The Bayern Munich-Real Madrid Champions League quarterfinal chess match has seen its first real action, with Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal heading in a corner kick for Bayern.
Japan international Shinji Kagawa kept Borussia Dortmund's Champions League hopes alive with a timely finish from a well-worked attack.
Kagawa's goal made it 3-2, and elevated the Borussia Dortmund-Monaco tie to officially bonkers.
Thomas Tuchel sent on Christian Pulisic and Nuri Sahin to start the second half with Borussia Dortmund trailing Monaco 2-0, and the match has immediately turned in favor of the German club.
Dortmund have now halved the deficit after a ridiculously acrobatic backheel flick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found Shinji Kagawa behind the defense. He squared it to Ousmane Dembele and the youngster tapped it in.
It’s been a difficult opening 45 for Borussia Dortmund against AS Monaco in their Champions League quarterfinal first leg at the Westfalenstadion. The match, which was postponed until today after a terrorist attack on Dortmund’s team bus, has been evenly contest, but Monaco have benefitted from two refereeing decisions and a comical own goal.
Barcelona will return to the Camp Nou for their quarterfinal second leg with less to do than in the round of 16, but that truth only goes as far as the paper it’s printed on. This Juventus side are a completely different animal than the PSG one Barcelona managed to overcome.
This is not a pretty goal by any stretch of the imagination, but it was Hector Moreno’s sixth league goal of the season for PSV Eindhoven. All of those goals have been scored while Moreno’s been playing center back for PSV. That’s insane.
