TURIN, Italy (AP) - Dani Alves inspired Juventus to a 2-1 win over Monaco on Tuesday to send the Italian club to its second Champions League final in three years.

Juventus have been tremendous in the run to the final, churning out breathtaking results including the sending off Barcelona who failed to score over two legs.

It will face another Spanish side in the final in Cardiff on June 3, as Real Madrid leads Atletico Madrid 3-0 ahead of Wednesday's second leg match.

Meanwhile, Monaco are looking to stage a comeback of epic proportions when they take on Juventus in their home soil and progress into the finals, having not won in seven attempts on Italian soil.

"My goal is useless, it's anecdotal. We exit the competition with our heads held high", Jardim said in his post-match press conference. And the 18-year-old said he was better for the experience against Europe's top clubs.

It remains to be seen whether Monaco's leading lights will still be at Stade Louis II next season, with Jardim himself also linked with a move away, but the Portuguese was happy to reflect on a campaign of many positives on the continent. "Today we learnt a lot, I learnt a lot and we'll try to come back next season better armed".
