Luis Enrique’s Barcelona were able to get back to winning ways at the weekend after a nervy game against Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou.

It was not exactly how they would have wanted to prepare themselves for the Champions League tie coming up in the midweek.

The Catalan giants drew Italian champions Juventus in the quarter-final of the Champions League and the first leg completely lived up to the expectations.

While both teams went for the kill, Juventus managed to keep a clean sheet and also scored three past Barcelona to take a 3-0 advantage to Camp Nou later this week.

A 3 goal advantage, against probably the best defensive side in Europe, is always hard to eat into but Barcelona have done something even bigger not so long ago.

No many will ever forget the night at Camp Nou when the Spanish side came out trailing 4-0 to French giants PSG, only to win 6-1 and move into the next round.

Barcelona were given no chance in this game and were second favourites on the night. They needed three goals in the last nine minutes and versatile midfielder Sergi Roberto scored the third goal, with the last touch of the game to push the Spanish side into the next round of the competition.

But not long later, Barcelona find themselves in a similar position, where they have to come back from a 3-0 deficit to Juventus this week.

Yes, it is going to be harder, maybe even impossible but one Neymar Jr does not feel that way.

Speaking to the media recently, the Brazil star seemed confident that his team can come back into this game at the Camp Nou.

Speaking to the media, Neymar said, “We have to believe we can do it,” Neymar said to Canal Esporte Interactivo. “We can be behind any team, but at Barcelona, it’s always the same: we can do it.

“If everything goes well, another comeback will happen, I believe in the team and in our potential.”

“Everything is lost, so we have nothing to lose and everything to win,” he added.

However, he did address the fact that it will be a lot tougher for his side to score such goals this time around against Juventus.

“Juventus are a great team, very well structured, so it will be difficult to have to turn the tie.”

“It is the same as the situation against the PSG. We have a one percent chance of qualifying and the remaining 99 percent is work, faith and, god willing, goals. They are going to arrive,” Neymar added.

Do you think Barcelona can come back to beat Juventus this Wednesday?
