Barcelona will be hoping to maintain the confidence gained from winning the El Clasico when they face Juventus in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday night. The Catalans defeated their rivals in the last match and even though it was just a friendly, beating Real Madrid is always a welcome boost for Barca. That result will give them a lot of confidence when taking on the Italian giants in their next match. Both sides did not have the best of the season last time out, hence they will be eager to improve it this year. Ideally, it will be difficult to call a winner in this fixture but the Spaniards have played more matches than their opponents in the summer, which should give them a slight edge.
