Dani Alves starred as Juventus defeated Monaco to reach the Champions League final on Tuesday night and he extended an impressive record in the process.

Why the hell did Barca let Alves go?

Over the past 11 years of his career, Alves has appeared in 13 major European and overseas finals, with his 14th now confirmed as Juve take on either Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid in Cardiff.

Not one to shy away from the limelight, the Brazilian full-back struck a stunning volley to help Massimiliano Allegri's side claim a 2-1 win over Monaco, defeating the French outfit 4-1 on aggregate.

Alves made his debut for Sevilla in 2002 after signing from Esporte Clube Bahia, appearing in his first European final for the club in the 2005-06 season.

That was a UEFA Cup meeting with Middlesbrough, which Sevilla won 4-0, while he appeared in three further finals with the Spanish club before making the switch to Barcelona in 2008.

During his eight years at Barca, Alves appeared in nine European and overseas finals, including three in the Champions League and two in the Club World Cup.

And to make matters worse for any fans of the Catalan club that are still ruing Alves's exit, the full-back is now two finals in front of Barca, who have appeared in 12 in the same period.
