No repeat miracle for eliminated Barcelona as Juventus stand firm –
Lionel Messi, who had earlier been denied by Gianluigi Buffon, fired wastefully over the bar while Luis Suarez and Neymar also spurned chances on a night Barca were restricted to one shot on target.
Juve’s Gonzalo Higuain fired tamely at Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Juan Cuadrado missed another chance but the final whistle was celebrated wildly by the champions of Italy, who have not conceded a single goal from open play in this season’s Champions League.
The champions of Italy are 180 minutes away from the final in Cardiff on 3 June after a superb defensive performance as Barca and their formidable strike force failed to score over two legs.
When Barca did manage to carve out chances, Suarez, Messi and Neymar failed to deliver.
They had 19 shots on the night – yet only one on target as Juve avenged their defeat against the same opponents in the 2015 final.
