Xavi Says Messi Should Stay His Entire Career at Barcelona

Rivaldo Exclusive: Back Barcelona to overcome under pressure Juve

Neither Suarez nor Higuain seemed to have any real impact in the game and their touches were few and far between, and Messi did not have quite the impact that many expected him to after his entry from the substitute's bench.

And Rakitic has fuelled speculation that there may still be work to do to tie Messi down at the Nou Camp.

"Messi is a part of our club's badge and I am confident he will stay".

The Italian side - which reached the final in two of the last three seasons - visits Olympiakos in the final round, while Sporting travels to Barcelona.

Max Allegri's team are clearly under some pressure to win this game and I believe that will mean they adopt an attacking approach on Wednesday. "Discretion is good [in the transfer window] but I do not think it's wrong for the president to say that we can strengthen ourselves".

Messi's future has been the matter for much debate ever since the terms of his new contract were agreed nearly five months ago.

Sinn Fein has achieved solid progress in the Republic of Ireland, according to the latest opinion polls. Michelle O'Neill, 40, was elected as Sinn Fein's leader at Stormont (Northern Ireland parliament).

The Argentina forward agreed a new deal until 2021 with the NouCamp club in July but did not sign paperwork at first.

"All the fans want to see confirmation: a picture, a handshake, just like I do. I have confidence in the president and in Leo and I know he wants to be with us".

"The only thing we can say as teammates is that we want him to stay, he has all our support and we enjoy being with him".

Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain lashed half-chances wide but Barca's control of possession was nearly unchallenged, with Juve apparently content to sit deep and hold on for the draw.

It is all square after the first 45 minutes at the Allianz Stadium where Juventus host Primera Division leaders FC Barcelona in a match that has not had too many goal scoring opportunities but the ones created have belonged to Juventus.
