Can Barcelona pull off another miracle?

Can Barcelona pull off another miracle?

Twice European champions Juve lacked the spark and power of their thrilling first-leg victory in Turin, but there was rarely any doubt they would exact revenge for their defeat by Barca in the 2015 Champions League final by reaching the semis for a 12th time.

Barca of course pulled off arguably the greatest comeback of all time when they beat PSG 6-1 last month, having lost the first leg 4-0. "We'll be looking to create opportunities to score and we're certain that we have what it takes to reach the next round".

Barcelona missed the chance to equal a Champions League record when they crashed out of the competition at the hands of Juventus.

"There's only one option: Attack, attack, attack", Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.

"I did think we had a good chance of qualification after the 3-0 first leg result, but I honestly didn't believe we would come to Camp Nou and keep a clean sheet". They weren't flawless at the back - Lionel Messi probably should've scored in the 19th minute, but dragged his volley wide - but they didn't lose their cool, and looked consistently risky on the counter-attack.
