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.

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. We have belief in ourselves, because scoring three goals against Barcelona and keeping a clean sheet at the Nou Camp shows we are a great team.

After last week's 3-0 victory in Turin, it was Juve's attackers who were drawing the plaudits — specifically Paulo Dybala, who scored twice.

However, Juventus are experts in defending a lead in Europe and despite Barca's best efforts in an intense 90 minutes even players of the quality of Leo Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar were unable to break down Juventus' black and white wall.

"They have just come up short in the last week or two".

"We had 13 or 14 shots, but I think only one was on target, which are the ones that tend to do damage", added Enrique.

Whatever your opinion of this Barca side - and, after their exit, people have been every bit as quick to declare this the end of an era as they were in 2013 - the club went into the game with a flawless record at the Camp Nou in Europe.
