A treble on the cards? Juventus score ticket to Champions League final

Juventus have landed themselves a place in next month’s Champions League final and a chance at the treble, with potential Serie A and Coppa Italia titles also on the cards.

The Italian side beat AS Monaco 4-1 on aggregate, paving the way for their second final in the competition in three years.



Coach Massimiliano Allegri will be hoping not to see a repeat of 2015, when Juve lost out to Barcelona in the final.

“This year we will go to the final with greater awareness, we’ve all grown and matured,” Allegri told the press after the match.

“This doesn’t mean that we’re the favourites to win the Champions League because we’ll be facing Real or Atletico, most likely Real, which is a team with great players, in a final which requires technical skill, defence and a bit of good luck in order to win.”

AS Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim seemed more proud than disappointed.

“I think that we’ve played a great Champions League and I am very proud of the players. We’ve had a great journey in the Champions League this year, advancing from the group stages all the way through to the semi-final. The players are very happy as for many of them this has been the first experience of playing at this level, playing in the semi-finals.”

Cardiff will host the final, on June 3.
