Barcelona Eye Another Famous Comeback
Little over a month after producing the greatest comeback in Champions League history, Barcelona need another special turnaround as they face Juventus in the second leg of their quarterfinal on Wednesday.
Luis Enrique’s side were taken apart in the first leg in Turin, losing 3-0 to a Juve team inspired by Paulo Dybala, who scored twice.
In the last 16 they became the first team ever to overturn a 4-0 deficit when they beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 in the return at the Camp Nou, so fans are hoping for a similar “remuntada” this time.
Luis Enrique has said that many risks will be taken to the extent of fielding eight strikers as Barcelona have nothing to lose.
The Barcelona coach also called for supporters “to have faith in these players who have won everything. This is a squad of champions.”
