Juventus hold on to reach semi-finals!

Treble-chasing Juventus reached a first Champions League semi-final since 2003 as they defended solidly to earn a second-leg goalless draw in Monaco.

In a game with few clear chances, Juventus hit the crossbar in the closing minutes through Andrea Pirlo’s free-kick, after Carlos Tevez’s long range flew wide in the first half.

Monaco dominated possesion for the majority but rarely tested Juventus goal-keeper Gianluigi Buffon. Dimitar Berbatov did had a shot smothered after the break.

Monaco could have had a penalty after 35 minutes when Arturo Vidal and Chiellini sandwiched Kondogbia on the corner of the area, but the referee waved on.

With this aggregate result (1-0) Juventus go through the next round and will wait until Friday to discover who are they facing in the next round, while Monaco had been knocked out of the Champions League.
