Vital View - Champions League, 2nd-3rd May 2017

The Champions League season continued with the first legs of the semi-finals, played in midweek.

It looks as if Real Madrid will see off Atletico Madrid with Juventus also having one foot in the Cardiff final, holding a good advantage after their first leg.

Here's a round-up of the Champions League action.

Results

Tuesday 2nd May 2017 - CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - SEMI-FINALS
Real Madrid 3-0 Atl├ętico Madrid 19:45

Wednesday 3rd May 2017 - CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - SEMI-FINALS
Monaco 0-2 Juventus 19:45

Real Madrid took a giant step towards the Champions League final - in the quest to become the first side to defend this trophy in the current format - with an emphatic 3-0 win over Madrid rivals Atletico Madrid at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick has put Real very much in the driving seat to make a third final in four seasons.

It's not over but Monaco will have their work cut out to overthrow a 2-0 deficit against soon to be Italian champions Juventus, closing in on a sixth successive Scudetto. Juve managed to shut out the attacking prowess of Barcelona over two legs in the quarter-finals so would fancy their chances in the Turin return next week.

Gonzalo Higuain's brace, a goal in each half, has the Bianconeri well set for third Champions League final in three seasons of their own, which compares favourably with holders Real Madrid.

Who was the MotM? That's what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
