|Friendship will be put to one side when Napoli head to Juventus on Saturday night, but Paulo Dybala insists he will happily leave Capocannoniere honours to compatriot Gonzalo Higuain if the Bianconeri clinch the Scudetto at the end of the season.

Dybala was relegated to the bench for several of Juve’s opening matches this season, but he believes Massimiliano Allegri was right to do so as he needed to adapt to his new surroundings.
“He has been very important for me,” he stated. “He knew that I needed time to settle in, as it isn’t easy to move from Palermo to Juventus.
