Lippi, who led Juve to their last Champions League trophy in 1996, has praised the team's disciplined defense and ever-improving attack ahead of their quarter-final second-leg clash with Barcelona.

And so it proved at the Nou Camp as Barcelona failed to score, with a lack of composure from their fearsome forward trio of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi an issue throughout the game, as well as Juve's class in defence.

Juventus advanced to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League with a 3-0 aggregate win over Barcelona, while Monaco progressed with a 6-3 defeat of Borussia Dortmund across two legs.

Juventus' last trip to the Camp Nou to face Barcelona ended in a 2-1 win, back in April 2003, courtesy of goals from Pavel Nedved and Marcelo Zalayeta.

If Barcelona are to do the impossible in the quarter-final as well, after losing 3-0 in Turin, they will need the winger to be at his electric best. "They're a team that know how to defend perfectly".

Juventus join holders Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco in Friday's semifinal draw. "Even so, a goal would have changed the game", Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.

Juve - unchanged from the first leg - threatened twice early on as they searched for an away goal, Gonzalo Higuain firing over from a decent opening, while Juan Cuadrado hooked an acrobatic attempt off-target.

The Catalans did have a number of chances, with talisman Lionel Messi missing a sitter from inside the box in the 18th minute the moment Juventus held their breath but the Argentine flashed his shot just wide.

They created enough chances to score five, too, but their accuracy was lacking.

The organizers are encouraging scientists to wear their work clothes-scrubs, lab coats, field gear, safety glasses, etc. On Twitter , Caroline Weinberg and other researchers expressed their concerns about the attacks against the sciences.

Yet, he found it far harder up against friend and former Barca teammate Dani Alves and his frustrations at a perceived lack of protection from referee Bjorn Kuipers spilled over as he was booked just before halftime. The Colombian then had another shot turned behind by Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Enrique forlornly turned to Paco Alcacer from the bench as the host played with four forwards for the final half hour.

Their mood almost worsened just after the interval but Cuadrado, in acres of space on the right, dragged his strike across goal while at the other end Messi cut onto his left foot and fired just wide of Buffon's right hand post. Barca fans were really disappointed and it is the right time for Barcelona to come back on the track and take revenge on Juventus in today's second leg.

Wilshere setback no deal breaker, insists Wenger
Even if they win the Cup, failure to qualify for the Champions League qualification would taint any Wembley celebrations. Wenger said the FA Cup semi-final was an important game but the result would have no impact on his decision.
