Juventus coach Allegri says Dybala can be best footballer in future

Dybala switches focus to Barca after Chievo win

Dybala switches focus to Barca after Chievo win

The Argentina forward came off the bench to net his fifth goal in three Serie A games this season, with Juve maintaining its 100 per cent start to the top-flight campaign.

Paulo Dybala inspired Juventus to a 3-0 win over Chievo on Saturday ahead of next week's Champions League opener at Barcelona with the game between Sampdoria and Roma in Genoa postponed because of adverse weather conditions. Giorgio Chiellini, Sami Khedira, Claudio Marchisio and Alex Sandro were out injured.

The hosts went in front through Perparim Hetemaj's own goal after the Finnish midfielder inadvertently headed in from Miralem Pjanic's cross.

But striker Gonzalo Higuain smashed in Juve's second from inside the area and Paulo Dybala converted a low finish following a mazy run.

"It wasn't easy today because we were playing with three in midfield for the first time and Pjanic in front of the defence", Juventus chief coach Massimilano Allegri was quoted as saying by his club's website.

She told The Associated Press that from her 14th floor apartment, she saw the crane toppled over where it hit another building. Miami officials said Tuesday in a tweet .

It secured a third win in as many games for Allegri's side and a maximum nine points in their bid for a seventh straight title.

Allegri added: "I'm really happy with the way Howedes has integrated with everyone".

Wojciech Szczesny, starting in place of Gianluigi Buffon, was called into action to keep out Ivan Radovanovic's low drive from a set-piece, before Pucciarelli was again involved, forcing the Poland keeper to his right as Chievo showed their threat in attack once more just prior to the break.

New arrival Mattia De Sciglio is eager to impress his former AC Milan coach Allegri, but he said that the team have to get the job done against Chievo first.

"The team was winning when I came on and there were spaces to play in", Dybala said.
