Monaco took a step into the semi finals of the Champions league by beating Borussia Dortmund in a thrilling game in Germany
The rearranged quarter-final first leg was played just a day removed from an attack on Dortmund’s team bus which hospitalised defender Marc Bartra, and Thomas Tuchel’s fears that his side could struggle to compete were borne out in a one-sided first half.
Though Monaco lacked first-choice full-backs Djibril Sidibe and Benjamin Mendy, as well as midfield shield Tiemoue Bakayoko, they stifled Dortmund smartly, while the hosts were rickety in defence.
