Argentine striking in the first half to make the most of a slow start from the visitors.
Given his two goals, and his excellent performances in general since pulling on the shirt of Juventus, the Argentina
international wasn’t to be drawn into any gossip.
“I am very happy at Juventus, my contract renewal is very close and I want to make the most of what we are doing here. I am going to try to give the fans plenty to be happy about,” he told Mega.
Giorgio Chiellini added a third for the home side after the break from a corner, before the Bianconeri did well to ensure that Lionel Messi and company didn’t manage to snatch an all-important away goal.
“We knew that the game was going to be like this, with Barcelona leaving a lot of gaps, attacking a lot and allowing us to exploit the gaps on the counter attack where we were lethal,” Dybala said after the game.
“With the goal from Chiellini it allowed us to close out the game and we have a positive result.
“Barcelona had some chances to score, it was very important for us not to concede.”
Dybala was keen to put the game behind him, but similarly wasn’t phased about heading to the scene of one of the Champions League’s greatest ever comebacks.
“Now it will be different, to go there [Camp Nou] with all of their fans behind them, but we will give our best,” he added.
“The 6-1? We aren’t thinking about that, we’re going to enjoy what we’ve done, and then on Sunday we will think about Barcelona.
“We know them, we are going to give our best to get a good result in Barcelona so we are able to go through.
“We are not going to sit back, we have to go out and pressure them, because we will definitely have chances of our own.”
