The hosts played the second half at a canter as they reached the last eight for the second time in four years.


Striker Gonzalo Higuain went closest to a second when he fired wide.


Juve are joined in the last eight by English champions Leicester City, who beat Sevilla in Tuesday’s other game.


The quarter-final draw takes place on Friday.
