Paulo Dybala expected to be passed fit for Champions League semi-final

Juventus will again look to Higuain to lead its attack on Tuesday against Monaco, especially after the Argentina forward ended his negative streak with both goals in the first leg. Higuain hadn't previously scored in a Champions League knockout match since 2013.

He was assisted by Alves, his third assist in Juventus' last three goals.

"He is a very complete player", he told a news conference, as quoted by Four Four Two. "Now we've got to think about Monaco and then, the day after tomorrow, we will think about the Roma match". Lionel Messi leads the way with 35 league goals this season, with Edinson Cavani second with 33 and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski joint third with 28.

The Bianconeri enter Tuesday's semi-finals second leg ahead 2-0, and the tactician knows that his side must be at their absolute best if they are to have any chance of claiming the result they need in Turin. "It would be the greatest joy of my career, together with the (2006) World Cup, because it would nearly be a reward - the end of a very difficult road paved by bravery, stubbornness and hard work", Buffon told uefa.com, when asked what it would mean to him if he won the Champions League title with Juventus.

Monaco are more than capable of winning away from home but Juve boast the best defence in Europe this season, meaning the principality club face a challenge.

Juve reached the 1998 final after beating the Ligue 1 club before losing to Real Madrid and Los Blancos - 3-0 up over Atletico in the other semi-final - are likely opponents in Cardiff.

Much of the talk in the build-up to the first leg had focused on Monaco's brilliant 18-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe, but neither he nor veteran strike partner Radamel Falcao could find a way past Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Trump to work on 'perhaps the toughest deal'
President Donald Trump is expressing optimism for resumed peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel. At one point, Abbas, who read a statement in Arabic, said in English, "We have hope".

"At this time we've only reached the Coppa Italia final". As for the Champions League, the "Monegasque" scored in the playoffs three goals "Borussia" in Dortmund and two "Manchester City" in England.

"Let's hope", Chiellini said, "that will last for another 180 minutes".

"The change of system made us feel more European, only as long as everyone worked hard off the ball".

"Over nine months if you play every game, sometimes you are empty by the end of the season".

"When you can see the finish line approaching, it motivates you even more".

'But we've seen him finish with guile, handsome ones in the top corner as well as goals like that.
