Juventus pulled off a defensive masterclass to oust Barcelona from the UEFA Champions League, on a night that many were hoping would turn into another miraculous comeback for the Catalans – given the massive feat they pulled off against Paris Saint-Germain.

This was not the case, however, as Massimiliano Allegri’s side resisted wave after wave of Barcelona’s attacks to pull off a near-perfect away performance – the only thing missing was a goal – and progress to the next round.

Barcelona put in a monumental effort but on a day that Messi, Suarez and Neymar were uncharacteristically wasteful with their chances and their possession, Juventus emerged deserved victors.

Ronaldo’s fans were out in force after Lionel Messi was unable to lead his team to a victory like the Madrid captain did the previous night against Bayern Munich.

Arsenal fans – as well as fans of other clubs – on Twitter were hugely impressed by the managerial skills of Massimiliano Allegri, who has been linked with the Arsenal job for a few months now.

Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci were also on the receiving end of a lot of praise, after their brilliant performance kept one of the best attacks in the world at bay.
