Until next time, it is adios and take care!
...
It was a fantastic game of football from a neutral's perspective and it was a pleasure to bring you all the action live from Turin. This is Shaurya Vineet signing off. In case you have any comments or feedback, feel free to get in touch with me on Twitter @ShauryaVineet.
...
Messi, Suarez and Neymar all tried to assert their dominance on the game but had limited or no success. Chiellini hit the sucker punch for the home side and this tie is surely all but over. We still have the second leg to be played next week and Luis Enrique's style have a huge task on their hands, especially as Juventus have conceded only 2 goals so far in the campaign.
...
The Catalan's lack of width was exploited excellently by Juventus in the first half and Dybala - who has often been touted as Messi's successor - scored two good goals give his side the perfect start against the Blaugrana.
...
But certainly a 3-0 comeback against the reigning Italian champions is too much, even for Messi and co.
...
Juventus have recorded an incredible 3-0 win over Barcelona, which puts them in the driving seat to earn a spot in the semi-final fo the competition. Barcelona are down, one could say they are out also, but given the comeback against PSG, you can never rule them out.

...
90+5' FULL-TIME Juventus 3-0 Barcelona
...
93' Mandzukic is down holding his left thigh, could be his hamstring. 
...
Barcelona are minutes away from another damaging defeat.
...

...
90' 4 minutes of added time.
...
89' Substitution: Final change for Juve as Barzagli comes on in place of Pjanic.
...
87' Messi and Neymar stand over it. It is the Argentine who takes it but crashes it against the wall and the ball falls to Suarez who wins a corner.
...
86' Rincon brings down Leo Messi and Barca have a free-kick in a dangerous position. Can Barca do some damage?
...
5 minutes plus added time left in the game.
...
Barcelona are attacking with renewed intent suddenly. They look to have realised that a goal now will tilt the tie in their favour.
...
83' Alex Sandro is airborne after trying to beat Messi to an aerial ball. The defender takes some time but finally gets up.
...
82' Substitution: Rincon comes on to take the place of tonight's man of the match Paulo Dybala.
...
81' Messi has the ball inside the Juve box, he lifts it over the Juve defence for Umtiti to head home but the Frenchman cannot get on the end of it and another chance goes begging.
...
78' Barcelona have a free-kick and Suarez hits it with some venom as it was traveling with speed towards the top right corner and forced Buffon to punch it away.
...
75' Roberto finds Suarez on the edge of Juve's box but the Uruguayan's shot is way over the target. Barcelona need a goal and they need it now.
...
74' Yellow Card: Khedira is booked by the referee for trying to buy a decision.
...
73' Substitution: Lemina comes on to replace Cuadrado
...
73' Juventus have the ball into the back of the net but the linesman has his flag up. Cuadrado latches on to the ball and takes it with him into the back of the net but the referee had his flag up for the penultimate pass and replays confirm IT IS THE WRONG DECISION.
...
71' Bonucci is furious after Gomes fouls Higuain. Before that Roberto's face had connected with Mandzukic's high boot and the two were down for a minute.
...
69' Suarez appeals for a hand ball after Neymar's shot from the edge of the box hits Chiellini's face and then his arms but the referee waves away the protests.
...
68' HOW DID THAT GO WIDE? Messi has the ball and he evades a challenge before threading an inch-perfect through ball, the Uruguayan takes a shot on the turn and it is just wide.
...
66' Juve have a free-kick down the left after Dybala is fouled by Mascherano. It is swung in but Barcelona win a free-kick now for a foul on Pique.
...
64' YELLOW CARD: Mandzukic is booked for his foul on Roberto.
...
62' Roberto clatters into Mandzukic while chasing a long ball. He goes down clutching his face and the Croatian is holding his leg. The referee has his card out, who will be booked?
...
61' Messi is trying to make things happen as he runs across the edge of the Juventus box. His attempt to find Suarez in the box is inutile an dJuve clear once again.
...
It is not allover for Barcelona given that an away goal now would completely change the complexion of the tie. Barcelona need to believe.
...
The shoulders of the Barcelona players have dropped, they seem to have given up here. Sad to see that.
...
57' YELLOW CARD: Iniesta is the next name to go into the referee's books for a poor challenge on Pjanic.
...
Juventus were threatening and Higuain had just missed a sitter. But the Old Lady win a corner and the ball is swung it, Chiellini rises above Mascherano and heads it towards the far post, it crashes against the post and goes in. GAME OVER?
...
56' GOAL! Chiellini makes it 3-0 for Juventus
...
54' MISS! Higuain is played through on goal by a brilliant over the top ball, he is yards clear and takes ages to take his shot which is straight at Ter Stegen and Barcelona survive.
...
54' YELLOW CARD: Luis Suarez is booked for a foul on Dani Alves.
...
53' Cuadrado has the ball down the right, Higuain hangs back and waits for the ball, he gets it and tries to place it into the bottom right corner but Ter Stegen is there.
...
52' Suarez marauds down the left wing and holds on to the ball before Roberto makes a run into the box, he tries to find the Spaniard but it is slightly off and Juve clear.
