In tears: The Brazilian at the final whistle.

Following the goalless second leg Champions League quarter-final draw at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night, Juventus celebrated a 3-0 aggregate victory over the Catalan giants.

Luis Enrique’s men did all they could to try and break down the Old Lady’s famed defensive wall but it was ultimately more heartache for Barca as they failed to progress through to the last four of the competition for the second successive season.


And frontman Neymar, who was emotional at the end of the match, showed once again just how much the results matter.

Although he couldn’t muster a breakthrough, these match ratings from WhoScored.com clearly emphasize he did everything within his powers to try and help Barca to another famous comeback win.

Unfortunately for the La Liga club, it wasn’t to be this time around.
