Juventus (2) vs. (0) Monaco: Champions League Semi-Final Second Leg – Match Preview

Juventus are in a commanding position ahead of their Champions League second leg home tie with Monaco.

Two goals from Gonzalo Higuain saw Juventus secure a 2-0 away win meaning they have one foot in the final.

Juventus are yet to concede in the knock out stages of the competition, whilst Monaco stunned both Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund.

Juve’s incredible winning streak at home domestically came to an end on the weekend as they were held by local rivals Torino.

Monaco require just one more win from their final three league games to secure the Ligue 1 title following a comfortable win away at Nancy.
