Lionel Messi reveals Champions League goal with message to fans — Barcelona News

Skomina to referee Barca-Juve

Messi two excellent goals - one in each half - either side of an effort from Ivan Rakitic as Barcelona ran out emphatic 3-0 winners. "This will help me a lot for the future".

"We have to leave him to grow in peace".

But the overall organisation of the team will be the same, and it may prove too much too soon for Barcelona's new attack to adjust to.

Last season saw Juventus come to defend a 3-0 lead in the quarter-finals of the competition, but this time around, although they were forced onto the back foot by Barca, they also had chances of their own with Di Scoglio forcing a fingertip save from Ter Stegen in the Barca goal, before he was called into action again to deny Pjanic.

Weakness: The Juventus defence has been significantly weakened by the departure of Leonardo Bonucci.

Allegri lamented his team's loss of concentration, insisting that the Argentine is capable of anything when he is given time on the ball.

Allegri was not too downbeat following the loss however, saying: "I don't think we're going to have a problem".

After their opening round loss to Barca, the FC panel place part of the blame on Dybala's lacklustre showing for Juventus.

European History: 2-time UEFA Champions League winners. This is another Champions League campaign, we are just at the beginning.

"We even gave him more responsibility with the number 10, a shirt that holds a great deal of importance in the tradition of Juventus". If not now, then it will be shortly.

Sporting Clube de PortugalOne to watch out for!

In the 56th minute, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner helped Barca make it 2-0, as his low cross was cleared by substitute Stefano Sturaro back to Rakitic, who fired it home. "We played against last year's finalists and it's a good feeling to start with a win".

Best Player: Bas Dost.

"Leo scored an extraordinary goal and blew the game open".

The Argentinian was a constant thorn in the side of the Old Lady and ended the game with a well-deserved brace. In fact, their defense is playing at a world-class level, and hasn't conceded a goal through three La Liga matches.
