Juve Back In Champions League final

Juventus forward Argentina Paulo Dybala Juventus goalkeeper from Italy Gianluigi Buffon Juventus forward from Argentina Gonzalo Higuain Juventus forward from Croatia Mario Mandzukic and Juventus defender from Italy Giorgio Chiellini celebrate afte

"I think the team has a good chance to win the Champions League", Allegri said, quoted on the official Juventus website.

At 39 years old, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will surely see Cardiff as his last chance to get his hands on the trophy after playing in two losing finals, and the World Cup victor will be a key figure next month.

"We've had a great Champions League [season], we are proud of the players, it was the first experience at this level of many of them".

If, as is likely, they face Real in the final, Juventus will go into the game as underdogs, but they have the defensive game plan, at least, to win.

"By playing against the best we learned, I learned, and we will try to come back next year even better prepared".

Brazilian Dani Alves was the inspiration in the second-leg in Turin, setting up the first goal for Mario Mandzukic before scoring the second on the stroke of half-time with a fantastic volley.

In the second half, Monaco was more effective, cutting the Juventus lead to one in the 69th minute when Mbappe beat Gianluigi Buffon, who had not conceded in the last 690 minutes.

Hertz Global Holdings, Inc (NASDAQ:HTZ) To Release Earnings
The overall volume in the last trading session was 2.50 million shares, versus the average volume of 7.52 million shares. Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft FI raised its stake in shares of Hertz Global Holdings by 292.0% in the fourth quarter.

However, as usual, Arsenal have dillied and dallied, allowing the Wenger decision to go on and on, to such a point that it has affected results at the club, while also letting Allegri make that decision to stay at Juventus.

He may have landed the trophy three times in the last eight years, but as his performances against Monaco showed, that desire to be the best never fades.

This time, it could be Juve's year, especially after it eased past the Catalan team 3-0 on aggregate in the quarterfinals. Tiemoue Bakayoko, Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy, to name only the most notable players, could all be leaving.

Buffon slipped in the fifth minute of his 150th European game as Mbappe hit the right post but was ruled offside.

Despite their two-goal advantage, Juventus remained on the offensive as Mandzukic forced a smart save from Monaco keeper Danijel Subasic after being played into the left side of the penalty area.

Monaco coach Jardim praised the efforts of his young side, who now have the Ligue 1 championship firmly in their sights.

He said: "I swapped my shirt with Mbappe because when I was young nobody wanted to do that with me and I hated it".
