Juventus manager Massimilano Allegri has confirmed his star player and Argentina star Paulo Dybala is 100 percent fit and prepared to take on Real Madrid on Tuesday in a UEFA Champions League.

The Bianconeri will miss the educated feet of the suspended Miralem Pjanić, but they are hardly short of weapons in a tie which the reigning champions enter as only slight favourites.

"He's going to play a great game. He is training very well and will do very well. He has no problems.

"We are up against the Champions League favourites – to beat them would be a feather in our cap. This is a gala night for us, and our fans must be proud of a team who have reached the final twice in the last three years. We need their support.

"I have watched the Cardiff final several times. We have improved in terms of handling difficult spells in a game compared with last season." said Allegri

The first leg of this encounter involving Juventus and Real Madrid who faced each other in the Cardiff final just ten months ago kicks off on Tuesday in Turin.
