      "Lazio deserved it. Their third goal summed up the game," said the striker after the Super Cup defeat

      Paulo Dybala was in no mood for making excuses after Juventus were beaten 3-2 by Lazio in the Italian Super Cup on Sunday night.

      "Quite simply, Lazio deserved it," said Dybala, who scored a quickfire brace on his first appearance in the No.10 jersey. "There’s no point dwelling on the build-up to their winner – that goal summed up a match that we didn’t do enough to win. Of course, had we got to extra time we would have had a good chance of winning because they were tired, but it went the way it did."

      Despite his goals, Dybala stressed that his overriding emotion was disappointment at the result.

      "I want to win and so do Juventus, so I can’t be happy," he said. "That would be egotistical – it wouldn’t be right, not for my team-mates and not for our fans. All I can say is that I’ll work hard to keep improving and to make sure we win, which is what counts. I’m delighted to be at Juve and to have the No.10 shirt. I’m still young and I want to keep developing here."

      Last but not least, Dybala dismissed suggestions that Juve’s recent dominance of Serie A makes them red-hot favourites this time around.

      "We need to forget what we did last year,” he said. "It won’t be easy this season. Our rivals are waiting for us, but we know we’re a good side. In other words, it’s all down to us."
