Juventus stand firm to eliminate Barca out of Champions League

Juventus players

Barcelona could not recover from a 0-3 first leg setback against Juventus, drawing the home fixture 0-0 at Nou Camp Stadium here on Wednesday night.

Prediction: Barcelona gets a win, but it doesn't get enough to move on.

Juan Cuadrado's energy was crucial to the clean sheet for Juventus and the winger backed up Bonucci's claim that his team had shown off their quality at Camp Nou.

Meanwhile, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said Juventus deserved to go through after his side were wasteful in the quarterfinal second leg last night. They'll need every bit of that grit and guile against a Juventus team that is much more experienced and prepared to defend a large lead against B Barcelona's attack.

"To not concede a goal in two games against Barcelona says a lot about the tactical level of the team", said Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri.

Barcelona will be without the suspended Neymar against Madrid at the Bernabeu, where it has won two of the last three games against Madrid, including 4-0 last season.

"My players were extraordinary tonight".

Messi then stung Gianluigi Buffon's palms for the first time on the half-hour mark. Mbappe and former Chelsea striker Falcao found the back of the net in the first half. Neymar soon followed him in the book for a wild tackle on Miralem Pjanic moments after the Juventus man had undercut Messi as they jumped for a ball.

Messi, Suarez, Neymar and co. fired an incredible 19 shots at goal, but only one of them was on target.

"(Barcelona) never really troubled the goalkeeper. "Even so, a goal would have changed the game", Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.

And the only negative news of the night for the Bianconeri was a yellow card for Sami Khedira that will rule the German global out of the first leg of their semifinal.

Juve have monopolised their domestic league since 2011-12 and are on course for a sixth consecutive Serie A crown this season although they have a comparatively poor record in continental competitions, winning Europe's biggest prize twice, in 1985 and 1996.

The two-time European champions are set to complete an excellent campaign.

Barca will have little time to mourn their Champions League exit as they visit arch-rivals Real Madrid on Sunday in a potential title-deciding Clasico.
