  • Paris led in the opening seconds through Edouard Michut but Oumar Diakite levelled late in the first half and with 18 minutes left Roko Šimić (son of Dario) saw his shot deflect in via the woodwork off Louis Mouquet before substitute Luka Reischl clinched victory in added time.
  • Salzburg were 2016/17 winners and that season beat Paris 5-0 in the round of 16 on their way to victory: in the last eight that year they faced Atlético, who they now take on in the Nyon semis.

Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Atlético

  • An early Bradley Fink penalty for Dortmund was saved by Alejandro Iturbe and then Javier Currás converted one for Atlético to end their run of three losses in as many quarter-final appearances.
  • The crowd of 19,300 at Dortmund’s main stadium was the biggest quarter-final crowd in the competition’s history and third best overall.
