The Italian champions persevered with ten men in the extra-time period, having lost the services of Edgar Davids to two yellow card offences in the second half at Camp Nou.
An entertaining but goalless first half saw the home side have more of the chances, with Javier Saviola and Marc Overmars forcing easy saves from Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
The visitors had their chances in the opening period with Pavel Nedved shooting wide, while Alessandro Del Piero and Edgar Davids forced Barca goalkeeper Roberto Bonano to make two good saves.
Barca's dominance continued and their best chance came shortly before the break but Patrick Kluivert squandered a good opening with a poor shot wide of goal.
The second half saw Barcelona nearly take the lead but after Luis Enrique rounded Juve defender Paolo Montero, he curled his right-foot shot wide of goal.
However, the Camp Nou crowd were stunned into silence eight minutes after the break when Davids played in Nedved at the top of Barca's box.
His run and shot saw the Czech ace beat Bonano at the near post to give the Italian champions a 1-0 second leg lead, cancelling out Barcelona's away goal from the first leg in Turin.
Nedved nearly made it two on the night but his right-foot strike was brilliantly saved by a diving Bonano.
But Raddy Antic's men applied more pressure and it finally paid off eight minutes later, when Xavi got on the end of a poorly-cleared cross at the top of Juve's box to control and hammer home the equaliser past Buffon.
Barca continued to keep the pressure on Juve but Saviola, Gaizka Mendieta and Juan Roman Riquelme all missed opportunities.
Things looked glum for the visitors when English referee Graham Poll sent off Davids after he showed the Dutchman a second yellow for a dubious foul on Mendieta.
With the aggregate score level at 2-2, both sides headed for extra-time and it was not until the second period that Barca created the best chance but Buffon stopped Kluivert brilliantly from point blank range before punching a dangerous cross away moments later.
The contest's deciding moment came with six minutes left in extra-time, as substitute Alessandro Birindelli's cross from the right found an unmarked Zalayeta, who neatly touched the ball past Bonano to give Juve an improbable victory.
The result sees another Italian success over a Spanish side in the Champions League on Tuesday - with Internazionale beating Valencia on the away goals rule - and Juve will now await the winner of the Real Madrid versus Manchester United quarter final tie on Wednesday.
