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."
