"They were very good in replacing Neymar".
Valverde replaced Luis Enrique in the Camp Nou hotseat for this season, having led Espanyol, Villarreal, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao against the Catalan giant over the past decade. "The referee's got that one absolutely right". Cavani whiffed on his shot, but Mbappe was in perfect position to pounce and bring the score to 2-0. He feels no pressure when he is compared to the best in the world.
However, he did take his time to make an impact.
The Argentinian is being increasingly tipped to fill Messi's boots - for club and country - but he says that is the last thing on his mind.
"People look at transfers and decide if a squad is stronger or weaker, but the time to do that is at the end of the season".
Juventus' visit in the Champions League tonight could have offered the chance of a new start and revenge for last season's quarter-final defeat by the Italian champions.
It's not difficult to envision two number 10's playing in the same team.
Barcelona Predicted lineups: Ter Stegen; Alba, Umtiti, Pique, Semedo; Rakitic, Iniesta, Busquets; Dembele, Messi, L. Suarez.
Dembele, who debuted as a substitute in a 5-0 rout of Espanyol on Saturday, showed some of the speed that Barcelona wanted when they signed him, but otherwise had a subdued match. Giorgio Chiellini is likely to miss out due to a calf injury while Claudio Marchisio and Marko Pjaca remain long-term absentees. Juan Cuadrado is suspended.
But, with half-time looming, Juventus committed the fatal error of switching off while Messi had the ball on the edge of the box. And they humiliated them at the legendary Ibrox Park, with 0-5.
Juventus probable starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Buffon - Barzagli, Benatia, Rugani, Alex Sandro - Pjanic, Matuidi - Douglas Costa, Dybala, Sturaro - Higuain. In the last five matches of Juventus, they have won three matches and lost two matches.
Meanwhile, for Juventus, it is their 18th Champions League group stage campaign and the sixth in succession.
Seven goals in his last three games.
Edinson Cavani - the third member of PSG's 'MCN' front three - won and converted a penalty to put the visitors out of sight before the interval.
Barcelona beat Juventus 3-0 at the Camp Nou in their first Champions League encounter of the season thanks to an awe-inspiring performance from Lionel Messi.
