Juventus vs Barcelona – Champions League
Tuesday 11th April 19:45, Juventus Stadium
Match Preview and Betting Tips
This for me is perhaps the tastiest of the Quarter-Finals as I’m really not sure which way its going to go. Obviously the overall favourites are the Catalonains, but a good first leg performance could set Juventus up for a Semi-Final appearance.
Both teams are going well in their domestic divisions, as expected Juventus top Serie A and look like easing to yet another title, but Barcelona missed out on a big opportunity to close the gap on Real, who drew the Madrid Derby, when they slipped to a surprise 2-0 defeat at Malaga.
Argentine striker Higuaín top scores for the host in this competition with 3 goals, but his fellow countryman Messi has smashed in a fantastic 11 goals in the Champions League this season. Former players often return to haunt their old clubs and I have a feeling that Brazilian full back Dani Alves could have a hand in a goal or two tomorrow night, perhaps even getting on the scoreboard himself as he has done twice already in the CL for Juventus.
Both sides are in decent form which makes this one hard to predict, so I’ve gone with an over 2.5 goals scored and both teams to score bet to start with, followed by Higuaín and Messi to score, and my outsider is on Dani Alves to either score or assist a goal for the hosts.

Suárez then put the favourites back in front on 68 minutes, before teammate Neymar sealed the Champions League title deep into stoppage time with a third goal.
