Barcelona's hopes of staging another sensational Champions League comeback fell flat against a hardened Juventus side, who held the Catalans to a 0-0 draw at the Nou Camp to reach the semi-finals 3-0 on aggregate. There were two second leg quarterfinals played on Wednesday.
Wednesday's second leg takes place at Monaco's Stade Louis II, with the Ligue 1 club aiming to reach a first Champions League semifinal since 2004, when they went on to lose in the final to Porto. "We made too many basic errors in terms of our positioning and we didn't close them down enough in defence". We are 90 minutes away from qualifying.
Thomas Tuchel has admitted his Borussia Dortmund side simply weren't up to scratch as they crashed out of the Champions League.
In the balance. Borussia Dortmund trail Monaco by 3-2 in this interesting Champions League tie.
Monaco may not have been directly targeted in the attack but the events and subsequent postponement were still hard to deal with for Leonardo Jardim and his young side, who saw teenage prodigy Kylian Mbappe score twice in the first leg.
Titleholders Real Madrid, last year's runners-up Atletico Madrid or Juventus await in the semi-finals but Monaco will not abandon their style according to Jardim, who could not hide his pride post-match.
UEFA said heavy traffic was to blame for the delay in the visitors arriving, but Tuchel told Sky Germany: "Let's say that the incident is very unfortunate". They have played 54 games, more than anyone else among Europe's top sides, but are scoring at an average of 2.6 goals per game. "It was a very hard situation for the players so we should not criticize them too much".
"It's been an incredible season and we're a bunch of mates who manage to enjoy ourselves out on the pitch", Mbappe said. "We had the mind set we needed to win here, but obviously all of a sudden it wasn't possible to think about football".
"I feel valued and supported by everyone in the club, by the players and from the supporters", Falcao said.
The hosts poured forward with ruthless efficiency in the first half, with the pace of Benjamin Mendy and Thomas Lemar creating an overlap on Monaco's left that Dortmund had no answer to.
