Barcelona Vs Juventus Prediction: Expected Starting Lineups, Betting Tips, Result Prediction


After a disastrous performance in the first leg, Barcelona again have to pull a rabbit out of the hat to progress to the semifinals of the Champions League. Having fallen further back in the league, Barcelona can be out of two competitions in a week as they face Real Madrid in their next game in the Spanish League.

Barcelona Vs Juventus Prediction

Barcelona is expected to lineup in their 3-4-3 formation, about which we have discussed in a previous article. The 3-4-3 formation has not worked at all time for Barcelona, but for their midfield to control the center of the park, Enrique needs four in the middle. Juventus will lineup in their typical 4-2-3-1 formation with Higuain playing as the lone striker.

Barcelona Vs Juventus Result Prediction

Juventus are not expected to collapse like PSG did in the second leg but it won’t be easy for them at the Camp Nou. Barcelona will come out all guns blazing but they need to be careful as Juventus have some exciting attacking talent who can hurt Barca on the counter.

Result Prediction

Barcelona 3-1 Juventus

Easily the strongest team left in the Champions League apart from the Big 3, Juventus will be desperate to crown their outstanding domestic success over the past 5 seasons with the Champions League. On the other hand, this might be Enrique’s last match in the Champions league as the Barcelona manager, the Barca players will be extra fired up to give their boss a fond farewell. But for the neutral fans, Juventus are the team who can challenge the big 3. Atletico Madrid have failed twice at the last hurdle against Real Madrid, both Monaco and Dortmund are young and inexperienced, so it’s up to the Italian Champions to make this year’s Champions League exciting.
