BONUCHI: All fear Juventus now after the exclusion of Barcelona

"We leave disappointed with the result but I have very little to criticize", Luis Enrique said.

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.

The only miracle seen in Barcelona this time was Juventus not getting a late goal with the Spanish side barely having legs to recover on defense.

Allegri then added: "We haven't achieved anything yet, though".

Reports in Spain claim that the absence of Messi and Pique were only precautionary as they probably ended the game against Juventus with some niggles which shouldn't prevent them for playing El Clasico.
