FC Barcelona - Juventus UEFA Champions League 12-09-2017

0 التعليقات
Barcelona vs Juventus 
Competition: UEFA Champions League

FC Barcelona team still has a perfect score in La Liga and after three rounds it is the leading team in the table. They won all the three league matches and still haven't conceded a single goal. On the other hand Barcelona scored 09 goals, out of which 05 against city rival Espanyol on Saturday. Player Leonnel Messi is definitely in good shape as he scored both goals in victory over Deportivo Alaves 2-0 and he had a hat-trick against Espanyol.
Luis Suarez has fully recovered from his injury and he scored too, just as Pique although he commands the defence. The Catalans have definitely forgotten two painful defeats by  their old opponent, Real Madrid in the Super Cup, and now, beaming with self-confidence, can hardly wait to meet again their old rival and revenge for elimination last year. Dembele had his start after he came off the bench, and now he can easily be a starter.
Juventus, on the other side, also lost in the Super Cup at the beginning of the season, although only one match was played against Lazio in Rome. However, the team started the new season without a single mistake and won all 03 league matches. In fact, Juventus is more efficient the Catalans for one goal but it is interesting that otherwise very tough defence has already conceded two goals in the league and three in the Super Cup match. Everything went smoothly for the Italian team in home matches against Cagliari and Chievo which they sent home with 3-0 but Juventus was losing to Genoa 2-0 after just 7 minutes of match but they managed to turn the result up-side down by the end of match for the final 4-2.
Coach, Allegri, combines a bit the team although he is somewhat restricted by the  injures like it is the case with Chiellini and Marchisio, who will not play against the Catalans. Player, Barzagli, should be in the team, who hadn’t been a starter in first three rounds. Some players got rest against Chievo like: Buffon and Dybala, who came off the bench later on but nevertheless managed to score a goal and for the time being he is the first scorer in Juventus. Midfielder, Cuadrado, is not eligible to play this match because he is under suspension.
