Paulo Dybala is certain, Juventus is on par with Barcelona and Real Madrid. And blames bad luck for their misfortune on the UCL scene.
Juventus has dominated the Serie A for the past five seasons. And are also two-time defending champions of the Coppa.
However, they’ve not been able to mirror their domestic success in Europe. Champions League runners-up to Barca in 2014-15, Juve were beaten by Bayern Munich in extra time in last season’s round of 16.
But Dybala is confident the club can count themselves among Europe’s elite.
“Juventus are a great team, exactly like Real, Bayern Munich and Barcelona,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Two years ago we came close to victory in the [Champions League] final. With Bayern last season we were eliminated with 30 seconds left, we lacked just a little luck.”
