To beat Barcelona 3-0, you need to put in the perfect performance. Unquestionably, that is what Juventus did on Tuesday night with each and every player in a black and white shirt firmly on top of their game.
When the Bianconeri are firing on all cylinders, they are very difficult to live with, even for a world-class side such as Barcelona.
Racing out of the traps and taking an early lead was always going to be important in a match like yesterday’s and Paulo Dybala’s strikes in the 7th and 22nd minutes set the brightest of tones for the rest of the evening.
The most impressive part of last night’s victory, however, is the way Juve kept pulling out all the stops in attack, midfield and defence right up until full-time, ultimately giving Barca very few opportunities to work with.
