PSG beat Dortmund to reach Champions League quarter-finals


Paris Saint-Germain beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 behind closed doors at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday to reach the Champions League quarter-finals 3-2 on aggregate.

In the other last 16 clash reining champions Liverpool were beating Atletico Madrid 1-0 after 90 minutes, taking the tie into extra-time, Deutsche press agency (dpa) reported.

French champions PSG were bidding to overturn a 2-1 first leg defeat but had to do so without any fans after the stadium was closed as part of measures to tackle the spread of the new coronavirus.

World record signing Neymar was heavily involved in the early stages for PSG and he broke the deadlock after 28 minutes when he headed home from Angel Di Maria's corner.

PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas twice denied Dortmund's English forward Jadon Sancho before the French side doubled their lead on their night in first-half stoppage time.

Juan Bernat steered home Pablo Sarabia's low cross from the right to give Thomas Tuchel's side a vital second against his former team.

Roman Burki made a good save to stop Di Maria adding a third with a free-kick and Emre Can was sent off in the final stages for the frustrated Bundesliga side.
