Our prediction for this Champions League match:
There will be fireworks when Juventus and Barcelona, the two old rivals, face each other at Allianz Stadium on Wednesday evening. Ronaldo-less Juve did well to beat Dynamo Kiev on the road in their Champions League opener, but Barca are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Italian champions than their previous rivals. In CR7’s absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Alvaro Morata, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over Dynamo Kiev.
Federico Chiesa returns from a domestic ban, while Chiellini, De Ligt, and Alex Sandro remain in the recovery room. The Catalan giants, on the other hand, are low on confidence following a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in “El Clasico”. Considering that Barca chiefs failed to reinforce the squad in the last transfer window, we are tempted to put our money on Juve, who did not miss Ronaldo in their Champions League opener. Gerard Pique will have to serve his ban against Juventus.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Ramsey):
Aaron Ramsey is a Welsh football player born on the 26th of December in Caerphilly. Ramsey started his football career playing for Cardiff City. After 2 seasons playing for Cardiff City Ramsey got transferred to Arsenal for a unknown transfer fee. After playing for a loan for Nottingham Forrest and Cardiff City Ramsey returned to Arsenal in 2011.
Aaron Ramsey made his debut for the Welsh national team in 2008 and is one of the youngest players in the history of Welsh football. Ramsey is currently one of the most talentful midfielders of his generation. Because of his dribbling skills, vision and great passes and being two-footed Ramsey is known for being a player that dominates the midfield.

Ramsey and Gareth Bale are the biggest strength of the Welsh national team which will play in the EURO 2016 for the first time in history.
Highlighted Team (Barcelona):
Barcelona is a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning “El Pichichi” award. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past.
The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark. Barcelona welcome their rivals at Camp Nou, the stadium that was built in 1957.
Barcelona’s local rivals are Espanyol, but the rivalry between Barca and Real Madrid is much bigger. The two La Liga giants face each other in “El Clasico”, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Barca are famous for their football youth school La Masia as well.
