Barcelona fans, players, coach stay positive after CL exit

Barcelona fans, players, coach stay positive after CL exit

Juve served Barca a two-year-old dish of revenge for defeat in the 2015 Champions League final with a comprehensive 3-0 beating last week in Turin and followed it up by holding the Catalans to a goalless draw at the Nou Camp to reach the European Cup semi-finals for a 12th time.

Instead, the crowd of more than 96,000 chanted loudly in appreciation for the team's effort in trying to overturn a 3-0 first-leg loss.

"We leave disappointed with the result but I have very little to criticize", Luis Enrique said.

"A very poor first leg in Turin has put us out".

After winning the first leg 3-0, Allegri's side were able to hold off Barcelona's last-ditch attempt to qualify and they are now just three games away from possibly winning the competition.

Juventus also had the first big chance of the second half as Cuadrado fired across Ter Stegen but wide of the far post, reports Sport24.

We have belief in ourselves, because scoring three goals against Barcelona and keeping a clean sheet at the Nou Camp shows we are a great team.

Juventus right-back Dani Alves has revealed the advice he gave to a sobbing Neymar in the aftermath of Wednesday's 0-0 Champions League quarterfinal second-leg tie with Barcelona.

He believes the fact Atleti are not pushing for the La Liga title will allow Simeone to rest his kep players to ensure they are peak condition for Champions League matches. "It makes me proud". Now on their way to a record sixth consecutive Serie A title and a third successive league and Cup double, Juve can also target an unprecedented club treble-last achieved by an Italian club by Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

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.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon feels it may be in his side's interest to avoid facing Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.

Neymar, who led Barcelona with two goals and two assists in the comeback against PSG, was in tears after the game against Juventus.

"I have some mixed feelings", said Alves, who played for Barcelona from 2008-16.

"To see my friends sad hurts a lot".
