The UEFA Champions League semi-finals draw took place today - read on to find out if Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will meet each other!

Real Madrid are defending champions and Monaco the most "feisty" but Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon says that Atletico Madrid are the "trickiest".

Real Madrid and AS Monaco FC will play the first leg at home.

While the majority of their players are under 25, Ajax are not to be taken lightly-their semi-final clash with Lyon could be a thrilling encounter. "We lack a bit of experience because it will be the first semi-final for all of our players".

Atletico had also reached the final in 1974, when they lost to Bayern, but have yet to win the competition.

The victor of the Champions League will represent Europe at the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2017 in December.

The first leg will be held at Santiago Bernabeu while Vicente Calderon will hold the second leg.

Real Madrid beat Atletico in the final in 2014 and 2016 but playing the second leg away could favour their bitter rivals.

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.

Beaten Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has tipped Juventus to lift the trophy they last won in 1996 and they will be favourites against Monaco. "I think they can win the Champions League this season", Pique said.

French league leaders Monaco are the outsiders but they have already claimed victims in Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals and Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur before that.

But instead he must face teenage striking sensation Kylian Mbappe, 18, and a rejuvenated Radamel Falcao.

The National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff will stage the final at 20:45CET on Saturday 3 June.
