Shots On Target
That’s all for now. Goodbye!
It is so cruel on Atalanta, who would have been worthy semi-finalists, but they can still look back on their campaign with immense pride. Tuchel, meanwhile, may have just salvaged his job with that late comeback, though PSG will have to be much better if they are to get past either RB Leipzig or Atletico Madrid, who play on Thursday.
It’s all over in Lisbon, with PSG having come from behind to book their place in the Champions League semi-finals in dramatic fashion. Marquinhos got their equaliser in the 90th minute, with unlikely hero Choupo-Moting then on hand to score the winner two minutes later.
90' + 7'
FULL TIME: ATALANTA 1-2 PSG.
90' + 6'
CHANCE! That could have been 2-2! Muriel raced through one-on-one but, at the vital moment, he got the ball stuck under his feet and the opportunity goes begging.
90' + 4'
There were just 149 seconds between PSG's equaliser and Choupo-Moting putting the French side 2-1 ahead, and the French side have now scored in each of their last 33 UEFA Champions League games, currently the longest run in the competition.
90' + 3'
Mbappe’s introduction helped push Atalanta further back, and ultimately he is the man who has made the difference with a perfectly timed run and pass into Choupo-Moting, who could well prove to be an unlikely hero.
90' + 3'
GOOOOOAAALLLL!!! PSG HAVE TAKEN THE LEAD! Oh my word, what a turnaround. Mbappe got on the end of Neymar’s slick pass and kept his calm to send in a low cross with, of all people, Choupo-Moting on hand to tuck it home.
90' + 1'
That is so cruel on Atalanta, who have been brilliant, but a bit of luck has gone PSG’s way.
Neymar has missed plenty of chances tonight but in the big moment he managed to get it to Marquinhos. That being said, it may well have been a miskick.
GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! PSG ARE LEVEL! Neymar gets in at the far post and puts it into the six-yard box. Marquinhos gets a toe on it, with Caldera only able to divert it in. It’s 1-1!
Da Riva has just come on, though he has already gone down with an apparent hamstring issue. He’ll have no choice but to stay on, however.
Atalanta have conceded 27 fouls so far in this game, the most in a single Champions League match since Basel vs Ludogorets in November 2016 (30).
That's a rash, wild effort from Draxler, who has blazed over from the edge of the box.
Choupo-Moting rises to meet a cross from the right, but he sends his header well over the crossbar.
Neymar is barged into by Palomino down on the flank, and Atalanta’s defender receives a booking.
J. Da Riva
Zapata, meanwhile, is the other player to make way. Teenager Da Riva is on for his Champions League debut.
We’re into the closing stages, and there will be two changes for Atalanta. First, Castagne has replaced Gosens.
HUGE CHANCE! Mbappe gets through but, from a tight angle, his path to goal is blocked by a combination of Palomino and Sportiello.
After a disappointing performance, Icardi has made way for Choupo-Moting.
A final two changes from PSG. First, Navas has been forced off with that injury, with Rico on in his place.
Muriel makes up a lot of ground to get on the end of an overhit cross from Malinovskiy, but the former Sevilla striker can’t quite keep it in play.
De Roon is furious after he goes in for a tackle with Neymar, who makes the most of it. Referee Taylor did not fall for any theatrics, however.
Neymar stands up three defenders and space opens up for a shot. Again, though, the effort is disappointing, as Sportiello gets down to the forward’s timid strike.
Atalanta have been camped in their own half for much of the second half, but PSG have lacked the spark to really breakthrough. The French champions have plenty of attacking talent on the field, though.
Paredes has gone into the book for a foul on Malinovskiy.
SAVE! Mbappe gets in down the left and heads directly into the area. He gets the ball out of his feet and drills a low strike at goal, but Sportiello makes the stop at his near post.
Rico is ready and waiting on the touchline, but for now Navas will carry on.
Draxler has also come on, with Herrera the man to make way.
More changes for PSG, as Tuchel rolls the dice. Paredes is on, replacing Gueye.
To add to PSG’s frustrations, Navas is down with an injury, and receiving treatment.
Atalanta's goalscorer Pasalic has made way, with Muriel coming on.
Despite their possession, PSG are yet to register a shot on target in the second half. Indeed, they have only tested Sportiello once in the entire match so far.
Toloi has become the fourth Atalanta player to receive a booking.
Mbappe has wasted no time in getting himself involved, and is taking up some promising positions out on the left, with Neymar having moved into the middle. However, Atalanta have dropped back and, for now, are soaking up the pressure. There is plenty of time to go, though.
PSG are yet to win a single game against Italian opposition in the Champions League.
Mbappe is immediately involved as he cruises down the left. He has two players to aim for in the box, but puts too much on his cross.
And here is Mbappe for PSG! Tuchel has had little choice but to turn to the striker, who has replaced Sarabia. Can he inspire the French side?
Palomino is also on for Atalanta, replacing Djimsiti.
Changes are afoot! Atalanta have made a move, with captain Gomez making way for Malinovskiy.
CHANCE! That’s a huge opportunity for a second for Atalanta! They kept the ball alive from a free-kick, with centre-back Djimsiti meeting it on the volley. However, from five yards out, his effort is a wild one and slices wide.
Atalanta, with 23 to their name, have been shown more yellow cards than any other side in this season's Champions League.
Another booking for PSG, as they begin to get frustrated. Herrera has received a caution for bundling into Gomez.
Bernat could well be on thin ice, having just lunged in on Zapata. That was not a smart move after he had just received a yellow card, but he escapes with a warning.
Atalanta threaten to break, but Bernat halts them in their tracks with a robust challenge on Pasalic, with the full-back receiving a booking.
Zapata has now gone into the book, for a foul on Kehrer.
Neymar tries his luck with a free-kick from 30 yards out, but De Roon gets in the way and deflects it out for a corner.
M. de Roon
A booking for De Room, who brought down Neymar in Atalanta's half.
Djimsiti gets on the end of an outswinging corner, but a PSG defender manages to prevent the Atalanta man getting a clean header on it and his effort loops onto the roof of the net.
The game is back up and running in Lisbon! Mbappe has been warming up at half-time, and PSG may well need their young star soon.
Though Neymar has been unusually wasteful in front of goal, he has been by far PSG’s most potent attacking threat, and Tuchel needs more from the rest of his side. He has Mbappe in reserve, of course.
Atalanta lead at the break in what has been a pulsating tie – Pasalic’s superb strike having put the Serie A side ahead. Neymar has had two great chances for PSG, but wasted them both.
45' + 2'
HALF-TIME: ATALANTA 1-0 PSG.
45' + 1'
Freuler brings down Herrara and receives a booking.
Atalanta have not been afraid to get stuck into PSG in midfield, with Herrera unable to cement any authority on the Ligue 1 champions’ play so far, with their chances coming through quick interplay involving Neymar and the other forwards.
CHANCE! Neymar gets in once again, but from a tight angle, he hammers his effort 10 yards wide of goal. Surely he won’t let his next opportunity go to waste?
Following his assist for Pasalic's opener, no player has been involved in more goals for Atalanta in all competitions this season than Zapata, who has scored 19 goals and set up a further seven.
Djimsiti has gone into the book for a foul on Icardi.
Neymar’s effort is on target and destined for the right-hand corner, but Sportiello had tracked it all the way and makes a relatively comfortable stop.
PSG break at pace, with Sarabia playing a crisp one-two with Neymar before attempting to lay it back to Gueye. The pass is intercepted, but Gueye recovers in order to win a free-kick, just shy of 30 yards out from goal.
PSG have got plenty of joy when attacking through Neymar down the left, with the forward exposing Atalanta’s high line. However, his team-mates haven't done enough to support him so far.
Pasalic has been involved in five goals in his last six Champions League games, scoring three times and providing two assists.
CLOSE! Fantastic work from Neymar, who cuts inside from the left and, from a standing start, takes on several defenders before getting a shot off which whistles just wide.
Zapata wanted to get a shot off, but saw Pasalic in a better position and just managed to get the ball through to his team-mate.
GOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!! ATALANTA TAKE THE LEAD! What a strike from Pasalic, who has curled a wonderful effort beyond Navas, who could only help it in. Zapata bundled the ball through to him, and Pasalic showed no hesitation. Atalanta 1-0 PSG.
Despite losing their opening three games this season, Atalanta are the first Champions League debutants to reach the quarter-finals of the competition since Leicester City in 2016-17 and the first Italian side to do so since Lazio in the 1999-00 campaign.
Neymar gets beyond Hateboer with some great footwork and drills in a low cross, but there are plenty of defenders on hand to clear it.
Gueye dives in late on Gomez, handing Atalanta a free-kick in a dangerous position down the left. Gomez takes it, but Zapata’s header is directed straight at Navas.
Awful from Neymar! The Brazil star gets in down the left but, with Icardi in support, he seems to get caught in two minds and – rather than shoot or pass – he sends a poor attempted cross out of play.
Sarabia combines excellently with Neymar and makes a blistering run down the left. He battles with De Roon and is convinced he has won a corner, but referee Anthony Taylor awards Atalanta a goal-kick.
Thiago Silva's involvement tonight means that he equals Marco Verratti's tally of 58 appearances for Paris in Europe – a club record.
What a save! That’s another wonderful stop from Navas, who lunged to his left to keep out Caldera’s header. It would not have counted, as Atalanta’s defender was offside, though Navas was not to know that.
CLOSE! Brilliant save from Navas! Gomez picks out Hateboer with an excellent cross, and the wing-back sends a powerful header down into the ground, but PSG’s goalkeeper makes a superb stop high to his left.
It has been a scrappy start. Atalanta are adept at playing on the break, with the pace of Zapata and Gomez a really useful outlet. PSG, meanwhile, are attempting to get their passing game going.
This is the first competitive game between Atalanta and PSG. Atalanta's only previous encounter with a French club in European competition was against Lyon in the 2017-18 UEFA Europa League group stages – the Bergamo side drew 1-1 in France and won 1-0 at home.
Chances for both sides in the opening minutes, though it is Atalanta who can consider themselves most fortunate not to be behind. Neymar’s combination play with Icardi to get past the last defender was sublime, but the finish failed to match.
WHAT A MISS! Oh my word, what a terrible miss that is from – of all people – Neymar. Mbappe has his head in his hands in the stand, after watching his strike partner race through one-on-one with Sportiello, only to slice a dreadful attempt wide.
CHANCE! Atalanta break at pace, with the ball played down the left channel into Gomez. He gets a shot straight off, but Navas is equal to it.
Atalanta were on the attack straight away, though the move was snuffed out by PSG, who patiently worked their way forward without really testing their opposition.
KICK-OFF! After a moment of silence to pay respect to the lives lost around the world due to coronavirus, Atalanta get proceedings underway.
The teams are out in Lisbon, and we’re just moments away from kick-off. Is this the year that PSG final get into the final stages of the Champions League, or will Atalanta – who hail from Bergamo, one of the worst-affected areas by COVID-19 in Italy – cause an upset?
The big news for PSG is that one of their talismen – Mbappe – has made the bench, after he recovered from an injury suffered in the win over Saint-Etienne last month. It will be a huge boost to Tuchel, who has made seven changes from the side which started in a friendly against Sochaux on August 5.
PSG SUBSTITUTES: Kays Ruiz-Atal, Loic Mbe Soh, Julian Draxler, Mitchel Bakker, Sergio Rico, Colin Dagba, Arnaud Kalimuendo Muinga, Leandro Paredes, Marcin Bulka, Abdou Diallo, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Kylian Mbappe.
PSG (4-3-3) Keylor Navas; Thilo Kehrer, Thiago Silva, Presnel Kimpembe, Juan Bernat; Idrissa Gueye, Marquinhos, Ander Herrera; Pablo Sarabia, Mauro Icardi, Neymar.
Gasperini has made two changes from the Atalanta side which was beaten by Inter in their final Serie A game of the season, with goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, who suffered an injury last time out, and right wing-back Castagne dropping out. In come Sportiello and Hateboer.
ATALANTA SUBSTITUTES: Bosko Sutalo, Jose Luis Palomino, Lennart Czyborra, Luis Muriel, Roberto Piccoli, Ruslan Malinovskiy, Jacopa Da Riva, Timothy Castagne, Raoul Bellanova, Ludovico Gelmi, Francesco Rossi, Ebrima Colley.
ATALANTA (3-4-3): Marco Sportiello; Rafael Toloi, Mattia Caldara, Berat Djimsiti; Hans Hateboer, Marten de Roon, Remo Freuler, Robin Gosens; Alejandro Gomez, Duvan Zapata, Mario Pasalic.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta were one of the form teams in Serie A in 2020, though their campaign ended with a 2-0 defeat to Inter on August 1. PSG, meanwhile, were crowned Ligue 1 champions after the season in France was ended early, though have only played two competitive fixtures since March – however, they were two cup finals, with Thomas Tuchel’s side coming out on top against Saint-Etienne and Lyon, respectively.
Atalanta overcame Valencia 8-4 in the last 16 prior to the coronavirus-enforced shutdown, while PSG saw off Borussia Dortmund – coming from behind to win that tie.
