Barcelona vs Juventus 13/9/2017
Pick yourself up after you fall. That’s the case for Barcelona, who face Juventus in an instant rematch of their Champions League quarter-final showdown last season. Juventus got the better of the Catalan giants that time, dishing a 3-0 aggregate victory. Both teams have started with three wins out of three in their domestic campaign, Barcelona showing that they are starting to settle under Ernesto Valverde’s tactics. Lionel Messi is doing the usual business, scoring five goals in his last two matches, including a hat-trick in Saturday’s 5-0 demolition of Espanyol. Both teams are tired in their nine encounters overall – that’s three wins, three draws and three losses. Juventus are at full strength except Juan Cuadrado, who serves a one-match ban for his dubious foul on Sergio Ramos in the final last term.
