      Our two-goal penalty hero warns against complacency despite Juve's 3-1 lead: "They're sure to make it tough for us at their place"

      He may have scored two in our 3-1 first-leg victory against Napoli but Paulo Dybala expects Maurizio Sarri's side to pose Juventus a real threat in the return leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

      The Argentine got the ball rolling for the Bianconeri – albeit 45 minutes late – as he converted from the spot at the start of the second half, before firing home again from 12 yards after Gonzalo Higuain's strike.

      "It was a tricky game, especially in the opening 45 minutes," Dybala conceded. "The scoreline looks good now but we mustn't underestimate Napoli because they're sure to make it tough for us at their place in the return leg.

      "We spoke together at half time when we were a goal down then came back out and instantly put into practice what we'd discussed in the dressing room."

      What was the secret to the turnaround? "We changed attitude. We went out there with a different mindset and were more aggressive. Getting the first goal straight after the restart helped too."
