Serie A champions Juventus defeated Monaco 2-0 away to put a foot into their second final in three years.

Juventus were in control of the game and Gonzalo Higuain grabbed a brace to push them forward to face another Spanish club this time around.

Juve played Barcelona in the 2015 final but they were outclassed by the Catalan side. With the way things stand, Juve are set to play Real Madrid in the final in Cardiff, considering that the in-form Madrid saw off competition from their city rivals Atletico, defeating them 3-0 in just the first leg as Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed a hat trick.

French teenage star KylianMbappe made efforts during the game but he could not hit the target as a highly organized Juve defence with goalkeeper Gianlugi Buffon tamed him.

Man of the Match DaniAlves provided two crucial assists that Higuain connected to, to get the goals after not scoring in seven knockout games in the Champions League.

Monaco threatened their guests but the Juve team remain resolute to keep them from scoring. With the home record Juventus have, it seems impossible that Monaco would go and do the magic. The Serie A side have not lost by two goals since in more than three years.

The Coach MassimilianoAllegri is very confident in the defensive abilities of his team. After they held the high scoring Barcelona over two legs, the manager said they could play for the whole day and not concede. It would be difficult for Monaco to get the result they need to progress in Italy. The experience Juve had was clearly an advantage. They are set to lift the Serie A this week so the confidence would be overwhelming.

This year alone the shares of the club have jumped by 200% this year, according to Bloomberg. The club is now worth almost a billion Euros by market value and the bonus would rise if they make the final. They stand to gain much more if they shock the football community in Cardiff against any of the Madrid sides.
