UEFA Champions League: Juventus vs FC Barcelona: Team News, Match Preview

FC Barcelona will want to come back to winning ways tomorrow and draw one stage nearer to the semi-finals of the 2017 UEFA Champions League, as they go to Turin to go up against Serie A pioneers, Juventus. For the Blaugrana, this speaks to their first match in mainland rivalry since their staggering rebound against Paris Saint-Germain and keeping in mind that a rehash of that inconceivable outcome is for all intents and purposes unimaginable, Barça can seek that triumph for motivation as they face one of the hardest trial of their season up until this point.

Juventus are the pioneers of Serie An, as well as they are on course to assert their 6th progressive group title and with such a considerable lead in residential rivalry, there is a genuine expectation in Turin that this side can be the one to go above and beyond than they did in 2015 and bring home the UEFA Champions League crown without precedent for more than 20 years. Under the direction of head mentor, Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus are at the end of the day one of the goliaths of the European diversion and in that regard, they are more than a match for Luis Enrique's Barcelona.

Generally speaking, Allegri has collected an impeccably adjusted squad and keeping in mind that specific star players may have left to take advantage of their prosperity at the club, Juventus all in all are more grounded than they've at any point been. In contrast with the side that achieved the last in 2015, many would contend that this Juventus is more hazardous before objective and keeping in mind that they have lost a specific je ne sais quoi that Paul Pogba conveyed to midfield, the spine of their group is maybe more grounded without him.

Positively at home, Juventus are about unparalleled; you need to think back to August 2015 to locate the last focused match in which a meeting side (Udinese) left with the win. Considering that Barcelona have lost three of their last five away apparatuses, this is the phase at which Culés might be best served by treating their desires and valuing the setting in which this match is exhibited to us.

Accomplishment in tomorrow's match is not just characterized by regardless of whether Barcelona win; rather achievement is characterized by our capacity to secure an away objective, or if nothing else regardless of whether we keep ourselves in the tie moving toward the second leg next Wednesday at the Camp Nou. On the off chance that gave the open door, I would grab at a score draw with both hands, and I'd consider taking a one-objective thrashing, gave that we secure an exceedingly critical away objective.

Perhaps this is me being excessively skeptical for a change, yet in the event that the PSG tie showed me anything, it's that we can't think little of any restriction at this phase of the opposition. In the event that Barcelona need to secure their place in the last four, they need to go out onto the field and win it. On the off chance that they need to be fruitful, it's no sufficiently longer to just turn up and be given a prize; on the off chance that we need achievement, we need to go to each and every match and take it by drive.

The end of the week's thrashing against Malaga filled in as an auspicious indication of that reality; no longer can the strong Blaugrana drift to triumph. This is a group that needs to stick around for it's chance and pick and pick the fights it needs to win. La Rosaleda obviously wasn't on that rundown, however Turin? It's an ideal opportunity to create an impression.

In the development to this match, I figured the time had come to forego the typical group news area and rather concentrate on a one of the strategic components that I think will be significant in tomorrow's match and tie overall. For a more definite take a gander at the squad news for the match, look out for Renato's anticipated line-ups.

Barcelona past versus Barcelona introduce

This tie will be won and lost on one side of the field; Barcelona's left, and Juventus' privilege. Obviously, I'm discussing the profoundly expected fight between Dani Alves and Neymar, or as I've named it above, Barcelona past versus Barcelona display. In the most reductive shape, this means the conflict between a symbol of Barcelona's past against a present whiz; dive somewhat more profound be that as it may and this rather speaks to Barcelona's advancement under Luis Enrique.

To really get a handle on the extent of this conflict, we should first think back to the Guardiola period and tiki-taka, a time characterized by the enchanted blend of Xavi and Andres Iniesta in the Barcelona midfield. It was this organization that filled in as the motor room and the brains behind Guardiola's prosperity at the club and as Guardiola's residency found some conclusion, his successors were left with an undeniably inescapable issue to manage.

What happens to tiki-taka and to FC Barcelona when Xavi starts to decrease and eventually leaves the club?

Xavi Hernandez was an once-in-an era ability, and normally, the club have been not able locate a genuine like-for-like substitution. While a few chiefs battled with this reality and eventually lost their occupations subsequently, Luis Enrique entered in 2014 and tested the club to develop and adjust. A devastating thrashing to Real Madrid in his first El Clasico with Xavi in the beginning line-up eventually filled in as a watershed minute for Lucho as a mentor.

There could be no deferring the inescapable; the club expected to proceed onward and into what's to come. While it required investment to move to the new time, the presentation of Ivan Rakitic into Barcelona's beginning XI eventually formed their season and drive the Blaugrana forward to achievement. The Croatian midfielder couldn't fill the part that Xavi cleared, yet he was never expected to in any case.

Rather, Rakitic included industry, roughness and a specific dynamism to the Blaugrana midfield. The club didn't require another conductor, it basically required the group to metaphorically get a move on. As opposed to Xavi offering himself as the essential choice to bring the ball out of barrier and eventually fill in as the beginning stage for the larger part of every one of Barcelona's assaults, we had Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic all expanding their separate workload with one noteworthy supporter; Dani Alves.

As Barcelona transitioned into another time, they did as such without Xavi and the nearest thing they had to a trade for him in their strategic plan was not another midfielder; it was the Brazilian full-back. Thinking back to the 2014-15 Champions League battle, the player averaging the most goes in the squad was Alves as the Brazilian expected the part of go-to person in the Barcelona framework.

In many regards, the decision was self-evident; Alves presumably wasn't as snappy as he once might have been, yet strategically he stayed a standout amongst the most smart players on the field. From a guarded outlook, he knew precisely where to be and what to do in a huge number of circumstances and in a hostile situation, Alves flourished. His association with Lionel Messi was the stuff of dreams, and with Xavi out of the line-up, it was Alves who filled in as the sheltered alternative and seemingly the most basic piece of the group as the connection amongst guard and assault.

Obviously, the advancement has proceeded as Alves was never going to be much else besides a stop-hole answer for the more extensive issue close by. As his agreement terminated this past summer, Alves proceeded onward to Turin, leaving a comparative void in the Barcelona line-up. Sergi Roberto has performed outstandingly at appropriate back, yet as the season has advanced, Luis Enrique has moved further far from the universal 4-3-3, realizing that in Sergi Roberto and Ivan Rakitic, rather than Dani Alves and Xavi Hernandez, he no longer has the work force to work the framework as viably.

Recall prior in the season, and the reactions exacted against Enrique. The most widely recognized was that his group essentially didn't have a midfield – a to some degree substantial contention, regardless of the possibility that it was displayed inaccurately. The issue was never the midfield, it was that this present midfield and this present framework could no longer play out the part that Barcelona's past midfield performed; or all the more briefly, there was nobody going up against the obligations that Xavi accepted to fill in as the extension amongst guard and assault.

With Andres Iniesta sidelined by harm, the issue was highlighted; and yes, it is substantial to reprimand any semblance of Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez for not assuming on that liability, but rather whoever said that the part must be performed by a midfielder at any rate?

Dani Alves was the pioneer, exhibiting that you could fill in as the scaffold amongst resistance and assault without physically arranging in the focal point of the recreation center. Lionel Messi too has shown the capacity to play out this part, however in doing as such, he would obviously burglarize the group of its essential assaulting danger. The group was never going to get another Xavi, however it could get another Dani Alves – and keeping in mind that Enrique may have been off-base about Sergi Roberto filling that void, he has found an option: Neymar Jr.

Working on the left-hand side of a 3-4-3, Neymar does not have a wing-back behind him. Ostensibly in Barcelona's most grounded line-up, Andres Iniesta works as the largest midfield player on the left, however the occupation of ravaging here and there the flank is saved exclusively for the Brazilian and it's a part he performs to extraordinary impact. The way to the achievement of Enrique's 3-4-3 could be the development of Samuel Umtiti, or the resurrection of Javier Mascherano – yet more explicitly it has been the crowning ordinance of Neymar as not only a player for tomorrow, but rather a player for appropriate here, at this moment.

There was no preferred case over the 6-1 devastation of Paris Saint-Germain in the past round; Neymar snatched that diversion by the scruff of the neck and willed Barcelona to triumph. What's more, how could he accomplish that? He didn't simply request the ball, he requested it. Perhaps he wasn't playing the same number of goes as Xavi or Dani Alves, however Neymar touched the ball more than some other Barcelona player that night and he ran the show.

As we approach a period in which Andres Iniesta will have the capacity to play less and less diversions, and as we watch Lionel Messi get ready to turn 30, what's to come
