Juventus played a goalless draw in the second leg at Camp Nou and progressed to the semifinals, after a 3-0 aggregate win.
However, it wasn't enough as Barcelona's fearsome attack sputtered at the Camp Nou against the defending Italian champions. "It would have been fair if we had won tonight (Wednesday), but Juventus deserved to advance".
But Allegri guided the team to its first Champions League final in 12 years as well as back-to-back league and cup doubles.
"Barca have a team built to compete, to win trophies and to face every challenge", said Enrique.
And when Messi did get free inside the area, Barcelona's all-time leading scorer squandered both his chances to spark a fightback.
"They would rotate less, compared to Atletico, who have a more defined position [in the table] and can manage themselves".
Barcelona forward Neymar was consoled by former teammate Dani Alves, now playing for Juventus, after the final whistle while Barcelona's fans cheered their team despite the elimination.
They have a great coach, great players and have everything it takes to win the Champions League. "We fought until the end".
Buffon believes Atleti may be their worst match-up because they are not challenging for their domestic league title like the other two are.
Juventus join holders Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Monaco in Friday's semi-final draw. A rampant 3-0 victory in the first leg was followed up by a professional and controlled 0-0 stalemate on Wednesday. Teenager Kylian Mbappe and forward Radamel Falcao struck early to put Monaco on its way.
Barcelona were unable to overturn their opponent's three-goal lead, established by Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini at the Juventus stadium last week, but Neymar had a busy evening...
The two-time European champions are set to complete an excellent campaign.
But Juventus, known for their defence, entered the Champions League semi-final as they didn't allow the star-studded Luis Enrique side--containing the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar--to score and took revenge for their defeat in the 2015 Champions League final.
