Reaction
Pavel Nedvěd, Juventus vice-president
I don't know if it's revenge after the 2015 final, but it's certainly a fascinating tie. They are one of the most famous teams in the world, but Juve have improved a lot and can take them on without fear.

Andrés Iniesta, Barcelona captain
As well as having that solid [defensive] block typical of Italian teams, they have players who can make the difference, some of the best in every position who are at a very high level. It will be a difficult tie, but with our capabilities we aim to push it in our favour.

Claudio Marchisio, Juventus midfielder
It will be completely different compared with the final in 2015. In Berlin it was a 90-minute match; now we have two games against Barcelona and we don't have to think of it as a matter of revenge at all.
