Cape Town - Paulo Dybala feels Juventus are on par with Europe's elite clubs and will challenge for UEFA Champions League glory this season.

Juventus last won the Champions League in the 1995/96 season and had to rebuild their reputation following the Calciopoli match fixing scandal, where they were stripped of two league title and demoted to the Serie B in 2006.

Nonetheless, they've reaffirmed their dominance on Italian football once again as they remain on course for a sixth successive Scudetto.

The Bianconeri also have one foot in the quarter-final stage of the Champions League as they hold a 2-0 advantage over FC Porto going into the second-leg at the Juventus Stadium on Tuesday.

"Since the Champions League started we've been at the same level as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich," he told reporters ahead of the Porto game.

"If we get through, we'll also be on the same level now. Some of my team-mates have already won the trophy and I'd like to be decisive in a Champions League game."

Kick off is at 21:45.
