The headlines went to Son Heung-min and Jan Vertonghen, scorers of the first and second goals, with the latter imposing himself out of position at left wing-back.

Goals from Jan Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente followed, and Spurs are now looking at their first quarter-final appearances since the 2010/11 season.

But for Spurs, their second-half performance and result against a side such as Dortmund is a timely boost going into a crucial period of the campaign, according to Hugo Lloris. Dortmund are coming off a shocking result over the weekend, where they blew a 3-0 lead to Hoffenheim to draw 3-3, minimizing their lead atop the table to just 5 points.

Tottenham went agonisingly close to opening the scoring in the seventh minute when Lucas Moura's volley fizzed wide of goal, the Brazilian having controlled Davinson Sanchez's header on his thigh. It's like we weren't comfortable. We were good in the first half but this is very bitter.

Bundesliga leaders Dortmund, eliminated from the German Cup last week, were nowhere to be seen in the second half, with speedy teenager Jadon Sancho given no space to operate after the break. "We have watched games back from the past where we have lost and we have taken a lot on board".

"This is a huge part of his development but nearly the next two, three years are more important ones", Jenas continued. I am happy with all the players.
