UCL: Barcelona expect 'intense game' against Juventus

Barcelona vs Juventus 12 September 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

I can't speak for others but i'm still feeling somewhat uninspired ahead of this seasons European campaign.

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde admits it will be difficult to bed down new signing Ousmane Dembele. Now Real Madrid look to become the first team to win three straight European Cups since Bayern Munich from 1974 to 1976.

"We're not afraid to implement punishment", he added.

Liverpool's Champions League draw makes them the British club most likely to qualify for the knockout stage, according to an analytical study.

'We didn't succeed but we still consider it a success because not everyone can play in a Champions League final.

This is the fourth time they've been grouped together in Champions League play, and the first since 2000.

Juventus knocked out Barcelona in the quarterfinal last year, ultimately advancing to the final before losing to Real Madrid.

THE Premier League's coefficient has ensured for years that the league had four representatives in Europe's elite competition.

While they have Mehdi Benatia, Benedikt Howedes and Daniele Rugani in their ranks, none of these are of the quality of Bonucci.

Juventus' visit in the Champions League today could have offered the chance of a new start and revenge for last season's quarter-final defeat by the Italian champions. Tebas also wants to dilute the concentration of wealth in the game.

Defender Gerard Pique revealed that the players knew of Neymar's intentions to leave as far back as Messi's wedding on June 30.

The fixtures are coming thick and fast at the moment. Busquets loses the ball in the 21st minute and Leo Baptistao is suddenly free to break.

Will the Spanish juggernaut Barcelona finally kick it into high gear and beat Juventus? A lot has changed since then.

Massimiliano Allegri believes Juventus must be positive at Camp Nou when they begin their Champions League campaign against familiar foes Barcelona.

Last season, their display against Juventus in Turin was abject.

Barcelona go into the match with no starters or important players being injured.

Barcelona have entered the season on good form, winning all of their first three La Liga matches.

Tottenham Hotspur are predicted to miss out to Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in Group H.

Fast forward little under two years, and this is a United squad that belongs on this stage. Iniesta's experience will be of major importance so him starting the match is a must.

Klopp will not stand for anything less than three points and a barnstorming performance.

Obviously, Messi and Suarez are untouchable up front.

Then, against Espanyol, more of the same.

Please let me convince you that when his teammates see Messi doing that, it affects them massively.

It will be the first time that the two teams will be crossing their path's in the UEFA Champions League and Barcelona will be looking to avoid any unnecessary complications in the group stage.
