Gary Lineker and Steven Gerrard hammered Jeremy Mathieu
Lineker and Gerrard were scathing about the Frenchman’s performance in the 3-0 defeat to Juventus in the first leg.
Lineker said: “Mathieu has a nightmare most games he plays.
“I’m not sure how he’s a Barcelona player – but that’s just a personal view.”
Fellow BT Sport pundit Steven Gerrard agreed and said: “It’s very clear the weakness in this Barcelona team is the full-back areas.
“They’re getting murdered on both flanks. For the first goal, Mathieu is scared of Juan Cuadrado.

“He backs off lets him go to the left, to the right and it’s easy for him to pick a pass.”
Mathieu was taken off at the break of that game and has been omitted from the squad completely for the second leg.
Barca have fitness concerns around Javier Mascherano – who has been included in the squad – but Arda Turan will definitely miss out through injury. mHe joins Rafinha and Aleix Vidal on the treatment table.
Barcelona Squad: Ter Stegen, Cillessen, Pique, Rakitic, Busquets, Denis Suarez, Iniesta, Luis Suarez, Messi, Neymar, Mascherano, Alcacer, Alba, Digne, Sergi Roberto, Andre Gomes, Umtiti, Alena.
