Then there were four... the Champions League is now down to the final four. Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Monaco and Juventus will all feel they can win this competition but, as Christopher Lambert in Highlander would say, there can be only one.

Real, aiming to become the first side ever to retain this trophy in the Champions League era, kick off the semi-finals by hosting Madrid rivals Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

This has been the final in two of the past three seasons but the only thing we now know is Spanish representation will be assured in the final. A tie that probably isn't going to be won or lost in this leg, but away goals could be crucial and Atletico will pose a definite goalscoring threat with the Real defence needing to be at its best.

Monaco, set to be crowned Ligue 1 champions for the first time in 17 years, are back in the semi-finals for the first time in over a decade, whilst being the outsiders to win this competition Juventus, closing in on the Italian title for a sixth season running themselves, will be challenged.

However, if Juventus defend like they did against Barcelona in the quarter-finals - few clubs have denied Barca a goal in two legs - the goalscoring threat they'll have will make the Bianconeri favourites against the French side.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
