Gerard Pique said Juventus "built a mountain" as the Italian side claimed a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou to keep Barcelona quiet for 180 minutes across two legs, and knock them out of the Champions League.

"Bearing in mind the opponent could have chances and the goal can come at any moment, our objective is to score five", he told a press conference yesterday. We can not afford to lose patience if the goal does not come. We were under the normal amount of pressure here, but it was a decisive step on the road to Cardiff.

Monaco, looking to become the first French side in the Champions League semi-finals since Lyon seven years ago, are missing the banned Fabinho as well as Djibril Sidibe, who is recovering from appendicitis. They weren't flawless at the back - Lionel Messi probably should've scored in the 19th minute, but dragged his volley wide - but they didn't lose their cool, and looked consistently unsafe on the counter-attack.

"We will do everything possible and we need everyone together until the 95th minute".

In total Buffon has kept a clean sheet 61 times in Europe, a percentage of 41.49 of all the games he has played.

"Little-by-little we started to create chances, but they built a mountain".

Furthermore, the result means the reigning Serie A champions have now conceded just two goals in 10 European matches this term.

A tearful Dybala was consoled and bailed out by his captain that night as Messi scored the only goal in a 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over Uruguay last September.

"We will go to the Bernabeu to compete and try to win".

Dortmund skipper Marco Reus pulled a goal back early in the second half but Valere Germain came off the bench to put the seal on a famous win for a brilliant young Monaco side, who go through to the last four for the first time since 2004. I wish them the best until the final, I believe they can win it.

"If we overcome Barca, and I hope we do, then I think we'll be eliminating the best team in the world".

Enrique believes his players need the vociferous backing of the Camp Nou crowd to have a chance in overturning the three goals deficit.
