Champions League

Paris St Germain's Kylian Mbappe scored twice in the second half to help guide his side to a 4-1 comeback win at 10-man Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final second leg and wrap up a 6-4 aggregate victory on Tuesday (April 16)

Raphinha gave Barca the lead in the 12th minute but they were reduced to 10 men just before the half-hour mark after last man Ronald Araujo was shown a red card for a foul on Bradley Barcola

Former Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele fired home for the visitors in the 40th to equalise on the night and Vitinha put them ahead with a strike from the edge of the box in the 54th.

Joao Cancelo fouled Dembele in the 61st minute to concede a penalty that Mbappe fired into the top corner.

As Barca tried to find a goal to take the game to extra time, Mbappe made the most of a counter attack to score from close-range and wrap up a semi-final place against Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund stormed into the Champions League semi-finals with a rip-roaring 4-2 home win over Atletico Madrid that saw them fight back from a 2-1 defeat in the first leg to win the tie 5-4 on aggregate.

Julian Brandt put Dortmund level on aggregate in the 34th minute, and five minutes later Dortmund took the lead in the quarter-final tie as Ian Maatsen cut in from the left and drilled a perfectly-placed shot in at the foot of the far post.

tletico coach Diego Simeone made a triple substitution at the break and it paid dividends almost immediately as Dortmund defender Mats Hummels turned the ball into his own net in the 49th minute, and substitute Angel Correa put the Spaniards back in the lead in the 64th minute, scoring at the second attempt

However, the home side weren't done and striker Niclas Fuellkrug levelled the tie again with a brilliant glancing header, with Marcel Sabitzer drilling home the winner in front of an ecstatic crowd three minutes later.t
