According to Juventus vs Barcelona H2H Stats, the last five games between these two clubs resulted in two wins for Barcelona, one win for Juventus and two draws.

Although Juventus are undefeated in seventeen of their last nineteen games in the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona are unbeaten in all competitions this season.

Moreover, Juventus are coming off a 3-2 loss at the hands of Sampdoria this weekend while Barcelona will be more confident of their chances, especially with Luis Suarez back amongst goals.

It should be a closely contested affair, but Barcelona are likely to win 2-1 tonight.
