Substitute Tyler Adams struck late to send RB Leipzig into the semi-finals of the Champions League on Thursday night.

The American's shot two minutes from time in Lisbon took a huge deflection on its way past Jan Oblak after Joao Felix had earlier equalised from the penalty spot for Atletico.

Leipzig initially took an early second-half lead thanks to a glancing header from Spaniard Dani Olmo.

Prediction: RB Leipzig 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Both sides have been in superb form since the restart and in the Champions League could be rated with an outside chance of winning the competition.

But under Simeone, the Rojiblancos have built a reputation for having a sturdy backline with a tremendous work rate.

A Leizpig side without Werner may struggle to breach down the LaLiga side's stubborn defence and this could be settled by a single goal.
