Barcelona vs Juventus Champions League: Barcelona beat Juventus 3-0 at the Camp Nou.
Barcelona cruised to win against Juventus as they thumped the visitors 3-0 at Camp Nou. Barcelona rode on Lionel Messi’s goal to take the lead just before the half-time whistle was blown. In the second half, the Barca team looked more in shape and they did produce the results for themselves early in second half to stretch the lead.
Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Alba, Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta, Dembele, Messi, Suarez
Juventus XI: Buffon, De Sciglio, Benatia, Barzagli, Sandro, Pjanić, Matuidi, Bentancur; Dybala, Douglas Costa, Higuain
Ernesto Valverde: “They have lost Bonucci but they remain a very strong, good team. I can see the comments of comparing squads to previous seasons are the same in every country. People look at transfers and decide if a squad is stronger or weaker, but the time to do that is at the end of the season.”
Massimiliano Allegri: “Despite losing Neymar, Barcelona are, along with Real Madrid, the strongest team in the world. To go three games against them without conceding a goal (this year) would be extraordinary. Winning the Champions League can’t be an objective, it is a dream.”
