Tottenham Spurs was magnificent in the second-half of their first leg match with the Bundesliga leader, Borussia Dortmund at the Wembley Stadium, England, in the last 16 games of the Champions League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side mounted a remarkable revival to advance from the group stage – and they made the most of that hard work to establish a perfect platform to reach the quarter-finals.
Spurs were irresistible after a tight first half, Son Heung-min breaking the deadlock two minutes after the interval with a side-foot volley from Jan Vertonghen’s cross.
Dortmund, playing a Spurs team missing injured skillful striker, Harry Kane, as well as Dele Alli, failed to respond to the Tottenham strike, making the home team end the game with a victory.
The outstanding Vertonghen slid in on Serge Aurier’s delivery and substitute Fernando Llorente headed in Christian Eriksen’s near-post corner – with Spurs also keeping a clean sheet to enhance their chance of progressing.
