Barcelona 0-0 Juventus (agg 0-3), UEFA Champions League RESULTS: Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar foiled by stubborn Old Lady defense


Miracles don’t usually come in twos and so it proved with Barcelona knocked out of the Champions League by Juventus, unable to claw-back the 3-0 first leg defeat.

Barcelona had made much in the build-up to the game of the fact that all their home games in the Champions League this season had given them a result that would qualify them. But the Old Lady was not spooked.

Why would she be? With Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci immense in front of the evergreen Gianluigi Buffon there was no way through. Barcelona could not score once, let alone three times.
