Barcelona vs Juventus: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Barcelona will be looking to continue their excellent Champions League run when they host Juventus on Tuesday evening.
Barcelona vs Juventus: Predictions
Ronald Koeman has not enjoyed his start to life as a La Liga manager, with Barcelona currently struggling in ninth and already 12 points behind early leaders Atletico Madrid after 10 games. But the Champions League has been a completely different story.
Once again Barcelona are chasing a perfect Champions League group stage, having won their opening five games this season, including the reverse fixture. A win against Juventus on Tuesday would be just the eighth time a team have been perfect in the Champions League group stage, and Barcelona’s second occasion after 2002/03.
But Juventus go into the game still harbouring hope for top spot and a potentially more favourable knockout round draw. To do so, the Bianconeri will need to win by three goals to overtake Barcelona on head-to-head, or by two goals started at 3-1.
Like Barcelona, Juventus haven’t been great in Serie A despite being unbeaten, winning five and drawing five of their opening 10 games, giving Andrea Pirlo a tough start to his managerial career.

Barcelona vs Juventus: Match Stats
Barcelona have an excellent record against Juventus in recent meetings, winning two of the past four, while Juventus last won away to Barcelona in April 2003. But, Juventus have looked dangerous in attack in recent weeks while Barcelona’s defence has had its problems.
One man who can cause Barcelona an issue is Alvaro Morata. The former Real Madrid striker has scored six goals in five Champions League games this season, scoring in every match so far bar the reverse fixture with Barcelona.
