Juventus kick off the match confidently but failed to create any goal-scoring opportunity.

Speaking after the match, Garcia said: “It was a game of two halves. The first half was very beautiful. Not only did we defend very well, we respected the gameplan to the letter. In the second half we didn’t exist with the ball and suffered.

“They brought on the fourth attacker and then we had to roll our sleeves up and all defend together. We didn’t concede and that’s very important when you play the first leg at home. My only regret is that we didn’t get a second when we were on top in the first half.”

The return leg will take place at Allianz Stadium on 17 March (20:00 GMT).
