The derby match of the Champions League group stage 2nd round is going to take place between Juventus and Barcelona. Both teams want to get back on the winning track after failing to win last weekend.
Match Preview & Team News
The home side cannot be happy with its start in the new Serie A campaign as Juventus booked only two wins in the first five rounds. One of them was awarded to the hosts after Napoli refused to play due to several infected players in their squad. The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo affected the team’s performances as they didn’t manage to beat Crotone and Verona. Juve is three points behind Milan, but their rivals can increase the advantage with a potential win against Roma. After a couple of years, we finally have serious contenders that can challenge the hosts for the title, and an exciting Serie A campaign is ahead of us. Andrea Pirlo’s side opened the Champions League group stage with an away win over Dynamo Kyiv, and this is going to be their toughest challenge so far in the season.
Barcelona has another challenging match after losing to Real Madrid at Camp Nou last weekend. The visitors missed the chance to catch up with their fierce rivals in the La Liga table, and they are now six points behind Los Blancos. Leo Messi and the lads tied two defeats, while they didn’t celebrate three times in a row in the domestic championship. Although they scored five times against Ferencvaros in the Champions League group stage’s opening game, Ronald Koeman’s side has trouble finding the back of the oppositions’ net lately. Antoine Griezmann is severely criticized recently, and he needs to step up and show his class.
