Ferdinand: Chiellini and Bonucci the Juventus heroes in Barcelona triumph

He had only just come on for Mbappe when he converted Lemar s square ball with his first touch with nine minutes to go, as Monaco join Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the semi-final draw.

Juventus put on a masterclass of defensive football to reach the Champions League semifinals on Wednesday, frustrating Lionel Messi and earning a 0-0 draw against a Barcelona side hoping for another miraculous comeback.

Alves was seen comforting a tearful Neymar post-match as well as the Brazilian declared it was distressing inflicting anguish on Barca, where he won six LaLiga titles and three Champions League crowns among others before leaving last season.

Gonzalo Higuain (5): Could have had a goal or two in the first half had he taken his chances better. "The team defended very solidly tonight".

"When Andrea Barzagli came on, it felt like we could have played for a whole day and not conceded", said Allegri and perhaps even the Barcelona players would find it tough to disagree.

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. On Sunday we have a big game - it's the business end of the season.

Gerard Pique says he is confident Barcelona can return to form with a victory over Real Madrid in El Clasico this weekend.

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

Juventus who have qualified for the last four of this competition for the second time since 2003 erected a superb defend line to hold on to a clean sheet and keep the Catalians from scoring.

The incident occurred a week after the first leg was postponed by 24 hours after the Borussia team bus was attacked with explosives on its way to the stadium.

"Aside from the result, the belief and character of our approach was excellent and it's a good confidence booster to qualify comfortably against what remains probably the best team in the world", Buffon added.

However, he believes they are far more equipped to win the Champions League for a third time than when they lost to Barca in the final two years ago. I will remember that first half there forever and ever ... Paolo Dybala, who played through the centre, struggled to be involved in the game like the game in Turin as he was crowded out every time he tried to initiate an attack through the middle.
