    Monaco face Juventus tonight

    Juventus will again be banking on their impressive home form as they look to build on a fine away win to record their third two-legged victory against AS Monaco and reach a second Champions League final in three years.

    The Bianconeri are within touching distance of a place in the Cardiff final after Dani Alves twice set up Gonzalo Higuaín to clinch a 2-0 semi-final first-leg victory.

    Monaco, who have never won in Italy in seven trips, losing all but one, are hoping to reach the final for a second time having got that far in 2003/04 – their last semifinal appearance.

    Only twice in Champions League history have a team overturned a first-leg home defeat to win the tie, and both lost the first game 0-1: AFC Ajax against Panathinaikos FC in the 1995/96 semis (0-1 home, 3-0 away) and Inter Milan against Bayern Munich in the 2010/11 round of 16 (0-1 home, 3-2 away).

    Can Monaco put up an impressive showdown in tonight's UEFA champions league clash?

    There will be a live social media coverage of the encounter on SIlverbird Televison Facebook page www.facebook.com/silverbirdtelevision
