The Catalan giants went out of Europe's premier competition after losing 3-0 on aggregate against Juventus in the quarterfinals.

The Serie A giants have been draw against AS Monaco in the semi-finals and the Spanish defender has backed the Italians to win the competition.

“To see Camp Nou like that after a defeat fills me with pride as a Cule,” Pique was quoted as saying by Squawka.

“It was difficult to overturn the first leg result and we did have several chances that we were unable to convert into goals. As time wore on, it became increasingly unlikely we’d achieve our objective.

“Juve know how to defend very well and today they proved that. The Bianconeri played a style of football that is suited to them and did it very well.

“Over the two legs, Juventus played better than we did and deserved to go through to the semi-finals. I wish them all the best going forward and I think they can win the Champions League this season.”
