The ball didn't want to go in against Juventus, says Luis Enrique

The ball didn't want to go in against Juventus, says Luis Enrique

"Unbeatable" Juventus can finally hand goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon an elusive Champions League title after making five-time winners Barcelona "cry" on their way to a spectacular Champions League semi-final exit on Wednesday.

Allegri's men restricted Barcelona to a single shot on target in Wednesday's second leg and the coach praised the solidity of his side as they earned revenge for their final defeat to Barca in Berlin's Olympiastadion two seasons ago.

"We were fully aware that Barcelona are also very strong, but we knew that we could defend well if all the players were sacrificing together, playing as a unit, and so we did".

In the customary dressing room selfie after a great result, the Juventus players could be seen celebrating.

"This side deserves praise for how we approaches every game, whether we're playing Barcelona or Pescara", added the Italy defender, whose side have conceded two goals in 10 games in the Champions League this campaign.

Both teams will join Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in Friday's draw.

"They are a great team and in general they were better than us, they deserved to progress and I wish them the best because they can win the tournament", Pique told BeIN Sports.

Aaron Hernandez's conviction could be tossed due to 'quirky' law
When he was arrested, Hernandez was owed $3.25 million toward the signing bonus on his contract with the Patriots. The former Patriot was taken to UMass Memorial-Health Alliance Hospital and pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.

The Brazilian spent eight years in Barcelona before joining Juventus as a free agent last summer.

Even with Barcelona in full-attack mode, the same Juventus starting 11 from the first leg masterfully managed the match, bending but never breaking under the assault.

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.

It was a significant let-off for Juventus and they were forced to sit deep as Barca continued to create chances with Neymar and then Sergi Roberto - their matchwinner against PSG - volleying over.

The hosts ended the half in a foul mood after Neymar was booked for an impetuous barge on Pjanic, whose aerial challenge on Messi seconds earlier led to the Argentinian faceplanting the floor.

Gerard Pique says he is confident Barcelona can return to form with a victory over Real Madrid in El Clasico this weekend.
