Barcelona fans react to drawing Juventus in Champions League on social media

Barcelona VP full of praise for potential replacement of Luis Enrique

The last-eight tie marks a repeat of the 2015 final, when Barca beat Juve 3-1 to lift the European cup, and Mestre felt the Blaugrana were in "a good place" to get the better of the Old Lady a second time. The question of how battle-hardened it is given the relative ease with which it is winning Serie A is a fair one, but this is an experienced squad with plenty of depth, probably the best Juventus side in over a decade.

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti will face the team he led to a record tenth UEFA Champions League title after the quarter-final draw on Friday pitched the record German champions against Real Madrid. This tie comes at just the right time and I agree with what ex-Juve boss Giovanni Trapattoni said in that Juve must "focus on themselves". We need to respect Barca, but without any fear because we are capable of challenging them.

We took at how Barcelona fans reacted to the draw. "They are an historic club, we are happy to meet Dani Alves again". We are a strong side and we can face them head on.

"The first leg is very important, because I've played at Camp Nou and I know what it feels like to be pushed on by 95,000 people".

"I remember a precedent when we played the return at the Camp Nou and it went well for us", Nedved said, referring to April 2003 when Juve won 2-1 in Spain.

"It doesn't matter where we play as we both matches will be hard".
