Allegri says Dybala will start against Atletico; Khedira out

Speaking ahead of Juve's visit to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round-of-16 first leg, Chiellini has said swapping the goalkeeper for the forward has worked as a like-for-like transfer terms of the two players' influence off the pitch. Juventus lost to Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2017.

"Right from the first day that I arrived here, he's always given be the freedom to go out, perform and play where I wanted to".

"Atletico are very strong defensively and are very good on the counter".

Ronaldo's efforts to take the kick were then delayed by Costa, who was seen inching forward in the wall in a bid to narrow the Portuguese's angle on goal. "I said to the lads that it's important to score goals tomorrow", he said.

Paulo Dybala is a wonderful player in his own right, but he doesn't quite match up to the standards of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

"On Ronaldo, he added: "(He) is a laid-back and normal guy, like the rest of us.

The Portuguese forward, a five-times Champions League victor and the competition's all-time top scorer, has scored 21 goals since moving from Real Madrid and will be reacquainted with one of his favourite victims at the Wanda Metropolitano.

"We've got a great squad with some top professionals, who have gained a lot of experience over the course of these years".
