Mbappe Adds New Champions League Scoring Record To Early Career Achievements

21 Avril 2017

The Germans bowed out leaving Monaco to join Real Madrid, Juventus and Atletico Madrid in Friday's draw for the Champions League's semi-finals after winning their quarter-final 6-3 on aggregate against Dortmund.

Those games could go a long way to shaping Monaco's season.

"We are a very close group, we all want the same thing, we flourish together, and that's reflected on the pitch", the French worldwide said.

Wednesday's contest at the Stade Louis II was played in the shadow of the bombing that marred last week's first leg in Dortmund.

The first of Monaco's 141 goals was scored by striker Radamel Falcao way back on July 27, against Turkish side Fenerbahce in the third qualifying round of the Champions League.

"We knew we needed a performance of the highest level to turn things around, but that wasn't the case", he said.

The home leg in Germany was overshadowed by an attack on the Dortmund team bus as it headed to the stadium.

Following a five-minute delay to kick off after the Dortmund team bus had been held up by police en route to the stadium, Mbappe fired the hosts into an early lead. "We're the team that's playing the most in Europe".

"We're competitors and we want to be involved in every competition".

"But meanwhile, we carry on normal economic exchanges and trade with all parties including North Korea", Lu said . Navy this month struck a Syrian airfield with 59 Tomahawk missiles after a chemical weapons attack.

"After what happened to us, there is hardly a worse feeling than sitting together again on a bus which isn't moving".

Attack-minded left back Bernard Mendy - newly called up to the France team along with Mbappe - hit a fierce shot that goalkeeper Roman Burki spilled. He made his goal look so simple, to caress it in the corner like he did.

The visiting side fell further into the hole when Radamel Falcao connected on a header in the 17th minute, his fifth goal of the current Champions League tourney.

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

Dortmund's "You'll never walk alone" anthem, a song notably shared with English club Liverpool, was played at the ground to mark the solidarity between the two clubs in the wake of last week's bus attack. Monaco was stretched down both flanks but, equally, Dortmund was increasingly exposed to Monaco's slick counterattacking.

KYLIAN MBAPPE has become the first player to score in all four of his first Champions League knock-out games.

The whole Monaco bench rushed to jump on him: a symbolic image of Monaco's teamwork.

Tuchel pointed to the fact that the players may have not been able to produce their best. "It wasn't a day for speaking about individuals".
