Juventus cling to second spot after draw with Barcelona

23 Novembre, 2017, 00:16 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Barca official Guillermo Amor explained pre-match that Messi was simply being rested before the weekend clash with LaLiga's second-placed side Valencia, and his absence did little to upset Barca's rhythm as they controlled the game for long spells in Turin, albeit without troubling Gianluigi Buffon too often. "Then we will see if we go into the market or not depending on our situation and the possibilities that we have [to bolster the squad]", the Barcelona boss said.

Dybala has made a strong start to the new season, scoring 14 goals in 18 games in all competitions, but the forward is not fazed by comparisons to compatriot Lionel Messi. "They lost the two finals but they reached them and that was a success", he said.

Massimiliano Allegri has to pick between Benedikt Höwedes, Medhi Benatia, Andrea Barzagli and Daniele Rugani to start for the Bianconeri on Wednesday. They will inevitably leave some gaps at the back, which will play in Barcelona's favour.

"Messi is the only player in the world who knows how to turn and pass the ball where nobody else can". Both, Barca and La Liga Presidents have confirmed the renewal. In truth it was hard to discern whether both sides' defences were performing at the top of their game, or whether the respective star studded forward lines were misfiring in this game.

But, despite benching Messi, Barcelona did enough to avoid a repeat of that fiasco.

One is the face of the Argentina football team and the other one, supposedly, is his heir in the making.

Ultimately this was a premeditated, disciplined defensive performance from Barcelona, which is not a style that is often associated with the Catalan club. Barcelona lead Group D by three points with two rounds to go, and Ernesto Valverde's side need only a draw to advance as group winners.Messi scored two goals to help Barcelona to a comfortable 3-0 win over Juventus, last season's finalists, at the Nou Camp in September.
