Champions League: Atletico knock out defending champions Liverpool, PSG overcome Dortmund

Liverpool’s hopes of defending their Champions League title were ended as they fell to a stunning last-16 defeat by Atletico Madrid.

After losing the first leg 1-0, Georginio Wijnaldum’s header brought Jurgen Klopp’s side level on the stroke of half-time at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino scored minutes into extra time before Marcos Llorente put Atletico ahead on away goals.


He then added another before Alvaro Morata sealed the win.

Meanwhile in Paris, hosts Paris St-Germain rid themselves of their Champions League curse as they overturned a 2-1 deficit against Borussia Dortmund inside an empty Parc des Princes to reach the last eight.


Concerns over the coronavirus meant fans were barred, but many gathered outside the stadium and celebrated when Neymar headed PSG into the lead.

Juan Bernat made it 3-2 on aggregate when he turned in Pablo Sarabia’s ball.

Dortmund’s Emre Can saw red late on after two bookings in quick succession.

PSG’s players celebrated wildly at full-time before greeting the hundreds of supporters who remained outside the Parc des Princes.
