A Superb masterclass second leg defending by Juventus secures them place in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions league. The two European titans first met in Italy at the first leg ten days ago where the Spanish giants lost three goals to zero, courtesy of Paulo Dybala [×2] and Chiellini’s goals.
Barcelona was expected to overturn deficit just as they did in the last 16 against PSG, but Juventus’ case was different. Admirable performance by Enrique’s boys where they possessed throughout, defended better than before, and posed more threat but lacked the logic of how to use the possession hence unable to convert the possession into goals.
Messi attempted to score a couple of times with shots on and off target whereas Neymar’s entertaining dribbles resulted into mostly off target shots. Usual goal pilferer Luis Suarez’s impact was negligible. A huge credit goes to the veteran goal keeper Gianluigi Buffon for the marvelous saves of Messi’s attempt.
