Leipzig 2-1 Atlético Madrid: Leipzig break Atletico hearts late on. Leipzig will now take on PSG in Lisbon in Tuesday’s semi-finals.
Tyler Adams’ late deflected strike saw Leipzig reach their first Champions League semi-finals after a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in Lisbon.
The Bundesliga side – without star man Timo Werner – opened the scoring five minutes into the second half when Spaniard Dani Olmo headed home Marcel Sabitzer’s cross.
However, Diego Simeone’s team drew level thanks to substitute Joao Felix, who both won and converted a penalty with 19 minutes to go.
With extra-time looming, though, Leipzig won it thanks to their own substitute as Adams saw his low drive deflect in past a helpless Jan Oblak via Stefan Savic’s outstretched leg.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side will now face Paris Saint-Germain for a place in the final on Tuesday night.
