Barcelona take on the visitors Juventus at "Camp Nou" in the gameweek one of the UEFA Champions League Group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 12th.
Barcelona have finally recovered after the disastrous start of the new season and unconditional loss to Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup. The Catalans have won three starting clashes in the LaLiga with 9:0 aggregated score, having thrashed Espanyol 5:0 in the Catalan derby which took place last weekend. Barcelona's leader Lionel Messi is on fire again, having scored three goals in the recent encounter.

Juventus' results are more a less the same as the ones of their Spanish counterparts this year. "La Vecchia Signora" lost 2:3 to Lazio in the Italian Super Cup, nevertheless, the team entered the new season in the Serie A with three consecutive wins with 10:2 aggregated score. Moreover, last weekend Massimiliano Allegri's side defeated Chievo 3:0 at the home field.
Barcelona and Juventus are two favourites of the UEFA Champions League Group D. With all the respect to Olympiakos Piraeus and Sporting they are both much weaker than the duet of their Spanish-Italian rivals. The forthcoming battle is also interesting as Juventus defeated Barcelona 3:0, 0:0 in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in easy and exquisite manner early spring this year. I don't believe that there will be many goals scored in the upcoming head-to-head between these two European grands as the teams are of the same class.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
