Barca need five to beat Juve: Luis Enrique

When you face a side like this, with their attacking options, you think that one or two goals are always going to be scored.

"Juventus are the better team and if they can disconnect the front three as they managed to in the first leg, they have a great chance of winning the second leg". I tip my hat to Juventus.

Champions League finalists in 2015 after knocking out Real Madrid and losing to Barca in the final, they were eliminated last season after extra-time following an incredible battle with Bayern Munich.

Things have changed since Barcelona's historic comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the last round of the Champions League.

Betting on La Liga? Therefore, whatever objective Barca have set, it's incredibly hard to envisage them scoring five times against one of the world's stingiest backlines.

"We will try right until the end", he said at his pre-match press conference, quoted on www.fcbarcelona.com, ahead of Wednesday's second leg.

This is the match that will truly answer any questions people have over Juve's psychology and not just that of the players but of Allegri who lost to a Barcelona comeback before when he oversaw Milan.

In the other quarter-final tie, Monaco showed why no one will want to draw the French side in the semi-finals with a 3-1 second-leg victory sealing a 6-3 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund in the principality.

"I wouldn't go that far".

Dortmund meanwhile trail only by a single goal to Monaco but they will have to launch a comeback away from home and with the trauma of last week's attack on their team bus still fresh in the memory.

With Sergio Busquets back in the side, we expect Barcelona to play a more balanced game, controlling proceedings in a more efficient manner in a reported 3-4-3 formation.

"We created chances but little by little we realised we had a mountain to climb".

But Juve might be a different proposition altogether, having conceded only two goals in eight games in Europe.

Meanwhile, Paulo Dybala has scored four goals in as many Champions League knockout games, including a brace in the first leg against Barcelona.

Barcelona's season depends on the next five days.
