Barcelona in tricky position to produce another comeback

Five Great Barcelona European Comebacks

Barcelona are in need of a second miracle, but Juventus are surely a different beast to the PSG side who crumbled at the Nou Camp last month. "We needed four goals, this time only three, but bearing in mind that the opponent will score, our goal will be to get five", the Barcelona boss said in the press conference ahead of the game.

"It will be a tough match, but I know that if we play to win, we can cause Barcelona plenty of trouble again".

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.

There were mixed emotions for Dani Alves after the Juventus full-back helped dump former club Barcelona out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals.

Here's some hope for Barcelona's upcoming game against Juventus, in which they must overturn a 0-3 first leg result. "We will try right until the end", he said. That cavalier-ish approach could just play into Juve's hands, as they are a side that will lap up any chance they get. "I wish them the best and I think they can win the title".

The Italians are in the semi-finals along with Real Madrid, Monaco and Atletico Madrid, with the draw made on Friday.

Arkansas governor disappointed by court ruling
The high court's order sparing Davis offered no explanation, but none of the justices voted in favor of lifting the stay. Two inmates, Stacey Johnson and Ledell Lee , are scheduled for execution April 20 and both are claiming innocence.

After a goalless extra-time, the hosts prevailed 3-1 on penalties. Teenager Kylian Mbappe and forward Radamel Falcao struck early to put Monaco on its way.

He has won seven Serie A crowns with Juventus, the UEFA Cup with Parma and the 2006 World Cup with Italy, but when asked what it would mean for him to lift Europe's top club trophy, he replied: "It's a wonderful challenge for me every year". Fortunately for the Brazil right back, the opening move planned by Barcelona to send a long ball into his defensive zone flopped.

Barcelona, however, can never be discounted, which means this should be an intriguing encounter. "My players were extraordinary tonight".

So the Bianconeri will have to brace themselves for a Barcelona storm from kick off and keep their cool as chances will be few, but they will come. Neymar volleyed Jordi Alba's pass wide before Messi drew the first save from Buffon just past the half-hour mark. Messi tumbled face first into the turf, and showed a small scratch that bled on his cheek once he got back on his feet.

A minute from the break Neymar picked up a needless booking after charging into Pjanic and he will serve a suspension in Barca's next Champions League fixture.

"Picking youself up after a defeat like this is hard, but we have the best motivation a Cule can have", Luis Enrique said, "which is visit the home of our eternal rival - there's no better place than to go to than the Bernabeu". We intend to hurt Barca and a goal would make a big difference in this tie and be a blow for them.
