Barcelona are chasing a second miracle in as many rounds of the Champions League when they look to overturn a 3-0 deficit against Juventus. Juve will be the form side of the two, but Barca rarely lose in the Nou Camp, and scored six in the last round to overturn a 4-0 aggregate shortfall to Paris Saint-Germain.

"We are the same team and we can repeat that", said Neymar, who led Barcelona with two goals and two assists in the victory over PSG last month.

After an explosive and thrilling games on Tuesday night, April 18, when holders Real Madrid qualification to the semi-finals of the 2017 Champions League after defeating Bayern Munich, action resumes as Barcelona hope for another epic comeback against Juventus, while Monaco will be at home against Dortmund. "And when we relax a little bit, we have to start attacking again". That's when Neymar came alive, scoring twice and assisting Sergi Roberto's stoppage time goal to sent the Nou Camp into ruptures, sealing one of the all time great European comebacks.

"It was a very hard result to come back from although we tried until the end. I wish them the best and I think they could win the trophy", Barca defender Gerard Pique told reporters.

This needs to be condemned as Lieutenant General Panag rightly did. "This is not a black and white case". It is a true representation of the occupation and the humiliation it inflicts on the Kashmiri people.

The odds are very appealing for a Barcelona win tonight at 1.53 for the Blaugrana and 6.00 for Juventus. bet365 Sports is offering premium odds if Barcelona can advance at 6.00, whereas a Juventus semifinal berth is worth 1.12. We're going to take a punt on the 3-1 correct score, the same scoreline Barca beat Juve by in the 2015 final.

Luis Enrique said they should stay until the end this time, with the team planning to fight until the final whistle to turn the game around. Barcelona need to win 3-0 just to take it to extra time, whilst the away goals rule means that a single Juventus goal would put Barcelona in a position where they would need to score five to go through.

"This is similar to the PSG match but in theory we need to score fewer goals". The Barca manager says that his side will have no choice but to attack for 90 minutes, and he believes that will allow Juventus to get forward with a sucker punch of their own.
