Barcelona kick off for the first time under new coach Ernesto Valverde when they face Juventus in a huge International Champions Cup tie on Saturday night.
They face their Champions League quarter-final opponents from last season on a level plain of preparedness given the Bianconeri opted to cancel two of their friendlies prior to their ICC debut, and will be looking to make their mark.
Valverde is expected to tinker with tactics and personnel as the Catalan faithful get a glimpse of what to expect under the former Athletic Bilbao coach, but they are expected to have enough to edge the test.
Paddy Power have therefore boosted Barcelona to triumph at the enhanced price of 30/1 (31.0) with £1 max stake for new customers, providing an opportunity for maximum profit with negligible loss if things don’t go the Catalans’ way.

Barcelona may have suffered a premature European exit at the hands of Juventus but two men key to that result - Leonardo Bonucci and Dani Alves - have now departed the Turin giants.
The duo, defensive pillars in their own right, also made crucial contributions in offence, with Bonucci adept at playing the ball out from the back and Alves constantly bombing up the wing.
It still remains to be seen how their replacements will fare, with Mattia De Sciglio not exactly convincing. As the Bianconeri rework in preparation for the new season, facing the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez - even if all three don’t necessarily feature together and for the full tie - may be a bridge too far.
The polished Barcelona attacking cog therefore can be expected to have their way against an uncertain Juventus defence, and backing Valverde’s men to get on the scoresheet on the road to victory looks to prove a winner for new Paddy Power customers who can get them at 30/1 (31.0) with £1 max stake.
