FC Barcelona

BARCELONA, SPAIN – MARCH 08: Lionel Messi in action during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg match between FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain at Camp Nou on March 8, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. (Photo by Michael Regan/Getty Images)

Manager: Luis Enrique

Projected Starting XI (3-1-4-2): ter Stegen; Mascherano, Pique, Umtiti; Busquets; Rafinha, Rakitic, Iniesta, Neymar; Messi, Suarez

Done and dusted, or so it seemed after a 4-0 deficit heading into the second leg. Barcelona engineered an historical comeback last week, defeating Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 (6-5 on aggregate) with a Sergi Roberto stunner at the death. In the final seven minutes, Barcelona managed to strike the back of the net three times. An anomaly for most, but Barcelona are not like “most” clubs. Anytime you can run out an attack featuring Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, the chances of winning are quite good. Barcelona are no strangers to this tournament, and neither is Luis Enrique who steered the club to a Champions League victory over Juventus two years ago. While Paulo Dybala and Juventus seek their revenge on the Blaugrana, my guess is they’d prefer to have their chance to do so come 3 June in Cardiff.
