Chiellini: Dybala is key for Juve

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini believes Paulo Dybala could have a significant impact in the Supercoppa final on Friday.

The Old Lady will take on Milan in Doha as they aim to clinch the silverware for a fourth time in five years.

“One player on each side who could be decisive?” Chellini considered, speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“For us I choose Dybala. For them I choose… the post!

“It’s a one-off game in which incidents count even more, and in which the approach and attitude you bring can immediately take you a step further.

“In a final you have to be switched on for 90 minutes, it’s different across a League season.

“When the Coppa Italia starts people don’t give a damn, but then those who get to the semi-final realise they were right to believe in it.

“It’s the same with the Supercoppa Italiana, if you win you enjoy it. If you lose it gnaws at you. I want to enjoy it.”

The last encounter between the two sides saw the Rossoneri claim a 1-0 win at the San Siro thanks to Manuel Locatelli's strike.
