A wonderful morning to all our readers out there, it’s time to check out the results of the football matches played yesterday Thursday August 13, 2020
RB Leipzig secured a place in the Champions League semifinals for the first time since they were found back in 2009 after beating Atletico Madrid 2-1 last night.
The German side were without talisman Timo Werner who moved to Chelsea earlier in the summer but that didn’t matter because they came out on top becoming the first German team since Schalke in 2010/11 to reach the Champions League semifinals outside of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
Dani Olmo gave Julian Nagelsmann’s side the lead five minutes into the second half, becoming the second player after Erling Haaland to score Champions League goals for two different clubs this season.
Atletico Madrid equalised from the penalty spot thanks to substitute Joao Felix who was fouled and also converted the spot-kick 19 minutes to the end of the match.
The match was surging towards an end before Leipzig took the lead again just a few minutes before additional time through Tyler Adams who scored his first goal in 28 appearances for the German side.
Atletico Madrid became helpless and RB Leipzig will now face Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-final.
