Paulo Dybala signs new 5-year contract at Juventus

Juventus too strong for Barcelona in Europe

"Juventus Football Club is pleased to announce that Paulo Dybala has renewed his contract until 30 June 2022, extending a journey that began in July 2015", Juventus' statement reads.

Paulo Dybala has insisted he is happy at Juventus after playing a starring role in his side's 3-0 destruction of Barcelona in the Champions League.

Dybala hit two goals in the first half to give the Italians a comfortable lead heading into next week's quarter-final second leg at the Nou Camp. But I take responsibility for this. "At the moment it is hard to see a comeback next week, but certainly as the days pass we will see it easier, while well aware of how difficult it will be". It's step one to the semifinal, but the next leg is a different matter.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri wanted to make sure his team did not get carried away with one of their best performances under his leadership. "We have to think that we can turn it around in front of our fans and in our stadium".

Juve midfielder Miralem Pjanic praised his goalkeeper following the match. They needed another four minutes to go ahead when Cuadrado found Dybala who cleverly turned and curled a left-foot shot past Marc Andre ter Stegen.

Messi had an effort ruled out for offside on the half-hour.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona's flight back from Turin was "like a funeral", while Lionel Messiwas said to be "enraged" with his team's lack of defensive consistency following another disappointing defeat. "It was a great victory, achieved by everyone".

Barcelona regrouped and grew more effective on the attack, though an apparent Messi goal was disallowed because Luis Suarez was offside.

Chiellini later dedicated the goal to his former Italy teammate Giuseppe Rossi after the American-born forward suffered another serious knee injury. It will be a challenge for the Catalan club to score enough goals to go further in the tournament.
