Monaco captain Ludovic Giuly singled out Flavio Roma for special praise after overcoming Chelsea to book their place in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

Italian goalkeeper Roma kept Monaco in the contest with a string of fine saves in the first half and Giuly believes Monaco again showed their spirit by coming back from two goals down to earn a draw.

"It is magic to be in the final. It is fantastic," said Giuly. 

"At the start of the competition who could say we would reach the final?

"Once again it was a great match in a mad atmosphere, with a lot of fear when we were losing 2-0. But we could react, it is our great strength.

"In the first half, Roma had a perfect match."
