    Champions League Semi Final Draw

    The draw for the forthcoming Champions League semi -finals was made Friday morning as Eleven time winners Real Madrid, were drawn against local rivals Atletico Madrid.

    In the other semi-final tie French Ligue 1 leaders Monaco, take on Italian Serie A league leaders Juventus.

    Real Madrid defeated Atletico in the 2014 and 2016 Champions League Finals, so Atletico will most certainly have revenge in mind over their rivals. Real overcame Bayern Munich in the Quarter Finals, whilst Atletico ended Leicester City's dream run with a 2-1 aggregate win.

    Monaco last reached the Champions League Final in 2004, where they lost 3-0 to Jose Mourinho's Porto side. The French side have been free scoring this season with 90 goals so far in their domestic league, and 21 goals in the Champions League since the Group Stage phase began. Monaco reached the semi finals by knocking out Borussia Dortmund 6-3 on aggregate.

    However, Juventus have one of the best defences in the competition so far, having only conceded two goals, including two clean sheets against Barcelona in their Quarter Final victory. They have not won the Champions League since 1996, so they will be desperate to get their hands on the trophy again.
