      Paulo Dybala believes that Juventus have the credentials to be considered among for the favourites in this season’s Champions League. But first, Porto...

      Focus on the quarters

      "Whatever the competition, we approach every game with the same focus. We’re coming into this game in great form and on the back of a morale-boosting win over Milan.

      "Barcelona? The only thing to be learned from that game is that nothing should be taken for granted in football. Having the quality players like Barca do makes results like that more achievable but when you have the desire to fight until the very end, anything is possible."

      Game plan for Porto

      "Porto will give us a tough game, let’s not forget that they have already won in Italy this season. The sending off made for a very different encounter in Portugal in the first leg and we are expecting a real test of our mettle tomorrow night.

      "Conceding a goal is never in our plans but if Porto do get a breakthrough early on then we need to remain calm and make sure we produce a reaction.

      "We have some world-class defenders in the squad and we defend resiliently as a team. Preparations for this game have gone  very well and we have a good idea of how we will keep Porto out and make chances of our own at the other end." 

      UCL dreams

      "Winning the Champions League at my age in just my second year at the club would be incredible. It’s a dream we all share; there are guys here that want to win it and some that have already. Either way, the desire to go as far as we can is so strong.

      "I want to score more goals in this competition and make as big an impact as possible but if we keep us this momentum and go all the way to the final then I will be delighted regardless.

      "I’m playing in a role that suits my characteristics well; while I didn’t expect the tactical change the coach has asked me to make, I am much better for it. I love receiving the ball between the lines and making things happen for my team-mates."

      Juve flying high

      "Anyone who gets to this stage of the Champions League has the quality to go on and win the trophy. We are playing at a level at the moment that puts us in the same bracket as Europe’s other top clubs, if not above them.

      "We are top of the league, we have a great chance of reaching the UCL quarter-finals and we are one step away from the Coppa Italia final." 

      "Milan? Biggest moment of my career"

      "The spot-kick against Milan was probably one of the biggest moments of my career so far for what had come before it over the 90 minutes, the fact that I had missed a penalty in Doha and the amount of time that passed between the foul being given and my stepping up to shoot. The feeling when it hit the net was unforgettable."
