"We started growing a few years ago and we need to continue on it", added the goalkeeper.

Barca failed to find the net over two legs as Juve advanced 3-0 on aggregate after a goalless draw at the Nou Camp.

"Tonight, we saw two teams who attack".

Juventus join holders Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco in Friday's semi-final draw.

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

In the end, five-time Champions League winners didn't score one goal against Juventus after formerly placing six previous Paris Saint Germain in a thrilling comeback in the round of last 16. "Juventus provoke fear in everyone else and now our objective is to reach the final", Bonucci told reporters after helping shut out Barca's usually prolific attack for a second game running.

"Aside from our determination, which is traditionally part of the Juventus identity, we are becoming more "European" by pressing, proving unsafe in attack and controlling the game more than we did in previous years".

The story was strong and powerful ahead of Juventus battle but the eyes of Barcelona players and staff didn't hide the dearth of belief the Catalans can actually pull it away once again.

"We leave disappointed with the result but I have very little to criticize", Luis Enrique said. We were under the normal amount of pressure here, but it was a decisive step on the road to Cardiff.

We kept going until the very last minute.

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.

"To win the League, it is usual to win these games".

Dani Alves has expressed how hard he found inflicting Champions League elimination on Brazilian compatriot and former Barcelona teammate Neymar.

The word-to-word translation of the banner is: "Yesterday we were happy (contenti) in Italy, now we are cheerful (Allegri) in Europe, let's go to command".

"This squad is full of great professionals though: they're responsible and I don't need to keep them on their toes".

"This night does give me a bittersweet feeling, because coming here brings back so many good memories from my time in this stadium and to see your friends sad is an odd sensation".
