Juventus, Barcelona ready for UEFA Champions League quarterfinals

The FC panel debate if La Liga's domination in the UCL is solely dependent on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus and Barcelona will meet for the first time since the 2015 UEFA Champions League final when they compete in the first leg of their quarterfinal tie in Turin on Tuesday.

The only team to win all six of their Champions League games, Juventus have lost just once in all competitions since Jan. 15 -- a 3-2 loss to Napoli in the second leg of a Coppa Italia semifinal last week, although they still advanced to their third successive final on aggregate.

Gonzalo Higuain, who leads Juventus with 27 goals in all competitions, has scored three times in the Champions League this season. He has scored four goals in his last two games -- a 2-0 victory against Chievo and a 3-2 defeat away to Napoli in the Coppa Italia -- after having been held without a goal in his previous five games.

Although Barcelona is a 65 percent favourite to advance, according to FiveThirtyEight.com's Soccer Power Index (SPI), Juventus is the first-leg favourite.

The Bianconeri will face resilient Barcelona, who advanced to the quarterfinal stage following a 6-1 second-leg win and 6-5 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain on March 8.

Lionel Messi, who has scored 43 goals in 42 games this season in all competitions, has 11 goals in the Champions League -- the most of any player.

Lionel Messi has 94 Champions League goals, leaving him one behind Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo for the most all-time.

Neymar, who scored two goals and had an assist in the final six minutes of Barcelona's victory against PSG, has four goals in the Champions League this season. Behind him is Luis Suarez, who has scored three of his 32 goals -- second behind Messi -- in the Champions League.

Barcelona, which won 3-1 in the 2015 final in Berlin, is making their record 10th consecutive appearance in the quarterfinal round. Juventus is unbeaten against them in three home meetings, winning once and drawing twice.

The second leg of the quarterfinal tie will be held at the Camp Nou on April 19.
