Juventus goalkeeper Szczesny: Dybala made difference for Lokomotiv Moscow win

Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was always confident of victory over Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Russians had taken a shock lead after 30 minutes, but Dybala scored twice in two minutes late in the second-half to win this Champions League clash 2-1.

“It was a struggle to get the result, but we controlled the game for 90 minutes and needed a lot of patience to break them down, as they were very organised and put a solid wall back there," the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.

“A great left-foot shot from Dybala made the difference. Lokomotiv were clammed up in defence and we had to move the ball from left to right and back again to open up some spaces.

“We must continue being protagonists in Serie A too and that means getting three points against Lecce this weekend."
