What the managers say

Here's some pre-match facts and figures before you watch the Monaco v Juventus live stream:

Monaco are aiming to reach only their second Champions League final, having been runners-up in 2004 - when they were beaten by Jose Mourinho's Porto.

Juventus have won two European titles - in 1985 and 1996 - and have been runners-up twice.

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim said: "Juventus have a winning culture. They are well organised and physical defensively. In attack they are strong and they really only need two chances to score one. They are clinical and very good at set pieces. They are very hard to defend against.

"I think we'll score at the Juventus Stadium. We scored three at Dortmund, three at City and also a couple at Tottenham. Juventus are very different to Dortmund and City, though. Those clubs are more attack-minded and less focused on defence. We'll need to pay attention to transitional phases. We'll also need to move the ball quickly going forward."

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said: "I hope we'll become the first team to beat Monaco in this stadium in this competition this season. They play very direct football and they're very different from the side we faced two years ago.

"Monaco in 2015 were stronger defensively and now they're stronger as an attacking unit. Monaco score a lot of goals, especially at the end of matches. We'll need to produce two big performances."

The match will be refereed by Antonio Mateu Lahoz, of Spain.
