Barcelona managed one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history in the round of 16 against PSG, and have now been handed a tie with Juventus.
The Old Lady will now be hoping for revenge as they face Barcelona in the first leg of Champions league quarter final, after their defeat against Barcelona in the 2015 final.
Juventus are yet to lose at home in the Champions League since 2014/15, as they’ve beaten the likes of Dortmund, Real Madrid and Man City in this period, and played draw against Atletico and Bayern. Further, they’ve won an impressive 32 home league games in a row, conceding only twice in their last eight at home.
Barca have won only four of their last 10 Champions League away games, with their wins against Bate, Arsenal, Monchengladbach and Celtic, losing at Bayern, Atletico, Manchester City and PSG in that period.
Allegri's side beat Chievo 2-0 on Saturday to stay six points clear at the top of Serie A, as Gonzalo Higuain returned to goalscoring form with two goals.
Since both teams are enjoying attacking football with offensive formations, we believe the best pick possible for this game is both teams to score at (1.70) with SportyBet. There will be a goal fest with Higuain, Miralem Pjanic & Paolo Dybala set to face Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.
Barcelona defeated Juventus convincingly the last time they met, in the final of the Champions League in 2015, and another win for the Blaugrana is offered at (2.86) by SportyBet, with the draw available at (3.28).
In the already mentioned Champions League final from 2015 in Berlin, Barcelona won thanks to the goals of Rakitic, Suarez and Neymar. Those three players are backed to score anytime in this tie at (6.30), (2.35), (3.25) respectively. Barcelona have conceded ten goals in their last five away games.
Higuain has scored 27 goals for Juventus this season, with three of them coming in the Champions League. He looks the best option for our anytime goalscorer predictions here at (2.20). Lionel Messi is (2.30) in the anytime goalscorer market.
As far as the overall result goes, we think Juventus will feel confident about getting a win here.
