McKennie scores in consecutive matches for Juventus

FC Barcelona hosted Juventus for the last game of Group G of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night at Camp Nou. Even if Barça lost 2-0 they would secure top spot in the group, but the ‘Old Lady’ came, saw and conquered.

The last time they faced each other, Barcelona beat them 2-0 on Matchday 2 of the group stage. That is why Juventus were eager to play Barça, because they wanted revange. Prior to the match, Weston McKennie said that the team was “ pumped for the Barcelona game, so we’ll do our research on them and try to understand how we can get the best possible result.”
