The Champions League semi-final draw has been revealed. Defending champions Real Madrid were paired against neighbours Atletico, whilst Monaco got Juventus in the last four.
This means fans won't get to see a repeat of last season's final, with the Madrid Derby set to occur in the semis this time around.
This match-up will also give Diego Simeone a third change at revenge, having lost twice to their rivals in the Champions League – once in the quarter-finals and once in the final – since their 4-1 defeat in 13/14 in ultimate game.
Los Blancos, who made it into the last four after a controversial win over Bayern Munich, have a golden opportunity to make their second final in as many years. They could also become the first club to win back-to-back titles should they get past Los Rojiblancos.
Fans were happy not to see another Madrid Derby final, and were just as excited for the second semi-final draw: Monaco vs. Juventus.
These are two exciting European clubs who have made it this far for two opposite reasons. The Ligue 1 outfit have been lethal in attack, with Mbappe and Falcao tearing apart the likes of Man City and Borussia Dortmund.
Juventus, despite being deadly up front, are known for their rock-solid back four. They have conceded only two goals so far, and faced Barca and MSN over two legs without letting one goal in.

Where an unstoppable force (Monaco's attack) meets an immovable object (Juve's defence).
What a semi-final tie!
