LIVE: Barcelona vs Juventus Champions League

By  Football Pulp - 19 April 2017

Barcelona 0-0 Juventus (0-3 agg.)

 

Full Time 

The Italian job well done by Juve – Revenge personified. Barça was all over but Buffon had everything in control.  Messi and Co. couldn’t get past BBC and couldn’t replicate the comeback they did against PSG. Juventus were outstanding throughout in the tie and in both the legs. They were superb with the attack in the first leg and simply brilliant with the defense in the second. Adios to Barça! Juventus go through. There was something extremely pleasing and aesthetic in Juve’s side. Congratulations to Juventus!

Recap from the First Leg

Juventus pulled off a miracle in the first leg courtesy of two brilliant first-half goals before Giorgio Chiellini headed another one to make it 3-0. There’s no chance for Barça to score four goals against this Juve defense even at Camp Nou tonight. But Barça knows how to bounce back. Can they pull off a miracle against this Juve side?
