Leonardo Jardim insists Monaco will not give up their attacking "DNA" when they welcome Borussia Dortmund for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday, despite their advantage in the tie.

Monaco were rewarded for a classy display as goals from Kylian Mbappe, Radamel Falcao and Valere Germain secured a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund and a place in the Champions League semi-finals.

"We have won nothing, but we have made history", declared Portuguese coach Jardim after the game, as his side extended a run that began in the third qualifying round against Fenerbahce last July, nine months ago.

The two-time France global lashed home a loose ball inside the Dortmund box, making him the first player to score in his first four consecutive Champions League knockout games.

"It was the worst thing that could happen a week after the attack - everyone was on the bus ready to go but we were not allowed to", said coach Thomas Tuchel.

"We know our qualities and we know what we have to do".

The Germans were up against it in the second leg having lost 3-2 at home last week, the match played a day later than originally scheduled after three bombs exploded close to the Dortmund bus, leaving defender Marc Bartra in hospital with arm injuries.

Just a week after the German team's bus was attacked by explosives en route to the first leg in Dortmund, the kick-off for the return match was delayed by five minutes. "We stood there for 16, 17 minutes". Monaco got past Fenerbahce and then beat Spanish side Villarreal to reach the group stages.

Monaco will discover their semi-final opponents when the draw is made on Friday, with Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Juventus also progressing.

Both sets of fans united in a touching show of support beforehand, singing the famed football anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone" as they raised scarves together.

There was a high security presence near Monaco's stadium on Wednesday, with armed police - some with automatic rifles - patrolling the vicinity. Mbappe slotted the loose ball into the bottom left corner for his 22nd goal of a breakthrough season that has made the 18-year-old arguably the most sought after young talent in world football.

Mbappe was sprung down the right channel moments later, but dragged his right-footed shot from an angle wide of the far post.
