After seeing off the usually formidable Barcelona in truly convincing style last night, Massimiliano Allegri and his buoyant Juventus outfit have every reason to remain confident among Europe’s most illustrious club competition.
Do the Italian giants really have what it takes to go all the way and claim Champions League glory? On the back of last night’s performance, such a potential outcome remains far from a distant pipe dream…
Their recent home record over the past few seasons certainly paints Juventus out in a rather promising light…
Juventus haven't lost at home in any competition since August 2015(48 games):-

…and after recording an inspiring first leg victory last time out against Barcelona…

…it remains difficult to envisage the La Liga favourites performing yet another dramatic comeback…
Barcelona conceded more goals tonight (3) than Juventus have (2) during their entire Champions League campaign this season.

Yet perhaps there’s an obvious reason as to why Juventus were so successful on the night…
Del Piero "Barcelona? 3 phenomenal players are not enough, you need to have a team. Tonight Juventus played like a team."

It’s a performance that has seen a great deal of praise pointed in the way of the Italians…
Juventus' squad depth is absolutely unreal don't have a weakness in their starting XI could and should go all the way

As Juventus currently play host to one of the most stringent defences in the whole of world football…
The thing about 'Oh but Barcelona came back to win vs PSG' is that Juventus have conceded only 2 so far in the CL and have Gandalf in goal.

…who’s to say that the Serie A leaders don’t have what it takes to finally go all the way this season?
If Juventus win the UCL i aint even gonna be mad. Buffon deserves one before he retires. #Legend

They represent a truly promising bet to claim Champions League glory in 2017!
Juventus could win the Champions League if Barca don't fix the 2nd leg
