Higuain warns Juventus over brilliant Barcelona

Little over a month after producing the greatest comeback in Champions League history, Barcelona need another special turnaround as they face Juventus in the second leg of their quarter-final on Wednesday. However, for 90 minutes we can forget the form book, the daily newspapers, and live in the moment, all the while wondering...

Enrique expects the visitors will create more chances to score on Wednesday, so says Barca's approach must be to aim to score five goals. "Right now, 60 per cent for us, but we have great respect for Barcelona".

- Juventus are also the only team to have won all four of their Champions League away games this season (10 goals scored, 1 conceded), their best ever run of victories on the road in the competition.

"Mascherano's recovery is good news".

"We need to defend well and attack well".

Nothing is impossible, not with this group of players - but certainly this seems far more unlikely than the comeback against PSG did prior to kick-off on that fateful night six weeks ago. We have to create a collective insane atmosphere so our players can perform at their best. We clearly have the firepower to score and rather than focus on the overall goal, the team will undoubtedly focus on each smaller milestone. Despite missing the weekend's hard win over Real Sociedad with a calf injury, Javier Mascherano is said to be in "perfect shape" and will therefore be available for selection tomorrow. At the San Siro, Juventus have lost twice this season - so can they truly be confident of their chances as they prepare to enter the largest stadium in Europe to play against a team that has scored 83 goals in 21 competitive home matches this season? Which side will make it into the final four? "It's a weird feeling being back, this is the first chance I have had to do it", said the 33-year-old, who won the competition three times with Barca.

"(On Wednesday) we have to compete at the level needed to go through.

"I don't know whether our 3-0 lead will be enough".

Allegri said: 'We need to keep our heads and find a way to score at least once.

Barca welcome back midfielder Sergio Busquets from suspension, while Juve are hopeful Dybala will be ready after he came off in the 2-0 weekend win at Pescara with a sprained ankle.

Other than that, Allegri will be thankful that he has every other member of his squad available for the fixture as the Italians will have to be at their best against a Barcelona side that have shown they can overcome the most extreme odds.
