⚽ Predictions

SportsMole's Barney Corkhill: Juventus 2-1 Barcelona

"Barcelona still have quite a few of the players that won the 2015 final against Juventus, but as a team they look a million miles away from being able to scale the heights of European football again at the moment.

Juventus have not been in great form themselves as they continue to find their feet under Pirlo, but they seem in less trouble than Barcelona and so we are backing them to come out on top on Wednesday."

Evening Standard's Tom Doyle: Juventus 1-1 Barcelona

"Given it is still early in the season and neither side is firing on full cylinders, a tense draw could be on the cards - unless Messi or Ronaldo step up, that is."
