Roy Keane: “Barcelona comeback? The tie is over!”

Roy Keane insists Juventus won’t allow Barcelona back into their Champions League quarter-final contest.

The Serie A titleholders defeated the Catalan powerhouse 3-0 in the first leg in Turin on Tuesday night.

Former Red Devils captain Keane believes Juve simply will not let the La Liga side to produce a similar comeback to the stunning win over PSG in the Round of 16.

“Juventus always seem to be in the mix every year, whatever players they sell they reinvest it well, they buy top quality, they’ve got a lot of experience in their team,” Keane told ITV.

“Barcelona still look sharp going forward but at the back they were awful and this game is over. The tie is over. No chance of a PSG style comeback. They can sit in and on top of all that they still carry a goal threat even from set-pieces.”
