In the round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona had miraculously and with the help of the trio of referees repaid the mortgage of 0: 4 with a 6: 1 in the second leg. The Catalans lost 3-0 to Juventus in Turin, so the starting position for the revenge was one goal better.

It was evident from the start that Barça were aiming for a second miracle. Although the Clasico against Real Madrid is scheduled for the weekend, coach Luis Enrique let the best formation appear, including the famous attack series Messi / Suarez / Neymar. Barcelona had plenty of chances and half-chances, but Juventus allowed less than PSG in the last round.

The Turin team had a chance, especially from the right, to make everything clear with an away goal. Juan Cuadrado alone failed twice at the beginning of the second half. The Turinese owed their A to Z concentrated performance perhaps precisely to the fate of Paris Saint-Germain. It must have been a warning to them. In any case, Barcelona's players bit their teeth at the Italians who were playing without Stephan Lichtsteiner.

Messi more efficient than Ronaldo

The production of the world's best footballers in the Champions League is phenomenal. Ronaldo, who scored 100 goals with the triplet in Real Madrid's 4-2 win in the quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich, has extended the lead over Messi, who was goalless against Juventus, but Messi is the more efficient of the two superstars . The Argentine scored his 94 goals in 115 games, which results in a rate of 0.817 goals per game. Ronaldos scored 0.729 goals per match.
