Well that is all we have time for on this Champions League live text. But fear not, this jam-packed week of football offers plenty more with the second semi-final second leg from Madrid as Real travel to Atletico in the final European game to be hosted at the Vicente Calderon. It should be some occasion.

We'll have full coverage of Atletico's attempts to overturn the three-goal deficit, but until next time it's goodbye.

Full time: Juventus (4) 2-1 (1) Monaco

Juventus are into their eighth Champions League final and second in two years and seeing off Monaco in Turin. The damage was done both in the first leg and then during the opening 45 minutes in the second leg when Mario Madzukic and then Dani Alves extended the Old Lady's advantage. Kylian Mbappe hit back with a consolation but there was to be no dramatic comeback from the visitors who now much turn attention to wrapping up the French title in their final three games.

21:32

Juventus' fans are back in party mode as the minutes tick by. Monaco have been hugely entertaining in this competition but have just come up short. Hopefully they'll be back, if they can starve off a summer fire sale.

21:25

Gonzalo Higuainis back and gets an attempt at a volley all wrong, but is in a offside position anyway. This tie has really fizzled out thanks to the antics of the last few minutes. Not that there was much competitiveness left in it.

21:21

Dani Alves celebrates putting Juventus in an unassailable lead.

Handbags all over the place in Turin. There is little doubt that Gilk stamps on Leonardo Bonucci, who reacts upon a break in play but shoving Lemar to the ground. The Italian is booked but Gilk escapes punishment. Wonder if Uefa may have a look at that.

21:13

GOAL! Juventus (4) 2-1 (1) Monaco (Kylian Mbappe)

If this is indeed Kylian Mbappe's final European game in a Monaco shirt he will at least end it with a goal. Silva is allowed time and space to cross and Mbappe steals in at the net post and fires past Buffon. Hope for Monaco?

21:12

Buffon keeps that run going as he saves from Mbappe, turning the ball behind with an outstretched right leg.

21:10

Not really going anywhere this game - and to think this was meant to be the more competitive of the two semi-final second legs. Monaco desperately searching for something to show from their efforts, but Juve are unlikely to give up their fine defensive record easily.

20:59

Back to the football and Juventus make their second change of the night, Juan Cuadrado replacing Paul Dybala.

20:58

Some breaking news to bring you which does, at least partially, involve tonight's expected winners Juventus. Paul Pogba's move from the Old Lady to Manchester United will be investigated by Fifa. Further details are unknown at this stage. Find the full story here.

20:50

Back underway for the second half. No changes at the break.

20:34

Half time: Juventus (4) 2-0 (0) Monaco

Juventus are heading for the Champions League final after doubling their advantage from the first leg. Mario Manzukic completed a fine team move to open the scoring before Dani Alves - provider of the first - thumps home a stupendous second. Monaco have been unable to compete with the waves of Old Lady attacks. Juve have been unstoppable and their march to Cardiff is almost complete.

20:32

GOAL! Juventus (4) 2-0 (0) Monaco (Dani Alves)

Danijel Subašić has been in good nick tonight but there is no stopping this; an absolute crackerjack from Dani Alves. A left-wing corner is only cleared as far as a the Brazilian who unleashes a fabulous volley from 25 yards which beats Subasic for pure pace.

20:32

Subasic without another save - I've lost count how many there have been in this first half, as he rushes out to keep out Dybala. Dani Alves again at the centre of the piece.

20:31

And now Monaco hits the crossbar as Mbappe shoots from an impossible angle but it beats Buffon and clips the woodwork. Giving it a go are the visitors, even if it might prove to be in vein.

20:30

Until now! Falcao thinks he's levelled the tie on the night after Silva's cross but Chiellini turns the ball towards his own goal but somehow only wide of goal.

20:29

Steve McManaman is making the point about how poor Monaco have looked going forward across both legs, and though it pains me to say it, he's spot on. One hundred and 49 goals have come from this Monaco side this term but we're nearly three quarters through the tie and they're barely troubled the BBC.

20:27

Mario Manzukic puts Juventus into a three-goal lead in the first semi-final.

GOAL! Juventus (3) 1-0 (0) Monaco (Mario Manzukic)

And that should settle it. A move which started from Buffon's throw ends with Dani Alves crossing from the right and when Subasic pushes out Manzukic's header, the Croatia international slams the ball into the roof of the net. Monaco need four to progress. It's party time in Turin.

20:16

The Serie A champions are in full flow now but the chances continue to go. Pjanic goes close now as Gilk gets in a crucial block. Just a matter of time, surely?

20:13

Subasic keeps Monaco in the tie. Manzukic is played in by Higuain, but the Monaco 'keeper gets down and gets a left paw on the ball. From one Croatian to another there.

20:11

Juventus have finally settled but they should be out of sight in the tie. Higuain goes through and chips Subasic and though the ball looks to be heading wide, Gilk hooks the ball clear of danger.

20:02

The problems continue for Juventus as Sami Khedira, who is only back tonight from suspension, is forced off injured. Claudio Marchisio comes on, with Juve reverting to the team that started the first leg in Monaco.
