Dortmund, PSG set date for semis after clinching UEFA Quater finals

Borussia Dortmund staged a remarkable comeback to secure their spot in the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in over a decade. After a 2-1 loss in the first leg against Atletico Madrid, Dortmund turned the tide with a brilliant second-half display, winning 5-4 on aggregate.

Dortmund had not reached the last four of the Champions League since they finished runners-up in 2012-13.

Meanwhile,PSG also booked their place in the semi-finals with a resounding victory over Barcelona. Led by Kylian Mbappe’s brace, PSG overturned a first-leg deficit to advance, despite a chaotic encounter in Spain. This sets up an intriguing semi-final clash between PSG and Borussia Dortmund.

On Tuesday the 25-year-old scored twice as PSG beat five-time champions Barcelona 6-4 on aggregate to reach the semi-final of Europe’s top competition, where they will face Borussia Dortmund.

The first was a penalty – calmly smacked home after Joao Cancelo brought down Ousmane Dembele – before the ball came to him on the edge of the area in the 89th minute. Mbappe’s first effort was denied by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, but he smashed the rebound into the net to round off a superb night for PSG.

The semi-final first legs are scheduled for April 30th and May 1st, with the return legs set for May 7th and 8th.
