A clash of two giants – Juventus v Barcelona.
If you were looking forward to the Ronaldo v Messi clash though, you are going to be left disappointed.
We were positively ecstatic about the prospect of seeing Cristiano Ronaldo beat Lionel Messi, unfortunately the Portuguese star is positive himself, for Covid-19, so misses the game.
The glamour tie of this round has taken a slight hit, but this is still a game to be excited about, with the likes of Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala giving Juve enough firepower to trouble the Spaniards.
Read on to check out our top odds picks for this one.

Our Top Odds Pick – Juventus to win – 17/10 at bet365
Coming here on the back of a 3-1 defeat at home in El Classico has Barcelona up against the wall.
They’ve lost two and drawn one of their last three La Liga games, with a victory over Ferencvaros in the Champions League being their only success in four.
The faltering giants look in trouble, and Juve are fancied to pick them off and add further misery for Messi and his merry men.
Our Extra Pick – Juventus (-1 goal) – 17/4 at 888sport
The negative for Juventus is they have played four games in all competitions and only won two. The positive is that they won those games by margins of two and three goals.
That combined with the price on offer here makes the -1 handicap line hard to resist.
On their day, with Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala in attack, this team can score goals and win games against most.
Let’s hope Wednesday is their day.
Our Long Shot – 3-1 Correct Score – 19/1 at BetVictor
Beaten 3-1 in El Classico at the weekend, Barcelona could suffer the same humiliation in Europe this week.
Barca have enough to score a goal but their defensive frailties can be exposed by this Juventus team, even minus Ronaldo.
3-1 for us, in what could turn out to be a comfortable evening for the Italians.
