Dybala has his eyes on a Barcelona-Juventus final
Juventus sensation Paulo Dybala has made it very clear that he wants to have a Juventus-Barcelona UEFA Champions League final at the end of this season.
Both of these sides previously met in the final of the 2014-15 season where Barcelona convincingly won the game 3-1.
Dybala, who signed for Juventus ahead of the 2015-16 season, has already admitted that he wants to face the Catalonian giants in the final of the most prestigious competition in Europe.
As quoted by the Premium Sport, Dybala stated
“Do I want to meet Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich? I would leave Barca for the final. As it was two years ago, when I wasn't there. The draw will tell us who we face. We will try and get to the end.”
The current Serie A holders reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday by beating Portugese side, FC Porto 1-0 at home to complete a 3-0 aggregate success.
Dybala has gotten off to a great start in Turin, netting 23 times in 46 games across all competitions in his first season away from Palermo while helping Juventus win the Serie A. In summer, he was on the shortlist of scores of European clubs, and Barcelona themselves were considered to be after the 25-year-old. And the Argentine forward hopes for even more silverware this season, having already netted 14 times in 31 games across all competitions this season.
Juventus currently sit on top of the Serie A table, 8 points off second-placed AS Roma with 10 games to go. But it seems that Massimiliano Allegri’s team are hungry for success on the continental platform as well this time around.
Last season, the Turin giants were unlucky to bow out to Bavarian powerhouse, Bayern Munich. Even after having a 2-goal advantage into the second-half of second leg, they could not keep it and eventually lost at the end of extra-time as Bayern made a superb comeback.
