Juventus coach Allegri: Don't compare Dybala with Messi

Sporting CP head coach Jorge Jesus said he believes his side can cause an upset in Barcelona after their hopes of qualification for the Champions League knockout stages were kept alive thanks to a 3-1 win over Olympiacos. "Now we have to win the next game and not wait to see what Barcelona do", La Joya told Mediaset Premium.

"Today was very hard because they defend very well", Dybala said.

This season Juventus fell 3-0 in Barcelona and Valverde expects the Italian side to come out firing on all cylinders after their Serie A title defence took a knock with a 3-2 defeat at Sampdoria. Alaba has twisted his back and Rafinha has a knock to an ankle, sidelining them for a game which Bayern need to win to keep up the pressure on Group B leaders Paris Saint-Germain.Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes will have to re-arrange his defence after resting Alaba and playing Brazilian global Rafinha at left-back in Saturday's 3-0 win at home to Augsburg. They have twice dumped out Barcelona and beat Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich en route to the 2016 final.

"We must try to improve our football". I don't think you can say anyone is the favourite tomorrow, as these are two strong teams playing on level terms. "Sometimes it's useful to change things but other times it just needs a little patience".

Juve have plenty of firepower to test Barca, though, and Gonzalo Higuain is in particularly fine form having netted six times in his last five appearances.

Additionally, we should note that Barcelona want to keep their winning sequence going.

"It will be a hard match against them and we need to qualify, but nothing has been decided yet".

Ex-Barcelona icon Xavi has claimed that Lionel Messi should stay at the Camp Nou until he retires, after it has been strongly rumoured that the Argentine legend has already put pen-to-paper and signed a contract extension with the club.
