Barcelona will face Juventus in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final. This game will decide Barca fate in the champions league this season. The live telecast of the match will be available on Ten 1 in India while online fans can go to SonyLiv.com for free live streaming of Barcelona vs Juventus match. Messi and co will have a daunting task to overcome the defeat from the first leg.
In the first leg, Juventus beat Barcelona by 3-0. They almost dominated Barcelona in the match and did not give them any chance to score the goal. But, now a huge challenge awaits Juventus as they will Barcelona in their own backyard and as everybody knows that Barcelona is very hard to beat in their own backyards.
Juventus will also look to take the revenge of the loss against Barcelona in the Champions league final. Barcelona will have to stop Juventus from scoring as then they will have the away goal advantage. Another thing that will be in the favour of Juventus is that they managed to keep the clean sheet in the first leg which means that Barcelona has no away goal in this fixture.
Juventus are certainly favourite to win the match and move to the next round but certainly, they will not take Barca lightly as they know the quality of players that Barca has. In the first leg, they did not give any chance to Barcelona attack line to have any significant shot in the match. In this match also they would try to keep the same strategy and focus on counter attack. They will have the advantage that Barcelona is suffering from a poor run of form as they also lost against Malaga in the La Liga. They could try to use this to their advantage and put more pressure on Barcelona goal.
Barcelona fans would be expecting some kind of the miracle this time also. They would be hoping that Messi, Suarez will come to the party and take Barcelona in the semifinal. It has been rumoured that Messi has been preparing for this match very hard and is eager to perform well. Barcelona will depend heavily on their attack line to give them the goals that they need.
It would be a shocker if Barcelona goes on to win this match and fixture also as they have done it against PSG in the quarterfinals. They were 4-0 down against PSG in the first leg but came back strongly to win the second leg by 6-1. But, they would have to remember that Juventus have much stronger defence lineup and it would not be easy to net 3 goal against them.
