    The striker is determined to help his team secure maximum points this Saturday against Chievo as the Bianconeri embark on a big five days

    Paulo Dybala is determined to help his teammates to victory on Saturday evening when Chievo visit Juventus Stadium.

    This weekend’s upcoming league clash precedes the Bianconeri’s first Champions League match of 2015/16, when they make the trip to Manchester City next Tuesday.

    And the 21-year-old, making his debut on Filo Diretto, stressed the importance of securing all three points in Serie A before embarking on the Old Lady’s new European campaign.

    Speaking to Jtv, Dybala began: “Chievo will make for a tough game, but we’re all pumped up for it and we’ve got our eyes firmly set on winning the contest.

    “The squad has trained well, we’re in peak condition and we’re determined to show that we’re capable of retaining the Scudetto this year.”

    Turning his attentions to next week’s fixture away in Manchester, the striker spoke of his excitement at making his debut in Europe’s premier club competition.

    Under no illusions as to the challenge posed by Manuel Pellegrini’s men, he stressed the importance of approaching the match with confidence.

    "Next week will be my first time in the Champions League and it’ll certainly be an interesting experience. Playing away at City is, of course, a big challenge, but we’ll go there with the best mindset possible."

    Arriving in Turin this summer with a reputation as a talented forward with an eye for scoring goals, Dybala has already netted twice for his new club in the Super Cup final win over Lazio and against Roma.

    The former Palermo man, however, was keen to emphasise his willingness to keep developing as a player and pick up new skills along the way.

    “I’m working on holding up the ball, playing on the right side of attack and increasing my physical fitness. I'm a different player from the one last season and I'm always looking to improve my game in any way I can."

    The Argentine wrapped up proceedings by thanking the club and supporters for helping him settle quickly into his new surroundings, adding that he got a special buzz from playing in front of his new adoring faithful at Juventus Stadium, where he is keen to score his next and third goal since joining the Bianconeri.

    "I've had a fantastic welcome in Turin from the fans in the street to everyone at the club. They’ve really made me feel at home. I can’t wait to turn out again in front of our home support this Saturday. Making my debut at the ground was a fantastic feeling. With everyone so close to the pitch, it makes for a special atmosphere."

    He concluded: "I hope my next goal will be at Juventus Stadium so I can celebrate it with my friends, family and our supporters!"
