REAL MADRID’S PATH to becoming the first team to win back-to-back Uefa Champions League titles will see them face defeated finalists Atletico in the final four.

Manchester United (2009) were the last team to even reach the final after winning the previous year and Los Blancos will hope to go one better this year.

The other semi-final sees Monaco face two-time winners Juventus.

The first legs will take place on the 2 and 3 May with the return dates on 9 and 10 May.

The final, of course, is set for Cardiff on 3 June.
