Juventus and Monaco have met before in the semi-finals of the Champions League with the Old Lady winning 6-4 in 1998.

The Real & Atletico clash is re-match of last season’s final.

In the Europa League – favourites Manchester United have been handed a clash with Celta Vigo, whilst second favourites Lyon will take on Ajax.

With the two favourites kept apart – both have been shortened with United at 5/6 and Lyon are 11/4.
