Falcao has warned Monaco not to think Dortmund are out of the champions league yet, as they prepare for the second leg.

When the action got under way, hopes of a recovery from Dortmund were dealt an early setback when Mbappe swept Monaco in front after just three minutes.

The second-leg stalemate sealed a 3-0 win on aggregate and came six weeks after Barcelona's historic 6-1 thrashing of Paris Saint-Germain, when the home side became the first team to ever overturn a 4-0 loss in the competition.

The changes meant Tuchel sent his side out in a 3-5-2 formation, with Marco Reus - who missed the first leg - supporting one-time Monaco player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in attack.

The problem is "how to focus" on the Monaco game, said the German coach.

£30million is a steep price for a teenager, especially one that was previously training with the club, but rather than go for a budget route or gamble on another wide player like Sissoko, Tottenham should strongly consider pushing for Pulisic if they can't land Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha this summer.

And it was teenage sensation Mbappe who gave the visitors all to do after just three minutes.

After such a long journey to reach the Champions League semifinals, Monaco has no fear of who it plays next. "Eight days ago it was very hard to play this match seriously and to prepare for that match in the right way", he said.

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim: "Our head must be on tomorrow only, nothing else".

"It's not easy to play the Champions League and to try and win the French league at the same time", Jardim said of the domestic league leaders. We are trying to talk a lot among ourselves, to cope with it all, but we have also had professional help offered to us, which I believe is very important.

Falcao 26 goals this season confirmed his return to the highest level.

Last Tuesday in Germany, three explosions went off as the team headed to the stadium for the home leg against Monaco, leaving defender Marc Bartra needing hospital treatment following injuries to his wrist and arm after a window was shattered.

Monaco Interior Minister Patrice Cellario told L'Equipe newspaper that local authorities will make sure Borussia players feel in the principality.

Monaco authorities will also receive the support of about 350 French police officers in support of local security personnel deployed in and outside the stadium.

Reus was substituted after only 45 minutes to save energy ahead of the Champions League quarterfinal encounter in Monaco. Monaco are top of Ligue 1 with 77pts from 32 games (2.41pts per game), which is at least the equivalent of if not better than Dortmund's tally of 53pts from 29 games (1.73pts per game) in the Bundesliga. The night before, Dortmund's bus was bombed in an attack that we now know was quite serious.
