With a host of talented forward players on display at the Camp Nou, we take a look at the men most likely to get themselves on the scoresheet

The headlines proclaimed Paulo Dybala as "the new Messi" after his brace in the first leg of this tie, although the player himself was quick to distance himself from comparisons to his legendary compatriot.

Nevertheless, the two sweetly struck goals from Dybala were faintly reminiscent of Lionel Messi, particularly the second, and without doubt the Juve forward played a key role in his side's 3-0 win.

The Italian giants know an away goal at the Camp Nou would put them in an even stronger position to make the semi-finals and Dybala is priced at 21/10 (3.10) by dabblebet to score in the Catalan capital. Messi was not the only Argentine overshadowed by the 23-year-old last week, with Gonzalo Higuain also playing second-fiddle to Dybala.

Higuain spurned a glorious chance to get on the scoresheet although he remains the shortest priced Juventus player to net at 13/10 (2.30) ahead of Mario Mandzukic who is also offered at 21/10 (3.10).

Saturday evening saw Barcelona record a 3-2 win over Real Sociedad in La Liga thanks largely to the brilliance of their No.10. Lionel Messi scored twice against the Basques and with 29 league strikes this season he is the top scorer in the Primera Liga.

He also remains the leading marksman in the Champions League this term with 11 strikes and if Barca are to have any chance of pulling off another miraculous comeback they will need him to be at his very best.

Messi is offered at 11/4 (3.75) to break the deadlock and at 4/6 (1.66) to score at anytime, behind Luis Suarez at 8/13 (1.61) with the Uruguayan available at 13/5 (3.60) to score first.

Meanwhile, Neymar - who was so influential in the comeback against PSG - is offered at a healthy looking 21/20 (2.05) to score once more, while captain Andres Iniesta can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) and Gerard Pique who is always sent forward if Barca need goals is priced at 11/2 (6.50).
