Monaco defeat Dortmund to advance to Champions League semis

Monaco defeat Dortmund to advance to Champions League semis

He had only just come on for Mbappe when he converted Lemar's square ball with his first touch with nine minutes to go, as Monaco join Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the semi-final draw. They've only won four of their last 13 away competitive matches and lost 1-0 to Benfica the last time they played on the road in the Champions League. Next up is a charge for the Ligue One title plus a Champions League semi-final and I can't wait to see Mbappe plays in those games. "It was a very hard situation for the players so we should not criticize them too much".

"Tomorrow it will be a qualifying match and we are only halfway through the quarter-final".

With his club still going through the darkest hours of their history, Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel is counting on Reus to give his team an "energy boost".

Last week's first leg was postponed by 24 hours after the Dortmund team bus was attacked with explosives on its way to the stadium. Benjamin Mendy made a powerful run through the midfield before lashing a left-footed shot that Roman Burki couldn't handle, and the 18-year-old France forward was there to slot home from close range.

The visitors started slowly, and the task of overturning a first-leg deficit became substantially trickier after conceding two early goals and watching Nuri Sahin's curling free-kick strike a post at the other end.

Dortmund said the bus was stopped by police for 20 minutes, with kick-off then delayed by five minutes.

The visiting side fell further into the hole when Radamel Falcao connected on a header in the 17th minute, his fifth goal of the current Champions League tourney.

That's by virtue of scoring home and away against Dortmund in the quarter-finals, as he did against Manchester City in the last 16. Dortmund's fans rallied to help their stranded Monaco counterparts by offering them a place to stay for free on Tuesday night, while Monaco's fans chanted for Dortmund for long spells during the rescheduled game.

Monaco are not just fighting for glory in Europe - they are also top of the French league and in the French Cup semifinals, but fatigue is their biggest foe now. I have brought a quality squad here and we're capable of winning by two clear goals.
