Paulo Dybala: Juventus ace picks up injury in Pescara win

Paulo Dybala might have handed Barcelona a Champions League boost after limping out of Juventus' Serie A clash at Pescara on Saturday afternoon.

Dybala starred in Juve's quarter-final first-leg win over Barça on Tuesday, scoring twice as the Italians earned a 3-0 lead to take to the Camp Nou next week.

Forced off at Pescara with ankle problem

But the 23-year-old had to be taken off in the 54th minute of his side's 2-0 win over Pescara after suffering an ankle knock in a challenge with Sulley Muntari.

Despite trying to play on at the Stadio Adriatico-Giovanni Cornacchia, Dybala was unable to continue and was replaced by Stefano Sturaro.

Speaking post-match, Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri revealed that the Argentine has a sprain, but was optimistic over his chances of facing Barça.
