Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 1 HD, Sky Sports 5 and Sky Sports 5 HD.

Overview

Juventus have never lost a fixture to a French team at home, winning 10 of the 12 matches. They will be looking to keep the record intact and extend the winning run when they take on Monaco.

The Italian giants will be without the services of the former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba for both legs after Massimiliano Allegri confirmed the Frenchman has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.

The Turin club suffered a rare defeat at the hands of Parma in the last fixture, which is Juventus' second defeat in the league this season. In the Champions League, they sealed a berth in the last eight after knocking Borussia Dortmund out of the competition.

Meanwhile, the Ligue 1 outfit made it to the quarter final of the Champions League clash on away goals as the final score was 3-3 on aggregate against Arsenal. Leonardo Jardim's side were impressive at the Emirates and he will be hoping for a similar performance on Wednesday evening.

What Managers Say

Massimiliano Allegri: "Monaco conceded once in six group games. This doesn't come about by chance, they're organised and have a top coach. We need to be on our guard because there's little room for error with just two games. What's important is that we don't concede and pass through to the next round."

Leonardo Jardim: "Juventus are a better team than Arsenal. They are in the quarter-final of the Champions League and deserve to be there. Juve are a better team, it's not complicated. They are top of their league."
