Juventus held Barcelona to a goalless draw at the Camp Nou yesterday night, ending their hosts' hopes of another sensational second-leg rally and advancing to the Champions League semi-finals 3-0 on aggregate.

Massimiliano Allegri and his men put up a superb display in the first leg at the Juventus stadium as they won 3-0, but the atmosphere will be a lot different for them at Barcelona's home stadium today.

He almost delivered another important and rare goal, but when the right-back's effort flew just wide 20 minutes from time so did Barcelona's hopes.

In today's UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals, Barcelona meets Juventus at Camp Nou, Barcelona.

Yet Juve, as adventurous going forward as they were solid at the back, might have beaten the Spanish champions for the second time in a week.

Barcelona stepped up the pressure with a series of corners and Buffon fumbled one, but Messi ballooned over the open goal.

Juventus (4-4-1-1): Buffon (Gk); Dani Alves, Bonucci, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic; Cuadrado, Dybala, Mandzukic; Higuain.

Monaco had a 3-2 lead after the first leg, which was rescheduled after Dortmund's team bus was attacked on the way to the match.

Things don't get any easier, with a trip to Real Madrid to come on Sunday, where a defeat would leave Barca six points behind their title rivals having played a game more.

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

A better chance went begging a few moments later when Messi lashed a left-footed strike wide from 15 yards after Luis Suarez's flick had set him up.

- Barcelona failed to score in both legs of a Champions League knockout game for the first time since the 2012/13 semi-final against Bayern Munich.

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. But this is what the results are when you compete a contest of a such high degree, where you must confront the most effective and now we had the happiness of beating them.

Gianluigi Buffon would prefer to not meet Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals, due to their ability to rotate in La Liga.
