Iniesta: With Perfection, We Can Beat Juventus

Andres Iniesta believes it is possible to pull off another comeback, but Barcelona must be perfect to do so against Juventus.


Barcelona already came from 4-0 down to beat PSG 6-1 at home and progress to the quarterfinals 6-5 on aggregate.

Barcelona are in the same precarious situation again, having lost 3-0 to Juventus in the first leg.

“There are a lot of similarities compared to the game against PSG. We need to have the same attitude right from the first minute,” Iniesta stated at a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s second leg.

“It will be complicated to pull off another comeback, but I am sure it is possible. We have to play a perfect game. We have to create the maximum number of chances and score goals. We probably need our best game of the season.

“An early goal would be a boost, but we have to be patient. We cannot afford to lose patience if the goal does not come.

“I think Juventus have only conceded two or three goals this Champions League. But this does not change anything for us. We know that we have the potential to score goals. I am convinced they know we can hurt them.

“The first leg was a bad result for us. We did not do the things we had to do. It is a complicated task, but we have the players to turn things around. We need a perfect match.”
