Paulo Dybala Juventus hero shuts down exit reports

On the latter side of half-time, it took just under a quarter of an hour for Girogio Chiellini's forehead to produce Juve's third, effectively sealing the game.

Dybala said: "I've always just wanted to succeed in everything that I do and I know that Juventus is the flawless place to be if you want to win things".

However, after playing a starring role in his side's 3-0 Champions League win over Barcelona on Tuesday, he told Spanish TV channel Mega: "I'm very happy at Juventus and I'm very close to signing a new contract".

"The sensation is that we are living through another nightmare", Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. I'm responsible 101 percent ...

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri did not go into raptures about Dybala, noting that to do so would be "disrespectful to his team-mates, who all had a fantastic game".

He said post-match: 'People need to understand that I am Paulo Dybala and that's who I want to continue to be. "In Barcelona, it will be different and we have to try and score a goal".

Juve midfielder Miralem Pjanic praised his goalkeeper following the match.

Barca responded well and could have grabbed an equaliser after 20 minutes when Lionel Messi threaded the ball to Andres Iniesta, whose low shot was well saved by Gianluigi Buffon.

And it's that mix of experience and youth that could see Juventus win European soccer's greatest club prize for the first time since 1996.

Rio Ferdinand has slammed Barcelona after their shock defeat to Juventus, branding half of the team as unfit to wear the club's shirt. "It was a great victory, achieved by everyone".

Juventus had to wait two years for another chance against Barcelona.

Chiellini later dedicated the goal to his former Italy teammate Giuseppe Rossi after the American-born forward suffered another serious knee injury.

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