No Barcelona comeback as Juventus reach CL semis

No Barcelona comeback as Juventus reach CL semis

Barca had overcome a 4-0 first-leg deficit against Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 with a dramatic 6-1 win back on home soil. We tried everything until the end and kept fighting to create chances but none of them went in. Giorgio Chiellini then made a typically concrete block just as the ball seemed set up for Luis Suarez to shoot, before Messi - of all people - then squandered the chance of the first half by screwing the ball wide. "Scoring three in the first leg and not conceding at the Camp Nou is the evidence that we are a great team. We have to get ready and compete and I am sure we will do that". Barca fans were really disappointed and it is the right time for Barcelona to come back on the track and take revenge on Juventus in today's second leg.

"The self-belief of the team has grown a lot", said Allegri. They defend to perfection, they're compact, they handle each phase with experience and they attack with a quality they didn't previously have.

At the other end, Higuain and Juan Cuadrado came close to breaking Barca hearts with a crucial away goal but lacked the required finishing to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Even though the odds are stacked against Barcelona to advance to the semifinals, they could win the match.

Having now avenged their 2015 Champions League final loss to Barcelona, Juventus also leads the Italian league and has lined up an Italian Cup final against Lazio.

The Blaugrana had 19 shots, with just one on target over the 90 minutes, as well as 65 percent possession, and a distinct lack of creativity in the final third extinguished any chance of a comeback.

"We started growing a few years ago and we need to continue on it", added the goalkeeper.

This evening, though, Neymar must again show why many pundits believe he has at least drawn level in another major contest - the battle with club-mate Lionel Messi and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to be the world's best player.
