JUVENTUS 3 FC BARCELONA 0 | CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Champions League quarter-finals tonight with JUVENTUS defeating FC BARCELONA 3 - 0 in the 1º st leg away tie. Repeat version of the away match against PSG, with Barça totally beaten & out played. Once again Barcelona  must summon heroics to overcome this significant disadvantage as Juve are in the "Box seat".

Juventus

The man of the match was DYBALA, the Juventus attacking midfielder outshone Messi & scored the first two goals (7th & 22nd min) all in magnificent fashion. In the process the player lifted his market value further tonight as the many pretenders around Europe recalculated their possible offers. The Juventus star is rumoured to be followed by Real Madrid, & even by Barça, the latter suffered his quality tonight.

FC Barcelona

The other star was Italian & Juventus goalkeeper Buffon. The veteran made one save from Iniesta that was vital while doing enough on Barça´s other occasions. Another name to mention was ex-Barça player Dani Alves which showed he still is in top shape & reminded Barça followers why they miss him this season.

Overall, Juventus was great tonight along with Chelini scoring the 3º goal in the 55th min, Higuain assisting & always dangerous while another name  Manduzkic with his roughening up stuff contributed.

For FC Barcelona, hard to pick out a name, perhaps Iniesta for trying along with Suarez. Neymar disappeared, the defence was full of holes & the midfield out of synchronization.

Can FC Barcelona turn this result around? Of course, they did it with PSG, but Juventus are more experimented defensively, more disciplined in the midfield & if Dybala has another night, well ...
