Monaco vs Dortmund Champions League 2017 quarterfinal

Monaco vs Dortmund Champions League 2017 quarterfinal

Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel vented his frustration after local police delayed the team bus when it was ready to leave the players' hotel for Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal against Monaco.

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.

Tuchel complained his players had been "completely ignored" but, after a 3-1 Bundesliga win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, the 43-year-old said the incident was out of his side's system before the trip to the Stade Louis II.

"We have won nothing, but we have made history", declared Portuguese coach Jardim after the game, as his side extended a run that began in the third qualifying round against Fenerbahce last July, nine months ago.

"You come into such a game trying to have a clear mind to go out and turn the tie around, but with just an hour and a quarter to go before the match, we were not able to think about football at all and it wasn't ideal". "We know it will be very tough, but we have the energy and confidence we need to get a result".

Mbappe opened the scoring on the night after just three minutes, turning home a rebound after Roman Burki parried a Benjamin Mendy drive, as the teenager became the youngest player to score five times in the Champions League.

Monaco then doubled their lead on 17 minutes following a flowing break when Thomas Lemar curled the ball into the Dortmund box from the left and Falcao dispatched a diving header into the bottom right corner. Leading the way is Radamel Falcao, the Colombian striker and team captain having scored his 27th of the season against Dortmund in a campaign that has relaunched his career after miserable loan spells at Manchester United and Chelsea.

The goal was Mbappe's 16th in 16 matches for Monaco and marked his fifth in the knockout stage of the competition, tying Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo this term.

After the drama of last week's attack, this was a welcome return to euphoric, attacking football.

Consequently, Wager 365 are giving chances of 1/1 for Monaco to win against Dortmund on Wednesday.

"During the 90 minutes it was slightly easier for us than it was on Wednesday evening", Dortmund captain Marcel Schmelzer said.

Mbappe was sprung down the right channel moments later, but dragged his right-footed shot from an angle wide of the far post.

The whole Monaco bench rushed to jump on him: a symbolic image of Monaco's teamwork. "It wasn't a day for speaking about individuals".
