Barcelona play Juventus next week a the Camp Nou and have a giant 3-0 scoreline to overturn. But first both teams took part in their domestic league campaigns.
Latest reports confirms that Barcelona tormentor Paulo Dybala has picked up an injury during their game against Pescara.
Paulo Dybala injured against Pescara
The Argentine was taken off after just 54 minutes as Juve went on to win 2-0. Reports have not yet confirmed he would be ruled out of the Barcelona game after the challenge from Sulley Muntari.
But it means his game time could be limited if he eventually makes the team on Wednesday.
Commenting on the injury, Juventus coach Massimilaino Allegri said: “It was an impact where he twisted it, there’s reason to be optimistic.”
“The lads did well to win today, but we had to manage the game better and not waste our energy. It was hot, it was all a chase and we didn’t use the space well.
“The lads were good but we could have done better with the ball in the second half, the ball didn’t glide well but the pitch was beautiful.
Many fans would hardly see this as good news and wonder why a team like Barcelona need a player injured first to win. But if they are true to themselves then they know the current Barcelona team needs all the help it can get to overturn the result.
Here is just a side note for the Barcelona fans: Angel Di Maria who is also an Argentine was in form in PSG’s 4-0 win over Barcelona. And like Dybala, Di Maria scored two goals in the first leg.
But Angel Di Maria was limited in the second leg due to an injury and started the game from the bench.
Could this be a positive handwriting on the wall?
