Gerard Pique confident of overcoming Real Madrid despite Barcelona's mixed form
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.
Captain Andres Iniesta refused to dwell on Barcelona's Champions League elimination as he turned his attention to Real Madrid and retaining the La Liga title.
Meanwhile, Monaco have shook the continent with their blistering performances in the Champions League this season, and will be confident of upsetting the odds having already overcome Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City. "The force of the team is not getting too worked up, or shaken", Allegri said. "Barcelona not scoring over two legs is nearly unheard of".
The final is set to take place in Cardiff on June 3.
Juventus also had the first big chance of the second half as Cuadrado fired across Ter Stegen but wide of the far post. Sergi Roberto shot wide after 21 minutes.
Barca defender Gerard Pique recognised that Juventus had deserved to go through over the two legs.
"We knew it would be a very tough game, full of hard moments because Barca are the strongest team in the world". Neymar was then booked for an apparent retaliatory charge into Pjanic, earning him a one-game suspension for accumulation of yellow cards.
He has won seven Serie A crowns with Juventus, the UEFA Cup with Parma and the 2006 World Cup with Italy, but when asked what it would mean for him to lift Europe's top club trophy, he replied: "It's a wonderful challenge for me every year".
MF Ivan Rakitic, 5 - Was not outrun in midfield as in the first leg, but could barely find any space to link with the attack or influence the game and was the first player Enrique sacrificed. The tone was becoming clear.
Lionel Messi had a somewhat off-night, missing a few guilt-edge chances including a great chance in the opening minutes.
The Dutch referee let the game flow, earning jeers from home fans who'd seen their side benefit from key decisions in the previous round's comeback against PSG. It was (Andrea) Barzagli, (Leonardo) Bonucci and (Giorgio) Chiellini who did.
FW Neymar, 5 - What a contrast to his virtuoso display here against PSG. "We played a very poor first half in Turin and that has cost us dearly".
