Cape Town - Juventus forward Paulo Dybala wants to play Barcelona in this season's Champions League final, if the Italian side get that far.

The Serie A champions comfortably beat Porto 3-0 on aggregate to reach the last eight of Europe's premier club competition with Dybala scoring the only goal on Tuesday as his side won the second-leg 1-0 in front of their own fans.

With continental giants Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich already in the hat for the quarter-finals draw on Friday, Argentina international Dybala wants a repeat of the 2015 final which the Spanish team won 3-1 in Berlin.

Dybala told Premium Sports: "Do I want to meet Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich? I would leave Barca for the final.

"As it was two years ago, when I wasn't there. Now, all the games are difficult.

"The draw will tell us who we face. We will try and get to the end."

Meanwhile the Argentine said that he felt 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.
