Barcelona's 3-0 Champions League defeat by Juventus only served to highlight how far the Catalan giants have fallen since the heady days of Pep Guardiola, according to former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand.

It's been some week for Paulo Dybala to say the least. As well as Juventus played, with Max Allegri's careful tactical plan delivering optimum results, they were still fortunate to escape suffering at the hands of Messi's genius.

Barcelona pillar Andres Iniesta, who couldn't put away an equalizer in the first half, sounded mildly optimistic after the game, saying: "When you don't do things well you get punished".

When Barca lost 4-0 to Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 first leg, it appeared as though the great man's powers were finally waning, but Turin should annex such an idea.

Alves played for Barcelona between 2008 and 2016, winning the Champions League three times during a trophy-laden spell, and the right-back said it felt odd to be facing his old colleagues.

"As a kid I dreamed of moments like this", Dybala said in the immediate aftermath.

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has extended his contract by two years until June 2022, the Turin club said on Thursday. On top of that we go out to dinner together and we take this understanding out onto the field, too.

"Barcelona had an off game?"

Barcelona's key star, Lionel Messi did not see his wishes fulfilled. He allowed me enough time to understand and get to know this club better.

Dybala has been strongly linked with a move to Spain in recent months, and he again showed his potential with two goals in Juventus's 3-0 win over Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday night.
