UCL: FIVE REASONS IN WHICH JUVENTUS WILL DEFEAT BARCELONA IN TURIN


Juventus vs Barcelona UEFA Champions League Quater Final.


The UEFA Champions League resume at Quater Final stage tonight as one of the mouthwatering clashes in the quater final fixtures is set to go on pitch as Juventus welcome Five Times winner Barcelona. in what is said to  be a repeat of the 2015 final in Berlin in which Barcelona emerged Victorious.

Pundit Sport bring to you FIVE possible reason Juventus will defeat Barcelona in the first leg clash at Turin.

BARCELONA ON POOR AWAY RUN IN RECENT FORM.
Before now, Barcelona are a handful wherever they play but that invincibility seems to have eluded the Catalan giants who now grasp for breath once they are away from the Camp Nou.

Barcelona's recent away record does not inspire much confidence with their defeat at Malaga on Saturday the third in their last five matches in the road in all competitions. 

Furthermore, Barca have been trailing at half or full time in four of their last five away games in the tournament making this a victory for Juve a realistic mission.


BARCELONA WITH WEAK BACK LINE
While the Barcelona front-line of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, the MSN always strikes fear in the minds of opposing teams, their defense often than not inspire hope of getting something past the Catalan giants.

In almost all their away games this season in the Champions League, Barcelona have failed it to keep a clean sheet, if they are breached by the Juve attack they may find it difficult or impossible to get back.


GONZALO HIGUAIN ON GOAL SCORING FORM
After almost two months of goals drought, the Argentine forward picked the right time to get his mojo back as he banged a brace over Chievo in the weekend.
With no goals to his name in the Champions League this calendar year, Higuain will be hoping to heap more mysteries on a Barca team largely inspired by his compatriot, Lionel Messi


JUVENTUS'GOOD HOME RECORD FORM
Juve's home record is one of the most impressive across the continent with the Old Lady unbeaten in their own stadium in any competition since August 2015.
Juventus say they have learned a lot after the 2015 defeat against, let's see how they put to use what they have learnt from the defeat in Berlin two years ago.



BARCELONA RELY ON MESSI MORE TO DELIVER
Messi is a great footballer without doubt. Already a legend at 29 years old but even he himself knows he can be marked out of a game. 

Often than not the likes of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid have perfected that act.
If the supply to Messi is cut, Barcelona are in trouble. Messi has been involved in 80% of Barcelona's goals this season whether as the scorer or the man to assist or the man to start the attacks.
