Monaco of France have booked their spot in the Champions League semifinals after defeating German side Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in their second leg quarterfinal tie which sealed them a 6-3 aggregate victory.

The Ligue 1 leaders, who entered the match with a 3-2 advantage, went ahead after just three minutes when Kylian Mbappe scored on a rebound to make it 1-0.

Colombian striker Falcao then doubled the lead for his side some 14 minutes later with an unstoppable header.

The visitors, however, managed to pull one back through attacking midfielder Marco Reus who blasted the ball past the keeper, making it 2-1.

But, substitute Valere Germain put the match to bed by adding Monaco's third in the 81st minute just after replacing Mbappe. With the win, the French team joined Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the last four of UEFA Champions League.
