Juventus knock FC Barcelona out of Champions League

Barcelona vs Juventus Live Stream Score Commentary in Champions League 2017

Only twice before have teams stopped Barcelona from scoring in both legs of a Champions league knockout tie, and on both those occasions that team went on to lift the trophy.

Juventus, however, showed in the opening stages that they are made of sterner stuff than PSG, who gave up a 4-0 first-leg advantage.

But it was Monaco who had the best chances to score again after that, with Burki tipping over Almamy Toure s looping header and Falcao squandering a fine chance before substitute Germain made sure of their place in the last four.

Despite scoring 45 goals in 45 appearances for club and country - the 29-year-old has already scored more La Liga goals than last season and his tally of 11 Champions League goals is nearly double last year's figure - many have observed that off-field issues have distracted the gifted forward and Dunphy says Premier League fans would be in for a treat if he chose to move to England.

However, if they had to choose a team to avoid in the semi-finals, it would be Real Madrid. "It was a hard result to turn around, although we tried until the end".

Barca coach Luis Enrique had said before Wednesday night's game that his side would attempt to overturn the 3-0 deficit from the first leg until the very last minute of the return leg in front of their own fans and he was true to his word, reports Xinhua news agency.

Kwadwo Asamoah (N/A): Came on in the 88th minute to really help pin back the Barcelona defense.

However, I'd suggest that Leonardo Jardim would least like to face Juventus, the best balanced team left in the tournament.

Even with Barcelona in full-attack mode, the same Juventus starting 11 from the first leg masterfully managed the match, bending but never breaking under the assault. "The force of the team is not getting too worked up, or shaken", Allegri said. "The first day I got here, my only goal was to turn Atletico into a competitive team that could contend in all competitions that it played".

But Juve, who had conceded only two goals in nine Champions League matches this season before Wednesday night, proved far more disciplined at the back.

They had scored three times in the final seven minutes against PSG but there was no hint of anything similar this time as Juventus cruised into the last four.

"We knew they were coming to push us high, running a few risks at the back, but we did well to be united and compact when defending, above all thanks to Dani Alves and [Mario] Mandzukic for pressuring their full-backs", Bonucci told Mediaset Premium.
