Juventus star Paulo Dybala discusses difficulties of playing alongside Lionel Messi

Mino Raiola speaks about Paulo Dybala to Rai Sport

Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala has commented on the rumours that FC Barcelona want him to link up with Lionel Messi at club level. Prior to the Argentine driving towards goal and feeding the irresistible Miralem Pjanic, who slid through the inch-perfect for Higuain, when the ball was punted up the pitch, Dybala controlled the ball with his back in what can only be described as a filthy piece of play. Having reached and then lost two of the last three finals, Juventus may well be hoping that this season it is a case of "third time lucky".

While most sites are offering Dybala at 25/1 to win the golden boot, you can still take the Juventus man at 33/1 with some, and with the odds that favourable it's no surprise to see many taking a gamble on him as Juventus look set to go far in the tournament.

When asked if he can be as good as Messi, the 23-year-old said: "The truth is for me, it's a big pleasure". This is hardly a surprise, there is hardly anything new about Messi playing the match victor role for Barca. He gets dozens of goals per year, especially in the decisive games.

While his talent his unquestionable, the fact remains that Dybala plays in the exact same position as Messi, behind a main striker.

Messi treble stretches Barca lead over wasteful Real
Suarez was little doubt that Messi was the hero of the hour and handed his team-mate familiar plaudits. With four minutes to go Pique rose highest to head in a corner from Rakitic.

Do you think Dybala could be the ideal man for Barca in the future?

"But one thing is simple".

With Croat Mario Mandzukic, German Sami Khedira and veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini all out through injury and with Colombian Juan Cuadrado suspended, Allegri will have to make changes tonight. "In their best years they had Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta at their best".
