Monaco defeat Dortmund to advance to CL semi-final
AS Monaco battered Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the second leg for a 6-3 aggregate win in their Champions League quarterfinal clash. The Ligue 1 club, who entered the round-of-16 as an underdog, are headed to the semi-finals for the first time since 2004, reports Efe. Wednesday's contest at the Stade Louis II was played in the shadow of the bombing that marred last week's first leg in Dortmund. The Dortmund player who suffered a broken wrist in the attack on the team bus, Spanish defender Marc Bartra, was in the stands and received a Monaco shirt before the start of the match. After losing 3-2 at home in the first leg, the visitors had little choice but to go forward in numbers, leaving themselves vulnerable on the counter-attack. Three minutes in, Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki repelled a shot from Benjamin Mendy, but left the rebound for Kylian Mbappe, who hammered it home to put the hosts ahead 1-0.
