I've watched Barca last night and they were very uninspired against Real Sociedad, they lacked intensity and hung in there in the end by a thread (Yuri missed a glorious chance)...

Sociedad had 7 shots on target, the highest number of shots Barca has ever conceded at home in all competitions this season... while Sociedad also had 51% Ball Possession with Barca seeing less of the ball, specially in the 2nd half.. from the strongest 11, only 2 players were rested (the suspended Neymar & Iniesta), whereas Mascherano is injured....

This bodes well for us, but of course doesn't mean anything as Barca usually show up in big matches, specially in the CL......

Their defense was all over the place. We can't go to Camp Nou & park the bus.

Ref is Cüneyt Çakır.

He was the ref of 2015 CL final.

Juventus are confident Paulo Dybala will recover from a sprained ankle in time to face Barcelona on Wednesday at Camp Nou.

The forward bagged a brace in the 3-0 first leg victory of their Champions League quarter-final.

He limped off during Saturday’s 2-0 Serie A victory at Pescara following a series of particularly crunching Sulley Muntari tackles.

La Joya has bruising and a slight sprain to the right ankle, which did swell up a little after the game.

Dybala was spotted leaving the Stadio Adriatico with strapping around the ankle that was meant to prevent further swelling and keep it still.

There is confidence that the Argentine will be fully recovered for Wednesday’s trip to Camp Nou.

We shouldn't care who the referee will be. Cakir or Aytekin or whoever the hell is appointed can make awful decisions but he shouldn't be decisive. If we go with the mindset that the game is rigged against us, we will fail. If things don't go our way, we just have to adjust, just like Inter did in 2010. There is no time to be fancy or pretty - if you get a player dismissed, you park the bus and catenaccio the shit out of this game or do whatever it takes to get the necessary result.

By the way, in 2003, when we beat Barcelona thanks to an extra-time Zalayeta goal, we played with 10 men since minute 79.

Usually good news, but he was so awful first game I want to see him play again.




In other news, our social media team&pr stepped up their game big time past year or two, this is very cinematic
