The Catalan Giants came into tonight’s match three goals behind and missed a host of chances on a frustrating evening.
In a week that will determine much of their season, with Real Madrid to come in the league on Sunday, Barca set about overturning the deficit by peppering Gianluigi Buffon’s goal.

But the legendary keeper held firm as did the Juve defence.

Neymar produced much of Barcelona’s threat, driving forward from wide but continually snuffed out.

Lionel Messi looked off the pace and missed the target with a great chance in the first half.

Barca now need to beat Real Madrid on Sunday to go level with them at the top of La Liga – having played one game more.
