Borussia Dortmund beat PSG to reach their first Champions League final since 2013 

Borussia Dortmund defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 on aggregate to make it to their first Champions League final since 2013. 

The Black and Yellow arrived at the Parc des Princes with a one-goal advantage thanks to Niclas Fullkrug’s strike in the reverse fixture in Germany. 

Luis Enrique’s side dominated territory and threatened to score on many occasions. 

But both sides failed to break the deadlock in the first-half in a tense game in Paris. 

Then just five minutes after the break, Mats Hummels popped up with a brilliant header to put his side two goals ahead in the tie. 

Warren Zaire-Emery squandered a good scoring opportunity before Nuno Mendes went close by striking the post. 

PSG thought they had made a big comeback in the semifinal when the referee awarded a penalty for Hummels’ foul on Ousmane Dembele but he quickly changed his mind and signalled for a free-kick just outside the box. 

The hosts threatened to score again but Borussia Dortmund ultimately held out to seal a 1-0 success, thus winning the tie by a 2-0 aggregate score. 

This is the first time they have made it to the Champions League final since May 2013 when Bayern Munich beat them 2-1 in London.

In the other semifinal on Wednesday, Real Madrid will welcome Bayern to the Santiago Bernabeu with the tie finely poised at 2-2 after the thrilling draw in the first-leg in Germany. 

Real knocked out Erling Haaland’s Manchester City out of the tournament and will enter the contest as favourites against the German giants.
