Vital View - Champions League, 9th-10th May 2017

The Champions League season continued with the semi-final second leg ties played in midweek.

Juventus saw off Monaco, booking a place in the Champions League final where the Bianconeri will face holders Real Madrid, beaten on the night by Atletico Madrid but advancing from this Madrid derby to a third final in four years.

Here's a round-up of the Champions League action.


Juventus 2-1 Monaco 19:45

Wednesday 10th May 2017 - CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - SEMI-FINALS
Atlético Madrid 2-1 Real Madrid 19:45

Juventus, two up from the first leg, secured a third Champions League final in three seasons with a 2-1 win over Monaco in Turin, securing a 4-1 aggregate victory. That 2015 final was lost 3-1 against Barcelona, another Spanish club will be faced in Cardiff as Juve aim for a first triumph in Euro since 1996, on that occasion overcoming Ajax on penalties.

If Atletico Madrid were to turn the 3-0 first leg deficit around they would need something special. This looked possible with the host two up inside 20 minutes but Real Madrid weathered the Atleti storm, a 2-1 defeat on the night saw them through 4-2 on aggregate.

So, it'll be a Juventus-Real Madrid final, what a contest this could be in Cardiff as holders, Real, look to create history, becoming the first club to defend the competition in the Champions League era.

Who was the MotM? That's what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.
