Mbappe helps fire Monaco to Champions League semis

Share

The form of Mbappe is likely to be key to Monaco's prospects of reaching the Champions League final for the first time since losing 3-0 to Porto in 2004.

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.

Radamel Falcao has warned Monaco can not actually afford to take qualification for granted when they confront Borussia Dortmund in the next leg of the Champions League quarterfinal.

"We are all aware of what happened in Dortmund and we have it in mind".

But it was Monaco who had the best chances to score again after that, with Burki tipping over Almamy Toure's looping header and Falcao squandering a fine chance before substitute Germain made sure of their place in the last four.

AS Monaco are through to the semi-finals of the Champions League after brushing aside Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

"We are here to win by two goals".

Monaco will discover their semi-final opponents when the draw is made on Friday, with Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus also progressing.

"We started well with one or two unsafe moves where we found some space and then conceded an unlucky goal", said Tuchel.

Mbappe and resurgent forward Radamel Falcao scored early goals to put immediate pressure on Dortmund, which trailed 3-2 from the first leg of the quarterfinal in Germany.

"The police didn't let our team bus leave the hotel without giving the reason for around 20 minutes", Dortmund said on its official Twitter account. "We want to go out and enjoy it but all four sides are capable of winning the competition", warned Jardim, whose team were visited by Prince Albert in the dressing room afterwards.

"I had the feeling that we were focused and full of joy to play this game but then there were awkward mindsets going around". "I think the players are ready and are working well". We're the team that's played the most games in all of Europe. Monaco was stretched down both flanks but, equally, Dortmund was increasingly exposed to Monaco's slick counterattacking.
