Barcelona could arguably be playing against Juventus at the worst possible time as they lost to Real Madrid 3-1 at Nou Camp just four days prior to this meeting in Turin. Now, with former El Clasico foe, Cristiano Ronaldo, potentially set to return, Lionel Messi and co. have to be back to more of their former self.
The Blaugrana are not quite in the dire straits they were upon the 8-2 drubbing of Bayern Munich, but with no notable signings and an over-reliance on Messi and a 17-year-old Ansu Fati, Barcelona are still far from competing with fellow European heavyweights.
However, with this said, Ronaldo's potential absence cuts down Juventus' attacking options significantly, just as the club drew their third Serie A game last weekend from the last four, registering a lacklustre 1-1 against Hellos Verona.
Fati and Messi could be too much for the elder defence of the Old Lady, as Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonnuci continue at the back, and Messi to score and win is priced at 13/5, whilst Fati to score and Barcelona to take three points is 7/2.
