Dybala expected to come good

Juventus' Argentinian forward Paulo Dybala will be given time to prove his class, having suffered a dip in form in recent weeks.

The 23-year-old has scored just once in his last nine games, having opened the campaign with 12 goals in his first eight appearances - including hat-tricks against both Genoa and Sassuolo.

And Juve general manager Giuseppe Marotta is confident that Dybala will come good again in the near future, as long as he is given support and shown patience by those around the Turin club.

Everyone wants extraordinary things from him, but it takes patience.

He told Domenica Sportiva: "Remember that Dybala isn't even 24 yet. We always expect extraordinary things from him, because we're used to him giving us extraordinary things.

"We need to have the patience to wait for him though. We can say with certainty that he's a great talent - to become a champion will take time.

"You become a champion when you achieve consistency of results, of play, of performance. Everyone wants extraordinary things from him, but it takes patience."

Juve currently lie in second place in Serie A, with Napoli leading the way by just a point after being held to a goalless draw at Chievo on Sunday.

Following the international break, the Bianconeri return to action on Sunday 19th November with a testing trip to Genoa to take on Sampdoria.

Juve have won all four of their previous four visits to Samp, with each of those victories coming by a one-goal margin.

They can be backed at 11/4 to win by one goal a week on Sunday, with the visitors 7/1 to triumph 1-0 in the Luigi Ferraris, while a 1-1 draw is priced at 21/10.
