Champions League: RB Leipzig, Atalanta reach first quarterfinals

The two knockout phase debutants both made it through to the Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday. RB Leipzig completed its victory over last season’s runner-up, Tottenham, while Atalanta never looked like surrendering its 4-1 first-leg advantage against Valencia in an empty stadium.

Two goals in the first 21 minutes from Marcel Sabitzer effectively sealed Leipzig’s progress, as it extended its 1-0 first-leg advantage to 3-0. Emil Forsberg made it 3-0 on the night, 4-0 on aggregate, with four minutes to go.
