Joaquin put Malaga ahead with a powerful strike

It was a night of drama in the UEFA Champions League as both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund scraped through to reach the semi-finals of the premier club competition as both matches produced an amazing 10 goals.

In Germany, Dortmund scored twice in injury time to snatch a dramatic Champions League victory over Malaga and secure a place in the semi-finals, reports the BBC.

Marco Reus and Felipe Santana struck as the German side brought to mind scenes of Manchester United's victory in the 1999 Champions League final.

After a goalless first leg in Spain, Joaquin scored for Malaga before Robert Lewandowski equalised.

Substitute Eliseu looked to have struck Malaga's winner before the late goals.
And in Turkey, Madrid survived a second-half onslaught from Galatasaray in their Champions League quarter-final to reach the last four for a record 24th time.

Cristiano Ronaldo silenced the Turkish crowd with an early volley which left the home side needing five goals after their 3-0 first-leg defeat in Madrid.

Galatasaray rarely threatened until Emmanuel Eboue's thumping strike before Wesley Sneijder steered them ahead.

Didier Drogba's backheeled third left Real rocking, before Ronaldo's second.
