Juve's Alves expects long night at world's best Barcelona

Barcelona finds itself in the same situation today, but this time against Juve's nearly impregnable defense.

Juventus progressed to the final four of Europe's elite competition on Wednesday evening, with a 0-0 draw at the Camp Nou sealing a 3-0 aggregate win over Barcelona. And extended their clean sheet run to nearly nine hours - or 531 minutes - in the competition.

"It was a performance of great unity and solidity". We can score the first goal, the second one will be scored by the Nou Camp crowd and the third one will come on its own! We have to create the maximum number of chances and score goals. "We just failed to convert our opportunities". "It's another step in our growth process, now every opponent must worry about Juventus".

With the result, Juve is back in the Champions League semis after making it in 2015 where it lost in the final to Barca.

"I think it's not about who we do not want to face, but the fact all three of the other teams will not want to face us. Juventus provoke fear in everyone else and now our objective is to reach the final", Bonucci told reporters after helping shut out Barca's usually prolific attack for a second game running.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have another big game lined up this weekend against Real Madrid in the race for the title.

"I think we made a great knockout".

"We have the potential, the players and reason to believe we can turn this tie around or at least get close to it". And for Dybala, keeping Barca out for over 180 minutes proved a hard feat to accomplish.

While emotions of disappointment among those expecting another miracle comeback from the home team ran throughout the Barcelona stadium, Neymar was seen crying after the match.

However, the Juve stalwart has urged his team-mates to keep pushing for glory, telling BT Sport 2: "We're very happy with these small victories but what we really want to do is go all the way".

The men from Turin came with a game plan which they stuck to perfectly, defending as a unit while looking to hit Barcelona on the counter with the pace of Juan Cuadrado partnered by Gonzalo Higuain.
