Pjanic: 'Tough game against Juve'

Miralem Pjanic says it will be tough to face Juventus in Turin next week and insists Gerard Piqué’s red card against Ferencvaros was ‘too much.’

Pjanic, who joined Barcelona from Juventus in the summer, will make an early return to the Allianz Stadium to face the Old Lady on October 28.

“Now we think about the Clasico, our next game, then it’ll be Juventus turn,” Pjanic told Uefa after Barcelona’s 5-1 win against Ferencvaros at the Nou Camp.

“It will be important and also difficult, but we are ready.”

The Catalans will be without their captain Gerard Pique who was sent off last night.

“I think it was too much, it’s the only bad news of the evening, but we have to accept it.

"However, we are happy with the game. It’s important to start the Champions League well, this is a competition that we really like.”
