Right, catch you tomorrow for a cross-town dust-up of epic proportions as Atletico Madrid go hammer and tongs at Real and try and give the Vicente Calderon a Valhalla-level send-off.

Bye for now.

Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon: "If we'd taken to the pitch thinking we were already through we would have found it tough, we were ready to react to everything they threw at us.

"That's how we got through. We've got to Cardiff - I won't say it was our aim because getting to the final means nothing. I'm really happy because I'm in good shape. I can't deny the fact that if we didn't have a great team getting there wouldn't be possible.

"Two years ago everyone thought it was my last final - but you have to believe in your dreams and believe in what you do."

I'm still struggling to get over these Juve dressing rooms. It looks more like the interior of the International Space Station than a place to stow your clothes.

'We hope we'll be better next season'

Monaco captain Radamel Falcao speaking to Uefa: “They played really well and took their chances. We weren’t clinical enough when we had opportunities. We fought hard all season for Monaco and for French football and we hope we’ll be better next season.”

The celebrations - more bouncing, slightly odd flinging of mineral water - are so-so.

Just check out those dressing rooms at Juventus Stadium though. All clean lines, white walls and flat screen tellies.

It is like a graphic designer's living room.

Third time lucky?

Gianluigi Buffon has played more than 1000 games.

Two - in 2003 and 2015 - have been Champions League finals. 

Both ended in defeat.

Will this year finally be the one that the 39-year-old reels in club football's biggest prize?

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Former England manager and Monaco player Glenn Hoddle on BT Sport: "Massimiliano Allegri hes been shrewd with three at the back. He has to keep that for the final. Dani Alves has been outstanding in two legs. For me I quite fancy that they could win this."

The other semi-final

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid (agg:0-3) (Wed, 19:45 BST)

It will be a Madrid team to play Juve in the final on 3 June and, barring one of the extraordinary nights in Champions League history, it will be Real.

Real Madrid travel to the Vicente Calderon tomorrow evening for the final time before it is demolished in the summer

They have a 3-0 aggregate lead to protect them from what is going to be a tumultuous atmosphere. 

This was the scene to greet Atletico's players after tonight's training session.

Juventus' players lead the home fans in their celebrations with some co-ordinated bouncing.

The Monaco players head over to salute their travelling fans. They have been on a one heck of a journey from the qualifying round in July.

FULL-TIME

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Juventus are through to a second Champions League final in three years.

They have dispatched Monaco with some ease and in some style.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

There is just another minute added on to go.

Max Allegri is already getting showered with isotonic by some of his players.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Kamil Glik is winding up the entire Juventus team. Mario Mandzukic is the latest to take the bait as his response to some toe-treading earns the Juventus striker a yellow card.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Gonzalo Higuain cuts the ball back into the Monaco box, but there is no black-and-white foot to meet it.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Miralem Pjanic takes on the free-kick duties from a prime spot, 25 yards from goal.

His effort flicks off the forehead off Joao Moutinho in the wall and over the top though.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Gonzalo Higuain should have been on the scoresheet tonight. But the Argentine's finishing has been sloppy.

He gets on the end of a fine searching cross from the left, but his header actually flies away from the Monaco goal.

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Off comes Andrea Barzagli to a standing ovation as Medhi Benatia replaces him in the Juventus defence.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Fabinho comes and joins in Gonzalo Higuain and Kamil Glik's wrestling match, treading on some Juve toes and giving away a free-kick.

Referee Bjorn Kuipers is across quickly to separate the sides.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Joao Moutinho fails to get his head over the ball and sends his effort sailing into the stands behind the Juventus goal.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Juventus full-back Alex Sandro puts the heat back under things with a showboating flurry of stepovers and drag-backs down by the Monaco corner flag.

Andrea Raggi is across to make a robust challenge. Kamil Glik is breathing down Gonzalo Higuain's neck again.

Without the scoreline to concentrate on, these players are up to no good.

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Gonzalo Higuain is fit to continue, but the red mist seems to have descended behind the eyes.

He needs a helpful Gary Lineker-type to tell the bench to watch out for him.

The last thing Juventus need is him looking to do a hatchet job on Kamil Glik and to get himself sent off and suspended.

YELLOW CARD

Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg: 4-1)

Here is a little bit of spice to the pot.

Gonzalo Higuain is down and in pain. He is punching the floor. It looks like Kamil Glik has trampled across his thigh as the Argentine has gone to the floor.

The Juve fans are whistling, wanting the ball played out so their man can get treatment.

Monaco ignore them. Until Mario Mandzukic comes careering across to take out Fabinho and clear the ball into touch.

Protest and finger-pointing all round. Leonardo Bonucci is shown yellow for taking it too far.

Feisty.

GOAL - Juventus 2-1 Monaco (agg:4-1)

Kylian Mbappe (69 mins)

Kylian Mbappe rushes in to meet Joao Moutinho's low cross from close range and barely breaks stride as he continues into the goalmouth to scoop up the ball and head back to halfway.

That is his sixth in six Champions League knock-out games.

But surely it is only a personal milestone, rather than the start of a turnaround.

Monaco's Mbappe scores a consolation goal

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

A slip from Dani Alves, a slide-rule pass from Bernardo Silva, but Kylian Mbappe fluffs his shot as the ball bobbles in front of him and duffs into Gianluigi Bufffon's shins from a tightening angle.

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

What if ... Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic is the greatest 'big lad/big lad' up front combination *of all time*?

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

There has been a Monaco switch that I missed.

Benjamin Mendy, who only came into the side after Nabil Dirar was injured in the warm-up, has come off to be replaced by Fabinho.

Nothing to lose now. And Mendy might be needed at the weekend.

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

Juventus could make mincemeat, or at least a finer grade of mincemeat, of Monaco if they had a pacier striker than Gonzalo Higuain up front.

He can't motor away from Kamil Glik as the pair go mano-on-mano in a pace race.

SUBSTITUTION

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

Paulo Dybala departs early after suffering with a bit of cramp at the weekend.

On comes Juan Cuadrado - still on loan from Chelsea - who wastes a good chance with his first involvement.

The winger was caught between trying to pick out Gonzalo Higuain and just putting his size nine through the back of the ball.

Giorgio Chiellini is marauding forward, fancying himself as a play-making libero as well as an teak-tough stopper.

He cannot quite get on the end of a Dani Alves pull-back through as Kamil Glik stretches and stabs clear.

YELLOW CARD

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

Benjamin Mendy hoofs the ball into the stands in frustration after being pinged for a foul on Paulo Dybala.

A booking and a talking to for the Monaco left-back.

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

Monaco have started the half brightly. Just as they did in the two first halves of this tie so far.

Joao Moutinho drills into the hoardings from 20 yards.

There is a sense of anti-climax though at the Juventus Stadium. This is a coast to the final rather than a battle.

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

What have Monaco got left then?

How much ticker are they going to show in the second half?

Or, with the French title a win away with three games to go in Ligue 1, is discretion the better part of valour?

This game is surely gone.

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

Dani Alves' stats from that first half are something.

He has had more touches than any other Juve player (40), made a team-high number of tackles (four) and regained possesion more time than any of his team-mates (six).

And he scored one goal and set up the other.

We are back up and running.

Juve make possession count

Juventus 2-0 Monaco (agg: 4-0)

Monaco needed to make this difficult for Juventus, nick an opener, lets the home nerves start to twitch and see what might happen.

Maybe they have been just a bit too gung-ho a bit too early.

The stats from the first half are revealing, they have had pressed Juve back, but left too much space in behind.

Oh my. Return to sender.

The ball loops up to Dani Alves 25 yards out as Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic punches clear from a corner.

The Brazilian doesn't hesitate. Right off his trusty right instep, he sends the ball back where it came from with interest.

Kettle on, game done.

Dani Alves

Juventus 1-0 Monaco (agg: 3-0)

That is about as close as Juventus have come to conceding in the last 11 hours of Champions League football.

Benjamin Mendy gets in behind down the left and whips in a defender's nightmare of a cross - low, skidding and fizzing across the face of goal.

Kylian Mbappe can't quite get a touch and Giorgio Chiellini does magnificently to steer it behind when he seemed to destined to put through his own net.

YELLOW CARD

Juventus 1-0 Monaco (agg: 3-0)

Radamel Falcao loses his footing and slips straight into back of Giorgio Chiellini as the Juventus defender is attempting to bring the ball out from the back.

A genuine mistake, but the referee flourishes a yellow card anyway.

Gonzalo Higuain drills in a daisycutter from 20 yards and a tightening angle.

Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic gets down in time, but his evening is getting increasingly busy.
