"Juventus are a very strong team" — Barcelona's Valverde

Dybala struck twice in Juve's 3-0 aggregate quarter-final win over Barca last season and is set to start at the Nou Camp.

The La Liga and Serie A sides have developed a rivalry over the years, after 2015 Champions League final which Barcelona won but the Italian club taking revenge in last season's tournament in the quarterfinals stage. For both of the goals, Italy legend Buffon stood motionless to watch the ball hit the back of the net.

"We all know Messi very well". They press high and we'll need to overcome everything they throw at us.

Sergi Roberto has knee problems that will keep him out for the foreseeable future.

"German defender Höwedes, having commenced preparations with the Bianconeri later than the rest of the squad, is undergoing a personalised training regime". However, we're now in a new era as Ernesto Valverde has the team playing in a more robust & efficient way than last season.

Juventus Coach Max Allegri has lamented his side affording Lionel Messi too much space in Tuesday night's Champions League encounter.

Giorgio Chiellini, Benedikt Howedes, Sami Khedira, Claudio Marchisio and Mario Mandzukic are all injured. Roberto Lewandowski remains the fourth favourite with best odds of 10/1.

The first half was dull, apart from long attempts by Juventus' Miralem Pjanic and Mattia De Sciglio, until Messi struck just before the interval.

"He shows is in every game, that is why he is the best". It paid Dortmund 105 million euros ($124 million) in a deal that includes possible add-ons that could bring the total to 147 million euros (about $173 million).

"I think Dybala will eventually leave Juve", Raiola told RaiSport.

Messi gave the Italians nightmares from the word go, but captain Andres Iniesta was also in electric form, while record signing Ousmane Dembele had an impressive full debut, making for a party atmosphere at the Nou Camp to accompany the show put on by their relentless Argentine talisman.
