The key will be to be clinical in front of goal. 3-0 will take it to extra-time, 4-0 would be flawless, but just one Juve goal would leave Barca needing five. "Those who experienced the night against PSG at Camp Nou will have another chance to enjoy a historic evening", BBC quoted Enrique as saying.

"Scoring three in the first leg and not conceding at the Camp Nou is the evidence that we are a great team, a great group".

The task was already tough for Dortmund with Monaco already leading 3-2 on a hard night at Signal Iduna Park last week through an Mbappe double and a Sven Bender own goal. The momentum they built against PSG didn't surface here, with the visitors adept at taking the sting out of the game.

No team has ever overturned a 3-0 first-leg defeat in the Champions League knockout stages in eight previous attempts, although Barcelona managed the biggest ever comeback in the last round by eliminating Paris SG 6-5 on aggregate after a 4-0 first leg defeat.

Former Juventus manager Marcello Lippi believes the Bianconeri are the superior side to Barcelona because they are a more balanced team.

"It's different. So far the feeling is a bit odd, bittersweet, by the fact that there have been so many things lived here and then you have to come back as an adversary", Alves said.

Lionel Messi twice missed the target with gilt-edged opportunities in either half but in the end, Barcelona left themselves with too much of a mountain to climb after being humbled last week. Our chances of going through?

Of the result, Alves continued: "Neither in their worst dreams [for Barcelona] or in my greatest dreams I did envision this might occur".

"The other day my father told me one thing which has stayed in my head, and I think it's true".

Juventus have no real injury or suspension issues to deal with ahead of this match. "There are only two players who started tonight who started the final in Berlin". Paulo Dybala was the breakout star from the performance.
