The sensation comeback by Barcelona in their last-sixteen two-legged tie with PSG will long be considered the greatest comeback in the competition’s history. Barca were humbled to the tune of 4-0 in Paris in the first leg and were all but written-off with regard to their Champions League ambitions. Indeed they looked to be exiting the competition despite enjoying a 3-1 lead in the second leg with just a few minutes remaining.
Nevertheless two Neymar goals within two minutes of each other as well as a late Sergi Roberto goal late into stoppage time proved to be the culmination of an amazing turnaround and the Catalans lived to fight another day.
That fight returns tonight and what a battle it promises to be. Luis Enrique’s men will nevertheless be anxious to avoid a repeat of their away-leg disaster in Paris although we certainly don’t expect this to be the case this evening. That said, Barca will certainly have a battle on their hands against a Juventus side which are once again back amongst the European elite and who are closing in on a sixth successive Serie A title.
A domestic double is also on the cards for the Italian side with an appearance in the Coppa Italia final, while glory in the Champions League isn’t entirely out of the question. The reason for this is Juventus’ great form at home this season. The league leaders haven’t suffered a single defeat on home soil this term with no goals conceded in Serie A during that time and this will be of concern to Barcelona boss Enrique.
Either way, this promises to be a thrilling clash between two giants of the European game and you can enjoy a risk-free no-deposit £10 Free Bet on this match just by registering with Sky Bet today.
