Spurs Edge Dortmund In Champions League First Leg (Video Highlights)

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have all but booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League following 3 nil victory at Wembley.

Goals from Son Heung-Min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente sealed a 3 – 0 first leg win over Borrusia Dortmund on Wednesday night.

Tottenham were lucky to go into the break level without registering a shot on goal all through the first 45 minutes while the Bundesliga giants wasted a lot of chances.

Spurs came out rejuvenated in the second half, Son converting the host’s first shot on goal as he volleyed Vertonghen’s cross into the net to give them an undeserved lead.

Toby Alderweireld almost doubled the lead but Roman Burki was on hand to keep out his header from a Christian Eriksen corner.

Mahmoud Dahoud should have restored parity but his effort lacked the force to trouble Hugo Lloris, the miss came to hunt him as Vertonghen made it 2 nil to Tottenham. The Belgian makeshift left wingback converting a Serge Aurier cross from the opposite wing.

Substitute Llorente headed in the third in the closing minutes heading in Eriksen’s corner to give the London side the advantage in the second leg.
