The Champions League trophy awaits the semifinal matchup between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid on Tuesday May 2

Monaco lost 2-1 to Juventus in Turin in the second leg of their semi-final tie on Tuesday, crashing out 4-1 on aggregate.

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.

First, Buffon and Co. will have to get past Monaco, who will have to make history in tomorrow morning's return leg if they are to end Ligue 1's long absence from the final.

Juventus have a month to improve before the Champions League final, says manager Massimiliano Allegri, who has urged his players to keep their focus.

It could clinch an unprecedented sixth straight Serie A title on Sunday when it visits closest challenger Roma. Home "Juventus" missed in six Champions League matches in a row. Have to compliment everyone. "We have to improve certain things, because this squad is capable of improving".

Monaco eventually pulled a goal back in the 69th minute when Kylian Mbappe tapped home from three-yards out, after some good work by Joao Moutinho.

Juve would be foolish to overlook Monaco, but on paper, it doesn't look good for the French side.

"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".
