Juventus defeated Barcelona to the tune of 3-0 in the first leg of this Champions League last-eight tie in Turin last week and as such enjoy a huge advantage over the home side tonight. The Italians dominated throughout and were very good value for their victory, even if the scoreline was a little flattering.
The outcome of this win is that Juve are now just 1/6 to qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament and this price is even a little on the large side given that the visitors would need to lose by four goals tonight in order for Barcelona to knock them out of contention. We don’t expect this to happen.
OK so the Catalans overcame a larger deficit by dumping PSG out of the competition after losing 4-0 in the French capital, however a repeat of this fight-back is extremely unlikely against an excellent Juventus outfit.
Indeed should Barcelona fail to find the net early on in tonight’s match, then they may start to panic and things could become tricky for Luis Enriques’ side. The Catalans have demonstrated that they aren’t the best at chasing games and it could be a case that they don’t even manage to win in front of an expectant home support.
Juventus will invite pressure from the home side and look to mount a counter-attack, a tactic which has worked wonders for the side numerous times in both domestic and European competition. This should enable them to overcome anything which Barcelona throws at them and it should produce a thrilling end-to-end encounter.
