Welcome back, Champions League! After the horror that is the international break, the best cup competition in Europe returns tonight for Barcelona, and the Blaugrana travel to Italy for a HUGE game against Juventus. And this is one you can’t miss.
This is a really, really, big match for the Catalan giants who need a point to qualify and three to win the group with a game to spare. Juventus don’t lose at home that often, and they destroyed Barça the last time these two teams played at the Allianz Stadium.
Barça come into this match on a 17-game unbeaten streak, but it’s safe to say they haven’t really faced a great opponent to this point. Juventus tonight and Valencia on Sunday, both away from home, are great opponents that will truly test where this team is.
Thankfully Barça have Lionel Messi, and you always have a good chance to win when Messi is playing. He loves these big games, and after scoring for the first time against the legendary Gianluigi Buffon in the first meeting between them this season, Leo is more confident facing one of the greatest goalkeepers in history.
This will be both fun and nervous at the same time, but it’s a must-watch game. Please don’t miss it.
