RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann said he is "so proud" of the team after the club progressed to the Champions League semi-final.

"We're very happy and I'm so proud of the group. We defended with a lot of passion and were the better team against a very good and experienced side. We were brilliant," the club's official website quoted Nagelsmann as saying.

"We got off to a strong start and were highly-motivated. The boys stayed calm, which is great to see. I was happy that the match didn't go into added time. This way, we can save our strength for the upcoming game," he added.

In the quarter-final match, RB Leipzig defeated Atletico Madrid by 2-1 here on Friday.

RB Leipzig will now take on Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), who trounced Atalanta in their quarter-final match, in the semi-final on August 19.

Nagelsmann said PSG are a top-level side and his team will have to give their 100 per cent to advance to the final of the competition.

"Paris Saint-Germain are a top-level side with a top-notch coach. They have a lot of quality and are a threat right until the final minute. You saw that during the match against Atalanta Bergamo. They have a star-studded squad. We will need to give it 100 per cent, but we are looking forward to the match and will go in highly-motivated," he said. (ANI)
