Juventus beats Monaco 2-1 to reach Champions League final

Juventus beats Monaco 2-1 to reach Champions League final

Higuain has proved to be a hit during his first campaign at the Old Lady, managing an impressive 24 goals in 35 Serie A appearances and helping Massimiliano Allegri's side into a commanding position in their Champions League semi-final against Monaco.

"I don't need people to talk about my merits", said the phlegmatic coach after his team won 2-1 to complete a 4-1 aggregate semi-final win.

Juventus head into the second leg of their semifinal matchup against Monaco with all of the momentum after defeating Monaco in Monaco 2-0 in the first leg thanks to a Gonzalo Higuain double. Atletico coach Diego Simeone went as far as to say that coming back from 3-0 down to holders Real Madrid in their derby at home would be 'impossible for other teams but not his.

The second leg of the match is to be played at the Juventus Stadium in Turin Italy.

But they will be giving it their all to try and overturn the deficit.

He added: "I am glad for the lads, they reached the final, but from tomorrow we have to focus, because we haven't won anything". "I don't score very often, so I'm happy, but in a way I prefer the assist to a goal, so everyone goes home happy".

"Playing a final is enough motivation for me", Alves said. Hopefully we can score in the second leg. Nobody believed in July we would reach the group stage. We let in a goal nearly on the counter-attack: [Lionel] Messi hammered a shot on goal, I diverted it and [Luis] Suarez scored.

Leonardo Jardim's men continued to chip away and they created an opening in the 67th minute when Djibril Sidibe played in Mbappe on the left, but Gigi Buffon got down smartly to block the teenager's shot from a narrow angle.

He said: "It was normal in the circumstances and towards the end of the season".

The second leg of the Champions League semifinal gets underway tonight at 19:45 GMT.

Tunnel with nuclear waste collapses in Washington state
There is no indication of a release of contamination at this point, Crews are continuing to survey the area for contamination. It contains about 56 million gallons of radioactive waste, most of it in 177 underground tanks.

With what appears to be a straightforward path to the final, Buffon, who trained with the rest of the Juventus squad on Monday, is keen to make up for the disappointment of losing finals to AC Milan in 2003 and Barcelona two years ago.

Leonardo Jardim's exciting young side face an nearly impossible task against the Serie A giants.

I'll start, perhaps, with the championship of Italy, where Juventus remains the sole leader and without difficulties is approaching the sixth consecutive champion title.

"But we still have to improve, and we have a month to work on it, without forgetting that we are in the middle of some very important games".
