AS Monaco must make history on Tuesday if they hope to advance to the UEFA Champions League Final on June 3, when they travel to Italy to face that country’s dominant club, Juventus, in a second-leg semifinal match that will live stream — with the visitors facing a two-goal mountain to climb simply to send the match into extra time.
The defending Serie A champions, who are headed comfortably toward their sixth straight Italian championship, used two goals from their 29-year-old Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín to ease past French Ligue 1 leaders Monaco last week.
Now Monaco must travel to Turin knowing that no team in the modern era of European competition has overcome a 0-2 deficit to win a semifinal tie and that only one team has ever lost a semifinal home first leg by any score and gone on to advance to the UEFA Champions League Final.
Making matters even more improbable for Monaco, Juventus have won 11 straight two-legged ties against French Ligue 1 clubs, while Monaco have not won in Italy in seven tries, managing only a single draw in that span.

Despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacle facing them on the road to the Cardiff, Wales, final next month, Monaco Manager Leonardo Jardim says his troops have maintained a positive outlook on the game.
“We have to stay confident, try to play our game and put on a good performance and if we score at the start of the game maybe that could change things,” Jardim said on Monday. “We will have to attack with our minds free of bad thoughts. We want to keep our dream alive. Our objective is to reach the final. I’m very proud of my players and what they have done so far, regardless of Tuesday’s result.”
