FIFA Incurs the Wrath of Liverpool Fans & Leaves Them Demanding Answers Amid 2018 Rankings Reveal

According to FiveThirtyEight's Soccer Power Index (SPI), Barcelona enter with a 96 percent chance of advancing beyond Group D, while Juventus have an 86 percent chance of doing so.

Lionel Messi netted twice in Barcelona's convincing 3-0 victory over Juventus that kicked off their Champions League campaign in style, while Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Chelsea also won big on Tuesday.

To make things worse for Madrid, it will have to face Real Sociedad without Karim Benzema because of a muscle injury sustained against Levante, and without veteran left back Marcelo because of red card picked up late in the game.

Super Stat: Barcelona are yet to concede in the Spanish La Liga this season!

"It isn't easy because playing against a team like Barcelona in a stadium like this is very hard".

"Leo Messi is unique, he is the best player in the history of football and he has shown that again in the Champions League", Bartomeu told Spanish TV station MEGA. But the world's greatest player broke his duck against the world's greatest keeper with a goal in the 45th minute to help propel Barcelona to a 3-0 win.

Club-record signing Ousmane Dembele made his debut during their 5-0 thumping of Espanyol on the weekend and is in line to make his first start since his €105 million move.

Champions League: Rivalry renewed between Barcelona and Juventus

The 20-year-old Dembele produced the kind of speed Barcelona wanted from him when he raced down the right flank to reach a long pass and then deliver a precise low cross for Suarez to score.

"I have suffered many times playing against Messi and now I have the luck to have him on my side".

Claudio Marchisio is making good progress on his knee injury, but the tie will come too soon for him, he'll be back on the 27 of September.

Levante was a match to forget for Zinedine Zidane.

And then there was Gareth Bale.

The Brazil forward and fellow summer signing Kylian Mbappe -- who combined are set to cost PSG in excess of £366million - were both on the scoresheet before fellow forward Edinson Cavani added a third from the penalty spot just before half-time. "They were very good in replacing Neymar". That extended Madrid's run to 71 consecutive games scoring at least once. "We're not at our optimum physical state yet as we're just starting", said Allegri.

The Parisians' victory was powered by an attacking masterclass from its trio of superstar strikers: Neymar, Mbappe, and Edinson Cavani all scored first half goals to end Celtics' hope for a result early. "We are scoring few goals given the number of chances we create". Pedro Rodrigues, David Zappacosta, Cesar Azbilicueta, Tiemoue Bokayoko, Michy Basthuayi and an own goal by Maxsim Mekvedev gave the English champions a 6-0 win.
