Soccer: Juve draws Monaco in CL semis (3)
Italian champions get luck of the draw
21 Aprile 2017
Rome, April 21 - Juventus drew Monaco in the semi-finals of the Champions League Friday. The other semi-final will be between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Monaco is generally seen as the weakest of the four semi-finalists so it was a lucky draw for the Italian champions. Juve, who are going for a historic treble, beat Barcelona 3-0 in the quarter-finals. Juve Vice President Pavel Nedved said coach Massimilano Allegri was a "genius" and the club would be happy to offer him a three-year contract extension. "Let's continue along this way," said the former Juve and Lazio forward.
