• No team has ever overturned a 2-0 first-leg home defeat in the Champions League knockout stages in 14 previous attempts.
  • Also, no French team has ever beaten Juventus on their own soil in European competition (D3 L11). Monaco’s two trips have both ended in defeat (4-1 in the 1997/98 Champions League semi-finals, 1-0 in the 2014/15 quarter-finals).
  • This is the second time these sides have met in a Champions League semi-final, Juventus securing their passage to the final with a 6-4 aggregate victory 19 years ago before losing to Real Madrid in the final (1997/98).
  • After failing to reach the last four of the Champions League from 2003/04 to 2013/14, Juventus have now made the semis for the second time in three seasons (after 2014/15).
  • In fact, the Turin club has systematically reached the final in five of its six previous Champions League semis.
  • Monaco have reached the Champions League semis for the fourth time after 1993/94, 1997/98 and 2003/04. No other French team has made the last four more than once.
  • Juventus, alongside Real Madrid, are the only unbeaten team in this season’s Champions League (W8 D3).
  • Juventus are also unbeaten in their last 18 Champions League home games (W11 D7), their longest ever run without a defeat in the competition on home soil. Bayern Munich are the last team to beat them, back in April 2013 (2-0).
  • Juventus haven’t conceded a goal for 621 minutes, the current longest run in the competition. Six consecutive clean sheets constitute their new record in the competition. Sevilla’s Nico Pareja was the last player to find the Turin nets, back in November.
  • None of the two goals conceded by Juventus in this season’s Champions League have come from open play (11 games).
  • Monaco have only won two of their 11 away games in the Champions League knockout stages (D2 L7), and have also never kept a clean sheet in those 11 outings.
  • Monaco have conceded 18 goals in the Champions League this season – including 10 in their last three away games – more than any other team among the remaining semi-finalists.
  • Gonzalo Higuain scored two goals in the first leg, as many as in his 24 previous Champions League knockout games. With five goals this season, it’s already the most prolific campaign of his career in the competition.
  • Dani Alves has scored more goals (9) and delivered more assists (25) than any other full-back in the Champions League since his debut in 2007/08. He delivered a brace of assists for Higuain in the first leg.
  • Falcao and Kylian Mbappé have scored 10 of Monaco’s last 16 Champions League goals. In the first leg, Mbappé failed to find the net for the first time after having started a game in the competition.
