Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s 92nd-minute strike secured a truly remarkable comeback as Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to beat Atalanta 2-1 and reach the Champions League semi-finals in Lisbon.

Thomas Tuchel’s side looked set for another agonising quarter-final exit after Mario Pasalic’s 27th-minute strike gave Atalanta a deserved half-time lead at the Estadio da Luz.

It appeared they had done enough to secure a famous victory, but Marquinhos levelled matter as the game entered stoppage time before Choupo-Moting completed the turnaround in a breathless finish as PSG snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

The Ligue 1 champions will face either RB Leipzig or Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Jose Alvalade for a place in the final in 11 days’ time.
