Match report

It was a fiery opening to the contest with Gonzalo Higuain going close in the 14th minute when Paulo Dybala set up his compatriot who fired just wide with Marc-Andre ter Stegen concerned.

Lionel Messi missed a big chance on the 20 minute mark when in many other times he would have expected to score. Messi then went again close in the 32nd minute when Gianluigi Buffon saved his shot before the Argentina star put the ball into the side-netting.

After the interval, the South American genius then blasted over when he may have done better and then missed in the 56th minute past the post.

It wasn't the best game for the same player when he hooked over in the 68th minute after a mistake from Buffon. Two minutes later he again fired just wide after being set up by Sergi Roberto.

Neymar then conjured up a chance in the closing stages but Javier Mascherano was unlucky to see his effort saved by Buffon. There were no further scares as Juventus advanced to the next round.
