Juventus 4/1 to progress against Porto

Juventus 4/1 to progress against Porto

Pjaca replaced Cuadrado after 67 minutes and had the Serie A champions ahead less than five minutes later, finishing well for his first Juve goal after Dybala's pass was deflected perfectly into his path.

Juventus took advantage of an early red card shown to Alex Telles to take the first leg 2-0 and as a result are in a commanding to position to make it through to the quarters.

"But we'll be going out to win this game, and keep a clean sheet".

Juventus last won the Champions League in the 1995/96 season and had to rebuild their reputation following the Calciopoli match fixing scandal, where they were stripped of two league title and demoted to the Serie B in 2006.

Although further progress would depend on who the Italians are paired with in Friday's quarter-final draw, Dybala said he is not alone in dreaming of lifting the trophy in Cardiff in May.

Striker Dybala thinks Juve have earned the right to be mentioned in the same breath as the biggest clubs in Europe, despite having not won the Champions League since 1996.

Despite the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid being in the last eight, Buffon picked out Leicester as the competition's danger team.

"Since the start of the competition we've all been on the same level".

On top of domestic league success, the Bianconeri remain in contention to win competitions they are involved in: Champions League and Coppa Italia. Given the age I am, and in my second year, winning the Champions League would definitely be insane.

Allegri called for his side to approach the match professionally despite their lead and they did just that, with Alex Sandro bursting down the left wing and crossing for Dybala to shoot over the crossbar in the third minute.
