Ousmane Dembele makes first Barcelona start, Juventus spring Rodrigo Bentancur surprise

Ousmane Dembele makes first Barcelona start, Juventus spring Rodrigo Bentancur surprise

The five-time World Player of the Year's hat-trick at the weekend took his tally for the season to six.

Andres Iniesta, starting his fourth game in little over a week, shimmered.

"Semedo, Dembele and Paulinho played against some great players tonight". He is one of the best players in the history of the game. Mattia De Sciglio's long-range effort drew a fine finger tip save from ter Stegen.

Buffon flexed his muscles at the other end, too.

"Right now Juve can't do more than nine points in the league and Barca have done the same". By the time you counted to five, they had done so and were on the attack once more.

Lionel Messi netted two goals as Barcelona defeated Juventus 3-0 to begin their campaign with a win.

Dybala went up against Messi on Tuesday and suffered a 3-0 Champions League loss against Barca, not before Juve boss Marotta reiterated the club's desire to keep hold of the former Palermo man. To his left, although more as an inside-forward than a winger, he has Suarez. Dembele is a nuisance on flanks and his runs will confuse the Old Lady's defence, opening space for Messi to exploit.

It was United's first Champions League game since December 2015, with Jose Mourinho's side having engineered a return to the competition by winning the Europa League last season.

He said: "He shot three times and scored two goals and hit the post". He constantly beat Juve defenders and strained his opponents with his dribbling and passing.

Bentancur added: "Messi is incredible, he is a player from another planet". He has agreed his new contract with the club but has yet to sign the deal officially.

Vikings dominate the Saints in Monday's 29-19 victory
Stefon Diggs scored a touchdown on Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints , and he celebrated. The Vikings opened up last season 5-0 with victories over the Titans, Packers, Panthers, Giants and Texans.

Barca's sporting director Robert Fernandez has said he expects the Argentina worldwide to put pen to paper "soon". The Juventus defense is the best in the world and it was the reason for Barca's defeat. Midfielders Claudio Marchisio, Sami Khedira, Giorgio Chiellini, Mario Mandzukic and Benedikt Howedes are definitely out, whilst Alex Sandro remains a doubt.

Espanyol have now lost on their last 10 visits to the Nou Camp and although they were grossly mismatched here they were still afforded a couple of chances, both falling to Pablo Piatti, who struck the post in the first half and narrowly missed the target with an attempted chip in the second.

Despite that, they had their moments, especially in the first half.

The between the lines trickery of Dybala was less of an option because it duplicated something that Messi already offers.

Whether Valverde gives Ousmane Dembélé a start or not will be interesting as Gerard Deulofeu has a formed an effective chemistry with Lionel Messi, as the Spaniard seeks to find him at every opportunity.
