Falcao Mbappe

As Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim promised, The Monégasques stayed true to their attacking attitude and recorded the second win against Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal stage.

The Ligue 1 leaders managed to score 6 and concede 3 across two legs of beautiful football.

“It could have been 5-3 or 6-3 because both teams missed several chances,” said Jardim. “We knew that they give a lot of space and we took advantage from it. Now, regardless of who we will take on next, we will be facing a very experienced team.

Young sensation Kylian Mbappe and veteran Radamel Falcao scored two goals in the first half and set up a difficult task for the visitors. Borussia’s Marco Reus brought one back in the beginning of the second half, however Monaco’s fresh sub-Valere Germain scored the 3rd goal in the 81st minute and killed all chances for Thomas Tuchel’s team.
