'Dani Alves is the world's best attacking right-back'

13 May 2017

'Dani Alves is an alien, ' Bonucci told Il Giornale.

Mario Mandzukic and Dani Alves were on target as Juventus defeated Monaco 2-1 in Tuesday's semi-final second leg in Turin for a 4-1 aggregate triumph.

THE Coppa Italia final has been rearranged because it clashed with the Champions League final.

Juve, which can secure a sixth Serie A title on Sunday at Roma and is in the Italian Cup final, lost 3-1 to Barcelona in the Champions League final in 2015 but Allegri said the side had moved on and was ready for this year's decider in Cardiff on June 3.

There was one man who Alves didn't need to prove anything: Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri. "I don't think many are surprised this year after the run we've been on".

It is also the first time since 2002 that a final will be played in the United Kingdom, but outside of England. This time, it could be Juventus' year, especially after it eased past the Catalan team 3-0 on aggregate in the quarterfinals.

It was a performance which also put them within one win of the English Premier League title. Next it's West Brom and we have to try to win the league on Friday.

However, the Champions League final has essentially become a "global mega-event" and the level of interest, from both fans and media, means it takes a city of a certain area to accommodate supporters who travel to the venue.

Now 21 years on they can end their European drought. "Everyone has grown: the club, the players, myself".

Monaco's young team has earned a lot of admirers this season and coach Leonardo Jardim's task will be to keep his players together, especially with many top clubs following Mbappe.

The exuberant Brazilian is now enjoying a second wind at his new club and gave an inspired performance on Tuesday which must have left Barcelona wondering why they let him go in the first place. "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".

"We leave here eliminated, but still with our heads held high", Mbappe said. In Berlin we had a magnificent midfield, but we're certainly no worse off now.
