Juventus v Barcelona Preview, Champions League, Quarter Finals 1st Leg, 11th April 2017

Juventus head into this game on Tuesday night having had a great season so far on the domestic front in their Serie A where they currently lead the way at the top of the league table with 77pts having secured 25 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats from their 31 matches played.

The hosts came through their last 16 fixture against FC Porto 3-0 on aggregate winning 2-0 away from home in the 1st leg, followed by a 1-0 home win in the second leg and having came through that tough looking match without having conceded a goal will obviously have all the players and fans confident that they can provide Barcelona with a very tough test in this 1st leg quarter finals match.

Barcelona head into the game having also had a very good season on their domestic front and currently occupy second place in the Primeria league table with 69pts having secured 21 wins, 6 draws and 4 defeats from their 31 matches played.

The came through their last 16 fixture against PSG with an incredible 6-5 aggregate win as despite having lost the 1st leg away from home 4-0, they managed to make champions league history in the 2nd leg by overturning that 4-0 deficit to somehow win 6-5 on agggregate having won the 2nd leg match 6-1 !

However, those celebrations will have came to a crashing halt over the weekend just gone, as they lost 2-0 away to Malaga in the Primeria league and more importantly are 3pts behind arch rivals Real Madrid who have a game in hand and it will be interesting to see how the players react to that come Tuesday night in Turin.

Juventus Team News :

Juventus will be without winger Marko Pjaca as he will miss the rest of the season after suffering knee ligament damage while on Croatia duty.

Defenders Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Dani Alves were all on the bench at the weekend and could return to the starting side.

Barcelona Team News :

Arda Turan, Aleix Vidal and Rafinha are all injured for Barcelona, while Busquets is suspended for the first leg.

Andres Iniesta, meanwhile, who started on the bench in their defeat to Malaga on Saturday is set to return to the starting line-up, while Ivan Rakitic and Gerard Pique will be available following their domestic bans.

Juventus v Barcelona Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from the Juventus Arena will become the 4th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Juventus have won 1 time overall with 0 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Barcelona have managed to secure 1 victory overall with 1 of those having came away from home and with Barcelona having beat Juventus 3-1 away from home in their last meeting, many would say that the visitors have the slight edge here.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows neither clubs with any clear advantage with both clubs having won one game each and this game on Tuesday night in Turin looks likely to be just as tight.

Juventus v Barcelona Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

A very exciting game in prospect and one that based on all the statistics covered earlier in the preview suggests either team can win the match.

However, Barcelona showed why they are the giants of football with their historic comeback win in the last leg and although they did lose on the domestic front last weekend away against Malaga, I don’t see that result having any impact to the focus of the player for this game.

Juventus are having yet another excellent season in Serie A and look on course to claim another league title, they came through their last 16 match with a comfortable 3-0 victory against FC Porto and have to be respected.

As such, I see this game being one that will be won by the quality up front and for me Barcelona have it in abundance.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Barcelona to Win as for me their strike force is substaintly better than what Juventus have available.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Barcelona legend Lionel Messi to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as he really does seem to turn up in the games that matter.
