“We know that Dybala is a very talented player who can make the difference,” Robben said at a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s first leg in Turin.

“We will make sure we are well prepared for him. But he is not the only player who has been in good form. It is all about the team performance.”

Robben is also looking forward to a reunion with his former Bayern team-mate Mario Mandzukic, left Bavaria in 2014.

“I think it will be a very special game for Mandzukic,” he added.

“We are looking forward to meeting him again. He was part of the team that won the treble.

“He will give his all to help Juventus to a good result, but we know him well.”
