Match status: 2020/21 Champions League - Group Stage
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin)
Plagued by numerous off-the-field issues prior to the campaign, Barcelona weren’t expected to enjoy any successes this season. And so far, they have been horrendous, picking up a measly seven points from their opening five La Liga fixtures.

We haven’t seen the Blaugrana begin a season this badly in over two decades. Well, the handwriting had been on the wall even before the campaign began! Now returning to European commitments this week, Barcelona will need a top-drawer performance to see off Juventus here.

Juventus vs Barcelona Team News

Struggling to keep their wits about them, Juventus’ start to the Serie A campaign has been a little poor. Currently fifth on the standings, the Bianconeri have only managed a measly nine points from their opening five league games.

However, fans will not feel too disheartened by this slow start given their squad has been ravaged by injury and fitness concerns so far. In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo has been unavailable since the last international break, having contracted the coronavirus.

The Portuguese international was expected to be in the mix for this European fixture against Barcelona, but will be left out after testing positive to the virus for the second time. Without the five-time Balon d’Or winner, Pirlo will call on Morata to lead the line.

Juventus’ recent form has been worrying, failing to deliver victories on a regular basis. They were made to come from a goal behind to salvage a point against Hellas Verona on the last matchday. Kulusevski’s brilliant 77th-effort ensured the Old Lady escaped defeat late on.

They opened their Champions League account with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv. They will need much more to overpower this strong Barcelona side on Wednesday. Enduring a similarly frustrating domestic campaign as this week’s foe, Barca are floundering in the La Liga.

Placed in the bottom-tier of the standings, results at the Nou Camp have to improve sooner rather than later. Lionel Messi is yet to rediscover his magic touch, and hasn’t scored a single goal from open play this term. Antoine Griezmann is also struggling to hit his high marks.

Ansu Fati the only bright spark for the Blaugrana, Ronald Koeman will be hoping the young Spanish international delivers the goods in this fixture. Barcelona’s previous CL fixture saw them stroll to a 5-1 win over Ferencvaros. They will hope for more of the same against the Bianconeri.

Injured or Suspended Players

Juventus: Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro, Cristiano Ronaldo and Giorgio Chiellini.

Barcelona: Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Samuel Umtiti, Matheus Fernandes and Philippe Coutinho.

Juventus vs Barcelona Predictions

These two sides are not in the best shape at the moment. Their league form has been horrific, with key players either unavailable or yet to find their footing. This is likely to be a game bereft of goals. As such, expect no more than two goals between both teams at fulltime.
