Buffon dreaming again in Champions League final

Juventus full-back Dani Alves celebrates goal against Monaco

Juventus full-back Dani Alves celebrates goal against Monaco

Alves had a hand in all of the Italian champions' goals as they beat Monaco 4-1 on aggregate to secure a place in the Cardiff showpiece via Tuesday's 2-1 second-leg victory.

The second half was marred when Monaco defender Kamil Glik stamped on Gonzalo Higuain's thigh, a moment which Allegri said brought his team back to life just after the visitors had pulled a goal back.

He now has a chance to win a remarkable fourth Champions League title, probably against his former club's arch-rivals Real Madrid, who take a commanding lead into the second leg of their semi-final against city rivals Atletico on Wednesday.

Juventus have put together one of their best domestic and European seasons in recent memory, looking set to claim the Italian league despite the loss of Paul Pogba to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

The Juve fans confidently unfurled a banner which read "Time For Cardiff", where the Old Lady will look to exorcise the ghosts of defeat in both the 2003 and 2015 finals. Add in the fact that no team has ever come back from first-leg 2-0 deficit in the semifinals in Champions League history and you have a pretty good idea of the very big mountain Monaco will have to climb.

Juventus outclassed Monaco yet again in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

"Gigi is right, we are in the final and must try to win it", Allegri told Mediaset Premium.

In the 69th minute, Monaco grabbed a consolation as Joao Moutinho drove a low cross into the box to allow Mbappe to tap in from close range, making the striker the youngest goal scorer in a Champions League semifinal.

Cape Town - Gianluigi Buffon is delighted to have reached another Champions League final but now says just getting there is "not enough anymore". It is a result that makes us leave with our heads held high.

Could he finally win the one title that has eluded him so far?

Mbappe has been this season's revelation both at home and overseas, reaching 25 goals in all competitions with his consolation effort in Turin, and he is grateful for the experience.
