Paulo Dybala

Dybala was one of the many players interviewed after Juventus’ historic 0-0 draw today that sends Barcelona home and eliminated from the competition. Dybala confessed that keeping two clean sheets over two legs was easier said than done.

“We are so happy with this achievement against a great Barcelona side,” Dybala confessed  to Mediaset Premium.

“Considering all the games leading up to this, including PSG, we knew that we had to be solid. Keeping a clean sheet over two legs against Barcelona is not easy.

“My ‘new’ boots brought me luck with the two goals in the first leg and the qualification, so I’ll continue at least in the Champions League.”

Dybala was asked if he and Messi exchanged words after the game:

“Messi? We didn’t really talk, we just said hi, along with all the other players.”

Now Juventus will have to deal with one of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco in the semifinal.

“When we watched the Champions League draw, we wanted anyone except Barcelona and picked them out the hat. So now we’ll just see what happens – there are no favourites.”
