France Ligue 1 leaders AS Monaco will square up with Italian league leaders Juventus in this exciting encounter.

Both teams knocked out favourites in the last round to get here and will want to progress as they both chase at least two trophies this season.

AS Monaco have had a surprisingly good Champions League campaign this season.

They have been able to knock out favourites like Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund to reach the semifinals with a very young and inexperienced team.

They lost only 2, drew two and won 5 of their last 9 games in the Champions League.

They are also currently on a run of 3 straight victories in this competition and they will be hoping to continue that streak with a win in this game especially in the home fixture.

Juventus knocked out Barcelona in the last round after their baby-faced assassin Paulo Dybala outclassed Messi and co and led them to a 3-0 victory in the first leg.

They defended stoutly at the Camp Nou and held Barce to a 0:0 tie.

The Italian league leaders are unbeaten in their last 10 Champions League games – they have achieved seven victories and three draws.

They have won 4 of their last 5 away games which should be a cause of worry for AS Monaco.

Bookmakers slightly favour Juventus in this tie – they are currently trading at odds of 2.45 while Monaco are 3.10 to win the first leg.
