Borussia Dortmund 3-2 Malaga

Dortmund were 2-1 down in added time on Tuesday when Marco Reus and then Felipe Santana grabbed 91st and 93rd-minute goals respectively to put them through 3-2 on aggregate after last Wednesday’s goalless first leg.

Borussia Coach Jurgen Klopp:

“Football showed both sides of its face, the bitterly disappointed defeated and the overjoyed winners,” said Klopp, as his side reached the last four of the Champions League for the first time since 1998.

It’s not often we have needed so much luck, we weren’t so good, but despite that, we won.

“Over the two games I think we are a deserving winner, but if we play like tonight again we won’t win the Champions League.

“Now we have reached our target of a semi-final. It’s crazy. I think I need to see a doctor!”

“I can understand when you lose a game like that, you feel bitterly hard done by, but over the two legs I think we deserved to win.”
