Kwadwo Asamoah was a late substitute as Italian Champions Juventus held Barcelona to a stalemate at the Nou Camp to complete a 3-0 aggregate win over the Spanish champions.
Thomas Partey was an unused substitute as Athletico Madrid held Leicester City to1-1 draw  at the King Power stadium to claim a 2-1 aggregate win over last season’s surprise English champions.
