    Glad that we won't have another Madrid derby in the final. Monaco v Juventus should be a really good tie too.

    Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
    Monaco v Juventus

    Atleti v Monaco final would be perfect.
    Bit convenient that :) 3 times in 4 seasons and the TV ratings might drop.

    Those are going to be cracking games. Be interesting to see how Monaco fare against that defense.

    They won't walk through that defence as easily as they did against us.

    I'm going to say that they won't fare particularly well, but Barca did create a fair few chances in Turin before Juve got far enough ahead to really close the game down.

    This is where it'll begin to get really difficult for them, they haven't faced a test along the lines of Atleti or Juve yet (elite defence and top keepers, willing to sit back and let them make mistakes) and it's hard to see them outscoring Madrid in a one off game with the difference in quality of the respective defences.

    What time do the rags get a bye in the bigger European competition?

    Not a chance. So we'll really see the Monaco quality or lack thereof over two legs.
