Juventus 3-0 Barcelona. This was a highly-anticipated clash between two of Europe’s big clubs in Turin, with the ultimate goal being a berth in the semi-finals. Coming into Tuesday’s first leg, Juventus were unbeaten in their last 17 UEFA Champions League home matches. Their last home defeat was to Bayern Munich on 10 April 2013. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi looked to impose his influence in this first leg, as he tries to elude the attentions of Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic.
Juventus are in the driver’s seat to reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals after a well-earned 3-0 home win over Barcelona in their quarter-final, first leg, clash on Tuesday evening.
A first-half brace by Paulo Dybala led the Italian giants to an important result in Turin, with Giorgio Chiellini heading home early in the second half for a convincing victory before the decisive second leg in Barcelona next week.
Tuesday’s other quarter-final, first leg, between Borussia Dortmund and Monaco was postponed following a security incident in Germany and will be played on Wednesday 12 April at 18.45 CET.
