Tyler Adams’ late deflected strike saw RB Leipzig reach their first Champions League semi-finals after a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in Lisbon. Without star man Timo Werner, RB Leipzig opened the scoring five minutes into the second half when Spaniard Dani Olmo headed home Marcel Sabitzer’s cross.
Leipzig centre-back Marcel Halstenberg missed a recent friendly draw with Wolfsburg with a back injury, but was back in the squad and started.
Meanwhile, Atleti head coach Diego Simeone had a fully-fit squad from which to choose, however, Thomas Partey’s slight calf strain meant the midfielder had to settle for a place on the bench.
