Barcelona fans, players, coach stay positive after CL exit

There were no boos or jeers at the Camp Nou after Barcelona's elimination to Juventus in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

As the final seconds slipped away on Wednesday night, flags waved all around Camp Nou and the Barcelona fans sang. He was consoled by former teammate and fellow Brazilian Dani Alves, who now plays for Juventus.

Atletico Madrid supporters would rather go out in the Champions League semi-finals than suffer the prospect of a potential third final defeat to rivals Real Madrid, according to Bernd Schuster.

Barcelona couldn't produce another historic comeback, thanks to Juventus' stout defence and the poor finishing of its attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

Massimiliano Allegri's men moved closer to winning the competition after securing a 0-0 draw against the Spanish giants on Wednesday night.

"They defended as a great team and showed that they're built to win the Champions League". Now on their way to a record sixth consecutive Serie A title and a third successive league and Cup double, Juve can also target an unprecedented club treble-last achieved by an Italian club by Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

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

Barcelona will be without the suspended Neymar against Madrid at the Bernabeu, where it has won two of the last three games against Madrid, including 4-0 last season.

Buffon admits the clean sheet in the second leg against Barcelona came as a surprise - and is the ideal boost the players need going into the crucial final month of the season. "We are slowly improving", Allegri told Mediaset Premium.

"I'm annoyed we couldn't win the game because we tried with all our strength but we couldn't find the path to their goal".

Real Madrid, aiming to win Europe's premier club competition for a 12th time, beat German champions Bayern Munich 6-3 on aggregate to reach the last four. The Germans have stopped Juve in their tracks twice in recent seasons, at the quarter-final stage in 2013 then again in the last 16 a year ago.
