Champions League: Juventus deserve to go through - Luis Enrique

Champions League: Juventus deserve to go through - Luis Enrique

"I told him that it's the way things work". "It was a hard result to turn around, although we tried until the end".

The Italian club had deserved it, Enrique conceded after they went through 3-0 on aggregate with a 0-0 draw in Barcelona. "I'll keep remembering that first half at Juventus Stadium".

"We came here knowing that we are a great team and we played like a great team", Cuadrado said.

"We showed real conviction and personality to come here and play the way we did".

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. "We were solid, keeping a clean sheet against them is no mean feat".

Barcelona's comeback simply was never on the cards, with Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi having a bad night and missing every potential chance to open up the game and start an incredible comeback.

Leonardo Bonucci believes "Juventus invoke fear in others" and praised the Bianconeri's performance at the Nou Camp.

However, it wasn't enough as Barcelona's fearsome attack sputtered at the Camp Nou against the defending Italian champions.

It'll be the team's third semifinal in four years, hoping to make it a third final in four years, only this time with more positive results, losing to Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016.

Juventus fans have mocked their former boss Conte with a brilliant banner that has been exposed in front of Juventus' training centre after the Serie A giants' qualification to the Champions League semi-finals.

"We have a very good chance of reaching the Final in Cardiff and raising this trophy to the sky. That kept us from continuing in the Champions League".

"It was a clear and unmistakable victory, against a team which I still think is the strongest in the world", said the veteran Juventus captain.

"I am happy with what the lads are doing, but the key is not to maintain current form, instead we are aiming to improve it".

Juve produced two brilliant displays to see of Barcelona 3-0 over two-legs and book a place in the semi-finals of the European Cup.

Monaco joined Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the last four of Europe's premier club competition, becoming the first French team to achieve the feat since Olympique Lyonnais in 2010.

"Who don't we want to meet in the semifinals?"

"We're in the semi-final but it's not over yet", Allegri said. "We're a frightening proposition and a match for anyone".
