Goals At Both Ends On The Agenda As Barcelona host Juventus In The Champions League

Wednesday 19th April 2017, 7.45pm - Barcelona v Juventus (Nou Camp)

What an occasion we can look forward to on Wednesday night as Barcelona go in search of yet another famous comeback, this time up against Juventus. The Italian Giants go into this Champions League Quarter-Final 2nd Leg with a 3-0 advantage but they will be wary of one of the most potent attacks of all time.

  • Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 12 matches at home against Italian teams - W9 D3
  • Barcelona have played four away games in the Champions League this season, winning all four and only conceding one goal

They Can't Do It Again, Can They?

We all remember the famous Barcelona comeback against PSG in the last round as they overturned a four goal deficit, and they will need something similar here if they are to keep their Champions League dreams alive. In fact, you could argue that coming back from a 3-0 1st leg defeat against Juventus is an even bigger ask, given the quality the Turin giants possess.

Barca did have their chances in Italy last week but in truth they were out played by a superior team, and it is a monumental ask for them to reach yet another semi-final.

Juventus had the luxury of resting their entire first choice defence in Serie A at the weekend with Max Allegri expecting his experienced back-line to come under plenty of pressure. The likes of Buffon, Chiellini and Bonucci were all able to put their feet up before they arrive in Spain to face the famed MSN.

Barcelona scraped past Real Sociedad in La Liga and they are of course a very different animal at home which should give them some sort of chance. The Catalan giants are 8/15 with Bet365 to win the 2nd leg in 90mins, whilst the Juventus win is a ridiculously big 11/2 with Betfair.

Expect Barcelona To Go For The Jugular

Barcelona did the unthinkable against PSG but this will be much tougher for them against perhaps the best defensive team in Europe. Juve have experience and quality in their back-line, and scoring three or four against the Old Lady of Italy has proven nigh on impossible.

Having said that, Barca have no choice but to go for the jugular in a bid to keep their season alive, and that should mean we see a decent game of football. With Messi, Suarez and Neymar in their team, it is always easy to see Barcelona scoring plenty, and as Juve showed last week, they aren't half bad in attack either.

Paulo Dybala was the star of the show in the 1st leg with two brilliant goals and he, along with Gonzalo Higuain, are a lethal partnership in their own right. They will relish the chance to break quickly against a Barcelona defence that has proven particularly shaky this season.

With all of that in mind, it does mean the goal markets are the way to go in this game from a punting point of view. BTTS looks a no brainer at 4/7 with Paddy Power, but this is a theme we are happy to take even further.

All four of Barcelona's home games in the Champions League this season have produced over 3.5 goals, and with so much on the line on Wednesday night, backing that outcome once again looks a fair old punt at 11/10 with Paddy Power. Juventus will qualify for the semi-finals, and would be my pick for the overall crown, but don't expect Barcelona to go down quietly...
