Madrid teams drawn together


Real Madrid will face city rivals Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

Zinedine Zidane's side defeated Bayern Munich in an enthralling quarter-final and next up for the reigning European champions is a meeting with their nearest rivals, in what is a repeat of last year's final, which Real won on penalties.

Atletico Madrid ended Leicester City's run in the competition on Tuesday night and they will be hoping to exact revenge on Real after losing to them in last year's decider.

The second semi-final sees Monaco face Juventus.

Monaco saw off the challenge of Borussia Dortmund over two legs, while Juventus were convincing winners over Barcelona at the quarter-final stage.
