Dybala switches focus to Barca after Chievo win

On target Gonzalo Higuain

Juve boss, Massimiliano Allegri, said: "Tomorrow Szczesny will play".

Perisic sealed the victory after 87 minutes with a powerful volley into the top corner.

Speaking to Mediaset Premium, Allegri said: "Dybala is improving a great deal and has everything it takes to become, along with Neymar after Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi, one of the best players in the world".

The team known as the Flying Donkeys gave Juventus a helping hand when Perparim Hetemaj inadvertently headed Miralem Pjanic's free kick into his own goal at the near post after 17 minutes.

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 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.

He said: "The season begins here because the first two games were like a little taster of the season".

Sami Khedira and Claudio Marchisio have been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League game against Barcelona, Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed. I want to note that Juventus is not Real Madrid and Manchester United, they even with a huge advantage do not go all the way forward and do not arrange concerts on goals scored.

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. "He probably would have been devastating in the last half an hour today", Allegri said of the Brazilian who is on loan from Bayern Munich. "From 2-0 onwards it was all the more hard for us".

They are equal on points with rivals Inter, AC Milan, Napoli and Sampdoria.
