UCL Matchday 2 preview

Juventus vs Barcelona headlines Matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League: live streaming and TV listings to watch worldwide

October 27, 2020 By Ali M.
Matchday 2 of the UCL is upon us, with the standout fixture being Juventus vs Barcelona. Will we see Cristiano lock horns with Messi, however? Here's our preview.

Headline fixture of Matchday 2 – Juventus vs Barcelona

Immediately after the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League draw was held, everyone identified this game as the stellar fixture of the group stage. Having been drawn in the same group, Juventus and Barcelona will lock horns for the first of two encounters come Wednesday. 

The Italian champions and the Spanish giants will lock horns on the back of disappointing league results. The Bianconeri have drawn their last two Serie A ties, playing out 1-1 stalemates with Crotone and then Verona. This means Pirlo's side have failed to win three of their last four league fixtures, with the sole victory being a 3-0 win over Napoli due to Gli Azzurri's failure to travel to Turin due to COVID-19 cases within the team – they were slapped with a forfeit and a one-point deduction.

Things are even worse for the Blaugrana. The Catalan giants entered the recent international break on the back of a 1-1 draw with Sevilla. They then went on to lose their first two games after the break, falling 1-0 at Getafe and 3-1 at home to Real Madrid in the recent Clasico. As a result, Koeman's side find themselves in 12th with only two wins out of five.

The most interesting aspect of this game is the mouthwatering showdown between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, two of the best footballers to have graced the game. Unfortunately, the Portuguese icon is a huge doubt after contracting COVID-19. Several sources claim he could be given the greenlight to feature should he produce a negative result 48 or 24 hours before kick-off but that remains to be seen. Pique will also miss this tie after being sent off on Matchday 1.

Key talking points

The return of Cristiano vs Messi – but will we have to wait longer for the return of the rivalry?

Since Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018, fans have been longing to see Cristiano and Messi share the pitch just one more time. The rumors linking the Argentine with a move to Juve or Inter Milan offered a slimmer of hope but that never materialized. However, the five and six-time Ballon d'Or winner will finally battle it out once again, renewing their rivalry in the UCL group stage.

Cristiano's COVID-19 case has complicated things and thus appears likely to sit this one out. Regardless, fans should keep their eyes out for this one.

Can Man United make it back-to-back crucial wins in the UCL?

The Red Devils began their campaign with a trip to PSG, a game many expected them to lose after their start to the Premier League season. However, the opposite occurred, with Man United coming away with a crucial away win against last season's runners-up, beating them 2-1 thanks to a lovely Marcus Rashford winner. Next up for Solskjaer's men is a clash with RB Leipzig, another tricky test for the EPL giants. How will they fare this time around? Tune in to find out.
