The best possible Barcelona team right now is pretty clear, but since this is Ernesto Valverde away from home we won’t see Paco Alcácer with Lionel Messi and Suárez up front. Valverde loves to play a flat 4-4-2 with four midfielders defending wide and attacking narrow, with the full-backs not pushing forward and the team turning into a slow, controlling mess that just wants to keep the ball and maybe get a goal. It’s not pretty, but it’s worked so far and that is probably what we’ll see against Juve as well.Barca lost 3-0 in Italy in the quarter-final first leg last season, the return leg in Spain ending goalless.Ernesto Valverde’s side will finish top of Group D with one game to spare if they win.”We want to show that we learnt our lesson from the last time that we played here,” said midfielder Rakitic.The most anticipated match of all in this round definitely is Juventus vs Barcelona. When these two teams play, there’s always lots of excitements and anything can happen.
