Champions League:Leipzig shocks Atletico to reach semi-final

German side RB Leipzig shocked Atletico Madrid when they pulled a surprising win and qualify for the Champions League semi-final.

The two clubs were goalless in the first half and even displayed a poor approach until when Dani Olmo broke the deadlock in the 50th minute.

Diego Simeone brought in Joao Felix as a substitute who completely changed the match and caused the first goal and equalizer for Atletico Madrid.

They however punished late in the game when Tyler Adams found the back of the net with two minutes left in the match.

Atletico Madrid looked reluctant as they chased their third Champions League final spot in the last six seasons.

RB Leipzing came into the match unsure of their performance and options upfront following the departure of Timo Werner to Chelsea.

In Germany, Werner had a record 34 goals for the club in a single season making him a target for most top clubs in Europe.

Former Chelsea Striker Diego Costa was rendered useless at the front thanks to Dayot Upamecano who also won the man of the match.
