UCL top scorer: Dybala has more bets than all other strikers combined

Paulo Dybala scores for Juventus versus Chievo in Serie A

"Dybala will grow more and more, but there's still a long way to go for him [to reach Messi's level]".

Davids played for both Juve and Barça during his playing career, and he gave his opinion on tonight's game.

"If you want to hurt Dybala, then continue making such comparisons", Davids told Gazzetta dello Sport.

They are, as demonstrated both past year and in 2015, a formidable side in Europe, yet their domestic league lacks the competitiveness and clout needed to truly propel him on to the world stage.

Dybala is a brilliant player, combining speed, technique, and vision to create opportunities for himself and his teammates in a manner not all that dissimilar to Eden Hazard.

"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".

On Saturday night against Chievo, he came on ten minutes into the second half with the scoreline on 1-0 for Juventus after a somewhat uninspired first half. As of this weekend, Dybala is joint top of the goalscorers chart on five goals alongside Mauro Icardi of Inter Milan.

This season, record Italian champions Juventus have given Dybala their coveted No.10 shirt - previously worn by the likes of Omar Sivori, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero.

With Croat Mario Mandzukic, German Sami Khedira and veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini all out through injury and with Colombian Juan Cuadrado suspended, Allegri will have to make changes tonight. "But so are (Gonzalo) Higuain, (Miralem) Pjanic and (Andrea) Barzagli". Dybala will probably be flanked by "new boy" Brazilian Douglas Costa and by experienced ball victor Stefano Sturaro in a 4-2-3-1 line-up, headed obviously by Higuain. "In their best years they had Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta at their best".
