Juventus historically likely to qualify for Champions League final

Isaac Mcdaniel | 10 May, 2017, 04:18

Juventus are the clear favourites to progress to the finals of the Champions League as no French team has ever beaten them on their own soil in European competition.

Massimiliano Allegri: "We must not think that we are through because of the result of the first leg - we must treat this like a single knockout match".

Monaco were poor in the first leg and as a result they need to score at least 2 goals away from home if they have any chance of making the second leg a contest. The Serie A champions hold a two goals lead at the moment thanks to Gonzalo Higuain's brace in the first leg.

They have only conceded two goals in their 11 games in the competition this season, neither of which were from open play, and Monaco would need to score at least twice in order to have a chance to advance.

"Playing a final is enough motivation for me", Alves said. The other semifinal between Real and Athletico looks as though Real will advance, so we will most-likely see the same final as we did 21 years ago. Today's clash will be the final European game at the Vicente Calderon because Atletico move to the new 67,000-capacity Wanda Metropolitano next season.

Most players would have scored an own goal in this situation, but Giorgio Chiellini isn't most players. Our objective is to reach the final and we'll have to be at our best. Coach Zinedine Zidane made nine changes to his side but they still thrashed already relegated Granada 4-0 at the weekend with James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata scoring doubles.

"At this time we've only reached the Coppa Italia final".

Monaco started brightly as they began the thankless task of trying to breach the Juve defence and the home side's 39-year-old keeper Buffon flapped at Bernardo Silva's cross in the first minute, although nobody was on hand to take advantage.

"Over nine months if you play every game, sometimes you are empty by the end of the season".

The Dani Alves show will carry on all the way to Cardiff. For this to happen they have to break Juventus' four-year unbeaten streak at home in Europe and a run of six clean sheets, which include two against a rampaging Barcelona side.

Monaco coach Jardim praised the efforts of his young side, who now have the Ligue 1 championship firmly in their sights.

I'll start, perhaps, with the championship of Italy, where Juventus remains the sole leader and without difficulties is approaching the sixth consecutive champion title. Play an aggressive game, play well technically and even better than we did in Monaco, where we were often wrong, with more patience.
