Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella scored in each half as Juventus beat Celtic FC 2-0 to qualify for the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals with a convincing 5-0 round of 16 aggregate triumph.

Juventus, who have not conceded a goal in the competition since matchday three, had already done most of the work in the first leg when they won 3-0 at Celtic Park, a result that allowed coach Antonio Conte to rest several players. Celtic tried to mount an unlikely comeback but fell behind on the night to an opportunistic Matri strike on 24 minutes before Juve doubled their lead 20 minutes into the second half. Quagliarella rounded off a nice team move to complete a victory that takes them into the last eight for the first time since 2005/06.

We will wait for the draw to see who we get in the next round. We must never forget that the Champions League is a tough competition.

I hope the players have learned a lot and move on with their careers. They've done the club proud. I'm very proud to be in this magnificent arena and I hope these young guys blossom from this experience.

    Quagliarella (Juventus) scores!
    Andrea Pirlo plays a superb diagonal pass over the head of Emilio Izaguirre which Arturo Vidal controls on his chest. Vidal slides the ball to his left, taking Fraser Forster out of the game and allowing Fabio Quagliarella the simplest of finishes to make the score 2-0 on the night and 5-0 on aggregate.
