Gianluigi Buffon targets Champions League glory as Juventus knock out Barcelona

But this is what happens when you compete in a competition of such a high level, where you have to face the best and today we had the happiness of overcoming them.

And when Barcelona did get through, veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was on hand to prevent anything from going in as Juventus drew 0-0 at Camp Nou on Wednesday to progress to the semifinals 3-0 on aggregate. "Ask the others, who probably now won't want to meet us", Bonucci said.

Juventus join Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco in Friday's last-four draw (from 11:00 BST).

"We had a lot of shots on goal but only had one on target".

Barca will be without Neymar at the Bernabeu through suspension and the Catalans will need Lionel Messi back in top form as the Argentine was off target with the only two clear chances the hosts created on Wednesday.

"They are Italians, they know how to defend well and they are specialists in that area".

Juventus added another goal in the second half in Italy to leave Barcelona in what proved to be an impossible position.

"We needed to be more calm and more lucid".

Conte's Juventus took part to two Champions League campaigns: the first one ended in the quarter-finals against Bayern Munich, the second one ended in the group stages with Juventus that were also eliminated from the Europa League semi-finals in the 2013/14 campaign.

Looking back at Barcelona's 2015 Champions League victory which came after an impressive 3-1 performance and fast forward two years to the very minute we have been in right now, a distressing fact stays that Barcelona's lineup went through practically no changes in any respect.

His former club, meanwhile, face an uphill battle to win any silverware after their elimination as they trail Real Madrid by three points in La Liga before the weekend's Classico.

"My players were extraordinary tonight".

Dani Alves has expressed how hard he found inflicting Champions League elimination on Brazilian compatriot and former Barcelona teammate Neymar. "It's a great opportunity", he added. "We were solid, keeping a clean sheet against them is no mean feat".

"Very few times I've seen the Camp Nou like this after a loss", defender Gerard Pique said.
