Allegri concerned by Chievo shot tally

Dybala switches focus to Barca after Chievo win

Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino echoed those sentiments and said Dybala could be a future Ballon d'Or victor.

The win was diminished when Mario Mandzukic forced off with an injury as Juve made it three out of three in the Serie A as they turn their attentions to the Champions League final, seeking to rectify last season's final loss.

Such is his standing, Dybala was given the Juve's illustrious number 10 jersey famously worn by club legends Michel Platini and Alessandro Del Piero, with manager Allegri feels certain he's on the path to greatness.

And Allegri was pleased with the way Dybala is fitting into the team's scheme of things.

He said to ESPN: "Dybala is improving a great deal and has everything it takes to become, along with Neymar after Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi, one of the best players in the world".

Allegri said that any system works if the players put in their maximum effort.

"Now the real season starts, with a month in which we have seven games, five in the league and two in the Champions League".

"When he plays the way he did today, when he finds the right space, he's able to put his entire repertoire on display and the team benefits enormously", he reflected.

Despite the ultimately comfortable Juventus win, Allegri urged his side to keep improving, adding: "We allowed a few too many shots on target".

After this match, Juventus will travel to Spain to take on FC Barcelona in their Champions League group stage opener on Tuesday. "He probably would have been devastating in the last half an hour today", Allegri said of the Brazilian who is on loan from Bayern Munich.

Substitute Dybala, on for the ineffective Douglas Costa, found Pjanic who slid the ball forward for Higuain to blast into the top corner.

"We must be aware that this is the first of three fundamental matches to tell us where the season will go", he said.
