Best tweets: Juve defence leaves Messi, Suarez looking toothless

Barcelona are out of the Champions League!

Needing another comeback of epic proportions in the vein of their miraculous back-from-the dead win against PSG in the last 16, Luis Enrique’s men were not up to the task – or rather Juve’s defence was!

Try as they might, the Barcelona attack couldn’t find a way through the Juventus rearguard, for which Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon were outstanding.

The usually deadly trio of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez were left toothless, which in the case of Suarez was probably a good thing for Chiellini!

In fact, Buffon was only troubled once during the 90 minutes despite Barca firing in 19 shots.

Juve’s sterling work predictably left fans in awe on social media.
