RB Leipzig pulled themselves into the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in their short history with an unlikely 2-1 win over the highly experienced Atletico Madrid in Lisbon on Thursday.

United States midfielder Tyler Adams snatched victory in the 88th minute with a strike from outside the box which took a heavy deflection off Atletico defender Stefan Savic to flummox goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The German side went ahead early in the second half with a header from Spanish forward Dani Olmo.

But a disjointed Atletico was shaken into life when record signing Joao Felix came off the bench, earning and scoring a penalty to level in the 71st minute.

Atletico, beaten finalists in 2014 and 2016, looked more likely to score the next goal as they continued to pour forward.

Man City must be at best to win – Silva

David Silva

Manchester City will need to be at their best level to win the games and try to reach the final, midfielder Bernardo Silva has said.

Silva said Manchester City’s task in the Champions League has not been made any easier by the exits of Real Madrid and Liverpool as every team is capable of winning.

Pep Guardiola’s City eliminated Real in the last 16 while defending champions Liverpool were knocked out by Atletico Madrid.

“The fact that Liverpool are out, Real Madrid are out: it’s not going to make our path easier.

“All the teams in Lisbon are here because they deserve it. We need to be at our best level to win the games and try to reach the final.”

City are firm favourites heading into Saturday’s quarter-final against Olympique Lyonnais but Silva said they would not get complacent.

“Anything can happen, Juventus were knocked out by Lyon, we lost against Tottenham Hotspur last year in the quarter-finals,” Silva told the City website.

“We have seen lots of surprises. It’s very difficult to predict the results in this competition,” he said.

Silva, who was born in Lisbon and began his career at Benfica, said the prospect of lifting the trophy on home soil gave him extra motivation.

“Winning this competition has always been a target for the players and the club. It will be very special to win it. For me, even more so because it’s my city,” he added.
