Barcelona need to do the impossible…again.
Just a few weeks after becoming the first team to complete a four-goal comeback against PSG, Barcelona face a three-goal deficit heading into Wednesday at Camp Nou.
Juventus are not the same team as Paris, and will try to stay in their defensive shape against the Barca attack. Juventus rested five players over the weekend, not including Pablo Dybala, who scored twice in the first leg last week. Dybala suffered a knock in his team’s weekend action against Pescara, but should be fine for the second leg.
Barcelona will rely on M-S-N to work their magic, but it was nowhere to be found in Italy. Chielinni and the Juventus defense bottled up Barca’s stars, as they have been doing to teams all year long. Barcelona manager Luis Enrique told reporters this week that his team’s objective is to score five goals on Wednesday, but Juventus have only conceded twice in all of Champions League play this season.
