Certainly, after Barcelona were dealt the huge blow of losing 2-0 to Malaga at the weekend and possibly see their La Liga title ambitions fade, Juventus are at risk of facing the inevitable reaction as the Spanish champions set out to issue a statement.
The Champions League has surfaced as a potential target to ensure Luis Enrique finishes his last season as Barcelona boss on a high, and the Catalans are in the quarter-finals for the 10th season in a row after masterminding the greatest comeback in the history of the competition with their 6-5 aggregate win in the round of 16 against PSG.
Spearheaded by Lionel Messi - who took his Champions League goal tally to 11 strikes in the 6-1 epic against Les Parisiens at Camp Nou - and Neymar, who tops the tournament’s assist charts with eight, victory against Juventus is certainly not out of Barcelona’s reach. While the Bianconeri are unlikely to capitulate in PSG-esque fashion, the sheer match-winning quality available to the visitors cannot be overlooked.
Indeed, Barcelona are the top scorers in this season’s Champions League with 26 goals in eight games. Such is the vast variety available to them to find the back of the net that nine of those strikes have come from set-pieces, also the highest tally in this season’s competition.
Ready to go all out for European club football’s greatest prize as a means to salvage their season, Barcelona are certainly capable of leaving Italy with a win - and unmissable at the odds of 36/1 (37.0) for new Betfair customers.
