Tyler Adams Scores Clincher to Send RB Leipzig to UEFA Champions League Semifinals

Tyler Adams shines on the big stage. 

The Red Bulls Academy and New York Red Bulls product sent in a deflected shot to propel RB Leipzig to a UEFA Champions League Semifinal, topping Atletico Madrid 2-1 in Lisbon on Thursday.

Adams came on for Leipzig in the 72nd minute, with the game knotted 1-1. Fifteen minutes later, from a cross into space from Angeliño, Adams teed up a shot from just outside the 18-yard-box and sent it in toward goal. The shot deflected and found the back of the net, the eventual game-winner. 

New York transferred Adams to Leipzig following the 2018 season.
