Barcelona vs Juventus UEFA Champions League

20 April 2017, 06:50 | Charlene Valdez

Barcelona missed the chance to equal a Champions League record when they crashed out of the competition at the hands of Juventus.

"We should have been calmer and sharper when spreading their play, but it's not easy to do that here, as Barcelona are a completely different team at home". If everything goes well, there will be another comeback. Match begins at 19:45 GMT.

They can't, can they?

"Those who experienced the night against PSG at Camp Nou will have another chance to enjoy a historic evening". Our goal is to score five goals. Rule nothing out, but this one would be even greater.

Global viewers can see their options here.

Juventus will be mindful of Barcelona who overturned a 4-0 first leg deficit to progress to the quarter-finals beating Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 in the return leg at Nou Camp.


Incredibly, in 147 games in Europe, Buffon has only conceded four goals or more on two occasions. It's now the longest run in the competition and two short of the record held by Bayern Munich (16).

"If we score the first goal, the second will be scored by Camp Nou and the third will come by itself", he said in a news conference on Tuesday.

Juventus put on a masterclass of defensive football to reach the Champions League semifinals on Wednesday, frustrating Lionel Messi and earning a 0-0 draw against a Barcelona side hoping for another miraculous comeback.

The only miracle seen in Barcelona this time was Juventus not getting a late goal, with the Spanish side barely having the legs to recover when defending.

Paulo Dybala overcomes an injury scare to start for Juventus in tonight's Champions League quarter-final decider against Barcelona. In that period, no other Italian club has reached the Last 8 of the competition.

Luis Enrique reverted to Barca's tried-and-tested 4-3-3 system, with Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba coming into the side, and the left-back had the hosts' first opportunity of note when, on the stretch, he diverted Messi's precise pass wide.
