Barcelona beat Juventus 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday to make it two wins from two in the competition. Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi got the goals.

Here are the player ratings: 

Neto 6 

Juve got forward at times but without really testing the goalkeeper. Morata did score three, mind, but they were all offside. 

Sergi Roberto 7 

The big games come around and there he is, on the right hand side. Worked hard, mainly in defence, pressed by Chiesa. Did well. 

Ronald Araujo 7 

Not an easy task against Morata in the air but he was strong and reliable. A shame he had to go off injured at half time. 

Clement Lenglet 7 

Dybala wasn't an easy opponent to deal with but he did well. Had to be quick and also alert with Juve pressing high. 

Jordi Alba 8 

His battle with Cuadrado was good to watch. Got forward a lot and could have scored. 

Miralem Pjanic 7 

Lacks rhythm, that's clear, because he lost too many balls. Learning quickly, though, and absorbing what's needed to succeed at Barcelona. 

Frenkie de Jong 7 

Not good in the first half. Not involved enough. Played as a centre-back after the break and did well with panoramic vision and tactical intelligence. 

Antoine Griezmann 7 

Sent one shot onto the post and created a great chance for Messi with a back-heel. Did not stop fighting, pressing and offering for the ball. Just needs a goal now. 

Pedri 8 

Reads the game like few others. Brilliant. 

Ousmane Dembele 7 

Showed why Barca have stuck with him through his injuries. A great first half, including  goal. Came off for the final 20 minutes. 

Leo Messi 9 

Great switch to set up Messi's goal and added the second from the penalty spot. The only thing missing from his game was a goal from open play. 

Substitutes

Busquets 7, Ansu 7, Junior 5, Braithwaite 5
