Can Juventus Upset Barcelona — Champions League Preview

UEFA Champions League 2017-18 schedule, date, time, live streaming, Group

Barcelona new manager Ernesto Valverde knows about the threat Juventus can pose. If Juventus' defense can keep the Spanish side in check, they have a really good chance of escaping with a result. Juventus also had two wins and seven losses in the final Champions league title so far.

Comparing Paulo Dybala with Lionel Messi is only going to "hurt" the Juventus talent, according to Edgar Davids.

Juventus are in a similar situation in Italy, where the side coached by Massimo Allegri too have won their three opening games of the season, scoring 10 goals and conceding just two.

This isn't a basic tap one note, stutter, then tap another note attempt.

"He has the qualities of a player at the highest level".

Juventus, like Barcelona, have an impressive attacking line-up, comprising stars like Douglas Costa, Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala.

Barcelona improved as the game went on, though. Both were out to make a statement to their doubters here but Barca took control from the start.

Davide Zappacosta scored on his full debut for Chelsea, with the deadline-day arrival giving Chelsea a comfortable 2-0 advantage over Qarabag with a sensational strike from a wide area. The opposition are overwhelmed whenever they get the ball.

The heir to Messi's throne?

Messi hasn't been required to chase and press for at least two seasons.

Messi has started the season in terrific fashion, showing no signs of unrest since Neymar's departure with five goals in his first three La Liga matches.

The Uruguayan's deft lay-off was gladly accepted by Messi, who arrowed a shot through Medhi Benatia's legs and into the bottom-right corner.

"Dybala will grow more and more, but there's still a long way to go for him [to reach Messi's level]".

"This president is a joke", Neymar posted on Instagram last week. They lost the curtain-raiser in the Italian Suppercopa to Lazio, but have since won all three of their Serie A games. Federico Bernardeschi looked like an upgrade over Rodrigo Betancur, but that wasn't enough. They had more fun, too.

"It doesn't necessarily calm me [having an in-form Messi], but to see Messi playing well certainly makes us a better team".

Okay, not over "per se". Sufficed to say, I won't be buying into the hype this season, nor getting too carried away with strong team or individual performances, nor any words from the players about lifting the trophy. Suarez had a goal disallowed due to an apparent offside position.

Nick Ames is a football journalist who writes for ESPN FC on a range of topics.

This summer's transfer window saw the world transfer record obliterated when Paris St-Germain spent £198m on Neymar from Barcelona. Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos should be easier than Barca. Everyone has to believe that if they run their guts out, then each team member around them is 100 percent guaranteed to be doing the same thing.
