Paulo Dybala noted the importance of the breakthrough goal in the 2-0 win over SPAL and Juventus “had a lot of chances.”
Miralem Pjanic opened the scoring with a deflected volley from outside the box, then Cristiano Ronaldo nodded in a Dybala cross.
“It’s important to win these games. We were a little slow in our movements in the first half, but fortunately we broke through at the last second before the break and that meant SPAL had to open up,” Dybala told Sky Sport Italia.
“It created more spaces for us and we had a lot of chances, the goalkeeper did well, but we got the second in the end.
“The move for the second goal was a well-worked team approach with a lot of one-touch football.”
Juve are going into the Champions League with Bayer Leverkusen, while Atletico Madrid visit Lokomotiv Moscow.
“Every game is important and difficult in the Champions League, as don’t forget we were 2-0 up against Atletico Madrid and conceded two goals in a few minutes.
“We have to keep focused and work hard until the final whistle.”
