Barcelona face a mountainous task in their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Juventus at Camp Nou on 19 April.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2.


Lionel Messi scored twice as Barcelona scraped past Real Sociedad 3-2 at Camp Nou at the weekend and kept alive hopes of catching Real Madrid in the La Liga title race. The Catalan giants fell to a 3-0 defeat in the first leg against Juventus last week and face a tall order to qualify for the semi-finals. However, they successfully overturned a 4-0 first-leg deficit in the round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain.

Arda Turan, Javier Mascherano and Jeremy Mathieu are all injury doubts for the hosts, while Rafinha (knee) is definitely out.

Juventus took a step closer to the Serie A title with a 2-0 win at Pescara on 15 April, with Gonzalo Higuain scoring both goals. The Italian champions have won all their away fixtures in this season's Champions League and have conceded only once on their travels.

Massimiliano Allegri has no fresh injury concerns.

What managers say

Luis Enrique: "This is a bit similar to the PSG match but in theory we need to score fewer goals – instead of four, just three to square things. But I think Juve will have their chances, so our objective is to score five. If we score the first goal early, the Camp Nou atmosphere will help conjure a second and third, that'll take care of itself. Right now we've nothing to lose. There's only one option: attack, attack, attack." [via]

Massimiliano Allegri: "We have to be clever in choosing when to attack, when to defend. I guess Barcelona haven't changed much in a week – they are full of potential, something we knew in Turin. We need to be smart. We need to be clear-minded, technical and not think of the scoreline. We will go out to try and win again." [via]
