After plenty of excitement in quarter-final stage of the competition, only four teams are left, Real Madrid, Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Monaco.

The post UCL draw: Real Madrid face Atletico Madrid, Monaco vs. Juventus appeared first on BusinessDay: News you can trust.

Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus will travel to France for the first leg, with the return fixture taking place at their home stadium in Turin.

The other semi-final will feature Monaco v Juventus.

Celta eased past Genk 4-3 on aggregate in the quarter-finals, and while no semi-finalist should be underestimated, they're perhaps the most favourable draw United could have received.

Betting on Serie A?

In addition, during this run of seven semi-finals in a row, they have won two titles: la Décima in 2014 and last year´s Undécima.

Real host the first leg at the Bernabeu on April 2, with the return at the Vicente Calderon, where Atletico have not conceded in their last nine Champions League knockout games, the following Wednesday.

With United now four points outside the Premier League top four, winning the Europa League for the first time may represent their best chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

UEFA held the draw on Friday at its headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, following the draw for the same stage of the UEFA Champions League. It won a record-extending 11th title last season.

The 39-year-old's side will be home for the second leg against Monaco, whose young, exciting team knocked out Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals. But I wouldn't leave Monaco and their sensational year to the side, with an inspired Radamel Falcao and Kylian Mbappe.

The French side - Buffon labelled them "feisty" - are full of attacking vim and have hit a staggering 141 goals in all competitions this season.

The final is in Cardiff on June 3.
