In the second match of the Group E UEFA Champions League 2020/21, despite being played at home, Juventus proved to be totally behind Barca. Without Ronaldo, Messi was naturally the lead character of the summit. Even as Dembele helped open the game, the M10 scored directly at the end of the match.
Despite having dominated Italian football for almost a decade (9 straight Scudetto), Juventus was unable to carry home the third C1 / Champion League title in history. At this point, the greatest accomplishment of “Old Lady” is only the last two times (losing … Barca in 2015 and losing to Real Madrid in 2017).
From Massimiliano Allegri to Maurizio Sarri, no one can help the squad to quench their hunger for titles in the most prestigious club-level arena on the continent. And now the team leaders have agreed to bet on coach Andrea Pirlo.
At the Barca summit tonight, Cristiano Ronaldo will already be in the crowd because he wasn’t out of Covid-19, but in Pirlo ‘s possession is Alvaro Morata, who won Barca in the 2014/15 Champions League final (unfortunately, Juventus lost 1-3 in the end) or Paulo Dybala, the striker who scored twice against the Catalunya giants in the 2016/17 Champions League quarter-finals. 0 after two matches)
Also, don’t forget that Juve had reached the Champions League Final twice before CR7 arrived. Since Ronaldo joined Juventus in 2018, it seems that “Old Lady” has more or less a disease depending on the Portuguese star, not a strong party, not relying on any person, like when Allegri was in the lead.
One day CR7 could not play, Juventus was absolutely deadlocked before Barca in the reconstruction process , despite using “tricks”.
Barcelona is in dire straits as players are taken to court over voluntary cuts in pay and at the same time face the unimaginable danger of being sold to private owners.
Barcelona may be off to a strong start to the season, but the backstage is a mess. The club ‘s leadership faces a vote of no confidence and, if that happens, President Josep Bartomeu and his colleagues will be fired because the club is poor in terms of results and financial difficulties. Over the years, the awful shortfall created by the Covid-19 outbreak has been combined with unreasonable spending.
Recently, however, the question of arbitration was discussed at the Nou Camp. According to the Spanish press, Barcelona is having a dispute with workers, including players, after they have planned to cut 30% of the salaries of all employees. Sources say that the plan is being finalized to be enforced in three weeks ‘ time, although it seems that Barca did so willingly without the approval of the other party.
Barca’s leadership declared a pay reduction a week ago, because it was important to rapidly solve the financial shortfall faced by the club. The release of the announcement without agreement with the employees ‘representatives and the players’ representatives has caused dissatisfaction, and the players are now requiring management to account directly with them.
Previously, there was evidence that Barca players could willingly cancel their contracts if Barca had arbitrarily broken the terms of the deal, contributing to an unprecedented likelihood that Lionel Messi would still be allowed to resign. The squad has gone to Man City without being sued. However, in the event that the players win the lawsuit and compel Barca to comply with the deal, this would lead to an unimaginable event.
