These two familiar foes meet in Catalonia once more on Tuesday evening and we have found an angle for punters to double their money in backing goals

The standout fixture from matchday one of the Champions League sees these two European giants renew their recent rivalry.

While Barca overcame Juve 3-0 in the final of the competition back in 2015, the Italians exacted some revenge last season by knocking the Blaugrana out in the quarter finals by the same scoreline on aggregate, and this fixture has proved a fascinating match up in recent years.

It is interesting to note that both sides have begun their respective domestic seasons in identical fashion by losing the Super Cup and winning their first three league games; this weekend saw the Catalans rack up an impressive 5-0 win over local rivals Espanyol helped by a Lionel Messi hat-trick, while Juve overcame Chievo 3-0 with Paulo Dybala scoring for the third successive league game.


The sides therefore are evenly matched ahead of Tuesday's clash at the Camp Nou, where dabblebet offer Barca 5/6 (1.83) while the vistors can be backed at 16/5 (4.20) and the draw is priced at 13/5 (3.60).

Last season Juve managed to keep a clean sheet in both legs of their quarter final clash with Barca, and they are priced at 15/4 (4.75) to do so once. However it has been five years since Barca failed to score in a home group game in this tournament, and with Lionel Messi in sensational form they will fancy their chances of netting at the Camp Nou.

If the two sides look well matched then there should be some interest in the price offered for a draw, while the odds of 13/2 (7.50) for a 1-1 result look tempting for a small value bet.

Yet we will take the price of evens (2.00) for 2-3 goals to be scored in the game, which pays out with a number of different scorelines, and while we expect there to be goals at the Camp Nou, only one of the five Champions League meetings between these two has seen more than three strikes.
