Quite a match between Atalanta and Paris St.-Germain today. Atalanta went up 1-0 early on, then a whole lot of nothing happened.

PSG exploded in the last minute, literally, scoring the tying goal in the 90th minute, then another one in stoppage time.

PSG moves on. Remaining matches in the quarterfinal:

Lepizig v. Atletico Madrid

Bayern Munchen v. Barcelona

Lyon v. Manchester City

RB Leipzig over Atletico Madrid, 2-1.

Big show is tomorrow, Barcelona, winner of the La Liga, vs. Bayern Munchen, winner of the Bundesliga.

Bayern Munchen crushed Barcelona, 8-2 (and one of Barca's goals was an own-goal by Bayern).

Today it's Manchester City vs. Lyon. Winner gets to be brutally slaughtered by Bayern.

Well, well. Who'da thunk it? Lyon beat Man City, 2-1.

On to the semi-finals. Paris St.-Germain vs. Leipzig and Bayern Munchen vs. Lyon.

Not an English, Italian, or Spanish team in the final four. Weird.

Well, Paris St.-Germain is in the final, beating Red Bull Leipzig 3-0.

Tomorrow will decide who the other team is, Olympique Lyonnaise (Lyon) or Bayern Munchen.

If you like soccer, tune in the second half of Bayern Munchen vs. Lyon.

This is a bloody master class. A great team and an invincible team.

Marcus Rashford repeated his late heroics against Paris St-Germain with a superb winner as Manchester United marked their return to the Champions League with a fine win at the home of last season's beaten finalists.

Rashford's stoppage-time penalty sealed a famous victory at the Parc des Princes 18 months ago and the England striker was again on target to ensure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side took maximum points from their opening match.

With RB Leipzig - semi-finalists last season - up and running with a win over Istanbul Basaksehir, it is now PSG who need to click into gear fast just to make it out of Group H.

The Final is at the Atatürk Stadium in Istanbul on Saturday 29th May 2021.
