Champions League: Dortmund defeat Atletico Madrid as PSG humiliate Barca to reach semi-final

Borussia Dortmund rallied to defeat Atletico Madrid 4-2 in their quarter-final second leg on Tuesday, securing a 5-4 aggregate victory and their first Champions League semi-final appearance since 2013.

After trailing 2-1 in the first leg, hosts Dortmund stormed into a 2-0 half-time lead but fell behind again in the tie before Niclas Fuellkrug and Marcel Sabitzer struck in the space of three minutes to put the Bundesliga club through.

In the same event, French giants, Paris Saint-Germain qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final after making a turnaround from the 3-2 first-leg defeat in France.

Two goals a piece from Dembele and Vitinha, and two spot kicks from captain Kylian Mbappe were enough for the Parisians to seal a place in the semi-final with a 6-4 aggregate score.

Barca coach, Xavi Hernandez and defender Ronald Araujo were both given their marching orders.
