Real Madrid and Manchester City have advanced to the semi-finals of the Champions League after mixed results in the second leg of the quarter final matches played Wednesday evening.

Real played a goalless draw against Liverpool to qualify, while Manchester City beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 to reach the semi-finals on Wednesday night. 

The trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane could not score, though Liverpool created a couple of chances.

City first defeated Dortmund by 2-1 in the first leg of the quarter finals last week. With  a 4-2 aggregate, City cruised to the semi-finals to meet Paris Saint-Germain on April 27.
