With Barcelona trailing Juventus by three clear goals from their first leg clash in Turin last week, can Luis Enrique’s men manage to mount a successful comeback and steer themselves into the last four of this season’s Champions League?
Some feel that they can and others are pretty doubtful, however one thing is for sure, very few gave them a chance of remaining in the competition following their 4-0 demolition by Paris Saint Germain in the French capital earlier this year. The manner of their subsequent 6-5 aggregate win over PSG was remarkable to say the very least and it would be unwise to write the Catalans off completely this week.
That said, Enrique’s side face a tough challenge and Juventus will be in no mood to surrender their relatively comfortable lead. Nevertheless Barcelona are particularly solid in front of their home fans and with their previous Champions League home game ending in a 6-1 victory, we believe that Wednesday’s hosts will dominate from the outset and an early home goal will throw this quarter-final tie wide open.
The bookies are cautiously optimistic that Barca can spring another surprise in this competition by clawing their way back into contention with most firms going 4/1 for the Catalans to qualify, however you can back Barcelona to be in the semi-finals at an astonishing 20/1 just by registering with Betfair today.
