French league leaders, Monaco will hope to replicate their domestic form to Europe when they take on Italian league leader, Juventus in Turin.

Monaco got a 3-0 over Nancy in a Ligue 1 match over the weekend with Mbappe starting from the bench while Juventus played out a 1-1 draw with Torino in the Serie A.

However in Europe, it is a different story for Monaco.

Juventus already has a 2-0 lead from the first leg courtesy of goals from Gonzalo Higuian which means the French side will have to score three unreplied goals to have a chance at getting to Cardiff final.

Both teams will maintain the same line-up as the first leg. There are no injury worries and suspensions.

The Monaco striking duo of Falcao and Mbappe will have to tinker up new ideas to get past the defensive combination of Dani Alves, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini and Buffon as many times as possible in order to overturn the 2-0 deficit.

Time is 7:45 pm.
