KXIP vs KKR Live Score

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.

Despite being handed a tough draw in the Champions League, vice-president Pavel Nedved sees no reason why the Bianconeri should fear Barcelona. "Juve are growing by the day".

"If I had to pick a team to avoid I'd say Bayern [Munich]. We're happy to be here today as the only Italian side left in the competition, which makes me proud, but I would prefer if it there were other Italian sides here because Italian football needs them".

Barca triumphed 3-1 two seasons ago to seal a LaLiga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble, while Juve have not lifted the famous trophy since 1996.

Barcelona very almost crashed out of the tournament in the Round of 16 after a 4-0 first leg defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, but completed an incredible comeback to win 6-1 with the last kick of the game. It gives you wings and we saw that against PSG.

"It doesn't mean we'll go through, but we're in a good place to do so".

"I respect Juve a lot".

Juve will host the first leg on April 11 before the return at Camp Nou the following week, when full-back Dani Alves will be welcomed back to a club with whom he enjoyed eight trophy-laden years. "We have to score in Turin".
