UCL: Juventus cruise to final

UCL: Juventus cruise to final
Juventus have secured a place in the Champions League final with their 2-1 win over Monaco in Turin completing a 4-1 aggregate victory.

First-half goals from Mario Mandzukic and Dani Alves ended the tie as a contest before the break to ensure Massimiliano Allegri’s side will contest the final in Cardiff next month.

Alves’s stunning volley, in particular, emphasised the superiority of the Italian side amid an electric atmosphere at Juventus Stadium.

And while Kylian Mbappe did bolster his growing reputation with a second-half goal from close range it was nowhere near enough to get the Ligue 1 team through

With the blend of defensive nous and attacking potency that means the Old Lady will go to Cardiff in expectation as well as hope of a first Champions League triumph since 1996.
