Paulo Dybala buzzing to be Juventus matchwinner

Paulo Dybala was delighted to prove Juventus' matchwinner for victory at Champions League opponents Atletico Madrid.

Dybala struck the only goal of the night.

“It was a good goal, as it was a difficult position, the angle was tight, there were lots of players in front of me," La Joya told Sky Sport Italia.

“The team played a really good game, especially the first half, and we're happy with the win. I feel in good shape, I try to give my best and at times can risk something a little more audacious, as things are going well for me and I want to make the most of that."

Dybala had two different celebrations, one pointing to his chin, then almost a military salute to Turkey international Merih Demiral.

“The first gesture to the chin is for my girlfriend, as we saw it in a film and it was the sign for love. As for Demiral, he's great fun and it was just a joke between us in the dressing room, there was no message in that."
