Barcelona will need to hit at least five goals past Juventus on
Wednesday to produce another miracle Champions League comeback,
but have nothing to lose according to outgoing coach Luis
The Catalans made Champions League history by overcoming a 4-0
first leg deficit to beat Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 in the last
round, but have another mountain to climb at the Camp Nou as they
trail their quarter-final tie 3-0.
"We need to score fewer goals," said an upbeat Enrique facing
what could be his last European game in charge. "But bearing in
mind the opponent could have chances and the goal can come at any
moment, our objective is to score five."
Enrique foresaw Barca's recovery in the last 16, claiming an
attack laced with the potential of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and
Neymar was capable of scoring six against the French champions.
And he called for an expected near 100,000 crowd to play their
part as they did against PSG.
"We don't have anything to lose. We are free from pressure.
Juventus have the semi-finals in their pocket and will have to
decide whether to sit back or attack," he added.
"We only have one option which is to attack, attack and attack
"I am sure that if we score the first goal, the Camp Nou will
score the second and the third will come of its own accord."
-- "Perfect game" --
Barca captain Andres Iniesta was more cautious in his optimism,
recognising the first leg in Turin had been "a terrible result."
However, he believes Barca have the potential to at least create
some doubt in Juventus minds.
"Nowadays teams respect us a lot. I am convinced they know we can
cause them problems," said Iniesta.
"We have the potential, the players and reason to believe we can
turn this tie around or at least get close to it.
"We need to create doubts so at some point they see the tie is in
"Everything depends on playing a perfect game in every sense."
Barca scored three times in the final two minutes plus stoppage
time as PSG froze in a grandstand finish six weeks ago.
And Enrique insisted Barca can't lose belief even if the goals
don't come early against a Juventus defence that has conceded
just two in nine Champions League games this season.
"Don't leave in the 80th minute," he said in a message to the
"We are going to try until the end. Those of us who experienced
the game against PSG have another chance to experience a historic
"We have seen that Barca can score three goals in three minutes
so we will stay together until the 95th minute."
Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini won his latest battle with
Luis Suarez in the first leg after the Uruguayan famously bit the
Italian at the 2014 World Cup.
Chiellini scored his side's third goal a week ago after Paulo
Dybala's early double and insists Juventus will need all their
experience to stand up to Barca's "sharks".
"We will have to play without fear because they are like sharks -
they smell blood and they finish you off," he told Sky Sports
The visitors were handed a big injury boost as Dybala has been
passed fit to play despite picking up an ankle injury in
Saturday's 2-0 win at Pescara.
Barca will welcome back Iniesta and Neymar from the side that
beat Real Sociedad 3-2 at the weekend with Messi's double in that
match taking him within two of 500 goals for the club.
