Barcelona could not recover from a 0-3 first leg setback against Juventus, drawing the home fixture 0-0 at Nou Camp Stadium here on Wednesday night. Neymar had a petulant display and Luis Suarez's presence was barely felt.

As expected Barca looked to take the game to their rivals, who were happy to sit in their own half and look to hit Barca on the break.

The Italian visitors held firm at Camp Nou midweek, neutralising Barca threesome Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

There were also moments of tension after Messi fell heavily following a challenge in midfield and Neymar reacted with a challenge which earned him a booking that means he will miss Barca's next European match.

"We have to get ready to compete and I am sure we will do that".
