Cape Town - Roy Keane believes Juventus have already secured their place in the Champions League semi-finals with the 3-0 win over Barcelona on Tuesday. 

The Bianconeri cruised to a comfortable win in the first leg of their quarter-final tie after Paulo Dybala netted a brace against the Blaugrana, and Giorgio Chiellini added a third.

Barcelona pulled off a sensational comeback in the second leg of their last-16 tie against PSG, overturning a four-goal deficit. However, Keane doesn't think Juventus will implode like the Ligue 1 side did.

The former Manchester United midfielder told ITV: "They always seem to be in the mix every year, whatever players they sell they reinvest it well, they buy top quality, they've got a lot of experience in their team.

"Barcelona still look sharp going forward but at the back they were awful and this game is over. The tie is over. No chance (of a PSG style comeback).

"They can sit in and on top of all that they still carry a goal threat even from set-pieces."
