Juventus secured a comfortable win against Barcelona in Tuesday’s only quarter-final Champions League match after the Dortmund-Monaco fixture was postponed a day, APA reports quoting AA.
In Germany, the Borussia Dortmund team coach was hit by three minor explosions on the way to the match and defender Marc Bartra was injured.
However, a brace of goals from Argentine Paulo Dybala and a header from Giorgio Chiellini in Turin left the Catalan side facing a battle to overcome a three-goal deficit in the second leg on April 19.
Dybala gave Juve an early lead after 7 minutes when he swivelled and curled a shot in and 15 minutes later he scored a stunning second when he bent his shot around the Barcelona defender.
Juve’s third came in the 55th minute when veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini headed home from a corner.
It sees Juve extend their unbeaten home record in Europe to 22 matches.
