PSG Defeat Atalanta 2-1 In Champions League Quarter-Finals

Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday defeated Atalanta 2-1 with a stunning late comeback in the Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon.

PSG won the game with substitute Eric Choupo-Moting scoring the winner in the third minute of injury time.

Atalanta was on the brink of extending their remarkable European run on into the last four after Mario Pasalic gave the Italians a 27th-minute lead in the first game of the ‘Final Eight’ at an empty Estadio da Luz.

But PSG was rescued as Marquinhos came forward to scramble in a last-minute equaliser and they did not even need extra time to complete the turnaround, as Kylian Mbappe set up fellow substitute Choupo-Moting to win the game.

They will play RB Leipzig or Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.
