UCL Semis: Real Face Athletico, Juventus Tackle Monaco
By Dipo Olowookere
Draws for this season’s UEFA Champions’ League semi-finals have been made and the remaining four teams now know who to play to progress to the final.
The current champions, Real Madrid, have been drawn against their city rivals, Athletico Madrid.
Real went past Bayern Munich to pick a spot in the last four, while Athletico Madrid humbled debutant, Leicester City, to advance.
Italian giant, Juventus, have been put head-to-head with French club, As Monaco in the semi-finals and both will ruffle the green grass to progress to the last two of this year’s competition.
The Old Lady clipped the wings of Barcelona before making it through to the last four, while As Monaco did not have mercy on Borussia Dortmund, which had a terrorist attack last week, as they beat the German team 6-3 on aggregate.
The first leg would be played Tuesday, May 2 and Wednesday, May 3, 2017, while the return leg would be on Tuesday, May 9 and Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
