Paulo Dybala signs new 5-year contract at Juventus

"We're brimming with confidence now and that'll help as we strive to achieve our targets".

Enrique was left frustrated by the similarity between Barca's poor start on Tuesday and their first-leg result in the previous round, when they lost 4-0 to Paris Saint-Germain on February 14.

It happened again for the second time in a row - Barça failed their first game in a knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League just like they did in February when faced Paris Saint Germain in France.

"We got things wrong [against Juve] - especially in the first half for us - and in the Champions League you get punished as we did with two goals", the Barca captain told TV3 after the game. As a coach it's very hard to explain, Juventus was superior to us in every way.

"I can not say what percentage our chances of progressing are".

The German team confirmed that defender Marc Bartra was injured in an incident near their hotel and required hospital treatment.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri wants to make sure his team does not get carried away with one of their best performances under his leadership.

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta insists it is still not over, despite failing to breach a water-tight Juventus backline that has leaked only two goals in nine Champions League games this season. Buffon, however, was again up to the task, and the stingy Juve defense held Barcelona at bay for the final quarter of the match.

First, Dybala executed a quick and devastating turn after receiving the ball from teammate Juan Cuadrado on the right side of the penalty area.

The Argentine, who joined Juve from Palermo in 2015, has 16 goals and eight assists in all competitions this season.

Speaking on BT Sport, Ferdinand said: "There are five or six in this team who shouldn't even be putting on the shirt, too many names to mention". "It was a great victory, achieved by everyone".

"At 1-0 we had a chance and then in the second half we had chances".

Juventus had several chances to extend its lead and finally did so when Chiellini headed in a corner off the inside of the left post.

Suarez nearly got a crucial away goal for Barcelona in the 67th but his effort hit the outside of the left post.
