Sensi has personality and class of a great player; Barella presses and fights for three. After passing their Barcelona test, both will look Juventus directly in the eyes without a drop of fear
Trembling legs playing at the Camp Nou? Oh please, it’s anything but. Nicolo Barella and Stefano Sensi once again confirmed their great quality facing 90 thousand screaming fans against Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday night. In short, they both passed the test with flying colors.
In the house that belonged to the idol Xavi and the phenomenon Iniesta, Sensi proved to have the right personality and class that all great players have. He was virtually everywhere when Inter attacked and often sacrificed himself to put pressure on Busquets, the midfield director of the Spanish club.
Barella came close to score but the desperate block of Semedo prevented the young Italian to have a lot of joyful tears that day. As always, he fought, clawed and pressed for three, despite having a yellow card pretty early on in the game. Nicolo did not stop, he put his teammates on his shoulders and pulled them forward, limited the freedom of Arthur and De Jong.
On Sunday night, there will be another test in the name of Juventus. And the same will also happen: Sensi and Barella will look the Old Lady directly in the eyes without shaking their legs.
