Juventus into CL finals post 4-1 aggregate win over Monaco

Turin [Italy], May 10 : Juventus stormed into their second Champions League final in three years after clinching a comfortable 4-1 aggregate win over Monaco at the Juventus Stadium here on Wednesday.

Juventus, who registered 2-0 win in the first leg of the semi-final clash at The Stade Louis II, went on to claim a 2-1 win over Monaco in the second leg to book their place in the summit showdown.

The Italian side put themselves ahead when Mario Mandzukic hammered a goal, after his initial header was saved, in the 33rd minute of the match, goal.com reported.

Just a minute before the half-time, Dani Alves doubled the side's lead with an instinctive volley from goalkeeper Danijel Subasic's punched clearance.

Although 18-year-old Kylian Mbappe, who is playing his debut season, struck a consolidated goal for Monaco in the 69th minute, it was not just enough to emerge victorious against Juventus.

Juventus, who have lost 3-1 to Barcelona in the 2015 final, will lock horns with either Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid in Cardiff on June 4.
