Jurgen Klopp's men dominated Real Madrid but were unable to score the crucial third goal on the night, while PSG crumbled at Stamford Bridge

Tuesday's Champions League quarterfinal second legs were enthralling affairs as Real Madrid edged past Borussia Dortmund despite threats of a miracle comeback, while Chelsea left it late to knockout Paris Saint-Germain.

Marco Reus' double in the first half set up a potential shock comeback for Jurgen Klopp's men but they could not grab a third in the 2-0 win and ultimately crashed out, losing 3-2 on aggregate. Meanwhile, substitute Demba Ba knocked out Laurent Blanc's men at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea won 3-3 on aggregate thanks to the away goals rule.
