Juventus, happy to meet a weakened Barcelona team in the Champions League.


After losing to Barcelona in the Finals last two seasons and managed to dump the Catalan club out of the Champions League last season, Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta believes Barcelona are no longer the same quality as they have always been.

The Bianconeri have had a major impact in the Champions League for the past four seasons hence representing the Serie A well but have always had it difficult anytime they sqaure up against Barcelona.

The Champions League draws we’re done yesterday and the Old lady will have to go tooth and nail against the team from Spain after being drawn in Group D in the Champions League draw on Friday.


The other Group opponents are Olympiacos from Greece and Sporting CP from Portugal as the underdogs in a group where Juventus and Barcelona are expected to qualify to the round of sixteen with ease.

Beppe Morata believes Barcelona have weakened after the sale of Neymar to PSG and the current transfer Speculations linking Messi out of the club saying this would work against the team cause the spirit in camp is divided.
