Champions League: what I told Neymar after the game - Dani Alves

Champions League: what I told Neymar after the game - Dani Alves

Juventus qualified for the Champions League semi-final after beating Barcelona 3-0 after a three-point win in Turin, and a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou yesterday. The Brazilian spent eight years in Barcelona before joining Juventus as a free agent last summer. "Fly Juve Fly" was the front page headline on Italy's biggest-selling sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, which included a vignette showing teary-eyed Barca star Neymar being comforted by former club defender Dani Alves.

Juventus club shares in Milan Milan rose more than 80 percent after qualifying for the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday, newspaper reports said.

Lionel Messi was unable to inspire his team to a PSG-esque comeback as Barcelona drew blanks in both legs against the Italians' formidable defensive unit. To which Juventus replied: "Thank @FCBarcelona, it's an honor to beat such a great opponent".

Juventus claimed an impressive 3-0 aggregate win over Barcelona while Monaco defeated Borussia Dortmund 6-3.

Barcelona will be without the suspended Neymar against Madrid at the Bernabeu, where it has won two of the last three games against Madrid, including 4-0 last season.

"Some of my Atletico-supporting friends have told me they would rather lose in the semi-finals than play Real Madrid in another final", Schuster told Marca.

The Catalan club is still fighting for the title in the Spanish league and in the Copa del Rey this season.

While Allegri applauded the achievement of keeping a clean sheet against Barca, he believes there's more to come.

Barcelona's failure to breach the Juve defence was not for the want of trying. But the lads need to realize they can do even better. We always prove our label as favourites.

"We haven't achieved anything yet, this match wasn't a goal but a step towards the final in Cardiff", Allegri said. "Instead, we should aim to improve it".

With the draw set to take place on Friday, Bonucci says Monaco, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid will in all likelihood want to avoid the Serie A leaders. The Germans have stopped Juve in their tracks twice in recent seasons, at the quarter-final stage in 2013 then again in the last 16 previous year.
