Barcelona vs Juventus 12 September 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

Barcelona predicted line-up v Juventus

The veteran ran the usually solid Italian champions ragged throughout the game and capped the display with a pinpoint pass to Messi for the Argentine's second goal, Barca's third, earning him a warm reception when he was substituted late on.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri took it one step further, backing Dybala to one day prove himself equal to the likes of Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

Valverde has suffered plenty at the hands of Messi in his coaching career at Espanyol, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao before being given the reigns at the Camp Nou.

Moreover, Messi is yet to sign an extension to his contract, which is due to expire in June, despite Bartomeu's insistence that an agreement in principle has been reached with the player. Antonio Conte and boys did not want to stop and made a decision to show the message to all other teams what are they going to experience when they come to Stamford Bridge. Dybala sent his effort well over from just inside the area before Messi curled an effort against the post after finding space at the top of the box.

"We even gave him more responsibility with the number 10, a shirt that holds a great deal of importance in the tradition of Juventus".

Whilst Barcelona were caught out by the loss of Neymar, they're lucky enough to have the world's best ever player in their ranks.

"I'm happy with my performance, the Champions League is different from the Copa Libertadores, there is more pace and better technique".

Hurricane Irma forces Miami woman to deliver her own baby

Barcelona Predicted lineups: Ter Stegen; Alba, Umtiti, Pique, Semedo; Rakitic, Iniesta, Busquets; Dembele, Messi, L. Suarez.

Buffon didn't have a serious save to make until the 20th minute, but the veteran was alert when he was finally forced into action, tipping over Luis Suarez's powerful first-time drive after a Messi free kick had hit the wall.

Things certainly worked well at the weekend. Only Neymar with nine managed more.

As the Champions League opened with a series of one-sided games, Jose Mourinho was blunt.

Yet, having lost in the final in two of the last three seasons to Barca and Real Madrid, Allegri insisted the Spanish giants remain favourites to win the competition again.

Lionel Messi has never scored past Gianluigi Buffon and it's a record the 39-year-old goalkeeper is eager to maintain. Paulo Dybala scored a brace in that first leg, and "La Joya" has been in fine form already this season.

He will test a Barcelona defence that is yet to concede in La Liga but that was taken apart by Real Madrid in the season's Super Cup curtain raiser. But with today's game taking place at the Nou Camp, this one really could go either way.
