The Champions League semi-final draw, featuring Real Madrid, Juventus, Monaco and Atletico Madrid, is at 11:00.

That's it from me guys. "I feel proud of the team and we have to keep working like we do in order to get to the final".

The other semi-finals sees Ajax taking on Lyon and this is a big night for both team and countries as this is the first time France and the Netherlands have clubs in the Europa League semis for the first time in the competition's 8-year history!

Just because it means so much to them does not mean they will prevail.

The semi-final first legs will take place on Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 May, with the returns the following week.

The 2016/17 Champions League final will take place on Saturday, 3 June, in Cardiff, and Real, should they progress to the decider, will attempt to become the first side to defend the coveted title.

Diego Simeone's side are through to the semi-finals for the third time in four seasons alongside city rivals Real Madrid, who beat them after extra-time and penalties respectively in the 2014 and 2016 finals and triumphed in a 2015 quarter-final.

Could the Serie A champions finally win their first Champions League trophy since 1996??

Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Monaco and Real Madrid will discover their fate for the last four at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The draw will take place at 1100BST on Friday. "I think they can win the Champions League this season", Pique said.

An additional draw defines whether the victor of semi-final 1 or the victor of semi-final 2 will be considered, for administrative purposes, the home side in the final.
