Hernan Crespo: ‘Barcelona better than Juventus’


Hernan Crespo believes that La Liga champions are stronger than Juve.

Barcelona will face off with Juventus in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. The last time these two met in the 2015 Champions League final where the Blaugrana beat Bianconerri 3-1.

“The way I see it is, if Barça and Juve are both at 100 per cent the Blaugrana will go through. They’re stronger,” Crespo told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“That’s not to say though that [Lionel] Messi and his lads are at their best, they flopped in the first leg with Paris Saint-Germain.

“So Juve can have their say. One thing is for sure, [Max] Allegri’s lads can’t afford any mistakes, they have to be in top physical and psychological condition. And [Gonzalo] Higuain can be decisive.
