Paulo Dybala's double helps Juve defeat Barca

Paulo Dybala's double helps Juve defeat Barca

Juventus sent out a strong warning to the rest of Europe with a 3 - 0 defeat of Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final clash.

Barcelona came into the game having lost 2 - 0 to Malaga over the weekend and that seemed to affect the way they played against the Italians.

As early as the third minute, Gonzalo Higuain had a headed effort punch away by Marc Ter-Stegen.
