Mbappe sets Champions League record as Monaco oust Dortmund

21 April, 2017, 03:41 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

The team bus of German Bundesliga soccer club Borussia Dortmund is escorted by police officers as it arrives at the Louis stadium before the Champions League quarterfinal second leg soccer match between Monaco and Dortmund in Monaco, Wednesday April 19, 2017.

Monaco have reached the Champions League semifinals after defeating Borussia Dortmund 6-3 on aggregate.

Falcao's strike partner Kylian Mbappe scored twice in last week's opener to assist his side to set up a 3-2 edge ahead of the return clash in the Stade Louis II on Wednesday. Reus could be a deciding factor in the second leg.

German midfielder Marco Reus netted a consolation for Dortmund at the start of the second half, with Monaco substitute Germain adding a late third for Leonardo Jardim's well-drilled outfit just moments after coming on.

"But after 16 or 17 minutes nothing had happened and we asked why we were not moving".

Leaving aside the hard circumstances of the first leg, the scale of the task facing 1997 European champions Dortmund is a huge one - prior to this week only two teams had won a Champions League knockout tie after losing the first leg at home.

Titleholders Real Madrid, last year's runners-up Atletico Madrid or Juventus await in the semi-finals but Monaco will not abandon their style according to Jardim, who could not hide his pride post-match.

If Dortmund are going to overcome Monaco, with away goals certainly not on their side, then Reus will need to perform. Prior to Wednesday's game, Dortmund's bus was held for almost 20 minutes by police at the team hotel.

"We try not to let pressure get into our heads and play the way we usually do".

The two-time France worldwide lashed home a loose ball inside the Dortmund box, making him the first player to score in his first four consecutive Champions League knockout games. We play attacking football.

"In the first leg it was impossible to approach the game with the concentration and mentality needed to deliver a top-level performance". We're the team that has played the most in Europe. "I know the situation is very hard but I remain optimistic".

However, Germain put an end to any hopes Dortmund still held in the 81st minute, poking home Lemar's deflected cross from the left to complete the victory on the night.
