The staff of the FC Barcelona would have received with some relief the news that it will confront against the Juventus of Turín in quarter-finals of Champions League. However, in Can Barça profesa also a big respect to the Italians
The FC Barcelona did not take at all badly the fact to have to measure to the Juventus of Turín in the round of quarter-finals of the Champions League 2016-17, due to the fact that in another of the eliminatory Bayern Munich and Real Madrid will confront between them and one of the two will remain on the way by the prestigious European title this season.
In spite of the initial relief, in the staff of the Barcelona the players are conscious that it neither touched in the draw an easy rival, since it would have been preferable to confront to Monaco, Borussia Dortmund or Leicester City, those that theoretically were the most affordable opponents.
The respect is maximum in the Barcelona changing room regarding the Juventus of Turín, and by this reason the players culés will go out motivated and concentrated to the one hundred by one hundred from the first minute of the eliminatory, having learnt the lesson -in theory- after the sucedido does around a month in the Park of The Princes against Paris Saint-Germain.
The Barcelona does not have to trust against the Juventus
"The memory of aquell final still is present and of that still agree us since it was very beautiful place that achieve another triplete", commented Iniesta when knowing that the Juventus would be the opponent to beat in quarter-finals by the FC Barcelona.
Already they have happened two seasons from that final in which the Barcelona imposed with some solvency (3-1), although the Juventus gave him problems. And also it will give them to him during the next month of April if the players culés do not employ to the maximum level of game so much in the Juventus Stadium as in the Camp Nou. At stake, a square for semifinals of Champions League.
