Live in-play betting – 

Juventus will be hoping to finish the work they started in the first leg with a predictable victory while Monaco would need a Liverpool-esque comeback to beat Juve at home.

Juventus are one of the in-form teams in Europe right now – they have built a team that thrives on their solid defensive ability as well as on their killer instinct in attack.

They won the first leg of this tie by 2-0, which was their 6th straight clean sheet in the competition.

They won 5 of those games including a 3-0 mauling of Spanish giants and favourites, Barcelona.

Their home form is excellent – in their past 3 matches in the Champions League, they have won with clean sheets.

AS Monaco’s 2-0 loss to Juventus in the first leg of this tie brought them down to earth and shows how much they need experience in their squad.

Prior to that game, Monaco were on a run of 3 straight wins including back to back wins over Borussia Dortmund.

They also scored 3 goals in each of those games.

They have scored 3 goals in their last 2 away matches, but they are unlikely to repeat that feat in this match against an extremely strong Juventus team.

Bookmakers make Juventus slight odds-on favourites to come out on top in thie tie (1.66), while Monaco are currently trading at (5.75).

For those brave punters who think Monaco can do the impossible, they are currently 21.0 to make it to the final.
