Ambitious Monaco fighting on 3 fronts after 141 goals

Barcelona to fight for survival against Juventus as Monaco face Dortmund

Although the principality club have three away goals in the bank, Falcao says they must expect a renewed challenge from Thomas Tuchel's side as they chase a fourth Champions League semi-final appearance.

Wednesday's contest at the Stade Louis II was played in the shadow of the bombing that marred last week's first leg in Dortmund.

"We've got this out of our system now, and we're more stable emotionally", said Tuchel, who was speaking through a translator at the pre-match news conference.

Dortmund were earlier left unimpressed by their delayed arrival, which the Bundesliga club said in a post on Twitter was because the bus had been stopped by police "for approximately 20 minutes without justification".

The incident occurred a week after the first leg was postponed by 24 hours after the Borussia team bus was attacked with explosives on its way to the stadium.

"We are a very close group, we all want the same thing, we flourish together, and that's reflected on the pitch", the French worldwide said. "We stayed there for 16 or 17 minutes and when we tried to find out why they just said it was for security reasons".

"We've faced a lot of teams who have very good strikers and we know what to do", Reus said confidently.

Ossoff, she continued, "Would be another vote for Nancy Pelosi and going to Washington and saying I won't do anything. Ossoff is up against Republican Karen Handel in the 6th Congressional District runoff on June 20.

Reus, who missed the first leg through injury, is expected to be made available for the second leg against Monaco and could be a major factor in their bid to do the impossible. Monaco, which progressed to the Champions League quarterfinals after starting its campaign in the third qualifying room, has already played 53 times this season.

"Of course, we knew we needed an extraordinary performance, in all aspects in order to change the result from the first leg".

Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel decided to make an attacking change after 26 minutes, when 19-year-old forward Ousmane Dembele replaced defender Erik Durm.

Dortmund looks to recover after an lucky showing, which saw Monaco score on an own goal and another that was way offside.

"Still, it wasn't over then, as we could have scored three".

The Borussia Dortmund players have had to overcome a very hard situation this past week, but they would have been eager to get back to their best and make an impact in the away leg.

That strike meant Mbappe, who netted twice in the first leg, became the youngest player ever to reach five goals in the Champions League, beating Real Madrid great Raul by 41 days.
