Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has insisted that the Old Lady can still prove themselves as title contenders despite a tough start to the new campaign.
The Italian club ran away with the Serie A crown last season, but have found progress hard to come by at the start of the new campaign having lost important games to both Udinese and Roma to leave them 17th in the table.
The club's 21-year-old forward does, however, believe that his team can turn their fortunes around with a victory over Chievo this weekend.
"We are in peak condition and we're determined to show that we are capable of retaining the Scudetto this year," Dybala told the club's official TV channel.
"Chievo will make for a tough game, but we're all pumped up for it and we have got our eyes firmly set on winning the contest."
Dybala made the switch to Juve from Palermo this summer, after scoring 13 goals for the Eagles last season.
