    As you say, it's harder to stop a team like Monaco, who can adapt and vary their playing style. You can't game plan as much vs them compared to Barca. I've seen them play on the counter many times and they will be very dangerous on the break (like Monaco vs. Arsenal in the round in 16 in 2015). Monaco have a better midfield than Barca right now too, they don't have a big flop like Andre Gomes.

    The key for Monaco is keeping this game close and not stupidly blowing the game early like Barca. Jube will wilt, they got the mother of all chokers in Higuain! Monaco will like the position they're in: no pressure, the underdogs, and everyone has written them off.

    My worry is Monaco's fitness, they seem to struggle during second halves and they weren't expected to play this many games this year.

    Monaco has one of the best attacks in Europe. Juventus has conceded only 2 goals in UCL this season.

    Pretty much unstoppable force meets immovable object.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    we scored 2 goals against Rube at the Meazza we are more forte than we let one...but then a Crotone happens and they get depressed...if we had a ballsy coach we could actually compete with Rube,not actually surpass or anyhting but give them a real scare ffs

    Monaco will knock them out. Jube beat the lucky Barca team not that great Barca in 2010.

    You can question Medel's technical quality but he is one of the few players who really puts his best effort every match
