I think with our current form it would still be up to fate: if we played at home first we would stand a chance... If we played away first we would most likely be eliminated...
Messi even said in an interview after the game that he was not injured, so were these excuses are coming from, I do not knowm

Yes their front 3 is best in the world but that's probably it..
In midfield they got..Busquets,Iniesta,Rakitic...
We have thiago,vidal and martinez..yes,pep said once benatia and badstuber return martinez won't play CB..So..Iwould take martinez over busquets any day any time any where..Vidal is slowly coming in form and is a far stronger mentally tougher and able player than rakitic,this rakitic can do nothing that our king arturo can't...And Iniesta is 31 years old...our thiago can outrun him anyday..thiago contributes to defence too..and dare I say thiago's skillset is equal to iniesta..even if not..just a but less you say ..still our midfield is overall better..who do they have as subs?**** sergi roberto..we have Gotze..Rafinha alcantara is not a cause of worry for Bayern I am sure and Costa can play central too...then we have Alonso and they have no one..
In defense "Alves-Pique-Mascherano-Alba is a pretty good defense" yes it is and that's all it is..Alves is not world class in defense..neither is Alba..Our fullbacks are (I know formations don't matter to Pep but still..traditionally!)Captain Lahm and David Alaba....Even an off-form lahm is doing better than Alves and Alaba>>>>>>>>>>Alba..in what you ask?
In defenseon the ball as well as off the ball Alaba is far better in positioning,Interceptions,Tackling..everything..
Over central defenders are Boateng and Beatia/Badstuber...FAR more solid defenders than Pique..Pique is a very good defender no doubt but not better than boateng its easy to compare them because both are similar kinds of defenders in pep's system..If you say messi humiliated Boateng then I will post 3 SEAPARATE VIDEOS of OUR Robben humiliating Pique..
Mascherano and Benatia/Badstuber I don't wanna compare ..both are very good and of different types..Nobody can say one is better than the other..
its like saying Pizza is better than noodles..
And as far as goalkeepers go they have MATS and Bravo we have Neuer..I don't need to elaborate on this..
I left a point about attackers but it is proving too tempting..Obviously..lets take their names first..Messi,Suarez,Neymar..done with it..Our fully fit attack line is Robben,Muller,Lewa..I know it sounds weird but Lewa and Muller ave scored more goals than Suarez and Neymar..they are getting far more hype and credit just because they are barcelona..but we all know how good Muller is he has a position and role as his patent...neymar has none..neither has suarez..And..they contribute more defensively too..But still their attack is better right?WRONG!
Here is the trump card..In the Line up I have suggested we STILL have .....Coman,Costa,Ribery on their bench..who do they have?Arda turan..he is better than none of them..
CONCLUSION:We are the better team on the paper..Yes we should respect barca but not fear them..If both sides are full strength we are the favourites not them..

However, unlikely due to his barca past.
The team would thrive in possession football and his budget would be enormous....
Instead of thiago coming there, he could probably get one of the verrati/pogba to join and the team would be fantastic.
Bench: danilo. pepe, marcelo, casimero, jese, asenjo/
Or he could play a back 3 and buy gaya as a wingback with carvalj on the other side. Purchase laporte too
