Paulo Dybala gave the hosts a 2-0 lead in the opening 45 minutes on Tuesday at the Juventus Stadium after firing home in the seventh and 22nd minutes.

The Argentine striker picked out the left corner on his first finish after Juan Cuadrado picked out the 23-year-old inside the penalty area before Mario Mandzukic found Dybala on the second attempt 15 minutes later.
