Juventus can win Champions League: Allegri

Bonucci Juventus now certainties in Champions League final

FC Barcelona have been struggling to replace Dani Alves at right-back, but they apparently snubbed the chance to re-sign the in-form star in January.

Alves had twice set up Gonzalo Higuaín to score in the semi-final first leg as Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri fielded Andrea Barzagli as one of three centre-backs to give the former Barcelona man more freedom to attack.

Alves played a key role in Juventus' Champions League semi-final win over Monaco, creating three goals and scoring the other one in a 4-1 aggregate trimuph, and Bonucci is in awe of his experienced team-mate.

These two teams met in the UEFA Champions League Final in both 2014 and 2016, with Real coming out on top both times. The road team is going off at +450 to pull off a road upset and +295 to play to a draw.

"That's something we need to improve on". They had the same goalkeeper and defence they do now, although Giorgio Chiellini was unfortunately injured for the final.

Kylian Mbappe scored a consolation goal in the 69th minute for Monaco, as Juventus remained on course for the treble. This time, it could be Juventus' year, especially after it eased past the Catalan team 3-0 on aggregate in the quarterfinals.

"It's a path that started a long time ago", Allegri said.

The original scheduling shows how little faith the Italian authorities had in any of their sides making the Champions League showpiece. "Everyone has grown: the club, the players, myself".

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim batted off suggestions that Tuesday might have been the last big night for his talented young squad before its brightest stars are lured away. "Our objective is getting closer and closer and we have to make a last effort to finish the job, because we have achieved nothing yet".

"It was not enough but we left with our heads held high". In Berlin we had a magnificent midfield, but we're certainly no worse off now.

"We had a good run ... we don't have many regrets about this European campaign", he said.
