“Juventus Won’t Collapse Like PSG”

Former Juventus manager Marcelo Lippi has backed the Italian club to come out on top against Barcelona, saying they are better than PSG.


Juventus hold a commanding 3-0 lead over Barcelona, after a fruitful first leg, with Dybala scoring a brace and Chiellini getting the last goal.

Barcelona lost 4-0 in the first leg against PSG, but came back at home, winning 6-1 at home to win 6-5 on aggregate.

Lippi, however, says Juve are unlikely to allow such a comeback to take place.

“Barca’s arsenal is unique but it’s only in the attacking sense,” he told La Stampa. “Juventus are the better team and if they can disconnect the front three as they managed to in the first leg, they have a great chance of winning the second leg.

“They have to play the same as they did in Turin, exploiting all their virtues, because they won’t be able to stop them.

“Barca will try in front of 90,000 spectators, and they did it well against PSG, but Juve are not PSG. I don’t imagine Juve will allow it to happen. But, in football, of course anything can happen.”
