The Italian champions barely gave Barcelona a glimmer of hope of repeating its historic turnaround against Paris St Germain in the last 16 and protected their healthy advantage from the first leg by starving the hosts of space and clear sights of goal.
Lionel Messi came closest to giving Barcelona a route back into the contest with four strikes at goal but failed to hit the target with any of them and frequently came up short against Juventus's intimidating centre-back pairing of Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
Twice European champion Juventus lacked the spark and power of its thrilling first-leg victory in Turin, but there was rarely any doubt it would exact revenge for its defeat to Barcelona in the 2015 Champions League final by reaching a 12th semi-final.
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe and Radamel Falcao struck early as AS Monaco reached the semi-finals with a 3-1 home win over Borussia Dortmund to seal a 6-3 aggregate victory.
French prodigy Mbappe and Colombia striker Falcao scored in the third and 17th minutes before Marco Reus gave the visitors hope with a 48th-minute goal, only for substitute Valere Germain to wrap up the win for the French side nine minutes from time.
Monaco joined Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the last four of Europe's premier cub competition.
