Eleven-time European champions Real, who eliminated Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals, could become the first club in the Champions League era to win the competition in successive seasons.

The Madrid clubs have met in the Champions League final in two of the last three years, with Real coming out on top on both occasions.

The other tie sees Ligue 1 leaders Monaco take on Italian champions Juventus.

Juventus, European champions in 1985 and 1996, lost the final to Barcelona in 2015 but defeated Luis Enrique’s side 3-0 on aggregate in the last round.
