The big game everyone has been waiting for is here, as Juventus will be welcoming Lionel Messi led Barcelona to the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night.
In 11 Champions League meetings between these two teams, Juventus have won 3 games, while Barcelona have won 4 matches, with the remaining 4 games ending in a draw. The Old Lady scored 10 goals in those matches and the Catalan giants scored 13 goals.
Ronaldo will miss this game after testing positive for COVID-19. Juventus will also be without Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro, and Giorgio Chiellini due to injury, while Leonardo Bonucci is a doubt. Philippe Coutinho has picked muscle injury and won't play for Barcelona, while Gerard Pique is suspended.
This was meant to be the battle between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but the absence of the Portuguese is a major blow. With Barcelona's poor run of form and Pique’s suspension, the Old Lady may just edge this encounter.
