Barcelona looked very much dead and buried following their 4-0 hammering to Paris Saint Germain in the French capital in the Champions League round of 16, however the manner in which they bounced back to win 6-5 on aggregate was hugely impressive to say the least and many expect them to perform a similar fight-back when they face Juventus at the Nou Camp on Wednesday evening.
The Catalans trail the ‘Old Lady’ of Italian football to the tune of 3-0 from the first leg in Turin and whilst it is unlikely that the hosts can mount a comeback in the same fashion as they achieved against PSG, we believe that they can nevertheless give the visitors a scare by grabbing a win in front of an expectant home support.
Juventus are undoubtedly back amongst the European elite and the manner in which they disposed of Barcelona in the first leg was a surprise to many. They will pose the home side many problems on Wednesday evening but Barcelona remain a force to be reckoned with and having despatched PSG to the tune of 6-1 in their last Champions League outing, we firmly believe that they can win against the Serie A leaders on Wednesday.
Whether or not they can claw their way back from three goals down remains to be seen but either way a home win looks very much the order of the day.
