Juventus held Barcelona to a goalless draw at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night, ending their hosts' hopes of another sensational second-leg rally and advancing to the Champions League semifinals 3-0 on aggregate.
Kylian Mbappe made Champions League history as Monaco swept away Borussia Dortmund 6-3 on aggregate after a 3-1 victory in their second-leg quarterfinal tie at the Stade Louis II on Wednesday.
Radamel Falcao and Valere Germain added to Mbappe's strike, helping Leonardo Jardim's impressive side to the last four of the competition for the first time since 2004, when they reached the final before falling to Jose Mourinho's Porto.
And it was teenage sensation Mbappe who gave the visitors all to do after just three minutes. Benjamin Mendy made a powerful run through the midfield before lashing a left-footed shot that Roman Burki couldn't handle, and the 18-year-old France forward was there to slot home from close range.
The goal was Mbappe's 16th in 16 matches for Monaco and marked his fifth in the knockout stage of the competition, tying Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo this term. It also made him the first in Champions League history to score in each of his first four knockout games.
Marco Reus pulled a goal back for Dortmund three minutes after the break. Substitute Ousmane Dembele made a fine run down the right, edging past his defender near the end line before playing an outside-of-the-boot pass for the Germany international who fired his first-time shot into the top-right corner.
However, Germain put an end to any hopes Dortmund still held in the 81st minute, poking home Lemar's deflected cross from the left to complete the victory on the night.
