Barcelona have an opportunity to revenge their painful loss at the hands of Juventus in last season’s Champions League quarter finals.

Thanks to a 3-0 aggregate score line, the Old Ladies were able to scale through to the semifinals at the expense of the Catalans.

A lot has changed since that time and Barcelona will be hoping to inflict some injuries on the Italians in this game.

Barcelona have lost Neymar, while the spent on Ousmane Dembele, Gerard Deulofeu, Paulinho and Nelson Semedo – they look considerably weaker than they were when they had Neymar.

However, they are currently on top form having won their last three league games, scoring 9 goals and conceding none – a statistic that will surely boost their morale ahead of this game.

Juventus lost last season’s final to Real Madrid 4-1 however prior to that heavy loss, they had built up a reputation as a solid defensive side even shutting out AS Monaco and limiting them to just 1 goal over two legs.

They have lost Leonardo Bonucci and that has affected them greatly this season.

Playing without Leonardo Bonucci  will make them very vulnerable against Barcelona’s Messi led attack.
