Wenger, who has been a pundit for beIN SPORTS, said that Juventus have relied too heavily on Ronaldo and it showed the "players around him just aren't good enough."

And the 71-year-old Frenchman argued the same case for Barcelona's current situation with Messi.

"It's a problem that [Juve] are only relying on Ronaldo," Wenger said.

"It's the same for Messi. If the team is overly reliant on Messi, it's because the players around him are not good enough."

Juventus now have four Serie A fixtures to play before they host Porto for the return leg in Turin on 9th March.

Meanwhile, Barcelona's next round of fixtures includes four La Liga matches and their second-leg Copa del Rey semi-final clash with Sevilla.

Ronald Koeman's men will travel to the Parc des Princes on 10th March for their second-leg clash with PSG.
