Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) showed a masterclass display to edged out Italian rival, Atalanta in the tensed encounter to qualified for the Champions League semi-final.

The Ligue 1 champions were 1 – 0 down until the 89th minutes of the game before producing a stunningly magical comeback against Atalanta to win 2-1 on Wednesday night.

The 27th minutes Pasalic’s first half goal seemed to be the winner with two minutes left.

However, the early introduction of fit-again Kylian Mbappe turned the game around for French Champions.

Marqinhos bundled home the equalizer with one minute left on the clock, before Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting tucked away from the winner from Mbappe’s cross deep into stoppage time.

PSG will now face the winner of the RB Leipzig/Atletico Madrid tie for a place in the final.
