McManaman tips Mbappe to trouble Juventus

Juve then wasted an excellent chance of their own, Claudio Marchisio - starting in place of the suspended Sami Khedira - capitalising on a loose pass and racing in on goal only to be denied by Subasic's legs.

"Even Barcelona could not score in two games against them so it will be complicated for us", said Monaco defender Kamil Glik.

"El Tigre" who was once one of the most feared strikers in Europe is again catching the attention of defenders across the continent, none more than Wednesday's opponent, Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini. Looking at the statistics, it's easy to imagine a game in a certain way, but football is unpredictable.

"Monaco play with great pace on vertical lines". This year it beat the Spanish club 3-0 over two legs in the quarterfinal.

Both of the previous "Monaco" The round starts as underdog. Monaco score a lot of goals, especially at the end of matches.

For Leonardo Jardim's Monaco with an average age of 25, this semi-final encounter is a new experience.

They now stand on the brink of a second Champions League final, having finished as runners up in 2004 - the only other time this century they've made it this far.

Before the game they had scored in all but one of their Champions League fixtures this season.

Monaco's Kylian Mbappe is the hottest property in world football right now but did he live up to the hype in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final against Juventus? Now he is returning to an extraordinary and very risky striker.

The 2-0 win was a result which some observers might have predicted, given Juventus' superior defence and experience, although Monaco's high-octane attack gave hope that the youthful side might be the first to truly test Juventus. Here is the tactical preview between these two dynamic teams. He is very good. And this was one of the most impressive, with Monaco the highest scoring team in Europe. Allegri's team are certainly in that tradition and in terms of the European game at the moment, they are absolutely top drawer.

"Everyone knows this Juventus team". I think the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala will have field days and things could get bad for the French side.

"If that is the case, he will not have such a strong need to go through against us - he will have many other opportunities in the future to win the Champions League", quipped the Italian veteran. Max Allegri's "5 star system" allows all of Juve's big guns: Pjanic, Dybala, Higuain, Mandzukic to be on the pitch at all times.

"The job is not complete", said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, whose side remains on course for a domestic and European treble. They have scored three goals in each of their last four Champions' League matches, but have had wobbles of late domestically, being pressed hard by Lyon in the league between conceding first to both Dijon and Toulouse.
