Juventus 3-0 Barcelona: 5 things we learned

Paulo Dybala’s brilliant brace helped Juventus thrash Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final first leg, with Giorgio Chiellini adding a third.

The Argentine forward hit two early goals to rock the Catalans and bring memories of their 4-0 defeat by PSG in the last 16 flooding back.

Juventus started as they meant to go on and Gonzalo Higuain saw a header kept out by Marc-Andre ter Stegen before Dybala opened the scoring in the seventh minute.

Juan Cuadrado crossed to him from the right and he spun masterfully in the box before bending the ball home.

The forward was at it again in the 22nd minute, curling home from the edge of the box to stun the visitors.

At the other end Lionel Messi had a goal ruled out correctly due to Luis Suarez being offside in the build up and Iniesta forced a stunning save from Gianluigi Buffon when played in by Messi.

Juventus extended their lead to three goals in the 55th minute when Chiellini outjumped Javier Mascherano to power home a header.

Here are five things we learned from the game.
