BARCELONA will have to produce mission impossible two to keep their Champions League dream alive after they were thrashed 3-0 at Juventus.
A brace from Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini’s header condemned the Catalans to a first leg defeat in Turin, and left them facing elimination from Europe’s biggest stage.
Of course, Lionel Messi, Neymar and co have already produced a miraculous comeback in the last round as they overturned a four-goal deficit to claim a remarkable victory over Paris Saint-Germain.
But surely even a call to Tom Cruise will not be able to help them conjure up another magical night when they face the Serie A giants in the return match next week.
They fell behind on 22 minutes in Italy as their poor defending proved to be their undoing.
Juan Cuadrado was not closed down by Jeremy Mathieu on the right and the former Chelsea man picked out Dybala, who turned to curl the ball home.
