Both sides are already through to the last 16 and Blaugrana, who have won all five group games so far, will secure top spot if they avoid a three-goal defeat.
Barcelona vs Juventus Latest Odds
Andrea Pirlo’s side were beaten 2-0 in Turin when these teams met in October but have won four of their last five away games in the Champions League.
The visitors are priced at 11/5 (3.20) with bet365 to claim a victory, while Barca can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) and the draw at 13/5 (3.60).
Barcelona vs Juventus Team News
Ronaldo Koeman has rested players for the last two matches in the competition but is unlikely to continue that policy, given that top spot is yet to be mathematically secured while their problems in La Liga also mean a victory is of vital importance for morale.
Gerard Pique, Ansu Fati and Sergi Roberto are all out for the hosts, while Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araujo are likely to still be sidelined.
Juve look set to be without defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral, although Cristiano Ronaldo is available to potentially line up against rival Lionel Messi after the Portuguese missed the reverse fixture.
Barcelona vs Juventus Preview
Neither side have been at their best domestically, but it is fair to say that Barcelona’s problems run deeper than those faced by their Italian opponents.
Koeman’s side were beaten 2-1 at newly promoted Cadiz at the weekend, their fourth defeat in 10 league matches, and any hope of a La Liga title challenge seems to have already been dashed with the deficit now at 12 points.
The Catalans have kept just three clean sheets in the league and the loss of Pique to a long-term injury will surely continue to have an impact.
Meanwhile, the only loss that Juve have suffered in their 15 competitive games this season was at the hands of Barcelona, which was also the only game in which the Turin outfit have not scored.
Juve have netted in 13 of their last 15 away games in the Champions League and there should be an interest in backing them to take advantage of Barca’s defensive woes.
The Italian champions do share Barca’s defensive inconsistency, though, having also kept just three clean sheets in 10 Serie A games.
Barcelona vs Juventus Tips And Predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is offered at 9/10 (1.90) and looks an extremely tempting option.
