Borussia Dortmund delivered a shock 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in their UEFA Champions League (UCL) semi-final second-leg tie at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris on Tuesday.

Mats Hummels, the German defender, scored the only goal as Dortmund won home and away against PSG for the first time, sailing to the final on a 2-0 aggregate victory.

Kylian Mbappe was electric with the feet and was first to have a chance saved early on. The speedy winger also created chances for Vitinha and Dembele but both failed to make them count.

Karim Adeyemi was also thwarted by PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma as Dortmund attempted to take the lead against the run of play.

While PSG finished the first half the better side, Dortmund went ahead minutes later through Hummels. The 35-year-old defender converted a bullet header from a corner kick to hand the Germans a 1-0 lead on the night and a two-goal aggregate.

Mbappe and Vitinha further hit the post as the Parisiens crashed out of the UCL in tepid fashion.

The victory is the first for Borussia Dortmund at PSG, and Edin Terzic’s side are in the UCL final for the first time in 11 years, since 2013.
