      MASCHERANO: "JUVENTUS RECORD HERE TERRIFIC"

      “We are all looking forward to be taking on a team like Juventus in the Champions League quarter-finals. Only two top performances will see us through to the next round.

      "If you don’t play your best at this level, you so often get punished for it. Juve are an excellent side with an illustrious history and a formidable home record here at Juventus Stadium. Our target is to take a first-leg lead back to the Nou Camp."

      “This team knows how to play one way and one way only. We don’t want to second guess ourselves and our style, and compromise our performance. With the quality of the players we have at our disposal, we simply have to play to win.

      “Gonzalo and Paulo are two fabulous players. I know them well and we will need to pay special attention to them because they have the talent to take the game away from you in one single moment.” 

      LUIS ENRIQUE: "ONLY A TOP PERFORMANCE WILL DO"

      “Juventus’ record here is as good as it’s ever been in the club’s history and is among the best of anyone left in the competition so clearly we will have to play very well indeed to beat them. Our goal remains the same: to produce a world-class performance.

      “Juve can press, they can play out from the back, they can dig deep and grind out results…they are a top side all over the field. We will play our own game but both teams have a chance of reaching the semi-finals. Sergio Busquets will be missing for us in midfield but I have plenty of options to replace him."
