Luis Enrique has told Barcelona fans not to leave the Nou Camp early during their Champions League quarter-final tie against Juventus... because there may be a repeat of the miracle comeback against PSG.

Trailing 3-0 after a humbling defeat in Turin, Barcelona face a monumental task in their Champions League quarter-final second leg on Wednesday. But Lionel Messi and Co have already proved themselves capable of doing the impossible this season.

A Neymar-inspired Barcelona sealed a dramatic 6-1 victory over PSG to overturn a four-goal deficit last month. More amazingly, three of their goals were scored in or after the 88th minute.

It is for that reason why Enrique, who will step down at the end of the season, is feeling confident ahead of the tie and urged his players to take advantage of being free from expectation.

'We have nothing to lose. We only have one option and that is to attack, to attack and to keep attacking,' the Barcelona coach told reporters.

'I advise the fans not to leave in the 80th minute, we saw against PSG what can happen. The comeback against PSG gives reason for optimism. 

'We needed to stay calm against PSG, but also go for it. We need fewer goals, only three, but our objective is to score five goals in case they score as well.

'We have to be effective and put pressure on them. We know what we have to do and how we want to do it. I have no doubt that at some moment we will be close on aggregate. 

'We have another chance to make history. We will give everything, right until the 95th minute. We scored three goals in three minutes, so everything is possible. I hope it is going to be a special night for everybody involved. '
