Juventus striker, Gonzalo Higuain, has noted that Spanish giants, Barcelona can still scale through the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League in their second leg encounter on Wednesday.

Juventus defeated Barcelona 3-0 in the first leg in Italy a week ago.

Higuain knows there is no room for complacency against Barcelona at Camp Nou.

But Luis Enrique’s men, who face a pivotal week in the season with a trip to Real Madrid in El Clasico on Sunday, made Champions League history in the round-of-16 when they overturned a 4-0 deficit against Paris Saint-Germain with an improbable 6-1 win at Camp Nou.

Higuain, a former Real Madrid player, told Juventus’ official website, “I don’t know whether our 3-0 lead will be enough. We have to come out fighting at Camp Nou and play like we did in the first leg in Turin.

“Barcelona showed against PSG that they’re capable of producing miracles, so we have to be on our toes.

“They’ll be wary of us too, however. We’ll be looking to create opportunities to score and we’re certain that we have what it takes to reach the next round.

“I’m very satisfied about how the season is going. There’s still just over a month left and we want to go all the way in each competition,” said record signing Higuain, who has 29 goals in all competitions.

“This is a crucial moment in our league campaign. It’s not over yet and we’ve 18 points to play for so we can’t take our foot off the gas.

“With each game, however, we’re getting closer and closer to that sixth straight Scudetto we all want so much. We’re in the driving seat.”
