"I will remember that first half for ever and ever", Enrique said.

"A very poor first leg in Turin has put us out".

As the final seconds slipped away on Wednesday night, flags waved all around Camp Nou and the Barcelona fans sang.

"I'm very happy with what the guys are doing", Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said.

The 33-year-old played for Barcelona for eight seasons between 2008 and 2016, making close to 400 appearances for the Camp Nou side, winning the Champions League on three occasions. "Juventus provoke fear in everyone else and now our objective is to reach the final", Bonucci told reporters after helping shut out Barca's usually prolific attack for a second game running. "That kept us from continuing in the Champions League".

The crowd of 96,290 that packed the Camp Nou was behind the team from the start and didn't stop even after the final whistle. "It makes me proud".

Now on their way to a record sixth consecutive Serie A title and a third successive league and Cup double, Juve can also target an unprecedented club treble-last achieved by an Italian club by Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

Barcelona had defeated the Italian champion in the 2015 final to win its fifth European title.
