The Ligue 1 leaders saw off Borussia Dortmund in the last eight, and Friday's draw has pitted Leonardo Jardim's explosive side up against Italian champions Juve.

Monaco have blitzed their way to the last four - scoring 12 times in their four knockout matches - while the Bianconeri have yet to concede in the knockout rounds - conceding just two goals in 10 matches all told.

Now the two will meet in a repeat of the 2014-15 quarter-final - when Juve claimed a 1-0 aggregate success - and Vasilyev believes that while Juve are stronger, the Principality club will be unafraid.
