Champions League Matchday 6 starts on Tuesday with Group G’s top spot still needing to be decided as first-place Barcelona welcome second-place Juventus to the Camp Nou.
Barca are a perfect 5-0-0 and on 15 points, while Juve are three behind with still plenty to play for. Fans across the world are hoping we get Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo after Ronaldo didn’t play in their Matchday 1 game, which Barca won in Italy, 2-0.

Time: 3 p.m. ET
Location: Camp Nou — Barcelona, Spain

Odds: Barca +113; Draw +255; Juve +235 (via William Hill Sportsbook)
Barca: It remains to be seen how Barca approach this match after the 2-1 loss to Cadiz over the weekend.
Will Ronald Koeman rest his guys or go for the group? In the order to win the group, Barca need just a draw, but they can also lose by a goal and win it on the head-to-head tiebreaker, which could come down to away goals in their meetings.
Barcelona top the group ahead of Juventus having won 2-0 in Italy in October.
A point will see Barca make the last-16 as group winners while Juve will have to claim a handsome victory to leapfrog their rivals into first.
The match could see great rivals Messi and Ronaldo meet for the first time in nearly three years and fans around the world will hoping to see them go head-to-head.

Juve: The Italian side need to win by two goals to have any chance of winning the group. A two-goal win in which they score at least three goals will be enough to clinch Group G, but easier said than done.
Juve have only scored three goals once in their last six games, while Barca have only allowed three goals once this season — on Oct. 10 against Real Madrid en El Clasico.
Barca don’t look particularly sharp but earn a draw that locks them in as group winner. Pick: Barca 1, Juve 1.
