He now has a chance to win a remarkable fourth Champions League title, probably against his former club's arch-rivals Real Madrid, who take a commanding lead into the second leg of their semi-final against city rivals Atletico on Wednesday.

Teenage star Kylian Mbappe pulled a goal back for the principality club after the break, his sixth of the competition.

We have not won anything yet.

MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI, Juventus manager, on the challenge that lies ahead for his players.

Alves has been an important figure for Juventus this season, averaging three defensive actions per game in Serie A, while he has also provided a considerable attacking threat, laying on 31 chances for his team-mates and completing 69% of his attempted take-ons. "We have all grown since 2015, including myself, and getting to the final is no easy thing". We have more confidence [than Juve's runners-up of 2015] and we will go there to win.

Juventus legend Liam Brady hailed right-back Dani Alves as the "most influential" player at the club, after the Italian side qualified for the Champions League Final.

"I think he's come on defensively". It would hurt the Italian to lose it to another Spanish giant for the second time in three years.

Jardim said he expected Juve to be facing Real in Cardiff and said the Italian side would be anything but underdogs.

"This Juve is stronger than it was in 2015".

That team from the 2015 final was certainly full of quality. "I think he's had his problems temperament wise. It's the final we all wanted, two great teams with European pedigree, it's great for Juventus".

The Brazilian enjoyed eight successful years at Barcelona before deciding to move on last summer.

Juventus coach Massimiliamo Allegri brought in a 4-2-3-1 formation in January, moving Pjanic to a deeper midfield role alongside Sami Khedira, with Juan Cuadrado, Dybala and Mandzukic sitting just behind Higuain.

Monaco, who twice beat Tottenham in the group stage before knocking out Manchester City and Dortmund, can now focus their efforts on trying to win a first Ligue 1 title since 2000.

"I think the change of system gave us the awareness that we are more "European" and that's been our force together with the fact that we all sacrifice ourselves for the team", Bonucci said.
