This Tuesday starts the most beautiful competition, the most exciting, the hardest, the most demanding. The best of Europe face to face. The Champions League, the most prestigious title season after season. And the Barça gives the starting signal this Tuesday in the Camp Nou in front of the Juventus -here can buy entrances-, still with the bad memory of that night of chambers in Turín.

All has changed in the Barcelona club -or almost all-. It went Luis Enrique and arrived Valverde, Neymar left and landed Dembélé...
