The 23-year-old has scored 49 goals in 98 games for Juventus since his arrival in the summer of 2015.
Curiously, and just to keep the parallel lines flowing, both sides were mightily inspired by their two Argentinian wizards, Leo Messi for Barca and Paulo Dybala for Juventus. One recent prime example is the acquisition of Paulo Dybala, who has become one of Europe's best young talents since his €40 million move from Palermo.
After this match, Juventus will travel to Spain to take on FC Barcelona in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday.
"Douglas Costa still needs to grasp how Italian football works and get used to defenders doubling up on him".
Cavs' Thomas to miss start of season, maybe much longer
If that doesn't get you excited for NBA basketball right there, I don't think you can even call yourself a basketball fan at all. The state of Thomas' hip during a physical was a holdup in completing the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics .
Dybala is under no illusions that he still has a lot to do to reach the Barcelona man's level, although given his incredible potential, there is no reason why he can not emulate his achievements in the game.
Juve boss Max Allegri has tipped Dybala to align himself alongside Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to compete for player of the year honours.
They are, as demonstrated both a year ago and in 2015, a formidable side in Europe, yet their domestic league lacks the competitiveness and clout needed to truly propel him on to the world stage. "If you have Dybala in the team, then the team starts to play..." "But so are (Gonzalo) Higuain, (Miralem) Pjanic and (Andrea) Barzagli". To go three games against them without conceding a goal [this year] would be extraordinary. Dybala will probably be flanked by "new boy" Brazilian Douglas Costa and by experienced ball victor Stefano Sturaro in a 4-2-3-1 line-up, headed obviously by Higuain.
