Lionel Messi magic leads Barcelona to Juventus win

Share

It was United's first Champions League game since December 2015, with Jose Mourinho's side having engineered a return to the competition by winning the Europa League last season.In the same group, CSKA Moscow came from behind to beat Portuguese champions Benfica 2-1 in Lisbon with Timur Zhamaletdinov getting their victor.

But once he found room to work, Messi picked Buffon's Juventus apart - to take some revenge from last year's elimination and continue his superb start to the current season. Paulo Dybala scored a brace in that first leg, and "La Joya" has been in fine form already this season. The Brazilian global opened the match with the first goal, and following that, the second big arrival among the Saints, Kylian Mbappe scored too. There has been some discussion over how Allegri plans to accommodate Dybala tactically this time around, with two different schools of thought.

Juventus, like Barcelona, have an impressive attacking line-up, comprising stars like Douglas Costa, Gonzalo Higuain and Paolo Dybala. Neymar put PSG in front before he set up Mbappe to make it 2-0. Only Cristiano Ronaldo has scored more (105).

The visitors certainly went into the game full of confidence after a 3-0 Serie A win over Chievo at the weekend - while Messi had scored three in a 5-0 La Liga thrashing of Espanyol. "The last three years have been fantastic, we achieved two Champions League Finals", Allegri told UEFA.com."The first was rather unexpected, while for the second, we had greater hopes of really winning it". If he continues to play like this then there's no reason the Spanish club shouldn't be successful.
