Soccer: Juve draws Monaco in CL semis (4)

(ANSA) - Rome, April 21 - Juventus drew Monaco in the semi-finals of the Champions League Friday. The other semi-final will be between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Monaco is generally seen as the weakest of the four semi-finalists so it was a lucky draw for the Italian champions. Juve, who are going for a historic treble, beat Barcelona 3-0 in the quarter-finals. Juve Vice President Pavel Nedved said Monaco "is a very young team, it runs hard and has nothing to lose, so it is a dangerous adversary. "But the Juve lads are very focused, their focus is on going as far as possible" "They showed that by not throwing an all-out party after going through against Barcelona". Nedved added that coach Massimilano Allegri was a "genius" and the club would be happy to offer him a three-year contract extension. "Let's continue along this way," said the former Juve and Lazio forward.
