"We had 13 or 14 shots, but I think only one was on target, which are the ones that tend to do damage," said Enrique.

Juventus is now in the last four for the second time in three years under coach Massimiliano Allegri.

However, he believes it is far more equipped to win the Champions League for a third time than when it lost to Barca in the final two years ago.

"The self-belief of the team has grown a lot," said Allegri.

"There are only two players who started tonight who started the (2015) final in Berlin. That says a lot of how well the club has recruited.

"We are desperate to go as far as we can and achieve something extraordinary."

Barca defender Gerard Pique conceded Juventus deserved to go through over the two legs.

"Overall they were the better team and deserved to go through," he told BeIN Sports Spain.

"Little by little we started to create chances, but they built a mountain. It wasn't to be."

Pique also called on Barca players to reward the fans' support with victory in the Clasico.

"That the fans were still singing needs to be remembered. I think it is one of the few times I have seen Camp Nou like that in a defeat. It makes me proud," he said.

"We will go to Madrid to compete and try to win.

"In the last few years it has been good to us. We are not in our best moment, but we can win."
